This Riad is about 12km from Essaouira in a walled compound of several small buildings. The accommodation is in traditional style, no TVs, no phones, and only a limited number of rooms. The main building is around a courtyard where breakfast is served, or you can have it on the extensive roof. Lunch can be ordered there too, and dinner on warm evenings. Otherwise there is ample space inside. The pool area is beautiful and calm, and the gardens a delight. The hosts, Dominique and Leah, are very attentive and know the area well for those who want to explore. We didn't because my travel partner is disabled, so days relaxing and the occasional trip to a beachside restaurant was the order of the day. All the staff were very friendly and helpful, a sign of a well-managed establishment. Both Dominique and Leah speak excellent English.
