This is a peaceful guesthouse a block away from the medina. It's easy to find, the neighborhood is quiet, and the rooms are amazing. If possible, try to get the room on the roof. Assilah is a serene little town with a clean, hassle free medina. So far I've been here twice for relaxing weekends away from Rabat. Staying here ensured that my time was peaceful and stress-free.
Caroline is a terrific host. She is warm, friendly and inviting. She is wonderful to talk to and she has great ideas about how to spend your time, what to see, and where to eat. Her guesthouse is clean and comfortable. I've stayed in two different rooms and enjoyed both. The beds are comfortable, the linens are crisp, and they all have en-suite baths. But the absolute best part of the stay is the breakfasts. They are never the same, they are always delicious, and somehow they keep getting better. There is always fruit, an assortment of breads, protein, juice, and homemade jams. I know it sounds like a traditional Riad breakfast, but it's more. And weather permitting it's served up on the roof.
This is one of my favorite spots in Morocco. I will definitely be back.
