Nice riad with friendly owners! Our room was clean but very small and the shower was a little bit uncomfortable. There is no air conditioning and the room was very wet, also the bad and the sheets. We needed to put our towels on the bed to sleep.

Friendly generous owner, discrete polite staff, lovely filles des chambres, small rooms but beautifully and tastefully presented - as is the roof terrace - well placed in the town, I loved it! will return. I felt I was in Morocco, not just visiting. Conseiller!

It's a charming place with a friendly owner and delightfully helpful staff. We loved the roof terrace where we ate good breakfasts and spent many siesta times relaxing up there. It's very well located in the medina within easy walking distance of the harbour and beach and all the medina shops and markets. Our room on the first floor was... More

Although it's right on the edge of the medina, the Emeraude is worth the effort. The staff are friendly, the rooms are small but clean with adequate bathrooms and plenty of hot water. A good breakfast is included and is served on the terrace.

It's important to read the review before you book this hotel as it's not worth the price !!! very cold rooms, wet stairs and the view from the terrace is awful .....very hard to find in the first place and the French owner was very rude ...I will.not go back there nor recommend it!!!!!!

Beautifully decorated, clean and peaceful. This comfortable riad was a great find. It's a little more expensive than others but worth it. Breakfast on the terrace was lovely. Thanks for a lovely stay. Oh ps only a little point but I had nowhere to put my toothbrush. Other than that brilliant!

we had a bit of trouble finding the riad when we arrived, however it is well signed so once we got our bearings we had no trouble spotting it. Breakfast included delicous pancakes and fruit which was more than we expected. The room was on the small side- however it was cosy and clean. The Riad is located along a... More

This place is ok, standard, adequate. The only reason I stayed here is because I was a solo traveller and wanted to taken advantage of the lower cost single rooms. But if I had my time again I would find a friend, split the cost and stay somewhere much nicer. The rooms are ok, kind of small, look like they... More
