This place was perfect for us and the children. Nothing was too much bother for Mohammed and Zara. Clean and tidy and the pets were great for the kids.
Pool kept then entertained all day and food in the evening was fantastic. The beach is wonderful and if you are a surfer you will be in heaven.

A great holiday made all the better by Ribali

Dear Gordon and family. Many thanks for the lovely comments - it was a pleasure to welcome you to Rebali. I am glad you liked our animals although they are not really pets, having all found their own way to Rebali - we think of them as family... Indeed, the tortoises and the the chameleons seems to enjoy the gardens as much as the paying guests, and the cats do a great job keeping rodents at bay. However camels and horses are only by invitation only, although they are very keen on our grass. Goats and donkey definitely not allowed, but they are always trying their luck. The pleasures of rural Morocco...

We have just returned from a 7 night stay at Rebali Riads. The Riad is perfect in every way, decoration, layout, quality of linen, towels and robes and one of the most beautiful things are the smells of the soap and oils that are provided throughout the Riad. The service was excellent and the food fantastic, every night apart from one we ate in, they lit us a lovely fire and Chef would cook anything within reason that you wanted, always tasty and presented very well. The breakfast was different everyday which is very unusual and always delicious. Sidi Kaouki is a little oasis in Morocco away from all the noise and crowds which suited us perfectly. We enjoyed watching the local people farming and working, we took some amazing pictures including the lovely sunsets from the roof terrace. The beach is beautiful, great for walks, horse riding and quad biking. The little village has a friendly atmosphere, untouched by tourism, just perfect!

Just back from 8 nights at Rebali Riads with our two kids aged 10 and 12. We had a gorgeous time - peaceful and relaxing.
Our thanks must go to Mohammed and the team who were all exemplary - friendly and attentive, cheerful and helpful. A special thank you for our son's fabulous birthday cake and the celebration waiting for him when we got back from the beach.
Also, fabulous food! Breakfasts that we looked forward to every morning and evening meals that were fresh and delicious.

I have stayed at all quality levels of hotels throughout the world & i can trully say that my 3 days at the rebali Riad tops the lot.When spending my own money i look not only at the quality but the value for money.Rebali has got it in perfect balance.In many ways their model is perfect.It is not a B&B or self catering or serviced room or a holiday cottage but a fusion blend of all four depending on how you want to use it.We used it as a hotel stay & got the 5star treatment that suited us just fine.The food service & meals were the best of the holiday.Mohamed visited us each morning & we could discuss all our needs & wishes with him.He then enacted them with an unexpected precision (not expected in this region).Everything happened perfectly & on time.In all matters our requests were dealt with in a delightfully relaxed & in an easy obliging manner. There was no "edge" in anything we requested & at all times felt at ease we were not being coerced into anything we didn't want to do.
The Riad was clean,comfortable,spacious,private,quiet.there were no great hikes to get anywhere about the place or the Beach.Our own pool !! was heated & right on the doorstep.
The roof terrace was private for a loving couple to star gaze :-))
A brilliant place. You will not do better anywhere be it a couple with/without children or a bigger party group. I love d the place.

Room Tip: all rooms look good to me

The bottom line is that the service here is excellent. Great spot as well, very relaxing and the beach is just a few minutes away. Food is great, both breakfast and dinner if you choose to have it in the riad.

We stayed for five nights at the Rebali Riads at the end of February 2013 and loved it. We were there for a Yoga retreat but combined it with a trip to Essaouira, a cooking lesson, tennis, swimming, sunbathing and even horse riding along the deserted beach - paradise.
Sidi Kaouki is a good 20 minutes from Essaouira by taxi if you feel the need for the 'big city' but we were happy to sample the local restaurants or eat at the Rebali.
The quality of the Riads is superb, real attention to detail and a genuine desire to make your stay as comfortable as possible.
Would happily go back anytime.
