Solo traveller, stayed one night. The Riad is located down a long dark tunnel, and I didn't feel safe to walk back after dark, so sat in my tiny, dank, mouldy smelling room that night eating a baguette. (Apparently there were meals available but only if you had ordered them the day before!) The shower sprayed directly out of the... More

Although the riad is not easy to find as newbie to Essaouira, once at the riad the experience is great. The riad even sent one of its staff out to meet is at the Medina door. The rooms are nice, cosy and clean. The staff, which has limited english, really tries to help and understand. The riad has a lot... More

We stayed one night at Ryad Lyon-Mogador in April 2013. First off, the owners are very friendly and allowed our kids to watch dvd's on the downstairs tv, the wi fi reception is great (one point on every floor) and the breakfast served on the roof tops was the best breakfast we had in Morocco by a long way. We... More

Run by a french couple, they look after you excellently. Also their staff are extremely welcoming and smiley. The breakfasts were varied and reliable. The room suited our needs. The riad was superbly located in the medina. The terrace is superbly high, and you get the best views in town. "Essay ira/Essaouria", certainly applies. The beach is a must. I... More

Hospitable owners who make a great breakfast that you enjoy on the rooftop with a lovely view. Unfortunately the bed in our room could not be accessed at the sides due to the narrow dimensions of the room, and the room cleaner moved our things around unnecessarily and even closed a suitcase on the shelf that was purposely left open...

Went to this riad due to the good reviews here, and I am not disappointed. It 's probably the tallest riad in Essaouira, the roof, most likely where you are going to have breakfast, offers a very good view of the city and the sea. (and the seegulls will try to take care of the leftovers of your breakfast) The... More

We took a gamble on Ryad Mogador, having seen it on Expedia. Having been let down by our original choice in Essaouira, we called them at the last minute and, a few minutes later, found ourselves stepping through the front door. We we delighted by it, especially by the hands-on hospitality of the owner, Didier and his wife. I loved... More

Really friendly family run Riad, in the heart of Essaouira's medina. Beautifully decorated and each room has a theme. Spacious and comfortable beds. Spectacular roof top terrace breakfast. Loraine & Didier go out of their way to make you feel welcome. Play room for young children, communal tv area and free wifi available. Would definitely recommend this Riad.

Clean, comfortable & stylish Riad in the heart of the Medina. Warm welcome & great hospitality throughout our stay. Inspired bohemian decor. The best breakfast that easily saw us through an active day. Would recommend this wonderful Riad to everyone & would whole heartedly stay here again on a return visit.

This ryad is a must stay! We booked for 3 nights and extended for another 3 as we absolutely loved it. We stayed in 2 different rooms during our stay and both were gorgeous, clean and comfortable with an elegant combination of moroccan and european styling. The bathrooms in particular are very stylish. The beds were comfy too and blankets... More
