My father and I stayed here all of last week. The Lyon-Mogador is perfect. Didier and Lorraine were amazing hosts, both really interesting to chat to and super helpful, giving us awesome restaurant advice and knowing where to buy everything for the proper price! I went to bed looking forward to the rooftop breakfast everynight. I will certainly be back. Thanks guys!

Spent four days here and found it to be the perfect riad!

Not easy to find at first unless you take a map or get shown the way to the door...once there however, really welcoming place with lovely owners. I was given a map and some information by Didier while sitting on the roof terrace with a pot of mint tea...perfect!

Room was perfect for me...good facilities and free wifi meant I could use Trip Advisor to decide where to go during my stay!

Breakfast on the roof terrace each morning was excellent...more than enough to start the day off!!

Only a short walk out of the medina to the lovely beach and after a ten minute walk, you can call in at Palma Quad to book the three hour ride out!!

I would definitely recommend staying here...I intend to return in the future!

This is the perfect place for anybody who wants to know Essauira. Easy to find from the gate where the taxi leave us, close to the port and the beach.
The building itself is well mainteined and Didier and Lorraine as well as the other staff were very helpfull and nice. The breakfast on the terrace was the best one i have in Morocco, it was apitty that my stomach was not very good(be careful where do you eat fish and be sure that is fresh and just made)
a wonderful place in a marvellous city(for me the best i visit)

An incredible hotel situated in the middle of the medina. Very nice rooms but most important a very cosy familial atmosphere. Didier and Loraine are admirable persons plenty of energy and enthousiasm. Their tips were most useful. They can be sure I'll come back!! thanx alot Didier and Loraine.

Room Tip: ask a room with a lot of windows...

This was a very pleasant riad in the medina/old town of Essaouira. Both the owners (Didier and Loriane) were very welcoming and helpful. The riad is clean and the terrace has great views of Essaouira. Although the noise wasn't very noticeable, if you'd prefer the quietest room possible, request one not facing the street.

We stayed here for 2 nights and we really enjoyed our stay. The owner Didier was very helpful and all the people who worked there were lovely and friendly. Our room was nice - it had a bath which was a first for us in Morocco! It was nicely decorated & clean. The breakfast was absolutely delicious. The wifi worked very well and they offer a service to clean your clothes at 30 dirhams (no matter the weight). A really good location right in the centre of the medina. We would definitely stay here again.
