We had a 2 night break at this riad, it was all organised Oliver (the owner) whilst we were in Marrakech staying at his other riad (riad dar najat). This riad is so nice, it is in a very peaceful part of the medina, it is far away from any noise but close enough to the shops and all of... More

We stayed at this riad for 3 nights, and wow what an experience is was. The location was great, it was in a quite street but still in the middle of the old medina of Essaouira. The riad itself was really nice, it is decorated all over with original African artwork. The riad was clean and kept to a high... More

The service was excellent and staff went out of their way to be helpful. I found the rooms quiet, clean and well maintained. The splendid view from the riad’s terrace of the quaint and historical city of Essaouira and the ocean is a must see. The owner, Olivier, is super helpful and will arrange trips, guides, transport and even introduce... More

Perfect for a group to stay, the Riad Bab Essaouira provides excellent value, wonderful service and excellent local knowledge for your stay in this pretty coastal city. Check out the works of art throughout the riad. All created by a great local talent, and these pieces lend themselves perfectly to the vibe here. Very cool, and perfect for a relaxing... More

I had a short stay in this Riad when it had just opened, and thought it was excellent.. Oliver, the owner made me feel very welcome and met me at the bus station to take me to the Riad. The room was spotlessly clean and comfortable..... Hot water was available at all times....The food was great!!....all freshly cooked while I... More

I was recommended to go to this place by manager of Riad Dar Najat which is always honest with his suggestions of activities inside of Morocco. I knew Essaouira before and so it was really low risk trip for me to have a good time there - but things came better than expected! Arriving there we have been guided to... More

We stayed at this riad for 3 nights, it was so cool there. The riad has recently opened and everything looked nice. Our room had everything in it (including a flat screen TV). There was a power shower and even a lounge area for us to relax in. The terrace was quite a large area, there were sofas that you... More

This riad is in the heart of the medina of Essaouira. It is a 5 minute walk away from the main beach and port area. The riad is located in a quite area of the medina, there is no noise around the riad at all, it is pure bliss. The riad has been tastefully decorated and everything was like new.... More
