This is a quiet, relaxing and beautifully chilled-out place - the perfect contrast to vibrant, hectic Marrakech. Our family spent 3 nights here in October and felt like we had come close to paradise - lovely spacious rooms, gorgeous pool and all designed to help you relax. Dominique and her team are so welcoming and friendly (without ever being annoying)... More

Bouassala receives very high tripadviser ratings, but we mark it as very good rather than excellent. The hospitality of the staff is truly excellent....Rashid looks after your every need with charm and politeness. The rooms and buildings are furnished very tastefully, if a little faded now by the Moroccan sun. We visited in November, when it is cool in the... More

The Riad Baoussala is possibly the nicest hotel I have ever stayed in - the ideal place to get a break, take a deep breath and enjoy! Beautiful buildings with charming and spacious rooms, great pool, wonderful gardens and last but not least: Incredible food!! Loved each and every meal... and felt very much at home. It's a small paradise,... More

We spent four wonderful days at Riad Baoussala at the end of OCtober 2014. We were immediately made to feel welcome and part of the Bauossala family - to the point where I fell asleep on the roof-top terrace within 30 minutes of arriving! Dominique, Leah, Rasheed and the team did everything they could to make us feel welcome and... More

You reach this "riad" down a long & windy road - but it's worth it for the relaxing paradise revealed when you step through the front gate . Quirky but beautiful accommodation offerings, very friendly staff and outstanding food. It makes visiting Essaouira worthwhile.

We recently spent 5 nights at the Riad Baoussala and had the most wonderful and relaxing time there. All of the staff are very lovely and welcoming and every meal we were served was absolutely delicious. The Riad and grounds are great and very well kept, especially the pool which we spent most of our time in and around! We... More

We spent three wonderful nights at Riad Baoussala at the kind hospitality of Dominique, Leah and Rashid. Our room (the Blue Room) was wonderfully quirky and was a welcome relief after three days on the road. The grounds are beautiful and the swimming pool area such a relaxing environment. We had anticipated spending more time in Essaouira itself, but having... More

We fell in love with villa Baoussala and it's incredible people. The first time that we went there for a holiday was magical. The atmosphere is charming, friendly, and very welcoming. Dominique & Leah have made this tranquil place into a Moroccan little gem. We decided to do our wedding here and specially Leah has been very helpful for organising.... More

We had 6 days of bliss at Baoussala, we stayed in the Marabout suite which is a beautiful self contained cottage - perfect for my wife and I, and our two girls (ages 8 & 6). Leah was such a lovely host unfortunately we didn't meet Dominique as she was away in France, but all the staff were lovely and... More

We arrived in Essaouira by bus and were greeted by a taxi arranged for us by the Riad. Upon arrival at the Riad we immediately felt relaxed. The walled complex offers something for everyone from comfy sofas in the courtyard & deck chairs on the terrace to hammocks and sun loungers by the pool. The room (we stayed in the... More
