Just returned from a 6 day break in Essaouira. We stayed at this enchanting hotel. I travel extensively with my job and I stay at boutique and high end hotels regularly and I have to say that this now ranks for me as one of the best. Beautiful, elegant rooms designed with class and understated charm. Each one different. A... More

We all were very proud that you choose our small boutique hotel for your interview on NBC and as well as to rest after 6 hard months working in Ouarzazate.

If you come to Essaouira, Riad Madada must be one of the best places to stay. We stayed two nights in "Mogador", a room which had a private terrace overlooking the harbour with no other buildings between us and the sea. This is a very stylish place but also offers great service (Youssef and Waafa were especially good along with... More

I stayed for two nights in Madada Mogador - a lovely beach front hotel in the small old town. Hard to find, like alot of Riads (it seems) the exterior is pretty modest and unassuming, and then when you step inside it opens up into a beautiful space with a lovely view facing out to two coastlines...not many hotels can...

Thank you for your lovely review both on our number one location on the old ramparts of the old medina and our efficient and discrete service that you enjoyed. The adjacent restaurant is our restaurant la Table Madada serving fresh fish and seafood directly from the harbour and some traditional moroccan food too. We hope to welcome you next time... More

My partner and I stayed here last week, for a week. We did the same last year. We love this hotel and everything about it. It is in a fantastic location overlooking the sea, with the ancient ramparts to one side on the edge of the medina. Essaouria is a real town so don't expect a paradise beach holiday although...
