The riad is on a quiet back street. Staff were super nice. We rented the smallest and cheapest room and it was still lovely (the top floor). Despite some reviews that said the top floor did not have wifi, we found that to be untrue - we had great wifi. The bed was exceptionally comfortable and room tastefully decorated. Nice... More

This was our second time staying here. Brilliant location right in the heart of the medina. Friendly and accommodating staff who were so kind as to feed us an early breakfast. Looking forward to returning again some time in the future. Clean comfortable beds and traditional Moroccan treats for breakfast.

We stayed many places in Morocco, but El Paco was our favourite from all! The location is very good, easy to find in the medina, so close to the beach and all attractions.

Enjoyed it very much, nice room, well decorated. Khadija is adorable, always available to send you to the right restaurant or give you information about Essaouira and the region. The riad is spot in the centre of the Medina in a quiet street, and a pleasant short walk away from the beach. Will definitively stay again.

One of, if not the most beautiful place that we stayed in in Morocco. Natty was very helpful and the breakfast was good while the room was exceptional The balcony is nice also while the Riad is very near the city centre

Paco is a great host and all the staff is nice and kind. The location is great, just 1 min from the heart of the Medina and 10 min walk from the beach. I found the room very neat and elegant, the absence of closet was not a problem for me. Bathroom was a little bit small but it's a... More

All in all a great place to stay. Very cheap, excellent service, central location and nice atmosphere. We enjoyed two nights in this Riad, and as a family of three, with a 1,5 year old boy, we couldn't be more happy.
