Having looked at lots of riads online in Essaouira to ensure we had a good stay over the Christmas holidays, we were delighted with this gem of a Riad! Riad Lunetoile has a beautiful interior and the staff were wonderful. We stayed in a double room with ensuite (Room 3 I think) which had it's own lounge area, perfect for chilling out inbetween the busy streets and beach trips. The owner, Sue, gave us a great review of local restaurants and bars so we had lots of delicious dinners (tummy bug free!) in the town. Breakfast on the terrace is a must - croissants and home-made yoghourt each morning with coffee and fresh orange juice. The view of the sea and the town is fantastic plus it's a great place to sunbathe.The other staff, particularly Kabira, are friendly and welcoming and helped us arrange transport and even a sunset camel ride on Christmas day. I was worried about how cold it would be at night in December but they provide electric heaters and hot water bottles (which we didn't need in the end) but was a huge comfort after a very cold stay in a damp riad in Marrakech unfortunately. I would highly recommend Riad Lunetoile and look forward to returning one day!
