What a wonderful discovery this beautiful city on the coast has been! We are well travelled, but both my husband and I find Essauoria to be one of our top top favorite places in the world! Come! stay! Explore! Play! Adventure! My daughter is a bit of a princess and a little hard to please... But she squeaked with delight... More

If you are looking for a nice and comfortable place to stay in the old Median, then look no further. Me and a friend stayed here for 2 nights. It was quite empty as it was during Ramadan, and Hayat upgraded our room for free. The place is very clean and comfortable, and the roof terrace is beautiful. We also... More

Ryad Watier is a lovingly restored old Islamic school, situated in the heart of the medina. Its art-loving charismatic owner Jean-Gabriel, and his delightful assistants Hayat and Adeline, welcomed us with drinks and biscuits on the sun drenched terrace. Our bedroom was very spacious and comfortable. We even had our fire lit one night to make it more cosy for... More

What a perfect stay in this charming place. Sunny riad, full of paintings, nice staff, everyday was a different tone on the magical "palette" of Essaouira. Breakfast time there, up on the terrasse, is the best way to start a souiri day.. By the way, this hotel is so different than others, cause the owner pay attention to every guest... More

We have just returned from Essaouira and stayed at the riad for 2 nights. Our room was just perfect for the4 of us and we all slept so well. The room is very calming so ideal when you've been in the hustle and bustle of the medina. The staff there are so helpful and took time to give us directions... More

We stayed recently for two nights, and concur with the other reviews about the helpful owner and his assistant, Hayat. We enjoyed a spacious room, loved the breakfasts on the terrace (the cook gets up early each morning to make a delicious farina pancake called A Thousand Holes) complete with homemade marmalades and jams, fresh orange juice, crepes, etc and...

We stayed for four nights and had a fabulous time. It is a great place to stay within the city walls and all the staff were welcoming and helpful. The rooms were spacious and creatively designed which added to the calm atmosphere. Breakfasting on the roof is a real treat, looking out across the town is a great way to... More

Stayed for four nights over Easter as part of an 11 day tour. This is an oasis of calm and tranquility inside the city walls. Very well located Jean Gabriel and the staff are all very welcoming and are rightly proud of what they have created. There is a lot of attractive art work around and the Riad is reflective... More
