Staff friendly. Food was good. Excellent location for touring and sightseeing. Helpfull staff for sightseeing tips. Breakfast till 12.30
A lot of noise in the mornings very early.
A Surprise Birthday cake made especially for me, by their Chief Mina. Fantastic (how do I upload a picture(s) ???.
No faults at all - a Gantastic experience
Riad Malaika is a beautiful and charming space, and the photos online don't do it justice. It was amazing to come back to a fireplace burning in one of the lounges off of the courtyard on a windy afternoon Friendly staff went out of their way to orient me in the city. The restaurant they recommended was outstanding! The food they served at the Riad was also excellent and when you walked by the kitchen, it smelled amazing.
Attentive, quiet staff Wonderful meals Fast & reliable wifi Beautifully designed hotel with gracious Moroccan textiles everywhere Lovely staff that catered to our every wish
Not enough ventilation in room---perhaps they have a fan? We forgot to ask!
Very helpful staff they couldnt do enough for you. The meal we had there was one of the best of our whole trip.
There was a bit of noise from nearby property but that couldn't be helped.
Everything. The breakfasts were wonderful, and the meal we had there one evening was excellent. The staff were all helpful and friendly.
The only complaint was that 5 of us were seated at a low round table for breakfast, and one of us was very tall, so a little uncomfortable.
Everything was wonderful
the friendliness of the staff/warm welcome, the excellent room, great food, and outstanding location!
The people the location and the vibe
Room slightly small Hand held shower
Being met at bus station was great as the Riad wasn't so easy to find inside the medina. Comfortable and quiet room. Evening meal was fantastic - we enjoyed one of the most exquisite meals of our Moroccan trip. Pigeon pastille and seafood pastille were superb. The dessert presentation and taste was amazing. We had an early morning bus so were given breakfast at 5.15am and escorted back to bus station.
Good sized rooms and comfortable bed. Nice terrace to relax on.
The staff were very helpfull and the meals were excellent
We had to change rooms and ended up on a very small room
The room, the terrace, the staff, the breakfast the atmosphere, the friendliness, the style and the decor all were lovely.
The only downside, really the only thing was there was nowhere to hang wet towels, and because of the style of the bathroom everything got quite wet.
The staff was extremely nice and helpful. They took the time to explain the sights to see in Essaouria. Would definitely recommend the riad to others.
Very tasteful decoration, lovely personell and great location. Wifi fast and reliable, and try to have diner: amazing kitchen
The owner and staff are very friendly and welcoming, the food excellent, the room comfortable and beautifully decorated, and the location within the medina very practical. Our stay in the Riad couldn't have been better!
A beautiful riad, so pretty and family run. A treat!! Breakfast was lovely and all the staff very welcoming.
The nature of the riad is that noise travels a lot, so don't expect to have a lie in!! The shower was beautiful but functionality not amazing.
Loved the decor and furnishings, the staff were lovely and went out of their way to help, as of course did the hosts Silvie and Piermark. The food was good and the riad benefitted from additional French style and sophistication on top of Moroccan hospitality, traditional riad artisan fittings and design, and a quiet location close to the shops but out of the crowded routes. Essouaira is a fabulous town, more relaxed than Marrakech but still vibrant. We had the perfect stay.
Not enough time there
Beautiful property with lovely rooms, a charming roof terrace and delicious breakfasts. In the perfect location in the medina.
The staff were extremely helpful and the Riad is nicely done. Location is in the medina.
The shower was a little awkward to manage - but typically for a renovated Riad.
Wonderfully decorated. Great breakfasts
A real gem of a hotel. I liked the fact that breakfast is served all day. It is a very generous breakfast and very tasty. I Recommend to try their dinners- very tasty and very elegantly served!
The staff in the riad were totally polite and helpful. The road was very nicely decorated, however I have to admit that in the photos in the site it looks more luxurious than it actually is. Overall a great stay!!!!
The riad was beautiful and we had dinner cooked by Minah and it was amazing
The bedroom felt a little too damp but I think this must happen in most riads.
