This was not the most beautiful of the places we stayed in Morocco but it was our favourite. It is beautiful, though, in its own way, and rather idiosyncratic. Located in a quiet alley, in the centre of the medina. Our room was large and comfortable, with excellent bed linen. Absolutely no problem with shower pressure - an issue someone... More

After spending a day or two walking the streets of Essaouria, and getting lost, which is half the fun, it was always a relief to find Bobs Music, take a left , walk a few paces, ring the bell of Riad Watier, the door opens and you are admitted to the quiet of the Riad's courtyard. Even better, to relax... More

I loved staying here! Such a charming, well-maintained hotel in the heart of the medina. Hotel manager Hayat was so hospitable and made us feel so welcome with her attention to us-- making us tea and serving our kids cookies on arrival, showing us on a map the best way to see the city in the short time we had,...

Ryad Watier is the best place to stay in Essouira! No need to look further. Nestled away from the hustle and bustle of the rest of the medina, the courtyard, rooms, roof (with view of the ocean) are bright and uniquely decorated bridging old and new Morocco. Heyat, who manages the place is lovely, as are the rest of the... More

This riad is such a cool place. It's pretty much an art gallery inside. Hayat and the staff are great. The rooms have a modern touch and are well done. It's right in the middle if the Medina but off on a side street so it's quiet at night. Word of advice, try and get the rooftop room, bit of... More

Our stay here was delightful. It feels like staying in someone's home not in an hotel. Our room was very large with a sofa and chair and a terrace with recliners. We ate our evening meal here on 2 occasions, all the guests ate together at a huge table and we met some lovely people. Hyatt and her team of... More

We stayed here for 6 nights, and had the most wonderful time. Hayat and her team were incredibly hospitable, very welcoming, and extremely helpful. The Riad is beautiful, light and airy. The room was very spacious and very well equipped. Breakfasts were a lovely way to start the day on the rooftop terrace. We also dined here in front of... More

A real haven of tranquility and a remarkable gem hidden away behind an historic doorway. Jean's home not some bland chain-run enterprise and you are made very welcome. Comfy bed and a delicious rooftop breakfast with a glimpse of the sea
