Great place in good location right in the medina. The manager Fatima is a nice person and keeps the place very clean and tidy. The rooms are large and well decorated. Only complaint was the breakfast was a bit boring no fruit just bready stuff which the Moroccans seem to love. Also you don't get a key for the front... More

Riad Amana is located in the old Medina in Essaouira. It is really easy to find, about a ten minute walk from the Supratours office. Once you are there , you are never more than five minutes from anywhere in the Medina , it is about a fifteen minute walk to the beach. The hotel is a large house on... More

Riad Amana is a spacious and very attractive riad in Essaouira, very easy to find and centrally located. The place was cold, as was our room, which was otherwise comfortable and had a boiling hot shower. There was no heater in the room. The place was also mostly empty for the duration of our stay which made it seem a... More

Only stayed the one night in the Sahara suite so did not get chance to meet all the hosts. Review should be taken in this context. Riad Amana was stylishly decorated and very centrally located for the Medina. We took the bigger suite at the top of the Riad accessed from the roof terrace. It was quiet and the massive... More

I stayed at Riyad Amana with my enganged and his mother last July and we felt like home. It is very clean and you can enjoy Essaouira every moment. Furthermore, Fatima, the owner, is a wonderful person, she was like a mother. My enganged felt sick and she took care of him every moment. We felt very happy every day.

I recomend this riad in the middle of the medina. This is a nice place to stay for people who want to stay in the centre of Essaouira. The lady in charge of the riad tries to make your visit more pleasant, offering her help for whatever you need.

I have only great things to say about Riad Amana - the riad is easy to find (as long as you familiarise yourself with the Essaouira map beforehand), the rooms are very clean and spacious, and best of all, the staff are incredible.
