Beautiful and peaceful riad with an excellent location in the medina of Essaouira. We discover this place thanks to some surfer friends who recommend it to us. Our stay was better than expected. Susanne and the friendly staff make us feel like home. The best part is the breakfast in the sunny roof terrace! I will certainly come back :)

My husband and i spent 5 nights here with our 6month old baby. It was a perfect home away from home! Our room was spacious and clean, great for the baby with a nice wooden cot and a bath, not often provided. Across the hall we were also given use of a kitchen area to prepare food for the baby....

WOW! Soo glad that you appreciate ALL THE EXTRAS! I am presently travelling in Thailand, and I SOOOO miss a good welcome, a refreshing drink, a map, and an explanation and orientation!!! I, too, believe that a warm welcome and a hot or cold drink goes a long way to perk up the tired guest! And then, to arrive in... More

Great value and service. Beautiful room and lovely staff. Kabira and Susanne were very helpful and accommodating. The breakfast was very good also. There is a beautiful sun terrace on the roof to relax and read. We really enjoyed our stay and would certainly recommend Riad Lunetoile

We were scheduled to stay 3 nights but only stayed two. The staff was excellent. Kabira and Latifa went out of their way to make the oat-bran, that I brought from home each morning. Latifa met us on our first day and had a charioteer to take us down the long winding streets of the medina. Our French was limited... More

I chose this riad after reading the great reviews of welcome and friendliness. There were a couple of reviews that weren't so great, that mentioned Sue not being there. She wasn't there when I visited either, and I think this made the difference between OK, and really good. In general the place is fine. I was met at the bus... More

I am very sorry that you feel this way. Actually, everything is EXACTLY THE SAME whether I am there or not! The only very slight 'niggle' could be IF a guest speaks absolutely no French and has NO COMMUNICATING skills, nor desire to make the effort, because my staff DO actually speak a little English, and, where there is a...

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
