We had a fantastic week staying in this beautiful Riad. There are great views from the roof terrace, where a fantastic breakfast is served every day. Our room was extremely clean with a large and very comfortable bed. Staff at the Riad were very helpful, although not a lot of English is spoken by the staff, we got by without too much trouble with our basic French and their eagerness to please! Would definitely stay here again.
Our family (me, my wife, two daughters 14 and 20, and father -in-law 86) had a lovely week in Essaouira staying in this riad. The roof terrace can be used for relaxing or sunbathing. Friendly staff, a little French goes a long way. The breakfast is simple (bread, pancakes, olives, tomatoes, eggs) but there is a toaster and it was just what we wanted. It is located right in the medina and not far from the port or beach. Just ask at reception if you want to hire bikes.
Beautiful, stylish and artistic guest house. Staff were helpful but not intrusive.
Property is tranquil but there is a lot of noise late in the evening from shouting in the surrounding streets. Nothing some good earplugs couldn't deal with!
Very central location.
Onyx room was lovely and more spacious than the others.

"Perfect place to stay in a wonderful coastal town"
I cannot praise this small riad enough. While it has been renovated in a more modern style, it retains a comfortable, warm atmosphere. The rooms are exceptionally clean and the beds just the right mix of firmness and softness for me. The wi-fi is fast and the four breakfasts I had were the best that I had in my 4 weeks in Morocco. The riad itself is located at the quiet end of one of the main streets of Essaouira's medina so there is no disturbance from outside during sleeping hours. The man square, port, restaurants, shopping area and cafes are all within an easy 5 minute walk.. Monika and Fatima were amazing hosts who helped make my first solo trip to Essaouira Morocco wonderful. I hope to return one day.
We booked one of the suites for 2 nights. The hotel is very charming and tranquil and you feel the staff doing their best to make you feel like you are at home. It was my first experience in a riad and i was overwhelmed. Definitely coming back again.
Stayed April 2014
Helpful staff on hand to make your stay enjoyable, can also put you in touch with a lovely place to take a hammam. Room was comfy. I was hoping for a bigger window to make the most of the sea view but all in all it was great.
