This was our first stop in Morocco and we loved the city. I emailed and messaged Sue it seems like a dozen times before we got there and it felt like I was visiting a friend instead of a guest house. She had us message her out expected arrival and had someone waiting for us at the front gate to...

Great stay -- Sue and her coworkers are all great and helped us organize a fantastic stay in Essaouira. Our room was brilliantly decorated, breakfast was yummy and location in general was right in the heart of Essaouira, yet tranquil and reserved. Definitely a come-back!

Stayed there for 2 nights and it was really good. The location is calm and central - could not wish for better; the rooms are rather spacious; the terrace is very cozy and breakfast is big. The staff is nice. Just the riad is slightly damp (no mold though), but i guess this is this the problem with all houses...

Thanks very much Jana. No, we have no mould, in fact, I always believed that our Riad was remarkably dry! But, evidently, in comparison to the Riads in Hot, Dry, Marrakech, perhaps, our houses here, do seem damp? We do,our best to keep it beautifully dry and aerated, and, thankfully, you loved it! Manynthanks for your comment.

Sue has created a gorgeous place to stay. Beautifully decorated, comfortable in a great central location within the old city. Breakfast on the rooftop patio, lovely welcomes from Sue and her staff, and lots of help to make sure you have a great experience in Essaouira. I would recommend Riad Lunetoile with no reservations!

We spent two nights in Lunetoile Riad last september ; we had a wonderful experience. The atmosphere is simple and elegant, yet very comfy and welcoming. The room we rent was spacious and romantic. You have the experience of the high standard hotel with the charm of a traditional moroccan hotel. Highly recommended !

I absolutely loved my too-short time spent at Riad Lunetoile! Sue is a magnificent hostess, and clearly a community cornerstone in Essaouira. My room was perfectly comfortable with a real Moroccan riad flair. I would highly recommend this riad to anyone looking for quaint, comfortable, and affordable accommodation in Essaouira!

Sue is a very bubbly and enthusiastic host and we felt very welcome.

Sue was a outstanding host and the stuff was verry friendly. Great Riad with a nice area around an great tips from Sue. She prepared an excellent map with places to visit. She arranged a traditional haman for us as well. But the water pressure in the appartment is verry low.
