3 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

I booked this hotel online through Expedia and I was mistaken in thinking that it would be a four star hotel. Like other guests, I saw the word 'Palais' in the title and assumed it was a little grander than the most basic of establishments. This is a BASIC hotel. The showers hardly work. There're was LOUD gnaoua music until... More

I booked this hotel on Expedia and had mistakenly thought it was a 4 star hotel. In reality it's about a 2 or 3 star. Very basic. And in no way a splurge. Shower hardly worked. Rooms had a plug in electric heater which was hidden away in a cupboard. So first night was freezing. TV didn't work. Breakfast was... More

My husband and I visited here recently. The staff is nice and helpful. The breakfast on the terrace is really good with lots of choices and a great view! The elevator ride up is a little scary because it's eerily small. The room itself looked a little tired and dark, and could use a little updating but still keep the... More

The location- in a quiet street in the Medina. The entrance of the Hotel is beautiful. Traditional courtyard with basin. The view on the ocean. We were lucky to have a room on the terrasse where we had a view on the ocean. The rooms are all very different. We stayed on the very top floor in a beautiful room... More

A very nice place to stay in the old city, with a quiet rooftop and a great view on the sea. We were in the smaller rooftop room, but comfortable enough, and had the pleasure to listen to the wind and the huge waves in the bad weather of the last November days. Essaouira is also a nice city to... More

We spent two nights at the PDR and found the all the staff very friendly and helpful-no problem was too hard to solve. The reception staff and doorman were always on hand to help. The room (204) was large and roomy with a large bathroom. The room was on the alley side of the hotel but we did not experience... More

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

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
