The Riad Sidi Magdoul in Essaouira is no luxury hotel, so it depends what you want. If you want a comfortable bed, a decent en-suite, a clean, functional room, free wi-fi, a very nice breakfast, helpful (and really nice) staff, and if value for money is your top priority, then stay here. If you want a hairdryer, heating/a.c., paper hankies, fluffy towels, subtle lighting, little bottles of shampoo, views, then pay more. Our room wasn’t huge, but for two nights it was fine. You have to pay cash, and extra drinks cost extra.
I loved this place. It was really easy to find as well (get a decent map or take a photo of the one at the wall gate.) It was about a 10 minute walk from the Supratours bus station, and was right in the heart of the town. There was a nice rooftop terrace too. The rooms up here looked wonderful.
We wanted to hire bikes, and the guy on the desk was really helpful.
Go to Essaouira – it’s calm, relaxed, beautiful. You won’t be disappointed if you stay here, and in this wonderful Riad.
