Our apartment for 4 was spacious,.With tall ceilings and comfortable beds. Away from the busier touristy part of the city which meant quiet mornings and yet still a short walk to the restaurant quartier. Above all, it was the wonderfully warm staff that made for such a welcoming visit. We really felt a connection with many of the staff and...

It was the small touches that made this Riad; the rose petals, the vases of roses, the staff being attentive to all my needs, the receptionist being kind and caring. It had that 'wow' factor (for me, at least) who loves Riads and try to do 2 - 3 on each trip to Morocco. Maybe it was the combinations of...

If you are looking for an authentic and competitively priced place to stay in Essaouira, you should stay at this hotel. We arrived and felt we had been transported to a different world of good old charm, courtesy and very friendly staff. The breakfast was refreshingly different from the normal 'eat as much as you can' in your usual all...

In the heart of the medina yet peaceful and relaxing. Every attention to detail, spotlessly clean, beautifully decorated, very comfortable. Great breakfasts and very helpful and friendly staff. Lovely terraces to sit and relax and nice communal area. I was on my own and felt safe and secure, happy and relaxed. Highly recommended.

It is not the most beautiful Riad where I have been but it is fine. Staff is very nice. They offer the services of a taxi to go from Essaouira to Marrakech airport for 60€, very good price from what we have seen.

Located in the medina of Essaouira, it is perfect for the city stay. But it is also close enough to the beach. The staff is very friendly, they let us choose between a suite and 2 superior rooms, all were very pretty; it was a hard decision. The rooms are clean and have everything required like air condition, Wifi, TV...

A short walk into central Essaouira and good location for medina and beach. The riad character is confusing, trying to be both tradition and trendy - not sure what the connection is with Brigit Bardot who decorated several walls of my room. The room itself was large enough although strange design of toilet closet, open bath with suggestion of shower...

We stay 2 days in this Riad in the heart of Essaouira. Riad it is in very good location 5 minutes from everything in this city. They have very nice spa and ham am on the first floor. The only thing is that I expect better breakfast like the last 3 Riads that I stay before this.

Ok, the employees, Rashid and Rashida were superstars, they made us feel welcome and were very personal and helpful. he location is great as it is right in the Medina.Thats the end of the positives. Casa Lila was a disappointment, we were asked to pay for an extra bed for our daughter even though the room was for 3. This...

Stayed here with my wife and daughter this November. We arrived tired from travelling and the staff bent over backwards to help us settle in quick. The rooms are beautiful; clean, spacious and ornate with high ceilings and very tasteful fittings and furnishings. There are beautiful tiles everywhere. An ample breakfast is served on the roof terrace which has cracking...
