A really well equipped level access and private spot. We are a family of 5 with kids 5 8 12 and it was perfect for us, together but with space and a few mod cons. Kitchen was well equipped and kids adored the house cat.
Raid support cannot be faulted, housekeeper was kind and lovely.
Only criticism is location, due to a cafe/ undercover bar just around the corner. 2 out of 4 nights were very noisy pretty much all night. We also witnessed in the same area people openly sniffing glue, buying what we are pretty sure was drugs and the general feel in that bar area was basically a bit dodges. We did not see this as blatantly anywhere else during our 12 day stay in essaouria. The grand finale to this was a murder on our last night in that area! However we never felt threatened, always safe with the kids and we are not so naive to not realise that this goes on in all towns cities across the world. To be honest it was the effect on our sleep that caused the only distress and we ne'er stand that the police are aware and monitoring and we did feed this all back to said the manger so hopefully it will be resolved. We hope so, because we would go back if we felt assured of this. So we would recommend checking this out when booking.
