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

If you enjoy waking up to one of the two ladies in the neighbour room dooing her morning toilet, and it sounded like she was doing it in your room, then this hotel is perfect for you. Ask for room 106, on the first floor, on the backside. It must be somthing very wrong with this room!! When we made... 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. As a light sleeper the wind & sea outside the window did keep me awake so needed my earplugs! Room 201 was huge- with everything you need -& also a... More

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!

Set into the walls of the Medina this riad has a great location. Reception staff were as friendly as they needed to be but I was kept waiting for almost 20 minutes whilst the lady talked to a friend / business associate in the reception area while I was trying to arrange a paid for upgrade. I initially paid for... More

We stayed at the lovely Riad Mimouna from late December 2014 to early January 2015. We were upgraded from a double sea-view room to a suite which was a lovely gesture and really made our stay extra special. The view from our room was simply breathtaking and I would recommend anyone staying at this riad to opt for a sea-view... More

This place has the most amazing location - right on the edge of the ocean and we had an amazing view from our room (309). The restaurant is on the roof top but really could do with a little bit of a face lift as it really could be fantastic but felt a little gloomy when it could really be... More

We wondered if we would ever find this riad hidden as it is in a narrow alley in the medina. Once found however we never got lost in our wanderings. Our room overlooked the sea and, as others have said, this has to be the only choice. We found many places nearby to eat so only had breakfast in the... More
