We spent two nights here during the Gnaoua Festival. The staff were welcoming and helpful throughout our stay. The Riad is beautiful inside and located right in the heart of the Medina. A short walk to the beach, restaurants and shops directly below. We stayed in a junior suite which a good size for four adults but was quite dark.... More

Lovely unpretentious riad with very helpful staff and great location. We really enjoyed the breakfast on the rooftop. Don't expect a fry now but we were happy with the fresh bread, Moroccan traditional pancakes and pastry served with jams and fresh orange juice. You'll get to know the local shop keepers when going in and out of the riad and... More

Just spent a couple of days here after the madness of Marrakech. What a great place! Right in the middle of the medina, close to everything. Surprisingly, the sounds of the street never disturbed our sleep due to the double glazing. Breakfast was more than enough to start the day well and the staff were lovely and friendly Have nothing...

We stayed here for 3 nights in early July and really liked the place. Location of the riad is great, just off a main thoroughfare in Essaouira right in the Medina. The staff here are very friendly and helpful. All rooms are upstairs and we chose a double room with view of the Medina which we booked on booking.com. We... More

I can't praise this Riad enough; At check-in the receptionist was cheerful and welcoming to us on our arrival - the check-in process was quickly completed and we were taken to our room to ensure it met our needs. The room was well decorated, had a double bed with small night tables at each side, a settee, coffee table, wardrobe... More

I booked this riad, because I was based in Marrakech and wanted to enjoy the coast for 2 days. I just checked which room in town could be low priced and didn't care about other criteria...and I was positively surprised! The riad is central located, colorful decorated (with love for details) and has nice small, but comfortable rooms. The receptionist... More

There was some very positive elements to our stay but some negatives too. One of the people who works on reception was lovely, she was very friendly and was happy to help us out, one of the guys working on reception wasn't so nice. The room was small but clean, though there were no light bulbs in the reading lamps... More
