This was a lovely place to stay but you should know it does not have air conditioning. Nights cool off but it can be warm in the day time. rooms are situated on 3 floors and the stairs are steep. Noise carries but the Riad is in a fabulous location.

Through Bab (Gate) Sbaa. First left (menu boards at the end of the street). We stayed in a similar Riad in Marrakech during our visit to Morocco, but only had dinner here. If I return to Essouira I would definitely look this one up. It is just lovely. We were delighted with our choice for dinner. Wonderful food! Excellent Service...

This was a very nice place to have dinner, once again bring a torch to read the Menu. Rather empty when we were there. Good food, fish very good my Tagine lacked depth of flavour. Amazing photograph hangings by Serge Anton. Wifi not working often so could not pay by card had to go back next day to pay in...

Firstly know what a Riad is; central courtyard, all rooms open into it. Some rooms here have outside windows but not all, and if yours doesn’t there is no natural light and absolutely no ventilation without leaving the shutters and windows open for all to see in. There is no lift. Lack of in-room fresh air and appalling wifi are...

The staff were so nice and welcoming, and the hotel rooms were really neat and looked lovely!! The bathroom was really big with a walk in shower and large bath!! The room was nicely decorated and really close to the centre of Essaouira!! The breakfasts were also really lovely on the open top , top of the building!!

We were fortunate enough to have come across the restaurant almost by accident within the Riad. We booked to visit the following day and being a group of 9 persons, were welcomed like royalty. The service was impeccable and the food even better. I would highly recommend this restaurant for anyone visiting Essaouira.

I booked a room at this riad/hotel, on the booking with the agency i chose a room for 3 but i had to check with the hotel if the room will have space for 3 beds. They informed me that they can provide an extra bed for a charge, I'm not sure if this was at the fault of the...

This hotel is beautiful. They treat you very well and have a great location at the edge of the Medina and walking distance from the ocean. The room was huge and comfortable. The bed was great and had many different weights of blankets for different weather. Breakfast is served on the roof, overlooking the ocean - amazing. Our tour operator...

Great fish dinner in a beautiful patio. We preordered 3,5kg fish which was excellent prepared with spices, vegetables and rice. Beautiful appetizers and desert (chocolate fondant). Odlična ribja večerja. Naročilo smo 3,5kg ribo dan vnaprej. Bila je odlično pripravljena na lokalni način z začimbami, sočna, s prilogami - riž, zelenjava, polnjeni lignji, malanzani, paprike. Krasne predjedi. Čudovit ambient v atriju.

“All room sizes are very nice, but the junior suite is the best. Pick one with numerous windows, so the natural light comes in.”
