Having previously stayed in hotels, this was our first time in a Riad and we were blown away at how we were looked after. Although the Riad itself is very beautiful, it's the staff that make the experience something special - they can't do enough for you, so getting everything you want out of your trip becomes so easy. We... More

This riad has convincing us from the beginning, it is generously built and you´ve always the feeling that you are in a private setting. The staff is very friendly and attentive. The rooms are tastefully decorated.

Just returned from a week at the Riad Chbanate. From the moment we arrived we felt relaxed and made to feel at home by the excellent Greggi and Samira. Nothing was too much trouble for them and the rest of the team. The breakfast every morning was first class, freshly made and plenty of it. The rooms were a good... More

From the moment we walked through the door we knew this Riad would be amazing. Fantastic location in the Medina, and the staff provided excellent hospitality and great recommendations (restaurants, hammam, walking/shopping directions). Our room was beautiful, with plenty of space and a lovely bathroom. The roof terrace is the perfect sun trap, even with a hot tub! Incredible breakfasts... More

Excellent Riad, as someone else wrote on here, don't think about it, just book it. I stayed for three nights with my wife and 7yr old kid. And as experienced travellers we all rated this as one of the best hotels we've ever stayed in. Hotel ambience was nice, nice music, nice atrium. Staff were incredibly friendly, helpful, hospitable. Their... More

This Riad is the perfect hotel experience in Essaouira. A fabulously renovated, unique, intimate hotel, right in the heart of the beautiful and relaxed seaside town. The staff were all super sweet, and took exceptional care of us, answering our every email promptly and giving us expert suggestions on dining and activities/sights around Essaouira. They were able to handle our... More

Riad Chabanate will definitely be our hotel of choice in Essaouira on future trips! We loved the spacious room with the large bathtub and the fireplace the staff lit for us every evening. A big plus: unlike most other riads at that time of year the room was heated to a comfortable temperature. Breakfast can be enjoyed on the sunny... More
