My boyfriend (28) and myself (27) just got back from an amazing week in Essaouira. We did the six day surf and yoga package. The day started with a beautiful breakfast then meeting all the other surfers at 10 and driving in the 'wave hunter' to the best surfing spots and surfing all day with a break at lunch. Then...

I recently returned from a 7 night stay with the Surf Essaouira crew and was very enjoyable! The accommodation in Riad Jade was really pleasant, the staff were super friendly, bed comfy and location in the centre of the Medina was perfect. We also hang out at the Surf & Chill hostel with Saeed and the crew after a long... More

We loved the Surf Essaouira team! Our Guides Youssef and Simon were fun! We stayed in a Riad in the Medina it was pretty good the wifi only worked in the "lobby" and there was a weird smell that also lingered there. However it seems to me that depending on your price range and needs they put people up in... More

I really had a perfect time with Katherine, Simo and all the other guys who try to make your stay as comfortable and great as possible and you feel welcome from the first time you arrive. I can highly recommend Surf Essaouira when you want to have a comfy great chillout surf-holiday... More

Excellent service! There is always someone to advise you or arrange anything for you! Rooms are a bit small but super clean (as the rest of the hostel). Great location in the Medina, close to the gate (so easily accessible without guide)! Walking distance from all the points of interest in Essaouira. I strongly recommend it!

I just spent a week with Surf Essaouira. The holiday exceeded all my expectations. From the moment you book with these guys, you feel like a guest of honour. Everything is amazingly well organised, but what made it really special is the personal touch in every detail. It was my first time in Morocco, and i was by myself. Katherine... More

We booked the surf + yoga package and we can really recommend it! The surfing was great and Youssef (our surf teacher) was really nice and patient ;) The yoga was the best thing you can do after a full day of surfing! Mahatara (our yoga teacher) was lovely and she explained everything very good! Thanks a lot to Katherine,... More
