Sylvie, Piermark and Hakim made our stay an overwhelmingly warm and friendly one and has made us want to return. The staff are all friendly, courteous and generous and the rooms were comfortable with individual decor and identity. The breakfast was delicious with lashings of mint tea and orange juice and a variety of other delights to accompany. Hakim organised...

That Riad is a good place to stay in Essaouira. Centrally located, with very nice and authentic rooms. Everything is very new as the Riad opened recently. The staff haven't been such friendly as we were used to from other Riads.

Spent one week here in the top floor suite during the Gnaua festival when Essaouira was heaving with visitors. The Malaika was cool, calm and a pleasant retreat from the heat and the crowds of the medina, just at the end of the alley, two minutes away from all the action. There are glitzier places to stay in Essaouira and...

Our group was age 13 to 79 and everyone delighted in the decor, location, comfort and especially the staff, all of who went out of their way and were happy to do so. Riad Malaika made our stay in Essaouira a perfectly wonderful memory.

Lovely, well put together place right in the centre of Essouria. Friendly staff and lovely accommodation. A little on the noisy side but really cool seating area. Great base for exploring Essouria.

I stayed in Riad Malaika for 5 nights in mid May 2010. We picked this Riad because of the wonderful reviews on Trip Advisor and we weren’t disappointed. We were made to feel at home from the outset and were welcomed with refreshing mint tea and oranges sprinkled with cinnamon. The whole Riad is beautifully decorated, there is great attention...
