Individual guest reviews

  • Family with children

    Very friendly, nice atmosphere, what you want from a riad in Morocco.

    • Average rating
  • Couple

    The room was extremely spacious, and very comfy. The staff were great, and helped in any way they could. The location is the selling point, right in the heart of the Medina.

    We had two meals at the Riad (due to myself being unwell for 2 days, and no option of leaving the Riad), both of which were very expensive. I would recommend eating at one of the many good restaurants in Essaouira. Also the TV in our room did not work.

    Nice location in the center of Medina (old city), quiet and very friendly people.

    Both riads I stayed in (two towns) suffer from one nasty thing - mould! I could not see it but I could smell it in a bathroom.

    • Average rating
  • Group of friends

    Staff were very helpful -gave good recomendations for restaurants. Very centrally located just off the main street. Near bus station. Quiet at night.

    Accomodation is quite basic.. Rooms are dark and small. Bathroom antiquated - light bulb with exposed wire fitted in shower!! Do not accept credit card payment. Bedlinen was rough and pillow lumpy..

    The riad was very well located right next to the main street. Very central. The staff was very nice and helpfull.breakfast was ok but took a litle time to be served. Wifi and nicely decorated. Would recomend if you want a place to spend only the night but not if you want to spend a lot of time in the room.

    Despite well decorated, the riad seemed to be old. They cleaned eery day the room but ir was still a bit dusty and we could spot spiderwebs in some hidden conners. Small moths were arround too. The room where the breakfast was served was a bit cold but nice. Shower had hot water but the support was broken. Also the watter didn't run well.

    atmosphere. Deep within the Medina of the old city and lots of atmosphere. The staff were particularly welcoming and helpful. Skimpy breakfast but adequate.

    The location is great, inside the medina, near the souk, the fish restaurants and the beach. The staff - Nadia and Ahmed - we're so helpful and attended to all our needs (having someone to meet us at the bus stop, printing us documents, arranging for taxis, taking us to the best fish-stands, etc) always with a genuine smile.

    The staff could not do enough for us. They were so helpful and kind. Would go out of there way to get us anything we asked for.

    I would have liked more daylight lighting.
