Riad Baladin quickly felt like a home away from home. The rooms are cosy and very tastefully decorated, and the roof terrace is ideal for catching some silent rays of sunshine. Tempting to spend much of your time lazing about the place, but Nicole will ensure that you make the most of your holidays with great recommendations for excursions and restaurants and shopping nearby. I stayed at 2 different riads during my time in Essaouira and wish I'd spent my whole time at Baladin. Nicole's care and personal attention gives Baladin a warmth and atmosphere of welcoming that is rare, and definitely makes a difference in terms of feeling at ease and at home while traveling.
After leaving Essaouira I went to the desert for a few days and she gave me amazing tips on where to stay on my way there and back, as well as helping me to rent a car for the trip. When I got lost trying to find one of the riad's she'd recommended I didn't hesitate to call her to ask for directions. She definitely goes beyond just making your stay in Essaouira one to remember, she seems personally invested in making your whole holiday an amazing experience.
Thanks to Nicole and all of the wonderful staff for such a great memory and hope to see you again soon!
