This is the second time I have stayed here with a group and the Manager very kindly located us all on the same floor. Very easy going and helpful staff. Breakfast was good and fresh. The roof terrace is huge and gives great views of the town. The hotel's location couldn't be better, right in the middle of town. The... More

This unspoilt Riad is in the heart for the medina, one step outside and you are in the hustle and bustle of the medina, and only about 5 minutes walk to the historic port. The staff are very helpful and nothing is any trouble. The thick walls keep the interior cool, with the shady areas brightened with vibrant artwork and... More

Me and a few friends stayed here for a night on our visit to Essaouira. It was a comfortable and calm location and not far away from the beach and port. Essaouira can get quite chilly in the evening. Nevertheless it was a lively town. The breakfast at the Riad was a delight. There was no wifi away from the... More

My wife and I stayed here one night and really enjoyed it. The room was large and comfortable and you could not ask for abetterlocationin Essaouira. The staff, particularly the front desk, was friendly and helpful. We were sorry to leave.

We spent two nights here in March 15. Room on the top floor. Good wifi reception in the room. The staff were fine without being exceptional. The shower was little better than a dribble for the two days that we stayed. Location is great, hard to beat, though it was a bit noisy at times during the night. Breakfast was... More
