The hotel is located near the fish restaurants at the port, the beach, and the activity of the medina. It is a short walk to the bus station.It is in a beautiful riyad style building. You get some intererior noise from the courtyard. Service is OK. Don't pay extra for the breakfast. It is a very simple continental breakfast that...

We stayed for a week, rented a double room. The building is beautiful, everything worked well and we enjoyed the included breakfast either in the ground floor area or up on the terrace. Staff were helpful and attentive with all requests. We would highly recommend this hotel to anyone!

We arrived at Essaouira in the late evening and this place was our first choice. At first, we were a little bit upset about the kinda high price, but the room was clean, warm and there was a hot water (!!!) (trust me, after 2 weeks of backpacking it is a rare pleasure). In the morning staff served breakfast on...

Very centrally located can get to most places from this location, friendly staff, nice rooms they have a nice terrace overlooking the city, Staff are not pushy looking for a tip as in most places in Morocco, so it was a pleasure tipping them.

Nice stay if you look for an accomodation just behind the Medina wall and want to avoid wandering in the narrow streets looking for your hotel. The room we had is cleen but not cosy, just functional. It's a place to crash that don't have the soul you could find in other places around. The view from the terrace is...

The Wind Palace is a beautiful riad in the middle of the old town - perfect for exploring. The rooms are bright and spacious. Ours had a balcony which looked out over the street. Breakfast was served upstairs on the terrace and was lovely. Only one thing to look out for is the call to prayer at 5.15 am -...

Centrally located Riad within the walls of old city Essaouira. The Riad was very comfortable, excellent customer service and the balcony view of the souk and the view of the sea and surrounding was amazing. We did not realize the temperature even during summer was only around 60 degree F which we felt was breath taking. Whle it was somewhat...

We were looking for a last minute break and this popped up and looked lovely,including good reviews on trip advisor so we booked it for a 4 night break over my birthday week.

Immediately upon entering the doors of the Wind Palace, you leave behind the noise and bustle of the Median outside, entering calmness and beauty. The lobby is illuminated by a four-storey light shaft, open to the skies above. Each floor has a balcony surrounding this open space, and rooms have a window opening onto the balcony. The rooftop patio looks...
