Unfortunately the Wi-Fi was down when we were there. Only bad mark in an otherwise perfect score.
Everything will dazzle you - the staff are exceptional.

Everything – especially the fantastically friendly staff, the beautiful dsign, the clean house, the view from the roof terrace ... I'll come back, inchallah!

Hafida and her team were so helpful, giving lots of great recommendations and helping us book a camel tour nf taxi transfer back to Marrakech. The wind really picked up one day and so she gave our group a hot bowl of local soup before we headed out! Hot water bottles were also provided at night. Great service!!

Room too small and location compromised by the rubbish outside the property and in surrounding derelict properties
Staff superb. Roof terrace and breakfast

It's a bit far from the main old town door.... you have to walk a bit to get there...
The view to ocean is amazing!!!... Staff and facilities as well!!!
November 23, 2014
The staff was very friendly and helpful. From the moment we walked in the door the staff took care of us until the 3rd day when Hafida got up early and served us an excellent breakfast at 6am so we could get to our 7am bus. Could not say enough kind words for the complete staff and great location and place.

Nothing - perfect place!
Absolutely beautiful riad with a stunning location. Staff were so helpful and lovely. The place was decorated beautifully and spotlessly clean. There was always someone around to help. The views from the terrace are sensational and it was the best breakfast we had in Morocco.

the room was great as was the bathroom. Breakfast was amazing and the location is perfect.

We were greeted so warmly and treated so well. The room was beautiful as was the rest of the Riad. Hafida invited us to have couscous at the Riad for dinner and we were not disappointed! It was the best we had during our stay. Also the rest of the staff were very helpful and kind. The breakfast on the terrace was another highlight. I really can't say enough good things about this place.

The bathroom didn't smell good in the morning when we woke up. Must have been a an issue with the evacuation tubes.
Very friendly staff, very clean room and quite big. very quiet, and a very nice roof with the view on the ocean and the city.

The staff is amazing, they make your stay at the Riad excellent. My daughter was asking for Fatima the whole day after our holidays.
November 4, 2014
Great host, friendly, helpful... Perfect location in the center of the Medina. I would highly recommend this Riad

some may find the street a bit dark and rather litter strewn but we always felt very safe and it was easy to find.
The staff were friendly, warm and relaxed. We were only going to stay 2 nights but my mum liked it so much we stayed 4. Great breakfasts, lovely jams, fruit and home made yoghurt as well as the usual pancakes etc. Loved the bed- very comfortable- nice and firm.

Super friendly and helpful staff. Hafida makes you feel really at home and she's a great cook so make sure to book a dinner at the riad one night. Close to the sea with a nice view of the waves crashing against the rocks.
October 15, 2014
The price on booking.com was not what we paid as we had to pay the rate of the hotel (55euros).
Friendly, helpful staff. Great position and view from the terrace. INCREDIBLE breakfast. Stunning rooms and riad inside.
October 6, 2014
They gather garbage in front of this riad, smell can be rather oppressive. This is not criticism, just an information. And at the end of the day, this is how it goes in Essaouira. But dont be put off by this, they will make it up for you in Fontaine Blue
It was just great! And Hafida makes you feel 'at home'
October 4, 2014
Wish we had stayed longer the setting and service was fantastic , we will return !!!!

Losing the fantastic sea view from the terrace.
Lovely riad with tastefully decorated rooms. The riad is relatively easy to find. Staff are always helpful and friendly.

September 20, 2014
All the staff was very warm and friendly. Great care was taken of us during stay. Rooms were very clean; Riad was renovated beautifully and stylish. From the rooftop there was a beautiful view at sea. Great place to go!
