This is a guest house almost in the middle of nowhere, down an unpaved and rutted road, that is not lit, and is horribly rubbish strewn. Certainly not to be recommended for nervous single travellers or anyone without transport. But an interesting location which provides a window on the realities of Morroccan rural life.
Staff Hadija & Said were great - welcoming and hospitable. Inside the walls of the Riad, the small, well kept garden and plunge pool are beautiful, and a berber tent provides shade [and, if you choose, somewhere to eat meals that can be provided to advance order.] It is well off the beaten track - make sure you take any snacks and drinks you might want with you. A tiny local shop does sell coke and choc bars near the water tap, but was not clear when it was / wasnt open. Km8 restaurant on the main road was very good [but not cheap.]
To Essouira by taxi is 150 MAD each way - which can add up for longer stays. There is no local bank or cash machine so if, like us, you are told the Riads card reader is broken and asked to pay in cash, you may need to make a trip to town and back to enable you to pay your bill.
