A secret oasis in Essaouira's medina
Beautifully designed and decorated riad, Ryad Lyon Mogador is a secret oasis amidst being in the center of Essaouira's 18th century medina. My room was clean, well-lit, and charminly decorated of soft white and soft light brown colored linens and the traditional tan colored clay walls. The rooftop, also the breakfast area, provides a panoramic view of the medina, sqala, and the Atlantic ocean. Full breakfast consists of eggs, yogurt w/ fruits, msemen (phyllo crepes) w/ honey, semolina bread, assorted jams, freshly squeezed orange juice, and coffee or mint tea. The staff were fantastic! Friendly and helpful w/ recommendations on where to eat and what yo see/do, and accommodating. We left our luggage after check out and came back in the afternoon after more sightseeing. Wished I could've stayed longer!!!

Lovely hotel
Very lovely building. Kind staff and freshly made breakfast. We found a postcard of the main door of the hotel sold in a shop!

Everyone Wants to Come Back
The rooftop is amazing, with 360-degree views that include the ocean. It's one of my favorite breakfast spots in all my (many) travels and also a great outdoor spot for quiet relaxation. Jerome and Karol are kind, helpful hosts. My room was clean and comfortable. And, really, every other guest I met said they want to come back.

Riad Lyon Mogador hit the spot!
We stayed for 2 nights in Essaouira and i am very happy that we picked Riad Lyon Mogador. The Riad is spectacularly pretty and well located in the heart of the Medina. We were able to easily walk around the city walls and to the beach and other landmarks in Essaouira. What made the stay really special is the kindness and care from the hosts Jerome and Karol. From the moment we checked in with Jerome, we knew we were in good hands. We got directions, restaurant recommendations and local tips from Jerome which were all fantastic. Another highlight is breakfast on the terrace. Not only is the breakfast delicious, but sitting in the winter sun and getting views over Essaouira are really fab. Jerome stopped by to chat a few times and make sure everything was going well. I cannot recommend a stay at the Lyon Mogador highly enough.

Perfect town, perfect riad. I’ll be back!
While my first impression was amazing,it only got better. My breakfast the next morning was exactly what I wanted and she let me choose! The rooftop is sublime, the riad overall is the nicest I’ve ever stayed in and honestly one of the nicer places I have ever stayed in any country. There is so much charm and heart in this place. From the light fixtures, to the beautiful neutral palette of colors in the rooms, to the incredible succulents adorning the rooftop. The owners of the riad are also such a delight. I stand by my first impression and wish I could live there, well maybe not forever, but I would like to stay for a long time and copy all their decorating ideas!! Thank you again

Perfect Riad in Essaouira
Our stay was incredible! This stylish Riad is almost hidden inside Essouaira's city walls, in a perfect location. We were greeted by the owner, Karole, who served us mint tea, showed us how to navigate the city, and recommended activities and restaurants, which she later scheduled for us. Despite our limited French and her limited English, her kindness was easy to understand and we couldn't have asked for a better stay! Then, there was the breakfast. It couldn't have been more perfect! The Riad accommodated allergies easily and served decadent meals on the roof terrace with stunning views of the ocean, beaches, and city. I would highly recommend this Riad and hope to return to it!

Very good 8.0
Karol and Jerome and the rest of the staff made our stay a wonderful experience and made us feel like at home in this excellent Riad. Special remark on the tasty breakfast in the rooftop with beautiful view of Essaouria.
