our 3rd visit to Lunetoile at New Year, we've stayed various rooms from the simplest (ground floor, shared bathroom) to the top floor apartment - all lovely, cosy, clean & fragrant; exceptionally helpful staff - many thanks, we'll be back!

Such an adorable place to stay, the location is great, the service is great, and most of all the Riad itself is just so pretty- all yellow and blue and homely. Its like they thought of every detail! We came here stressed from the mad rush of Marrakesh and it was a quiet heaven and totally affordable! They even have... More

Arriving into the Supratours station at dusk, things were pretty hectic stepping off the bus. Amidst the offers for taxis and bag trolleying we were appoached by the welcome sight of a Lunetoile sign held by the cheerful Kabira. The riad won us over from the start as Kabira had been sent to collect us and guide us through the... More

What can I say? Great write-up. Very explicit, and perhaps you should consider writing for a guide-book? Thank you very much - and we hope to see you again. More

I am thrilled, thank you, with this glowing report, and we will endeavour to continue to live up to your compliments! I, too, agree, wholeheartedly, with your description of our location, as being central, convenient and safe and quiet at night. Some guide-books, the LP versions, seem to be mis-guided, and unfairly mis-inform the public. Luckily for us, with Trip... More

Lunetoille has been one of the highlights of my recent month in Morocco. Essa is a must-visit spot, and this riad is perfectly located close to the center of the medina. Tastefully renovated, the riad is tranquil and peaceful: the perfect sanctuary after a day in the souks and around the harbour. Breakfast on the terrace in the morning sunshine... More

Lisa, a friend of us, stayed at Lunetoile and gave us the address. Thank you Lisa! We enjoyed very much our stay in Lunetoile. The old guest house is very beautiful and well restored.

We had a wonderful holiday in Essaouira and it was made perfect by the accommodation and the people we met there- Sue Hunt who owns it and the girls who work there could not have been more helpful. The house is utterly charming- the apartment, with its own little terrace, was a real retreat from the hurly-burly of the streets.... More

My girlfriend and I stayed here for a week and took advantage of the 'stay for 7 nights - only pay for 5.5' offer on the website. Located just outside the Mellah quarter of town, Lunetoile is ideally placed to escape the hot hustle of the days but is close enough to the centre of town with its markets, port... More
