The best things about this Riad are the staff, very helpful and friendly, and the view, near the sea and the remparts. Besides that, it feels like the Riad has lost its glory days. It's old and not very tasteful. The breakfast was poor and we found a cockroach in our bathroom. Gladly, we stayed just one night.

I stayed here for two nights in May 2015. The hotle was not so easy to find alone so I reccomend using google maps or asking a wheelbarrow man for directions if you pay. My room was not ready to check in after my 10am landing but they happily let me leave my luggage in the hotel while I had... More

Its a very homely and cozy hotel with a lot of traditional features. Rooms were big, clean and the hammam like bathroom was great! Location is right in the medina with everything on walking distance. Breakfast was good (mostly traditional pattiserie). Great view from the top floor! Staff also were very friendly and helpfull! I recommand this hotel to everyone

We stayed there for one week. Our room was in the roof terrace on the 4th floor. it was very spacious and on previous visits to Essaouira we have stayed at 5* star riads but in our view this accommodation was better. The sea view from our room was truly magnificent and each day was cleaned thoroughly to a very... More

I have had the pleasure to stay at Palais ds Remparts during the festivities of the gnaoua festival two weeks ago. The reception and service where very good and staff when out of their way to assist you in everything that I requested. Local tours were directly organized and even customized to my own preferences. Room was very spacious and... More

This Riad was a real surprise, we were dropped off by a taxi (one we picked up for ourselves, as the one ordered from hotel did not appear at airport, which was good as this was 200MD a 100MD cheaper than hotel had quoted), at a large square near the port, and our luggage was handed over to a man...

I should actually be raving about them because when we checked-in they upgraded us to the junior suite for free which was fabulous because the room was actually really big and nice. What turned me off though is that the staff are not really friendly specially the people at the breakfast area. One day we had a buffet breakfast and... More

Well, what a disappointment – we were duped by the internet and had to live with our poor choice as we paid in advance. The location is good but then the whole town is small and easy to manage , when we got out of our transport a strange man took off with our bags and we had to run... More

This is a late review but better late than never! I arrived in Marrakech amid the teeming rain in November 2014. It was starting to clear up as I got the (local!) bus from Marrakesh to Essaouira. I felt such a delight at being out of that aggressive city (totally unlike my experience of 30 years previous). When I got... More
