I chose this place based on trip advisor reviews & to be honest was surprised that this could be #1. We have stayed at other riads in other areas which were so much more beautiful with really warm, helpful staff who know you by name (especially because most riads only have 6-10 rooms). The room was pleasant but with a damp smell. A few basic touches missing from the room like towel holders, a door on the bathroom (not so great when you've returned from a big meal & want some peace & quiet away from others!), a cupboard to put your luggage in.
Having said that, the breakfast were yum, the room with a fireplace was cosy & the rooftop terrace was sweet. Greggy, the head of the hotel staff, was so friendly & helpful. He truly made our experience in Essaouira memorable. He recommended a few restaurants that were excellent & a hammam spa to try.
