Tucked away in the old town, this place is a treasure. The room is spacious, the design and layout has a fabulous character.and the courtyard is something else. The marble fountain in the center of a stair shaped mosaic is just magnificent. The rooms are clean and the staff friendly, but make sure you know where the nearest ATM is...

We were amazed coming in to the hotel, the courtyard and room were beautifully decorated. Fantastic design, full of character. Friendly welcome and the staff were lovely and helpful. Rooms were very clean and serviced everyday. Very big breakfast was included and you could have it in the courtyard, in your room or on the roof! Wifi worked fine. All...

Visited here late last year and decided on this Riad as it had been suggested by a friend who had come across it when there themselves. The decor is lovely and the room we stayed in was extremely spacious, complete with a sofa and separate toilet/bathroom. It is also very clean, my only gripe was that it was quite dark...

Our suite was as grand as we hoped. Felt like we were sleeping in a sultans palace! The bathroom was spectacular and ideal for a long royal soak. Very nicely located within the medina, near to fish food stalls. Nice view from breakfast terrace and onsite hamman.

For a first timer this was ideal for me I got main, pedi and all over massage all for £15 bargain. I did not stay at this hotel I only used the hammam. Having seen the layout, if I can't get my usual rooms at Madada Mogador I will consider staying here.

This is a really difficult review. We walked past this Riad last year when in Essaouira and planned to stay the next time we travelled to the city. Which was August 2014. We were only here for a short while and unfortunately it did not live up to our expectations. The courtyard and salon are stunning and we also liked...

This hotel was a secret TREASURE! There were very few people staying there. The hotel was SO beautiful, gorgeous grand decor. The room was very large and again so elegant. The women in the hotel were SO helpful and accommodating and very polite! The internet only works downstairs but aside from that it was AMAZING! We couldn't believe our luck...

Very good service by the young women in the lobby. Had nice breakfast (including small omelets) served on the terrace overlooking the ocean. Room was spacious, big bed and big bathroom with huge bathtub. Both riad and the room itself is beautifully and "richly" decorated. To us the location was superb, a few steps away from the most bustling area....

We had a lovely time in this Riad. We were having doubts after reading the reviews. But the service was great and lovely. I really don't understand what the previous visitors were talking about. We had a wonderfull room, just like the a 1001 night tale. Beautiful decorations and a lovely breakfast. I didn't go for the hammam and hot...

“If you're interested in picking up some wifi then choose a room on the 1st floor (although it's not guaranteed). The decor can be quiet dark without natural light, try to get a room with windows.”
