My wife and I stayed here for 2 nights in February 2013, arriving in a hire car direct from Marrakesh airport (about 3 hours) - the riad is very well located away from the hustle of the main retail areas, but just a few minutes walk to everything including the large square between the medina and the port. We had the 'suite' on the top floor, which was excellent, and enjoyed the adjacent roof terrace (available to all guests). The owners, who took it in turns 'mind the shop' are both lovely helpful people - with good English. Would highly recommend this if you are staying in Essauoria. And Essauoria was probably our favourite place that we visited during our week in Morocco, I'd want to stay longer than 2 nights on another occasion.
NB, parking was easy, just outside the medina (we were directed to park on the pavement, I think the cost was about 5DIR per day) - a porter was instantly on hand with a trolley for our luggage, and led us on the 10 minute walk to the riad; the riad have their own also, which we used on departure.
