I love visiting Essaouira but it seems that everywhere I stay feels damp. Trying to sleep in damp beds has ruined every trip for me as I'm a light sleeper at the best of times, so just end up feeling very grumpy all the time through lack of sleep.

I know it's due to the coastal climate etc etc but how do other people get around this problem - if indeed they experience it as a problem themselves?

Is there anywhere I could stay that maybe is a little further from the sea and therefore is not damp?

Any suggestions would be much appreciated.

Thank you.

I have stayed at the Medina Spa in June and no problem with damp - but I can well imagine riads in the town will get damp with the early morning mists - I wandered around with a jellaba on in the morning to keep out the cold damp air. So my advice is buy a warm jellaba and sleep on top of the bed covers. Venice can get damp as well - so had to sleep fully clothed - you won't totally avoid dampness in Essaouira.
