L'etoile de Mogador is not easy to find, even for locals. Make sure you are dropped off at the Bap Marrakech and then get a guy with a trolley to take your luggage (20 Dhm). Authentic rooms but comfortable. Good bathrooms. Roof terrace with sea view (when you stand up). Loved the breakfast (pastries and fresh orange juice, excellent coffee.... More

Right now, relaxing at a posh riad in Marrakech, I'm actually missing L'etolie de Mogador. It is such a sweet place, very much in keeping with laid-back vibe of Essaouira. I had the room on the roof which meant I always had a view of the water. All guests can come up to the roof to chill out on the... More

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

Good Riad with friendly staff who are very helpful. Nice clean rooms with plenty of space and furniture. The breakfast is lovely and come on a gorgeous roof terrace. Beautiful. 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
