We stayed in Madada for 5 nights and if you're not a cat lover don't go to Morocco, there are cats everywhere!! This boutique hotel was great and we ate breakfast on our own private balcony every morning as the sun came up. Fantastic views of the beach and sea, the staff were very very helpful, couldn't do enough, great... More

This is a great spot in Essaouira. Perched on top of the walled city, it's an oasis of calm among the hustle & bustle of daily life in the streets below. We were greeted by the concierge, who resembled a mischievous genie that had just appeared from a magic lamp. After the obligatory paperwork & mint tea, she whisked us... More

My best friend and I recently traveled to many cities in Morocco and this one tops the list! A hippy, artsy, beach town, Essaouira is not to be missed. We also also picked the best location to stay. Modada Mogador is charming and lovely, with friendly staff, a beautiful ocean view terrace, and a very chic and cool restaurant right... More

My best friend and I travelled through Morocco for two weeks and Essaouira was our favourite place and that was in part due to our fabulous stay at this hotel, which is centrally located in the town. Our room was clean, comfortable, and well maintained (I particularly liked the towels). We had the benefit of being "upstairs" so our room... More

What a joy to be in Essouira after the madness (joyful though) of Marrakech. The medina and souks are less hassle and much more full of local people and fewer tourists. Madada Mogador is in THE PERFECT location. Fantastic terrace overlooking the sea and beach. Great restaurant next door (A Table). Superb friendly service. We'd love to come back.

Staff is outstanding, very professional, friendly and helpful. The cats are friendly too. Location is central to everything Essaouira has to offer within easy walking distance and great access to beach, medina, and harbor. The roof terrace makes it the best for viewing the expansive beach and picturesque harbor. Our room was oversized, bed comfortable and furnishings delightful. Only regret... More
