My wife and I stayed here for a night in May 2015. We had a corner room with amazing views of the ocean and shore line. The rooftop terrace also has great views. The room was large and comfortable. The service at the front desk was great - very helpful in booking a hammam visit and with other tips. Bathroom... More

This Riad evokes mixed reviews. On the one hand the Riad is difficult to find as it is located in a cul-de-sac inside the Medina within the old city of Essaouira. There are no cars allowed inside the Medina , so you are on your own in finding the place, carrying whatever luggage you bring on foot. If you're lucky... More

On the positive side: Good location in the heart of Essaouira; friendly and helpful staff; rooms with sea view; nice breakfast room on the upper floor with sea view; On the negative side: Rooms and public areas are quite dark and dim; smaller refurbishment, lightning and modernisation works would definitely help to improve the place; in comparison to other hotels...

Loved this riad. Had room 109 which was traditional and you opened windows onto the sea crashing below. Could even have a shower with the window open and see the waves outside. Comfy bed, cleaner did a great job. Take your own hairdryer if you dont like the ones you have to keep your finger on the button and we... More

We had a lovely room with a great view of the ocean and small islands. There was also an excellent view from the roof terrace/dining room. That said this Riad is at the far end of the medina so you have longer walks through narrow alleys to get to most places. The Riad had great potential but was a little... More

Nice riad conveniently located near everything. It's just by the city's sea walls and has a roof deck with amazing views. It's quite large with grand lobby and sitting area where we drank the obligatory mint tea. The rooms were large, comfortable, and quiet. The desk staff were fantastically helpful!

This 33 room riad is really a hotel built against the sea. Unfortunately this means it is at the other end of the Medina reached by a network of small and winding alley ways. Not something that a single woman would find comfortable late at night. I would stay at the top of the Medina or just outside. There is... More

A beautiful Riad more like a first class hotel. Fabulous views over ocean from bedroom window. Nice terrace and restaurant overlooking ocean. Delicious breakfast with eggs - unusual. Overall a luxurious stay. Large bedroom and bathroom with two basins. Also bath with shower and bidet.

Reception area is a bit dark and gloomy, some staff were friendly, some weren't, bedroom was in need of a lick of paint, the wind whistled through the bedroom windows at night because of gaps, breakfast was dull, the...
