Spent a marvelous evening in the Mumtaz Mahal restaurant. We ordered the hot and cold mezze arrangement for three persons and had a feest for the rest of the evening. Excellent Lebanese food, friendly and helpful service and a beautiful and peaceful environment. The best diner experience in three week's of Marocco holiday.

This is a really difficult review. We walked past this Riad last year when in Essaouira and planned to stay the next time we travelled to the city. Which was August 2014. We were only here for a short while and unfortunately it did not live up to our expectations. The courtyard and salon are stunning and we also liked... More

This hotel was a secret TREASURE! There were very few people staying there. The hotel was SO beautiful, gorgeous grand decor. The room was very large and again so elegant. The women in the hotel were SO helpful and accommodating and very polite! The internet only works downstairs but aside from that it was AMAZING! We couldn't believe our luck... More

Very good service by the young women in the lobby. Had nice breakfast (including small omelets) served on the terrace overlooking the ocean. Room was spacious, big bed and big bathroom with huge bathtub. Both riad and the room itself is beautifully and "richly" decorated. To us the location was superb, a few steps away from the most bustling area.... More

We had a lovely time in this Riad. We were having doubts after reading the reviews. But the service was great and lovely. I really don't understand what the previous visitors were talking about. We had a wonderfull room, just like the a 1001 night tale. Beautiful decorations and a lovely breakfast. I didn't go for the hammam and hot... More

A truly stunning looking riad which was perfectly located in the centre of the city. However, I've never experienced such awful service - the staff almost got everything wrong from the booking to the cost of our stay to not actually knowing what red wine was! It could have been amazing!

Sorry, I do not understand how so many visitors could rate this hotel as good. We arrived and found ourselves in a very old but beautiful oriental oasis. Based on the ratings, we thought about a nice hotel. But it was dark and smelly. Our first room was so smelly that the receptionist gave us by herself another room just... More

The location of the riad is great, just a few minutes walk from the beach and port area. The rooms are incredible. Huge, comfortable bed, and the walls and lights are beautiful. Big bathroom and excellent shower. We had a room that faced the street so it was a little noisy but nothing to complain about. We had breakfast upstairs... More
