    Awesome location in the heart of Essaouira - incredibly handy for the central square, the beach and the docks. Opted for the suite room - it was big and included a nice seating area. The Riad offers a traditional experience of a Riad design with most rooms looking into the courtyard. Provided with a welcome mint tea and Moroccan biscuits. Staff were always welcoming and friendly. Breakfast was good although less varied than other more expensive Riads we visited. Rooftop view is amazing of the sea and the docks, including the Borj El Barmil.
