The staff were friendly and welcoming with good English, and told is the best sites and restaurants in Essaouira, which were excellent. The rooms where sizeable, clean and light and had everything we needed. Location is fantastic, will be recommending this place to family... 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...

We are well into our last night of 5 fantastic days at this riad. Owners Ernest and Giselle have done a remarkable job of building this riad from scratch and have furnished the 2 buildings with beautiful artefacts including carpets from Iran. Their staff are friendly and always ready to help with any queries we have had. Special mention to... More

We stayed at the Riad Perle d'Eau for three nights in Essaouira in September. We chose one of the interior rooms, which had gorgeous traditional Moroccon decor but no view. Nonetheless, this was a good value for the price and the owner Ernest was a delightful, engaging & helpful host. We enjoyed the mesmerizing view from the terrace with the... More

This riad is a very relaxed place in a great location. It's located directly at the waterfront. Probably the riad's strongest asset is its awesome terrace at overlooking the ocean. It's a great place to watch the unique Essaouira sunsets. My room was very spacious and quiet, and perfectly clean. As it was in the second of the two houses... More
