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

Stayed here in Nov 2014 for in total 8 days, with a number of friends, that were helping HSAM with the street dogs and cats. After a hard days work I really looked forward to coming back to the Riad des Palmiers. The architecture of the building is stunning, and each room has been tastefully decorated to suit the building.... More

We rented this lovely home for a week. We didn't need the entire 6 en suite bedrooms, over three stunning floors, but my party of four like space and privacy. This is my fourth visit to the town, the first time I stayed in a famous central Riad hotel (dark, noisy and overpriced), the two following visits, in a modern... More

I stayed at Riad des Palmiers with my family - we were a group of 6 people and rented the whole house. It was a wonderful place, bright, spacious and beautifully designed and decorated. The rooms are spacious with good beds and comfortable en suit bathrooms. The garden is a gem with the little swimmingpool, that made my granddaughter very... More

We had the apartment on the ground floor and it lacked any privacy. All the noise from the upper floors flooded down. It was also not very clean. On the positive the location was good. I think it is only a good option if you rented the whole house.

This riad is close to the sea and the market. Its a very big place with lovely rooms all with en suite and comfy beds. The maid cleans the house every morning. You get a lovely breeze in the night when you open the windows. The garden is lovely with chairs,table,a small pool and two cute little turtles. The kitchen... More
