We stayed only one night due to the street noise which went on late into the night. People tend to congregate just near during the night which due to the hotel's great location near a great little square. The staff was helpful and the woman spoke great english. If you stay there try to get a room away from the... More

We enjoyed our meal at Dar Mounia restaurant and decided to return there for a second visit. It's in a good location in the Medina. The two ladies who run it are very friendly. We had an authentic Moroccan meal in a lovely old dining room with ornaments and Oriental wall hangings. Again, an inexpensive meal out in Essaouira!

This is such a perfect location in the medina--a block away from the ramparts, the square, the main shopping street, and close to the beach! Some great restaurants around, some good shops, and some GREAT street dogs and cats! (See pics ;) The room we were in was comfortable—the bed and pillow were fine, the wifi was good, the shower...

Rooms were clean and tidy bed was rock hard and had a decent roof terrace. Its location is perfect though. Breakfast was crap so only had it once. Best thing about the place was the staff.

I don't know about other riads in Essaouira but this one we have chosen was absolutely wonderful. It has a great position in relation with the parking, restaurants and everything you want to see in Essaouira, the staff and service was without a fault, clean room, well prepared for our arrival.

After being brought here by a guide straight off the bus, we were sceptical. But it turned out to be a lovely hotel in the heart of the medina, with a great cafe and restaurant below. Our room, although not the best location (adjoining the lounge area and 1 floor above the bustle of the street below) was nicely decorated... More

Situated in the medina, Dar Mounia was one of the highlights of our holiday. I can't comment on the accommodation but the food is amazing! The pastilla I had for lunch was easily one of the best meals I've ever eaten. My husband rated the coffee highly also and he's particular about his coffee!
