It has taken me too long to write this review as we stayed in february of this year but from the more recent reviews I see the place is just as amazing! We wanted for nothing. Jean and his incredibly attentive staff did everything to make our stay sublime. From the incredible meals(we tried breakfast, lunch and dinner!) to the warm and welcoming common areas to the amazing tub, there is nothing negative to say. My husband and I have travelled extensively and this was our best experience. February in Essaouira is perfect. The sun is warm and inviting. We were surprised to wear everything form our bathing suits to leather jackets and scarves in the evening. Visit Essaouira and this Riad, you will not be disappointed.
