“wonderful boutique hotel”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 27, 2013

What a great place to stop for a relaxing break - fantastic location on the ramparts. Reading on the roof terrace is pure pleasure. We had the Madada room, which was a choice we did not regret - staff were happy to serve breakfast on the private terrace whenever you were ready for it, making for a great start to the day. Staff were very helpful, spoke fantastic english and gave a very useful orientation session on arrival. Within easy walking distance of everything in the medina, beach and harbour.

A great boutique hotel within easy walking of everything. From the staff to the views & the resident cats who knocked on our door . . . everything added up to a great stay. We were there for 4 nights. Breakfast was served on the terrace which sports a wonderful view of the beach & it was a good way to start every day. The rooms are quiet & well-appointed. Highly Recommended.

We were very impressed by this small hotel. On arrival (first floor) reception we were struck by the small 'bijou' nature of the hotel. Our room (5) was upstairs leading off the main terrace so with sea view - but not overly large. Our room was very good (no TV or phone) and well appointed. However, what elevates this property is the excellent service and the link to the simply outstanding La Table restuarant downstairs (owned by the Madada M's brother). The staff at MM were always friendly, helpful and extremely accommodating. The hotel is constrained by the sheer size of this old property so the most is made out of the limited space and it's very well done, but congrats to all the staff for making this a really great stay - would definitely recommend and return!

My wife and I got to spend 3 lovely days at the Madada Mogador in Essaouira. This stylish retreat is in a wonderful location in the Medina. The room was wonderful and had its own private balcony. Great for a refreshing Moroccan mint tea. The staff were friendly and helpful. They made tea whenever needed. Their recommendations for restaurants were spot on and they booked them for us each time. The restaurant downstairs is spectacular and we had a wonderful 1st dinner there.

I would highly recommend getting the Madada staff to book you into the cooking class downstairs as it was an excellent experience! They even take you on a tour of the spice market!

Overall superb place to stay!

Room Tip: We stayed in the Madada room which was wonderful!

I recently spent a truly romantic and delectable evening at this hotel with my husband.

We ate dinner in the La Table restaurant located beneath the hotel - this restaurant is a "must" even for those not staying at the hotel.

With a comtemporary, yet relaxed and elegant style this restaurant positvely induces one to kick -back and indulge all the senses; quite a feat of decoration and thought as it is a very large space and yet invites a wonderful sense of warmth & intimacy; the orange embers of the fire in the corner beautifully mirroring the touches of orange accessories scattered about the room.

I dwell a little on the aesthetic of this restaurant as it is crucial to the experience of eating here and extends to the food and service - which was impeccable from first to last. Fresh and delicious food served with a sincere and welcoming smile on the part of all the staff. "Mabruk" to the sibling team and staff who run this show !!

Two glorious weeks at Madada Mogador: the perfect room with breakfast on our terrace in the morning and a cosy log fire in the evening. Meals at La Table, just next door were delicious, so the perfect combination. Run by brother and sister, Christine and a great team: Pauline, Wafaa, Mohammed and Aziz. Nowhere else to stay in Essaouira!

We recently spent three nights here in one of the suites.

The location is perfect, in the ramparts of the town, and the riad itself is very stylish. Style sometimes triumphs over substance (a beautiful stone bath with a hand shower, but no wall fixing so you have to hold the shower rather than having the option to stand under it), but it's no more than a minor annoyance.

The restaurant is also very good.

I'm sure we'll be back
