Great place relax, we loved everything in this place. Amazing pool, beautifully decorated rooms and outside spaces. It is just great. The food and drink are all reasonably priced too. We would return to here again.

My boyfriend and i went to stay here in May to get away from the madness of London and we could not have asked for a more perfect holiday. From start to finish we were looked after as if we were staying at a friends house, and nothing was too much trouble for Dominique and her team. The food was... More

We visited Dominique's lovely home during a very windy couple of days but that did not ruin it one bit. This is an outstanding guest house (more of a home) with wonderful kind staff, delicious food, great facilities and a relaxing, comfortable, happy and safe environment. I travelled with my boyfriend and it was a perfect get away from Marrakech,... More

I celebrated my 40th birthday at Riad Baoussala - we rented the entire place and filled it with close friends and family. Everybody was overwhelmed by the magical attention to detail and the warmth of the staff. It was the perfect place to press pause and refuel, celebrate and dance, marvel at the stars and reconnect with the simple beauty... More

Spent 7 nights in the Marabout Cottage. Loved it. Hard to venture out as Baoussala was so relaxing. Stunning healthy meals so book half board. Visited with friends and we had wonderful hands of bridge with first class g&t's and nibbles in hidden away courtyards. The service was exemplary. Photographer's heaven. Super morning walks watching the herdsmen with their sheep,... More

Wow! Was our first impression of Baousalla, followed by 'result' we picked a winner of a holiday stay and felt so pleased, excited and interested at what else was to come and it didn't disappoint! Food, service and friendly staff together with beautiful surroundings and plenty of animals happy to interact with our 4 year old was a great addition... More

My wife and I stayed at Baoussala for 4 nights with our 3 young children (8, 6 and 4) and had the most perfect time. Dominique and Léah make everyone feel so welcome in this beautiful Riad and it was without doubt one of our favourite places we've ever visited. The room was perfect (we had the Blue Room), the...

We have just returned to the UK from Morocco having spent the first 4 nights at Riad Baoussala. We loved our apartment, The Marabout Cottage, which was spacious, clean, comfortable and decorated with typical Moroccan flair. The whole of the Riad was calm and allowed us to unwind as soon as we had arrived. I empathised with Dominique's ethos where... More

My boyrfriend and I had a wonderful few days at Baoussala and we were very sad to leave. Dominique, Leah and Rashid were wonderful hosts and there were so many little touches which made our stay very special. The food was also out of this world and amazing value. I cannot wait to go back and cannot recomend this place... More

Very nice Riad at only 15 minutes from Essaouira. Nice and quiet location, easy to reach by car. Beautiful gardens, nice warm swimmingpool and relaxing sunbeds. We have seen all the rooms and they are all nicely decorated and big. Every room has a fireplace. The food is lovely: a combination of French and Moroccan. A greay variety with every... More
