After a welcome drink we were shown to our suite which was large and comfortable. The hotel is full of interest with artwork of all kinds. It has a sun roof with loungers and meals can be taken there if required. There is also a comfortable room in the hotel where meals can be served. In fact, in a five... More

Riad Watier is in an ideal location for exploring Essaouira. The staff are welcoming and offer a discreet efficient service which made our stay perfect. The Riad accommodation is wonderful, the rooms are all decorated to a very high standard with colourful Morroccan furnishings. By about 5pm Jean Gabriel's music floats around the Riad adding to the mystical feel. Jean-Gabriel... More

The room I was in was a duplex with a living room, two bedrooms and private toilet and shower rooms. There was a nice fire place in the living room which was great... More

The rida is in a good location in the heart of the medina. The rooms are nice size, but just simple and not luxurious, bed wasn't really comfortable. There was WiFi and a heater but no TV, no A/C. Owner was very friendly and helpful and willing to assist to ensure any of your needs are met. Breakfast served up... More

Spent a great couple of days here, excellent location right in the heart of town with plenty of restaurants cafes and souks to choose from and a short walk to the beach. Friendly staff, family owned feel to it. Converted school house with lots of character, and rooftop terraces for breakfast and sunbathing.

This eclectically decorated riad, centrally located in the Medina, has an amazing staff, superior massage facilities, a gorgeous roof terrace, warm dining room, and garden patio. They also offered one of the most memorable dinners in all of Morocco, culminating in a fish tagine... More
