We (me, my husband and 2 young boys - 4 years and 1 year old), stayed here in late October. The helpful owner arranged our airport pickup, then we were greeted by a chap who happily wheeled our luggage and 2 boys through the winding maize of the Medina to our home. Our arrival was easy, friendly and stress free... More

Fantastic place to stay. Very relaxed in the middle of the old Medina. Loads of twisting streets to explore. You might need a ball of string for the 1st 2 days. We had the lower ground floor with access to the enclosed courtyard garden with a corner dip pool. The bonuses are the 2 friendly tortoises although the small one... More

We stayed for 9 nights on the first floor and for most of the time we were the only occupants. It was a veritable oasis of calm. We had access to the garden and pool which in September was a lovely temperature. We spent most afternoons there after a morning of wandering around the streets of the medina "window shopping"...

Everything about this Riad was excellent. The beautiful, spacious building has an excellent sun trap garden and nice size pool to dip in. I would highly recommend this if you are visiting! Prime location and a couple of tortoises roaming the garden!

We stayed at the Riad des Palmiers with another couple during the Gnawa music festival in May 2015. For most of the time we had the riad to ourselves, It was the perfect place from which to explore the town and attend the many concerts that were taking place. At the same time it offered a peaceful retreat from the... More

What a wonderful gem of a Riad! We could not have asked for more. We had the top floor of this lovely Riad with own entrance, two double en suite bedrooms, really tranquil large sun terrace with sea views and a well equipped kitchen all set around the central hallway. The bathrooms are great - good to have a bath... More

This self-catering riad couldn't have been a better place to spend 4 nights as a family. Our children (3 and 5) loved it: the plunge pool, the garden, and especially the tortoises! It was such a tranquil place and a beautifully presented riad, in a very convenient location in the medina. We stayed on the ground floor, which was great... More

My first trip to Morocco! On route to Essa from Marrakech our taxi driver told us we'd enjoy a holiday here because it was 'tranquil' and he was certainly right! Although the streets in the Old Medina can be crowded, the people are friendly and welcoming, the cats even more so, and generally there's a relaxed pace of life. The... More

We are a group of eleven friends who have been going away together for twenty five years. The Riad was voted our best trip yet! We were made to feel very welcome and took advantage of arranging for Fouzia to cook our first meal for us when we arrived. This was served in the very pretty garden - a wonderful... More

Stayed here for 3 nights just before Christmas and had an excellent stay. We were in the ground floor of this beautifully restored building and had access to the stunning garden and roof terrace with a great view which even in December was lovely to sit out in the day. The pool was lovely to look at but a bit... More
