The Riad itself was well-decorated and had nice staff. However the beds and the general environment was damp and dingy. The wifi does not work except the first floor. On the last day before we left, the owner accused us of leaving a few dots of henna stains on some fabric and charged us 225 dirhams, which was in some... More

WOW! Suffice to say that you were the FIRST occupants, as you well knew, in the beautifully and freshly decorated and re-furnished, bedroom number 2! I was distressed beyond belief, as you noticed, and even a little tearful! By the way, do try staying in ANY establishment, and permanently stain and disrespect their belongings, and you may find the response... More

We had a wonderful stay at Riad Lunetoile in June 2015. We stayed for just 4 nights but wished we could have stayed longer. From the moment we arrived Sue and team made sure we had the perfect stay, we were collected from the bus station and upon arrival at the hotel given delicious cold mint tea while Sue took... More

My husband and I spent two nights in Apartment 5 and I cannot recommend it enough. The apartment gives you a whole floor to yourself including a living room, bedroom, kitchen, bathroom, and your own private terrace overlooking the main street below. The rooms are lovely and bright with plenty of windows overlooking the perfect blue Essaouira sky. The terrace... More

Beautiful and peaceful riad with an excellent location in the medina of Essaouira. We discover this place thanks to some surfer friends who recommend it to us. Our stay was better than expected. Susanne and the friendly staff make us feel like home. The best part is the breakfast in the sunny roof terrace! I will certainly come back :)

My husband and i spent 5 nights here with our 6month old baby. It was a perfect home away from home! Our room was spacious and clean, great for the baby with a nice wooden cot and a bath, not often provided. Across the hall we were also given use of a kitchen area to prepare food for the baby....

Great value and service. Beautiful room and lovely staff. Kabira and Susanne were very helpful and accommodating. The breakfast was very good also. There is a beautiful sun terrace on the roof to relax and read. We really enjoyed our stay and would certainly recommend Riad Lunetoile

I chose this riad after reading the great reviews of welcome and friendliness. There were a couple of reviews that weren't so great, that mentioned Sue not being there. She wasn't there when I visited either, and I think this made the difference between OK, and really good. In general the place is fine. I was met at the bus... More
