My friend and I had a wonderful stay in Essaouira! Sue and Latifa were wonderful and helpful. Breakfast was delicious and the view from the rooftop terrace was beautiful and we could see the ocean! It was very easy to arrange transport to and from Marrakech. The walk to the beach was very doable. We absolutely loved our experience and the Riad—we are dying to come back! 🎉🎉

We have lived in Riad Lunetoile from December 23 to December 27 - and it has been absolutely perfect! Riad Lunetoile is without a doubt among the top 5 places I have visited. Sue, Latifa and Kabira tales you by the hand as a guest, while you can sit back as if you were at home! Everything is well designed and clean and neat - with attention to the small details: pleasant music in the wallway, delicious and filing breakfast, a thorough review of a map of the city. All in all, you are quickly well dressed to get the very best experience of Essouira. A more personal story is - that we left it up to Sue to plan our daughter's birthday. And she arranged it PERFECTLY! Best cake and a truly special adventure - such a beautiful day for our daughter. Thank you to all of you - Sue, Latifa and Kabira❤️❤️❤️

We stayed for 3 overnights at Ryad Lunetoile. We were impressed by the attention to all small details, which in the end can make the difference. Since we went there at the end of November and it was quite cold, the staff was careful to come into our room in the evening to shut the blinders. They provided electrical mattress, heater and even a hot bottle water. Good location in the middle of Medina, near market and harbour, nice staff, good breakfast....we shall definitely use this place again!

I loved our stay here. amazing wouldn’t! Breakfasts fit for kings and queens, comfy beds, lovely staff, views to dream by... and moments away from all the magic of the Médina, the sea, the shopping, the harbour.

We've been in Morocco for two weeks and been staying in places a little bit more budget than Riad Lunetoile, but as it was my partner's birthday whilst we were in Essaouria, decided to splash out a little bit more than we normally would, and we're really happy choosing to stay here. We chose room 4 as we wanted some space to spread out and it provided plenty of room for us to do that, the room was nice and quiet and perfect to relax in. Plus the en suite bathroom had a door on it which doesn't seem to be a common theme in Morocco, so that certainly gets a thumbs up from us, also a nice little dressing table area with a mirror. It's also the only place we'd stayed with a TV (not that we watched it, but if that's the kind of thing you're interested in, it's good to know). Sue contacted me plenty of time in advance to ask what time we'd arrive, and I wasn't yet sure, so I was asked just to let them know when I had an arrival time, I let her know two days before, and Latifah came to meet us at the bus stop. Latifah was warm and welcoming showed us to the Riad and settled us in with tea and an introduction to the local area, and showed us round the Riad (it was empty at the time, and the entire place looked lovely), the other ladies working in the Riad were warm and smiley too (I'm sorry, I'm not sure of their names). Breakfasts were exactly what we needed, and some of the most delicious croissants we'd had. You pick up your breakfast at the kitchen, then you can eat it in your room or on the roof terrace overlooking the sea crashing into the rocks just off the side of the old town. On my partner's birthday they put rose petals on our breakfast tray and Latifah had some lovely birthday blessings for my partner. If we're ever back in Essaouira we'll look forward to staying here again.
