This riad is an oasis in the medina. Helpful and very attentive staff, lovely room with plenty of space and a gigantic bed which proved extremely comfortable. Everything was very clean. Can definitely recommend.

Spent 3 nights here last week during a fortnight holiday in Morocco. Our room was superb with a huge bath and there were lots of wonderful toiletries. The staff were absolutely fantastic and so helpful. The riad is in a great location with parking close by.

Stayed two nights here and it was awesome. Noel and Greggy are true stars and looked after as very well. Room (especially the bathroom) was very nice. They even upgraded the room for free which was very nice of them. Riad is close to Supratours bus station so you can walk to riad easily.

My girlfriend and I stayed here for 3 nights in early November. We'd just spent 4 nights in Marrakech and were ready to leave the bustle and relax by the coast. Essaouira was the perfect place to do that with the charm of the typical Moroccan souks (just on a much smaller scale than Marrakech) and a beautiful coastal location,... More

Riad CHBANATE IN ESSAOURIA providedd an outstanding experience to our two week stay touring Morroco. This riad is gorgeous. Clean, open but private, a great fireplace and above all a very helpful staff. The riad is convenient, close to the gates, parking and in a great place in the medina. The staff was very helpful in directing us to a... More

RIAD CHBANATE - What a room we had at the Riad Chbanate; huge and with a walk-in bathroom with a very large round shower/tub, larger than any bathroom we have ever had. But even more memorable were the all female staff members whose lively and happy chatter during meal preparation and general cleaning was so infectious as to be a... More

Essaouria is a living breathing medina with souks for the locals. The warren of back streets is much smaller than Marrakech but as it's less touristy its more real but a little more edgy at night. The hustle and bustle and scooters and cats are escaped by entering the riad. Ahhhh bliss. The service is warm and friendly. Much more... More

We spent three days here and wish we had stayed here for the entire week of our holidays. The decor is top class and fantastic! Every attention paid to keeping things just the way guests would want it, fires burning in the living room, cooking that is out of this world - breakfast choices that just keep coming; nothing is...

We can't sing the praises of Riad Chbanate enough. It is a gorgeous riad with the kindest, most attentive staff. The rooms are beautiful and it's a great location in Essaouria. It is perfect for a romantic holiday (we are at the end of an extended honeymoon). The rooms look exactly as pictured,..beautifully furnished, and romantically laden with rose petals!... More

we spent 5 days in this hotel on last september and were very happy of our stay. Rooms are of high standing, clean and very nicely decorated with morrocan style. The whole hotel is very cosi, and the staff discreet and highly competent. Very good knowledge of the area and recommandations on what to do or see in the surroundings,... More
