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.
