“Great little place”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 14, 2013

My family and I really enjoyed our stay in Essaouira. The location of the Riad was excellent being inside the walled part of the city near the port and all of the action. It is down a tunnel and a bit hard to find if you are not looking for it. The staff was very friendly and professional. The rooms are very thin but we spent little time in there and the terrace had plenty of room to stretch out. However, the view from the terrace was not great . I would like to see better lighting in the rooms. The low light made the rooms seem a bit dirty even though they looked well cleaned upon closer inspection.

1 of 5 stars Reviewed September 29, 2011

this small riad is one of the cheapest alternatives if you choose to stay a few days in essaouira, it is situated in a dark street in the old medina.
The only problem is that i have settled my bill in cash on the day of departure and what a surprise three days later to find they have billed me again on my credit card.....
A very bad experience and I still don't know what to do against them as I didn't request a receipt....
