Firstly this is not a european hotel with a la carte menu and extensive bar open all night. Do not expect live music and dancing all night either.

It's 10min of drive from Essaouira, lost in the small village, with rough path leading to it. The surprise lies behind entrance, warm welcome, immense well maintained garden, with swimming pool in the middle, surrounded by couple of riads (small houses) with usually 4 rooms, kitchen, sitting - dining area. Riads can be rented as a whole but even by... More

This is a hidden gem, our Riad was extremely comfortable right by the pool. We are a family of 5 and we had plenty of space in our own villa. We ate in the restaurant twice and had food delivered to our riad twice, the food is outstanding. What puts this place above others is the attentive yet discreet service... More

We arrive Essaouira quite late at night and if the domaine did not provide any directions, there would be no way of finding this place because google map doesn't give you proper directions. The domaine signposts are quite poor and the road going into the domaine is absolutely horrible. All rocks, unpaved and probably really bad for the car! You... More
