    This Riad is so adorable at first glance, but our family room was so tiny, there was no room to have 2 standing adults in the room at the same time. There was no chair in the suite either. Breakfast was good, but items they said would be available were not, like fruit salad and eggs.

    The manager told us the best places to eat, have a drink and buy Moroccan products. Made the trip a lot easier and he was super helpful. Rooms are super nice and spacious, very good internet. Will definitely go back when I come to Essaouira next!

    Loved Essaouira and this hotel. Very well located, quiet and charming. Damien was so welcoming and arranged for a guide ( Saíd, whom i highly recommend ) then went out of his way to take us and other guests to the fish market to arrange lunch. Really enjoyed our stay 😃

    Relaxing in a crazy town ;)

    Location is great. Not a hard walk to the main square or souk. Quiet and enjoyable roof deck. Pool was a nice bonus after the hot days of summer. Staff is amazing. Breakfast is very good and includes homemade yogurt and fresh squeezed OJ. We stayed in the suite with the private patio. Very nice on the top floor.

    Great place

    Nice place, clean room! All the staff were so friendly and helpful, offering tips for where to eat and visit. Great breakfast on the rooftop, such a good way to start the day. Essaouira was a great spot to end our time in Morocco, the sea breeze and the much more chill vibe was so good!

    My boyfriend and I had the most beautiful stay at Riad Baladin. Khadija was so helpful and so kind throughout our stay. Her recommendations and help with bookings and reservations were essential to our stay. The riad is quaint - but perfectly the way a beach town place should be. Location in the old city is so easy to navigate. I would seriously live here if I could. I woke up to the sound of waves and seagulls every morning. It was so peaceful and magical.
