Stayed there for 3 nights in June. It was quite difficult to find amoungst the allyways within the town walls so would recomend aquiring a map for it before you arrive. Very good location ie 5 mins away from the beach. Staff were very friendly, rooms were clean and breakfast on the terrace was awesome. Only downside was the noise... More

On arrival the lady at reception sorted us out with things to see and do, places to eat. They even sorted out surf board hire and lessons. Excellent place to... More

We really enjoyed staying at this riad as the room was clean, very spacious and nicely decorated (flower petals on the bed, flowers on the table, all the basic necessities available). The staff is very friendly and welcoming. We enjoyed our breakfasts on the terrace which was really nice as you can see the ocean and sit in the sun... More

My boyfriend and I were nervous about booking hostels - never having done a gap year or traveled before. This hostel could not have converted us more! The place was clean and tidy, the staff were incredibly friendly and helpful. Breakfast on the rooftop was delicious and very relax and Essaouria itself i would highly recommend. I would defiantly come... More

We were met at the bus station to be shown the way, they called our Marrakech riad for us to organise a pick up, any information we needed,... More

I arrived at the Riad L'Etoile de Mogador at 10pm after arriving from Marrakech on the Supratours bus. I had emailed the Riad a few days before to let them know that I would be late and to ensure that there would be someone there to let me in. They replied to say this would be fine. Unfortunately when I... More

This place certainly exeeded our initial expectations. Located just inside the walled town, in easy walking distance of the bus station. Loads of character and charming, easy going members of staff. The guest rooms are arranged around a beautiful central atrium with communal lounge areas. Our room was quite long and deep with just one small window to the street,... More
