We stayed here for 3 nights in early-November - a great little town and a superb riad! It is literally right up against the Atlantic - you can hear the waves crashing against the walls all day and night... Furthermore, breakfast on the 4th floor open terrace is a treat - the ocean waves can be watched all day. Highly recommended...

We recently spent 2 glorious days here and wish it were longer. After walking the usual twisting narrow-lane route, you will enter total elegance. This is not just a riad but a magnificent 'hotel' with the traditional central fountain and welcome tea service. The roof terrace has a view over the ocean which cannot be beat. Our ocean-view room had windows that opened to the sea. The sound of the crashing waves that lolled us to sleep was a joy. Both dinner and breakfast in the terrace/view restaurant were equal to the best restaurants in NY. The food and views were remarkable. If you go to Essaouria, stay nowhere else.

We have been staying at the Mimouna since 2010 and have come to know many of the Staff and the Manager. We always request room 310 because this room has 4 windows......2 directly facing the Ocean and a further 2 on the side overlooking the city walls and the crashing waves. The location is simply perfect....the sound of the sea, the winds, and the spectacular panoramic views. This year we had a delightful lunch at the Riad - a simple salad to start, followed by Fish Pastilla containing Shrimps, Calamari and White Fish. We followed this with Ice Cream and Coffee. And the views from the Restaurant are absolutely amazing. The Riad also has a lovely rooftop Terrace with sun loungers, chairs and comfortable settees, ideal for those who like to just sit, read and soak up the sun. And the breakfasts - breads, croissants, cake, boiled egg, yoghurt, orange juice, coffee and complimentary bottles of water to take away if you wish. Wifi is available downstairs in the spacious and relaxing Foyer area.

Like others who have stayed at the Riad Mimouna we immediately fell in love with its location right on the rocks at the edge of the ocean. We had a superb corner room with plenty of space, a large bathroom and windows that opened on to the sea. Staff are friendly, breakfasts are superb. The only minor drawback, it is a long way from the parking area and my husband got lost several times! A great way to finish our Moroccan vacation.

Room Tip: Choose a corner room if your budget will allow ($180)

This exquisite hotel is a jewel on the Moroccan Coast. Right at the edge of the medina there is an amazing oasis called the riad Mamouna. After a long walk through the medina with our luggage in a cart, we arrived at this beautiful place. Our room was on the third floor and the Atlantic Ocean was literally washing against the walls of the hotel. The noise was amazing... The view even better. Words cannot describe view, we were blown away. Our room was clean, bright and very comfortable. Even the view from the bathroom was amazing. We ate at the hotel that night and we were a little disappointed. It must surely have the best view in the whole town and it is a shame that it is not decorated more in the Moroccan style with carpets, rugs and cushions to make it more inviting. The windows need replacing as some of them are to scary to open due to them looking like they are going to fall out. The terrace area again, beautiful with the best views in essoauira. It is a shame that it doesn't have beautiful umbrellas and lovely cushions and carpets around to laze away the afternoons. Cocktails on the terrace would be the perfect way to finish every day in this fabulous place.

I can highly recommend staying here and room 310 or 309 were beautiful. I hope to one day once again visit this beautiful riad.

Beautiful view and room in this Riad perched on the wall of the old city, the waves lapping the rocks directly below. Large, very comfortable room with spacious bathroom also, this was a treat!! Rooftop breakfast restaurant, friendly and accommodating staff.
Highly recommended.

Room Tip: Ask for a suite or at least a room on the ocean side

in the pretty town of Essaouira. This Riad is located in a quiet spot of this busy and noisy town full of merchants, restaurants and tourists! Our room had a gorgeous water view! rooms are smaller but nicely decorated the moroccan style.Although we did not have the chance to use it the fireplace is a nice addition for colder, windy nights.Staff was very helpful and friendly.The lobby decor will get your attention for sure and the roof top restaurant will give you a chance to take in the beautiful view of a good part of this exotic place from above.It is a safe, clean place that I would recommend if you happen to visit.
