We stayed for 2 nights on the top floor which we arranged beforehand as we were told these had sea view rooms. The rooms themselves were lovely with amazing views. They were clean when we arrived and we were provided with tea and fruit on arrival. The staff were very friendly and really helpful. One lady in particular was so... More

we stayed here while in Essaouira and were very happy with the quality and value offered. we also ate a couple of times at the restaurant and would recommend it. if you can, get a room with a view to the ocean, it's definitely lovely and don't miss having a beer on the terrace at sunset! overall: 9/10

Located inside old medina, the best terrace view for sunset. Room is spacious and clean. Breakfast was very good with lots of varieties. There are many cute shops, coffee shops, restaurants near the riad. Only 10min walk to the beach, 10 min walk to the bus station. If you like shopping, Essaouira is more relax than Marrakesh. People are not... More

This turned out to be perfect for our 3 nights in Sweera. We took the bus and where the taxi drops you off its a super short walk. Take the second alley on the left in the corner and head towards the wall. Perfect location and right next to the ramparts. The staff was impeccable from the front desk to... More

I took a group of 12 people there in May and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The rooms are charming, the breakfasts delicious. They like to serve breakfast on the rooftop terrace but it was too windy so we enjoyed it in the ground floor patio. Dinner there was also very good. The location is excellent, so close to the...

This hotel is fantastically located behind the city's ramparts, a stones through from the sea, and nestled deep into the medina, within seconds from tasty restaurants and tempting trinket stalls. Breakfast is served up on the roof offering a great view of the sea and city, and the hotel staff are second to none with their friendliness, and they all... More

We stayed here in June 2014 and were overall very happy with our choice. The service we received from Anwar and the other staff was excellent. Anwar chatted with us whenever he saw us (speaks excellent English as did the lady at Reception who greeted us on arrival). We had one evening meal at the restaurant and it was good.... More
