This riad really is a "safe haven" in a peaceful part of the medina. The roof terrace offers fantastic views during breakfast and if you just fancy chilling out and catching some rays on the sun loungers. Staff are so attentive and more than happy to help with any enquiries. Jerome and Carol are amazing people and full of knowledge.... More

We (2 people) stayed here for two nights. The host (Carol) was just awesome! She always was in close touch with us via email before our arrival wanting to know when we would arrive so they could prepare for our arrival. Upon arrival we were greeted by the lovely housekeeper (I believe she speaks primarily French) and we were shown... More

We stayed ten days here in January in the highest riad in essaouira in the heart of the medina the views from the terrace give 360 degree sea views and are worth it for the view alone. Breakfast was spectacular different each day with a breath taking view of waves crashing on rocks. At night we took a bottle of... More

The French lady host (I believe she is called Karol) was very very helpful. She gave us a bigger room when we only paid for a standard double room as with the baby cot, the standard room would have been would have been tight for space. The right is in heart of medina so ideal for shopping. The breakfast was... More

We chose this riad as it was reasonably priced and was located on the main street of the old medina , close to the parking and the port . The rooms were a bit small and very minimalistic in their decor . No complains , only issue we faced was communicating with the owner who stays in top floor ,... More

Thoroughly enjoyed my stay here. I went with a friend for a two night break from Marrakech. Liked it so much stayed an extra night. Very characterful, clean and comfortable. Carol was a great hostess. Breakfasts were excellent with just right amount of variety. Well situated and great view from roof terrace. Would definitely recommend.

We stayed just 2 nights at the Ryad Lyon-Mogador In the medina = city center, which you reach on foot and have a "porter" bring your bags to the Ryad. What a delightful welcome with tea on the rooftop, explanations of where to go, eat and drink -- and bring your own wine! Our room was a nice size and... More

We spent one night in this modern riad located in the heart of the medina, just off one of the main shopping streets. We were welcomed with mint tea and Moroccan pastries and offered a selection of rooms to pick from. We were happy with the first we saw - clean and well decorated in a modern Moroccan style. The...

I booked this Riad on the last moment, wanting bad to escape Marrakech, so I had no expectations. It was incredible. Really incredible. Why? 1. The room was nice and cozy. Clean while everything was put in order each morning. 2. The breakfast: uhh la la! GREAT! They have the ordinary Marroccan pancakes, the juice, tea and coffee but each... More
