Our room was spacious and comfortable (and Hayat even lit a fire for us in the fireplace in our room). It feels like lots of love has gone into the creation and maintenance of the Ryad. Hayat was very helpful with recommendations and sorting things out for us. Rooftop breakfast was a brilliant start to each day. Would definitely recommend... More

A stylish, welcoming riad in a central location, right in the heart of the medina, which is still - somehow - incredibly peaceful at night. Spacious, sumptuous rooms. Unfailingly helpful & friendly staff, always happy to suggest fantastic places you can go, eat, drink in Essaouira. Great value for money. And you get breakfast on the roof terrace looking out...

We ended our 11 night trip to Morocco with three nights in this wonderful Riad, we were welcomed immediately by Hayat who seems to do everything and be everywhere! Our room was on the first floor, very spacious with a lovely sitting area and windows overlooking the courtyard. The bathroom was delightful, a great shower with natural products provided which...

I had a fantastic time at Riad Watier. I felt immediately welcomed and felt at home. Thanks a lot to Jean Gabrielle and the lovely Hayat. The breakfast on the beautiful roof top was fantastic. One evening Jean Gabrielle organised a wonderful cous-cous dinner for all the guests, and this was a special and wonderful experience. The house is very... More

Everything was perfect. Over-sized room was handsomely decorated. The bathroom was clean and well organized. The roof top garden and serving area was outstanding. However, the most memorable part of our stay was the inter-action with the hotel staff. I was greeted on a daily basis by the owner and AlHayat a charming lady.

A smart, clean comfortable Riad all managed by tip top host Jean Gabriel. Our room was large and so well appointed, service was great and could see the sea from the breakfast terrace. Would go again for sure......

We are two adults and three teenagers and spent three weeks in Marocco in August 2015. This Riad was an excellent choice. The warm welcome and hospitality during our stay was great. The breakfast was really plenty, delicious and of wide choice served on the roof terrace with a beautiful view to the sea. The location is great, directly in... More

We stayed for a week at this Riad in the heart of the medina. Jean-Gabriel went well out of his way to be hospitable and to help us, for example offering a lunchtime meal and resolving problems with the wifi when we arrived. The rooms were beautiful, we asked for a quiet room and certainly got one. Breakfast every morning... More

This is a real adventure, well, not like fighting off pirates or climbing Everest, but still exciting. You are deposited by your car outside the Medina, and met by a 'baggagiste', who piles your luggage into a barrow, and leads you through narrow streets and alleways to Riad Watier, and the warm welcome of Jean Gabriel. The Riad is beautifully... More
