We had a corner suite over-looking the ocean, and it was amazing. It literally made our trip worthwhile. The staff was excellent, the decor was almost regal, and the included breakfasts were on par with our other posh riads. However, all is not well: the price. This riad cost multiples more than any other place during our stay, which we... More

A large group of us stayed here- 2 adults and 4 teenagers. Hotel is stunningly well appointed in traditional moroccan style, beds comfy and very well cleaned. It's perched right on the cliff edge of the old town so very dramatic and amazing views. Delicious food in restaurant. Staff are lovely -couldn't have been more friendly and welcoming. We'll definitely... More

We were due to stay here for 4 nights, but the hotel was terrible and we did not enjoy Essaouira, so left after just one. The hotel is in the corner of the medina, a dark, unlit area that did not feel safe at night. There is endless rubbish and some building work taking place just outside the hotel. On... More

We received a fabulous service, the staff were very helpful, friendly and informative about the local area. Our room was simply perfect, we had a fabulous sea view, the sound of the waves crashing against the rocks was exhilarating. The location and amenities were excellent. We will definitely be visiting again in the near future.

Riad Mimouna is an amazing hotel. Right in the old medina & partly ON the seawall fortress of the village. It's so beautiful inside. Our standard room overlooked the Atlantic Ocean and the jagged rocky tide pools! The ocean breeze and sound of the pounding waves was magical!!! Nice comfy bed, very nice bathroom. This place is from another time... More

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.

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
