My husband and I stayed with Gareth for 4 nights and were really sad to leave. He managed to accommodate us for an extra night last minute, and was always on hand to help with restaurant recommendations, what to wear on a camel trek (!) and other helpful information. The food suggestions he gave us were all excellent, not too expensive and we had some of our best meals in Essaouira.
We loved the modern, spacious, and comfortable Riad. It is right in the centre of town, yet is so quiet you wouldn't know. The rooms are beautiful, bathrooms spacious, and beds large and comfortable! There is a lovely roof terrace with a jaccuzi to relax in, a cool lounge to shelter from the sun and the wind and an inner courtyard with water feature where we had breakfast every morning.
The staff were so friendly, we had an amazing hammam and massage (the best we had by far during our 2 week trip to Morocco), and were always on hand to help with anything you needed.
We are now planning our return trip.
