2nd time to Essouria and have stayed at the most expensive - Bleu Palais to the high moderate - Villa Maroc to this hotel (when Villa Maroc did not have rooms for us when we extended stay one night in March visit). For any negative reviews, are you kidding me? $60 and I got a room with a view of...

Excellent service and friendly and helpful team. The room was spacious and clean. The breakfast could be better, but I gave 5stars anyway because most hotels have a problem getting the breakfast service right.

We have been traveling throughout Morocco,including Fez, Marrakech, Rabat, and now Essaouria and have received nothing but warm, friendly service and helpful staff, until now. Our driver, who had accompanied us this entire trip, has been staying with us in our accommodation on a rollout or extra bed. All of the hotels have been aware of this and have not...

My partner and I stayed in this hotel for one evening, it doesn't look much to the outside but is quite attractive inside. The restaurant was begin updated so I cannot comment on this, we were upgraded to a suite which looked exactly the same as the room we had booked, the room was comfortable enough and we had a...

Summary - Rude staff (actually got shouted at down the phone) - Dishonest staff (will lie to you and your booking agent) - Unhelpful staff (will ignore emails, I'm still waiting for a response - it's now been more than 3 weeks) Detail I used booking.com and entered the wrong email address. Totally my fault. Changed our schedule last minute,...

First time in this riad. Met at the airport, and the taxi was met by a guy with a barrow when we reached the city. Straight to the riad, easy check in, and shown our room which was fine although I would not like to have stayed in it with young children due to the low bannister around the first-floor...

We stayed here in Oct 2016. After a long drive from Casablanca and a long overseas flight we entered this riad expecting more. The courtyard garden is shabby and dying. The front staff are indifferent. When asked if they provided bottled water we were told no and if we wanted some we could buy from them but get it cheaper...

We booked this Riad on the back of the photos featured on the riad's own website. On arrival, it can only be described as a dimly lit mausoleum. There was literally no warmth or atmosphere. We were shown our room, extension of said mausoleum with a sarcophagus to bathe in, then invited for welcome mint tea on the terrace. Admittedly...

Very good location, central to shops and beach. Easy walk to a number of great restaurants. Staff were generally friendly and helpful. The rooms were comfortable though the decor was a bit tired. It should be noted that renovations were underway during our stay.

We loved it here. Beautiful roof terrace, great staff and a comfortable room. Central location in the heart of the old medina. Close to several very good restaurants. Highly recommended would definitely stay here again. Public parking close by.
