Cozy facilities, friendly staff, good breakfast, great location
The room was lovely - clean, comfortable, quiet. The staff were always so friendly and keen to help. Breakfast was yummy and all the places they recommended for lunch and dinner were wonderful too. We had a wonderful stay and would definitely come again.
Attentive staff, large comfortable rooms, great art work throughout. It was a very relaxing 4 days, shopping in the markets that aren't as crazy as the souks in Marrakech, riding horses and camels on the beach, and my 17 year old son finding pickup games of soccer on the beach.
Truly a slice of heaven!
One of very few riads in town still run by the owner in situ. Jean Gabriel lives above the shop and is always around to give advice, help, and a warm welcome. Staff are thoughtful and cheery, breakfasts on the roof terrace were a daily treat. Restaurant recommendations were always good. Our room was fabulous. We had a great time!
We only had five nights.
wonderful art collection throughout, pleasant staff and owner, nice breakfast on the roof terrace
This riad is quite place and in a good locaton. The rooms are nice and clean. A friendly staff and a charming french owner is waiting for you.
Great location and they were great hosts
Charming people, beautiful large room, artistically decorated, great breakfast, just perfect, and in a fantastic location in the Medina close to the ramparts.
Location, excellent staff, dinner, decoration.
breakfast in the terasse not appropriate. May be too expensive for the level of the room for 3 persons . absence of a pool.
Jean the owner was so generous with his time and shared his opinions and insights into a world we were seeing for the first time. we felt we had made a new friend.
The riad is very nice and clean and the owners are very inviting and helpful. When they saw that we travelled with our 3 year old daughter, they immediately upgraded our room to make sure we were all comfortable. We would definitely stay there again.
The facility was convenient to the Medina activities. The owner and staff were excellent and helpful for any activity or request. The meal we had one evening was truly outstanding.
Wonderful staff, we felt like at home, we could not imagine a better place in Essaouira! Really, really nice!!!
Nothing was too much trouble,immensely helpful and fantastically relaxing environment.I Booked for a week and enjoyed it so much ,I ended up staying for two.I Thoroughly recommend it.
Space, Nice rooms, pictures, decoration, breakfast
The big welcome on arrival and the most luxurious and comfortable bedroom with our own log fire - lit by the staff in the evening whilst we were dining.
Much thought has been given to the design of the interior of this Ryad: glorious coloured walls, artwork, furnishings and objets d'art combine to create a wonderful ambience. The staff are enormously hospitable, courteous and helpful. Jean - Gabriel is the perfect host. Breakfasts a delight.
There was absolutely nothing to dislike!
Really friendly staff, they upgraded our room, suggested places to eat for dinner, offered tea on arrival and were just very welcoming and friendly.
The rooms were large and Very Clean with nice touches like amazing art, fresh flowers and scented candles burning. The shower was a dream relative to most riad showers...plenty of hot water too. But what really made the experience was the Riad owner, Joahn Claude, and his staff...John Claude is the real thing... he and his staff made our Essaouira experience restful but interesting. But more importantly, we were impressed the way he related to his staff...We liked seeing much respect he had for his staff and how much they consequently enjoyed working with us...We found this Riad to be a great experience all around.
We had a fantastic stay here. Jean Gabriel was an excellent host, friendly and very helpful. His Ryad is beautifully decorated and very comfortable. A very recommendable place to stay!
Wonderful architectural restoration; spacious rooms; great management and staff; beautiful art and accessories
Nothing except the bees at breakfast (a minor complaint)
A small attractive town on the sea. Very windy most of the time. Cooler than Marrakech.
Not many facilities if you want to stay for more than a few days
From the first moment we arrived the owner and his staff made us feel very welcome and we really felt at home immediately. The decoration and service in this Ryad is fantastic down to the very last little detail. We got shown a second alternative room which turned out to be a suite without asking or any extra cost. One evening we chose to eat in the Ryad and the meal was fantastic, would strongly recommend this. In the Ryad there were books available to read, all soft drinks free of charge and the breakfast of the terrasse excellent. We certainly will return to this Ryad, absolutely fantastic!
It would be great if the WIFI worked also on the roof terrasse.
Very friendly helpful staff Huge, spacious rooms Fantastic location Great breakfast included
