We received a very warm welcome on arrival, staff were very friendly and helpful and had excellent English. The riad has a wonderful patio and a roof terrace with an ocean view where breakfast is served. The room was spacious and comfortable, tastefully decorated with local artefacts. Everything was neat and clean. The location is very convinient - 3 minutes walk from the Supratours bus stop and 10 minutes from anywhere in the medina.
The dark and narrow alleyway to the riad seems daunting at first but this is normal in Essaouira and I did feel safe.
A very good Riad which was excellent vakue for money, good location if arriving by bus from Marrakech.
Really helpful staff Nice and new amenities Breakfast on the rooftop GREAT value
We thought the rooms very clean, the front desk was awesome, very helpful with places to see and eat. Eating breakfast on the terrace was very pleasant. Located in an area very accessible to other parts of the medina. Very positive and well run hotel; we would stay here again.
Big bed, big room, totally accommodating staff, very clean.
Staff very friendly and helpfull. Breakfest served on the terasse was very tasty. We spend there only 1 night and everything was perfect
Located in the medina, very close to Supratours bus station, is a lovely and very relaxing place to stay. Staff is very friendly and helpful in pointing out the most interesting places basing on the time you'll spend in the city. Value is excellent.
Terrasse with sea and old town views Charming rooms Very good advices from the staff; they were extremely friendly
Balcony room on top floor with view to ocean. Breakfast was fantastic and the view from the terrace was excellent Friendly staff. Free washing,
Don't worry about the lane way to the entrance it is safe and well lit at night.
Love riad and great people. The staffs are all very friendly and provides useful information. The Riad is really nice and we live on the top floor which has great view to the city and the sea. The breakfast is nicely prepared in a beautiful balcony. All 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.
