We stayed here for 3 nights in early March and had a very pleasant stay. The riad is located in the centre of the old town but in a quiet position with plenty of local restaurants and shops, etc., and with all the attractions of the town of Essaouira itself, within a 10 minute walk.
The bedrooms are laid out on 3 floors with the 4th floor being an open air terrace for breakfast and with sun beds. Our room was pleasant, equipped with heating if required and a good ensuite shower room. The ground floor has various sitting areas with an open fire for chilly evenings.
Essaouira is a pleasant small coastal town with a very lively fish market and lots of small fish restaurants which are well worth a visit. There is a long - over 1 mile - sandy beach and safe swimming, camel riding and quad bikes for the brave. The town is enclosed by high walls surrounding the town and laid out with cannon emplacements and main entrances.
All in all a very pleasant 3 days in a comfortable riad and with Essaouira itself well worth a visit.
