friendly people and above all a felling as if you are just at home where every single detail is thought over, that's the place! We even had our own fireplace (working!) and aroma-lamps filled with oils :) The super hospitable and charming really cares for his guests creating a relaxing welcoming atmosphere.

A great Riad with a great host! Made our stay in Essaouira so perfect. Lovely large airy Riad. Enormous bedrooms. Clean and furnished beautifully. Lovely terrace for breakfast and a separate terrace for sun bathing. Breakfast fantastic. Right in the centre of the Medina but just off the main streets so it is quiet and away from the hustle and... More

My wife and I returned last week from a wonderful 6 night stay at this really lovely Riad. Riad is spotlessly clean and rooms are very big. The breakfasts were excellent made fresh every morning by a lovely lady I think samira - which were served on the roof top terrace with view of the sea. We also had the... More

Beautiful riad, wonderful staff, great rooms. Lovely breakfast. Great recommendations and a pleasure to have stayed there. Always a smile, genuine warmth. Great library if you forgot your reading material. If I was to return to Essaouira, I would head back here!

We had an enjoyable stay at Riad Watier. The riad was spotlessly clean and very comfortable. JG and all the staff were helpful and friendly. The beds were comfortable and the breakfast was plentiful! Location very convenient for the beach and the markets.

I am currently planning my next trip to Esouira and while researching realised I had never written a review for Riad Watier. This is a real oversight on my part because it is a special place to stay. With its great location right in the Medina, its lovely light, airy spacious rooms and the wonderful roof terrace, where breakfast is... More

From the moment we arrived until the time we reluctantly departed, there was absolutely nothing about our stay that could be improved upon. Our room was large, beautifully decorated, clean, quiet, well-appointed and comfortable. The shower had great water pressure and there were no issues with hot water. The staff went well above and beyond. There was nothing that was... More
