I don't know about other riads in Essaouira but this one we have chosen was absolutely wonderful. It has a great position in relation with the parking, restaurants and everything you want to see in Essaouira, the staff and service was without a fault, clean room, well prepared for our arrival.

After being brought here by a guide straight off the bus, we were sceptical. But it turned out to be a lovely hotel in the heart of the medina, with a great cafe and restaurant below. Our room, although not the best location (adjoining the lounge area and 1 floor above the bustle of the street below) was nicely decorated... More

Situated in the medina, Dar Mounia was one of the highlights of our holiday. I can't comment on the accommodation but the food is amazing! The pastilla I had for lunch was easily one of the best meals I've ever eaten. My husband rated the coffee highly also and he's particular about his coffee!

One of the best meals that we had in Morocco - simple, fresh and delicious. Excellent local fish, cooked to perfection with plenty of vegetables all beautifully presented. A simple fruit-based dessert followed which complemented the main course. Well worth a visit if you are in town. Highly recommended.

We didn't stay overnight but did eat here a couple of times. Our first snack lunch was so good (veggie tagine & boulettes de poisson((fish ball tagine)) that we came back again after a shocking meal elsewhere! Fresh, really well cooked even if that atmosphere is pretty still.....

I stayed at the Riad with my boyfriend luckily only one night, the staff is very kind and the only reason my vote is idling. The room that has happened to us on the second floor was terrible. Dirty sheets, pillowcase of Cusino is a single piece of cloth that covers Mata surface on which rests the head and the... More
