If you like being inside the Medina, this is a great place to stay, close to the gate near the port and quite simple to find, especially if you call them and ask someone to come and get you, who helped with luggage too!!! There was somewhere close to park overnight too and of course you are right in the... More

Really enjoyed our stay here, the staff were excellent and very friendly. The riad is traditional Moroccan and very nice, would heartily recommend. Essaouira itself is very interesting and the restaurant prices are very reasonable and the food, on the whole, very good.

My girlfriend and I heavily researched hotels in Essaouira as we required peace and relaxation away from the hustle of bustle of the still wonderfully stimulating Marrakech. I booked the hotel and was sent an email asking if I required a private transfer from Marrakech which I accepted for 140 EUR return which is amazing value considering it's three hours... More

If you like the sound of waves crashing on rocks and watching the sun set over the ocean, book a room with a sea view. Palais des remparts is definitely excellent value and ideally located within the medina walls and walking distance to the main square, beach and fishing port. Service was great, fruit and water upon arrival and clean... More

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...
