Lets start with 5*, which is what the property should be, due to its positioning right on the outside wall in one of the best areas of the Medina. Subtract one for getting an upgraded double "ocean view" room that stares at a wall and you can only see the ocean by looking at a very sharp angle. Subtract 1... More

Beautiful palatial Riad, staff are friendly, rooms are large and comfy. The food on the rooftop restaurant is excellent and moderately priced. The rooftop view is worth staying in this Riad for. I found the staff to be polite and courteous and although a little understaffed it did not detract from our enjoyment. For a relaxing break in a beautiful... More

This was my third trip to Essaouira and while it has already sealed its reputation as my favorite city in Morocco, I still found something new to delight in with a stay at this hotel. The staff were so kind, the rooftop deck was glorious (and meant I spent more time in the hotel than I otherwise would have), and... More

This riad is special. All my family loved it. The location in in the medina close to the ocean. Service was excellent, breakfast diverse with the perennial fresh orange juice. The dinners were delectable and my family decided to have my birthday dinner there rather that leave the riad. An outstanding experience.

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
