We were met at the bus station - thank goodness, would never have found it otherwise. Through the usual anonymous door, the riad has a fine courtyard and is airy and spacious. Our room was large and very comfortable with a good shower. Breakfast was good. Staff were very friendly and helpful.

We stayed at Watier for a full week and were very happy with our choice (which we made based on trip advisor reviews). Great central location yet very quiet. The rooms (we stayed in 2 different ones) were very big - perfect for a young family with a toddler! - and tastefully decorated. Books everywhere and interesting artwork on every wall as well as two very cute tortoises. Jean-Gabrielle and his staff - especially Hyatt who was a natural with our little girl - were simply brilliant. There to help and to go beyond the call of duty if needed, but also giving you space and privacy if preferred. Breakfasts on the rooftop were lovely. In fact the only reason I'm not giving Watier 5 stars were the dinners - we chose to eat in quite often and whilst the portions were very generous, the meals weren't always to our liking (but we did get to have wine which was a nice plus!). Highly recommended nonetheless.

If you look for clean spacious rooms beautifully decorated, sunny rooftop terraces, friendly people and above all a felling as if you are just at home where every single detail is thought over, that's the place! We even had our own fireplace (working!) and aroma-lamps filled with oils :) The super hospitable and charming French owner - Jean Gabriel really cares for his guests creating a relaxing welcoming atmosphere. Me and my friends enjoyed immensely our 4-night stay. Definitely the best Riad among those we visited (Fes, Marrakech, Essaouira). Would love to come back again and will recommend it to my friends traveling to Morocco.

We stayed 5 nights . Lovely rooms, great artwork everywhere and relaxed atmosphere - rooftop dinning and sunbathing terraces sunny and sheltered even when windy!The photos just don't do the place justice. Clean spacious bedrooms, quality linen and endless hot water. Exceptional staff, friendly and helpful in so many ways - lighting fires in bedrooms , lending us bikes restaurant and shopping recommendations and a particular highlight for us was time with the cheerful cook preparing our delicious dinner - Moroccan chicken with fruits - a house speciality!
Highly recommended

(+) Friendly and helpful staff
(+) Large Rooms
(+) Comfy Beds
(+) Nice roof top
(+) Loved all the books around

(-) Internet connection--There was very limited area where you can find a good signal. It was Christmas and I wanted to Skype with family and friends back in the US, not very convenient when I had to sit on the cold hard stairs to get a good signal.
(-) Kind of a tacky feeling to the rooms
(-) Never met the owner, I suppose he was away for vacation but that's part of the fun of staying at a Riad. We felt like we were staying in a hotel instead
(-) Breakfast, was just OK with no real variation. It was cold on the rooftop and lots of bees! (of course not the fault of the Hotels)
(-) Kind of pricey compared with other options
