Madada Mogador is ideally located just within the medina walls and fabulous views across the beach and fishing port from the sun terrace. There are seven bedrooms in total. For the sea facing bedrooms - there are two rooms on the first floor facing out to sea and three on the second floor - where two of them form an... More

We came from 2 lovely nights at Riad Awa in Marrakesh and found ourselfs not liking this hotel that much. The rooftop is lovely no doubt about it but thats about it. We stayed in a room that was so loud and noisy. We were waking up 10-15 times every night by doors slaming, people yelling on the street below... More

We stayed at the Madada Mogador in early Jan - a relaxing few days in Essaouira before the craziness of Marrakech. We stayed in the Assala room. A standard room but charming and perfect for our needs. Staff were all very friendly and gave us excellent suggestions for restaurants and a hammam spa. Breakfast was great especially with the company... More

We just returned home from the most wonderful week staying here. We had been to Essaouria before in a rented riad. This was a much better choice! A boutique hotel/guest house overlooking both the harbour and beach. Yes there is a park and some parking in between but this is a very real town and place to stay as opposed... More

We went to Essaouira towards the end of our Morocco trip and were looking to mainly relax. The rooms are spacious and have great sunlight. The rooms on the terrace are a little low on privacy - while the glass windows are opaque from the outside, it is still a bit creepy to laze in your room while the terrace... More

Hotel is in need of a revamp and lick of paint. Although the hotel is affiliated to the restaurant downstairs they are of very different standards, the restaurant has a much better decor and excellent food, though disappointed the cookery courses advertised were not running when we stayed. Photos of the hotel must be several years old and are quite... More

There are many positives already left here by other 'trip advisors'; we had a great stay here in a central location, but also affording somewhere to spend a peaceful day in the sun away from the markets of Essaouira. I have tried to add here some additional thoughts rather than repeat what you have no doubt already discovered. 1) If... More

Spent 7 nights with my girlfriend at Madada Mogador. The wife didn't know. Great food, great service, lovely atmosphere, lovely staff, great location. Not so cheap but also a wonderful view also. The staff couldnt do enough - they were really great.

Mogador Magada is an OK riad/hotel; we spent 4 nights there over the major festival period. It is marketed as a luxury riad/hotel. Strictly speaking, I would not consider this a riad in the true sense of the word,however, its position in the town is very good. Our room had a sea view and the terrace view again is very... More

beautiful riyad, wonderful non-intrusive staff ... wifi from lobby worked in the room, which was a nice touch. No tv and no telephone ... which was actually pretty nice !! Beautifully designed and painted riyad, using traditional 'tadelak' technicques - as a wall-finisher myself, I was entranced.
