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.

We were wowed by the write up before we arrived: elegant, unique, well-appointed. Unfortunately it didn't live up to our expectations. 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...

Beautiful accommodation, friendly staff, really nice breakfast on a sunny rooftop overlooking the ocean. A bit hard to get to, so grab a porter at the entrance, to help you with your luggage and direct you there (we didn't and walked around for ages with bags in hand).

After spending two days in Essaouira I really enjoyed coming back to Riad Mimouna at night. I would highly recommend getting a room with a view of the Atlantic, it is worth it especially if you love hearing the ocean at night! The rooms were clean, mine was small, but comfortable. Breakfast was included and seeing the ocean while having... More

We were shown to our room - & all I could utter for the first hour was 'Wow' as I took in the stunning views over the crashing Atlantic Ocean.

The location was convenient, the staff was helpful and the view was amazing! The only down side was the restaurant. It was not bad, but it was our least favorite of our entire Moroccan vacation. However, the room, view and service still make it a riad not to be missed!
