I've been coming here for years and it continues to be my go-to place in the medina. There is no shortage of charming Riad's in Essaouira and the medina has clearly become swamped with foreign-renovated and operated Riads. Great breakfast, quality cuisine in restaurant, all needs can be provided by reception, so just an easy, trouble-free place to hang. No longer a young, swinging crowd and the Jimi Hendrix photos refer back to a very different Essaouira, but time marches on.

Ah! A Riad with some rooms that have outside windows! We found that very pleasant to be able to open up, although the twin room itself was rather bland compared to others with openings only to the landing and inner court yard. Staff were very friendly, breakfast buffet nice. We were surprised though that at this price we only had two small bars of very poor soap and had to ask for shampoo each time we needed some. The location in the Medina is nice. Everything within easy walking distance.

Last week, I stayed in a magical Riad in the Moroccan seaside city of Essaouira. Essaouira is a vibrant city based around its Medina. The sand stone streets contrasting with white washed houses and bright blue skies. Riad Al Madina, located within the Medina walls, was built in 1871 and has had numerous guises over the years. it was reputedly a favorite place to stay for the likes of Jimmy Hendrix in the 1960's. The Riad is centered around courtyard. The lofty pillars are adorned with bougainvillea. A real haven from the outside world. The rooms are comfortable (there are 27 rooms - 4 of which are suites) and furnished in classic Moroccan style. The Hotel restaurant is very good - breakfast offered a variety of pastries and cold meats & cheeses and good coffee (and tea of course!). One evening we had dinner in the restaurant - which was most enjoyable - and featured local seafood and Moroccan fare. Service was friendly and responsive. A great location and ideal for those travelers wanting to experience the charm of a traditional Riad.
