Staying here in Essaouria was lovely. Sue and her staff made us feel really welcome and organised some awesome things for us to do! Go to the hamman - truly worth every penny! Argan Oil Visit - this was awesome! The quality of the products and the visit were lovely. Though we spoke very little french - we managed to... More

Thank you very much, and it is always good to hear that the HAMMAM and COOKING LESSONS are loved, and 'worth every penny'! The Argan visits are a new 'addition', and seem to be much appreciated by our guests - thank you! Looking forward to "your next trip".... From all of us at Riad Lunetoile More

I did have a good look at LuneEtoile's website before I went, but it did not prepare me for the gorgeous historic building and its setting within the picturesque lanes of the medina. The attention to detail not only in the refurbishment and furnishing of the riad, but also the services provided by Sue and the femmes de menages were... More

Thank You! It is always such a pleasure, also for us, when our guests feel totally spoiled, but comfortable and "at home", during their stay at the Riad. And yes, weather permitting, our SEA FACING TERRACE BREAKFASTS are sublime! So glad that you were able to enjoy Riad Lunetoile and Essaouira, at its SUBLIMINAL BEST! Come back soon! More

The decoration it's just unique. The service is so personal and friendly so as you can feel like being at home. It also has a gorgeous terrace where you can see the sea and be relaxed on very comfortable sofas, I loved it!

We got an amazing welcome from Sue and her staff! The Lunetoile was perfect for us after a couple of days in Marrakech. The Riad has a great location on one of the main streets with "everything" really close by. We would gladly recommend a visit to Riad Lunetiole to anyone!

What a lovely, thorough, and honest, approval! Thank you soo much! I have just tried to 'address' the 'thorough rub down', and asked both masseur and masseuse to buy the gentlest of gloves, and to go rather more gently, on the rubbing/exfoliation! And the end massage should be sublime!!! Many other guests have said so....so I am very sad that... More

Lune etoile is a wonderfull riad with a beautiful roof terrace where it's possible to take breakfast with a view of the sea. The riad is decorated with roses, fruits and has a fabulous moroccan ambiance.

Very comfortable and beautiful Riad in Essaouira. Owner arranged traditional bath at a local spot (I was the only non-local there) - very cool experience.

We had a bit of hassle booking our room, as the owner was ill and got confused about the booking. But we were met at the bus station by a member of staff who was very friendly and helpful who took us to the Riad. We had booked the top room/suite/apartment.

OUCH! That was harsh! I was extremely ill, but everything was organised and professional and welcoming, as it always is. You were met, as arranged, and taken back to the Riad, and sadly, on very windy days, we are obliged to take down the parasoles and take off the mattresses from the sun loungers, to prevent them all from blowing...
