We loved the beautiful view from the terrace over the sea, the location of the riad, calm and brightness as well as the beautiful interior! Our hostess Geraldine (the new manager is French) was lovely with us and full of good advices for us to discover Essaouira. We left delighted ! Many thanks to all the staff for your hospitality,...

This place is beautiful - the colours, the traditional Moroccan style bathrooms and the views from the roof terrace is incredible. The rooms get cleaned during the day and if you go in a quiet season you can get reduced prices. I wish I'd stayed there for longer - very relaxing place.

I'm sad to say that I didn't enjoy my stay here. The view from the terrace was wonderful, the staff were warm and friendly and the location was great! I was cold in my room, very cold and didn't enjoy using the fleecy blankets as they seemed quite dirty. The bed was dusty and the sheets were stained and ripped.... More

This place is a hidden gem. Location very convenient and quiet. Staff very friendly and cheerful. Completely hassle free. Wonderful rooms with traditional funiture and fittings. The roof terrace with sea views is delightful. There are fresh roses in the room and rose petals on the bedside tables. Really enjoyed everything about this place.

Stayed in this riad for 6days in early oct. checked a couple other places and this riad seemed the best deal. Great rooms, good bathrooms, good service, I will definitely be back at this place when I'm in Essouria again.

I wish there was a "good" rating and not just an average and very good category because the "good" is what this hotel deserves. In the centre of the medina (old town) only a stone's throw from the seafront, tucked in a side street with a stunning view from the roof terrace, the friendliness of the staff add to its... More

Stayed here for one night. Room was extremely basic. Couldn't hang the shower, we had to hold the shower head. Breakfast was good, we got baguette, fresh orange juice, honey, jam, butter and a pain au chocolate. Staff was very friendly. But I wouldn't recommend it since it was so basic. One tip: bring a sweater! Despite the fact that... More

I arrived with a school group. A fantastic place to stay right in the heart of essaouira. Great value and delightful and clean rooms all en suite. If you can get either room 7 or 8 on the roof you really will have a treat. We found a nice simple breakfast could be arranged but plenty of other options are... More

Hi All, we spend 2 nights in this hotel in April 2013. The hotel rooms are clean and quite large. The service is good and the location is central but quite at night. The price is fair. No breakfast or dining service but in Essaouira there are plenty of great restaurants that can satisfy the most demanding customers!

Last week we've stayed her with a party of 11. We could rent the place for an exceptionally good price. The roofterras gives you an excellent view over the sea and the rooms are clean and tidy. The service of Senegalese Adam was great and we had loads of fun with the other personell too! Next time I visit Essaouira... More
