Score from 145 reviews Wonderful
Friendly and helpful staff. The hotel terrace offer fantastic panoramic view of the beachfront. Good value for money
Great location, clean and cozy room, friendly staff and very good breakfast!!
Simply but perfectly decorated rooms. We paid for a private bathroom and had a lovely balcony too. Breakfasts were also a bonus.
Much easier to find than we'd anticipated - just follow the instructions they send you. The entrance way is quite dark but very well lit at night - nothing to worry about.
the building and city
The Riad is great: nice and clean with some fantastic staff: helpful, funny, open, caring. The house itself is also very worth visiting (Although breakfast could be a bit more varied. The place is clean and very well kept. You will like it! Essaouira particularly and Marocco in general is an awesome and wonderful place: the sea, the medina, the souk, the food, the People, the streets and the atmosphere, the sunset, the Palm trees, the sand at the beach, nature and the buildings... You can make some wonderful vacation for a good price there. I do recomend the month of Ramadan: less tourists, lower Prices as result. Take a walk at the beach early in the morning, enjoy the joy and the fun in the evening. Try the different Foods: you will dive into a wonderful experience. Beach: very windy! Make sure you have appropriate clothing with you. If you don't want the wind: go to Agadir. The water is warmer and less windy. Food cleanliness: ask in the Riad what they recommend: I did so and didn't regret it at all!
The alleyway to the Riad is a challange in terms of smell and a gloomyness. So can be the whole town, especially in the morning. The trash is decomposing in the streets, cats are everywhere. BUT: Once you get into the building, everything changes and a peaceful, quite and clean place welcomes you. So Keep Walking but brace yourself. CAUTION-CAUTION-CAUTION: Regarding the souk/vendors, make sure you know what you are doing. These folks are nice but very pushing at best and really ugly and aggressive at times. They can be gentle and caring in one moment and become brash and obnoxious in the twinkling of an eye. And they know all the TRICKS to MAKE YOU buy their stuff. A good tip: the REAL price is between 30-50% of the Initial price (i.e. Initial price 100 Dirhams, real price 30-50 Dirhams). Make sure, you push it towards 30%. Then push more and leave without buying. They come after you and will agree with the price. Make sure you rule the situation and they don't own you. Make sure you don't fall for "I have one in the shop with better quality", it's the same stuff, just more expensive. From personal exerience: a pair of sandals cost 70-80 Dirhams, scarf 50-60 Dirhams, top 70-90 Dirhams, leather backpack small: 200-250 Dirhams. Don't Forget: it's you who has the money and they are the ones who want it! You are the Client and they have to serve you! If you go up to the vendor, not knowing what you want and what to do: you are going to be fooled. Beware: Lying and d deception is a proper means of business over there. Don't display enthusiasm or joy, they will use it against you. Be said about the high price, be depressed. Tell them you would never pay that, you don't really need it (which is absolutely true of most of the stuff you can get there). Do bargain EVERYWHERE!! Food, camel ride, gifts, clothing, etc. Their whole world is built on bargaining, so don't give in too soon.
Great location with sea view in the medina.absolutely perfect service and amazing free of charge mint tea:) strongly recomended
This was a lovely Riad, very clean and comfortable with a beautiful garden. The staff were very hospitable and friendly, and the breakfast was excellent and served on the roof terrace. I would highly recommend staying here.
Bed was comfortable, breakfast was great. Good wifi. Pretty courtyard.
Everything was good.
The staff was very helpful giving us great ideas for places to eat, directions as to how to get there, etc. Our rooms were very attractive, comfortable and had great views.
I can't think of anything we didn't like.
The service was amazing and the staff were so helpful and went out of their way to make sure we didn't need anything and they made us feel at home. Latifa (the hostess) even went out to the pharmacy to get me sunburn lotion. I will definitely be recommending this Riad to family and friends. Book without any worries as you won't be disappointed.
We had the room right at the top with the balcony overlooking Essaouira, what a great view. Our room was very tastefully decorated and comfortable. The breakfasts on the terrace had a sensational view and the egg was a bonus on top off a great breakfast. The staff were very friendly and helpful. We loved windy Essaouira.
Location, excellent breakfast, terrace off our bedroom, lovely friendly and helpful staff.
I liked the friendly and welcoming staff. The view from the terrace where breakfast was served was really nice. An excellent location and peaceful surroundings. Highly recommended
Lovely stay really enjoyed it. Excellent staff very friendly & helpful. Would highly recommend.
Everything, especially THE breakfast.
Great location and excellent staff, would recommend it to a friend without a doubt.
Our stay was a pleasure and the staff where wonderfully friendly and helpful. Watching the sun set from our balcony was lovely. I would highly recommend it.
A beautiful riad, absolutely perfect for us. Lovely gardens and terraces, great view of the sea and medina rooftops. Staff could not have been more lovely, really friendly and helpful, all their suggestions for places to eat and drink were spot on.
helpful friendly staff,nice and quiet with views over the ocean while eating breakfast.
The staff was very friendly and made us feel very welcome and at home. The view from the rooftop terrace was wonderful, and having breakfast up there every morning was a delight. We received a very nice email before our arrival giving us more details about our stay and excellent directions to find the riad.
The riad is at the end of a not-so-nice looking alleyway, but it's safe and well lit at night. The bathroom wasn't ideal as the floor would often get wet after a shower and it was a little bit small, but all in all if functioned just fine.
Couldn't ask for a more romantic setting for our honeymoon. Riad's a lovely old cottage within the medina, tastefully refurbished with a pretty little garden. Staff was friendly and helpful especially Younes & Mehdi. They were quick to attend to our needs yet gave us our much needed privacy. On our 1st day, we were even picked up from the bus station at no cost, given a map and briefed on the main highlights of the area. Breakfast was sumptuous & plenty to choose from. Our dunette room was simply the best, cozy light airy complete with a private terrace of our own, from which we had an amazing view of the sea. I'd recommend this riad to anyone.
Nothing major. Just that they was no shower screen, so water kept splashing out & making the whole toilet wet. There was no drain for the water to run out to, except the one in the shower. But not a big problem, since we had room service every morning.
Great Riad with a nice staff and very comfortable rooms!! A little bit hard to find, but the staff sends you an email upfront to get there. From the roof terrace you have a view on the beach. Breakfast is nice and the atmosphere is really relaxed!!
Walking distance to bus station and really friendly staff! They reserved a restaurant for us for New Years and on the day we checked in they spent a decent amount of time going over the map and telling us what we should do/where we should go. Lovely breakfast on the roof, one of our best in Morocco.
This place is a little gem, right in the heart of the medina in an ideal location. Staff were very helpful and pleasant. We stayed in the room right on the top floor with the roof terrace. It is the smallest room in the riad but still plenty of space. The bathroom is small but adequate with a fantastic powerful shower with plenty of hot water. Our room was immaculate and cleaned every day, with fresh towels which were quite large for a hotel room. Breakfast is fresh every day, eggs, pancakes, fresh bread and preserves, coffee and freshly squeezed orange juice. I can highly recommend this accommodation. Do not be put off by the alley leading up to the front door, its dark, dingy and often smelly but once you open the door into the riad its a different world.
There was nothing to dislike
A lovely quiet place, very clean with excellent staff.
