Traditional Riad in the heart of the Medina
Centered in the heart of the Medina. Very warm welcome on arrival. Beautiful traditional Riad feel from when you walk through the door. Be prepared for many steps to climb or be sure to ask for a room on lower floors. Extremely spacious room. Nicely laid out. Traditional bathroom though no actual shower, only a shower head laying in the bath and no shower curtain which proved awkward and inconvenient. Exceptionally noisy from early morning with other guests and music playing. Room doesn’t block much sound out. All in all relatively good value for money, great location and very friendly staff

A lovely place to stay. Just what you’d expect from a Riad. Our room was cool and calm with high ceilings and a lovely four post bed. The reception/communal area was tranquil with a bubbling fountain. Breakfast was served on the Terrance with rooftop views over Essaouira. The perfect stay.

The Riad is great, the location is good, staff is fantastic, specially Fatma. When you walk in you feel like you are transported to a different place, it’s quiet, peaceful and well decorated. The “tradicional “ Marocan breakfast on the terrace is marvellous. Would higher recommend and would stay again.

Lovely Essauoira
Staff was very helpful. Able to leave luggage on final day while went shopping. Rooftop breakfast was lovely. Room spacious and clean. No A.C., but coastal breeze kept room cool, even in July.

You can’t beat breakfast on the roof looking at the sea and listening to the birds. The room was comfortable and quiet. The rhiad was a combination of traditional Morocco and modern France.
