Thanks Sue, a warm welcome and a memorable stay! I loved everything about this Riad, and the picnic breakfast you can take up to the roof was great. The room was clean and beautifully decorated and the staff so helpful as well. Sue gives everyone a map with suggestions for cafes and interesting walks. She gives personal tips and advice,... More

"PERFECT IN EVERY WAY"... LOVE this Title!! Thank you! Happy guest=Happy Host! And we are HAPPY!! Essaouira is 'stairway city', BUT nothing in comparison to the steep, perpendicular stairways in Coimbra, Portugal!!! Ours, in Essaouira, are a BREEZE!! Almost Stairways to Heaven!! Hehehe More

We stayed for eight nights, with our three daughters, in appartment 5 + 5B. We would have liked to stay for more! When you step inside Lunetoile off the busy street (having opened the door with your own key), you step inside a cosy homely place, which smells clean and feels safe. The ladies are around all day if you... More

"We loved it"! Thank you soooo much for all the wonderful compliments, and we, too, loved having you, and your gorgeous family, staying in the top apartment. The rafia-wrapped rose-scented soaps, and petals, in the bathrooms, are just some of the many little details, which we hope, add to your feeling of well-being. We try to appeal to all of... More

This was my second visit to this riad. The experience, as the first time that I came in 2012, has been outstanding!! It is pretty good located, cleand and quite. Moreover, it has a wonderful professional team. Susan, the owner, is the best thing of the Riad!

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!
