This is a great little riad in an old but characterful building in the medina - quiet location but near to everything. Super sea view from the terrace where a lovely breakfast is served by the ever cheerful Abdul. Great value too. The room was cleaned everyday and towels changed. All the staff friendly. Very much in keeping with the... More

We ended up in this hostel in order to save money, wasn't a good idea. In Morocco you'd better save money on something else than hotels... Small, dark and wet room, no isolation, so we were awaken in the morning by other guests and noises from the street. No ventilation in the shower, so the whole room and our stuff... More

Authentic rooms but comfortable. Good bathrooms. Roof terrace with sea view (when you stand up). Loved the breakfast (pastries and fresh orange juice, excellent coffee.... More

Right now, relaxing at a posh riad in Marrakech, I'm actually missing L'etolie de Mogador. It is such a sweet place, very much in keeping with laid-back vibe of Essaouira. I had the room on the roof which meant I always had a view of the water. All guests can come up to the roof to chill out on the... More
