We initially thought the size might be too big (there are 10 rooms) but on entering our incredible suite, we were bowled over. The rooms are all individually decorated with wonderful artworks and there are very comfy beds. The owner, Jean-Gabriel, is an excellent host. It is like popping round to a friend's house, no airs or graces, no favours, just simple hospitality.
We stayed for 4 nights and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. Essaouira is a friendly, bustling town and Riad Watier is set in a quiet part of the town. We enjoyed wonderful breakfasts on the rooftop patio watching waves crashing in the distance. The staff are, without exception, extremely professional, warm and friendly. We ate dinner on two nights and found the cooking to be very good (we would particularly recommend the absolutely delicious courgette starter)
This is definitely a place we would like to return to on our next visit to Morocco.
