Spent 4 days in a sea-view room at Riad Perle d'Eau and had a lovely stay. Friendly, personal service from Ernest, Giselle and the team and a great room with a lovely view. Excellent location also, just tucked away from the main streets.

The Riad Perle d'Eau, our home for 10 days in Essaouira, is charming, secure and just 2 minutes easy walk from the Souk (the bustling heart of Essaouira). Surrounded by many exceptional restaurants and rooftop cafés you'll never be short of somewhere to eat, although, if you can, eat in. Promise, You'll not be disappointed! Rooms are immaculate, very comfortable... More

We spent 3 days in this beautiful Riad in Essaouira at the end of a two week trip around Morocco. Built right into the wall of the medina we could open the large windows and feel ocean spray at high tide. Knowledgeable Swiss owners. Our large room had a king size bed and seating area and fantastic ocean view. Situated... More

C and C Such a relief from the dark, low, narrow, alleyways of the medina of Essaouira to pass through the solid timber door to what is a magic place, peaceful courtyard with roof terrace overlooking the Atlantic, If you can convince Ernest, your host and his staff in Riad Perle D'Eau to prepare a meal, especially fish, you will...

Perle d'eau in Essaouira was a welcome respite from the hustle and bustle of Marrakech and Fes, and a perfect way to end our 16 day trip to Morocco. Ernest and Gisele welcomed us into their home, furnished with many of their own treasures for 3 lovely days and nights. Ernest loves to tell you about Essaouira and particularly the... More

We stayed here for 6 days and 5 nights this past October (2014), and it was the absolute high point of our month of vacationing in Portugal, Spain and Morocco. Gisèle and Ernest, the Swiss owners and hosts, start your day with a roof top breakfast cooked to order accompanied by a view directly overlooking the crashing waves and the... More

Upon arrival, we were convinced to upgrade to a room with view towards the Atlantic Ocean, which turned out to be a fantastic idea! The room was facing the ocean from 0 metres distance, however a few stories up. The sound of the waves and observing the extremely varying tides are grear! The room was nicely decorated as was the...
