Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities
Warm and friendly staff. Nice roof garden with hot tub but we were lucky to have it to ourselves as only 2 of 8 rooms were let. It’s 10 minutes walk to the beach and down a back ally but it felt safe. Bathrooms are amazing with plenty of hot water. There was a fridge in the room. It’s expensive fir Morocco though.

Amazing Riad in Essaouira
Great location. The Riad is located near the edge of the medina. We took the Supertour bus from Marrakech. The drop off was only a 10min walk from the Riad. The room was well decorated and comfortable. We roof top was amazing and had a hot tub. Since we were there in the winter we were not able to take advantage of it. We would definitely stay at the Riad Chbanate again.
