We had a good stay, the riad is really pretty with nice rooftop views, although a little on the pricier side.

A couple of minor things:
We weren't allowed to leave our backpacks at the riad while we went on a one-night trek, which was a little inconvenient and unexpected.
Also, the Moroccan lady who was looking after the riad did not speak English (which is not unusual), although she was fluent in French. So if you are non-French speaking, come armed with a phrasebook!

Thank you very much for your comments, which I will try to address: Very surprised that you found Lunetoile 'pricey'! You stayed for 32e, in a double-room, with shared bathroom (which was what you had booked), with fresh towels, fresh roses, hot water 24hours, heating, hot breakfast, welcome drink and home-made biscuits, and stunning sea-view terrace...not to mention the excellent service from our staff...Kabira and Latifa. Wow!

You 'weren't allowed to leave your backpacks' whilst you went for a one-night trek?.....You had apparantly, asked if you could leave them in the room! To which the reply was 'no, sorry, but you could leave them under the table in the hall-way'. This is where all the cases are left when guests book out, and return later the same day for their luggage. You chose NOT to accept this option....as you were surprised that we do not have a luggage room! No, sorry, we do not.

As for our darling Kabira not speaking English...no, again, she does not...She is Moroccan and speaks Arabic and French and enough 'breakfast' English etc to get by....BUT...as we all know...where there is a will, there is a way...and you will see other glowing reports about our service from Kabira and Latifa, from English-speaking clients, who, with a smile and a will, manage, to, quite easily, convey what they wish to say....And, I would also say, at this juncture, that you managed to communicate, it seems, quite successfully, regarding the luggage..as both she, and you, knew exactly what transpired, and what had been asked and told.

I have spoken to Kabira, of course, to find out what happened....as we are always distressed when we have clients who are less than 100% satisfied....and indeed, we are sorry that you were not part of this large group of satisfied clients...but, we do continue trying to give the best we can.....and thank you for your visit. Sue, Kabira and Latifa

Lunetoile is a beautifully restored traditional riad within the medina walls. There is attention to detail everywhere from the extremely comfortable rooms to the very pleasant roof terrace.
It is clear that the management really cares whether your stay is enjoyable and the service and information is second to none. All this and the room rates in January are unbeatable.

I would recommend Lunetoile to anyone seeking character, quality and good value. By far the best hotel I have stayed in in Morocco.

My goodness! What a compliment! "By far the best hotel I have stayed in, in Morocco"!
This is praise, indeed, and yes - we REALLY DO CARE!
Thank you so very much for the wonderful write-up, and, of course, for your visit. We look forward to your return, and I will pass on this praise to Kabira and Latifa, who will be thrilled.
Thanks, Sue

Sue has given a lot of thought and energy to creating this little oasis of peace and quiet. The special rooms are absolutely wonderful - but you do need to book. We had left it a little late, nonetheless our room was perfect for us.

Sue was extremely helpful with advice for lunch and dinner and a general introduction to the city. Her breakfast is evil - the croissants are delicious and irresistible!

We were met just outside the city gate (where we had parked the car) and led to the riad - a real help. Kabira and Latifa were most hospitable.

We could only spend one night in Essaouira, but this was the perfect place to stay. Thank you Sue.

Lovely little riad. We had a very relaxing week or so here in room 4, falling asleep to the sound of the sea was such a treat and the breakfasts were delicious! I miss those fresh croissants and yummy juice! The rooftop terrace is particularly nice, we enjoyed sitting in the little sunhouse (not sure if thats the word, but seems appropriate!) and reading on the comfy sofas - admiring the view of sea, soaring seagulls and higgledy piggledy Morrocan rooftops!

Essaouira is alot calmer than Marrakech, and without a car to explore the surrounding countryside you may find yourselves getting a little fidgety as we did! But Lunetoille was the perfect place for lazy days and Sue was extremely helpful in suggesting things to do.

Wil definately recommend to all our friends!

Thanks for the honeymoon visit, and should you ever decide to com back with a rented car, there are some beautiful places to go to, (which, I think, I may have suggested to you?) Morocco is the most wonderful country to travel around, but, distances are enormous, so, a little more time is required - plus a car! Or, if taking public transport - a lot more time!

Thanks again, for taking the time to write a comment...which is much appreciated by us all, at Lunetoile
