We have just spent three nights here as part of a three center holiday in Morocco. If you were not shown where the hotel is you would never find it. With just a simple blue door in a high white wall and no name sign it hides conveniently just inside the Medina. It is a total contrast inside to what...

We were very impressed after entering the Lobby door to see the large beautiful lobby and garden leisure and dining area. This riad has all the ammenities, wonderful service, great dining, and very well appointed rooms. Just outsjde is the really unique medina with very interesting souks.and ancient and very active harbor. We very highly recommend this affordable luxury hotel.

This is a lovely hotel/riad in a great location in Essaouira. The staff a friendly and incredibly helpful. The price to stay is very reasonable and the food is wonderful. They have a mix of western cuisine as well as traditional that taste beautiful. I really enjoyed my time at this hotel.

This was a former palace renovated to a Riad. You expect a lot from Relais & Chateau, and this did not disappoint. Spacious room with sitting area and large bathroom. Great location inside the Medina. I walked by the door several times before I found it: looks like nothing from the outside (literally, a plain wall), but step inside to...

Well located. Good sized room. Plumbing out of date, rusty around tap! Old fashioned bathroom. Shower does not evacuate properly. Air conditioning shut down, musty smell.

We really liked this place. Very welcoming upon arrival, and we ate breakfast here each morning. The room was beautiful and I could not get over how amazing the hotel interior was. It's the perfect location too. The restaurant seemed a bit expensive, even by the standard of some of the high end dining in Marrakech, so we did not...

This hotel feels like an enclave. Behind the white walls and big doors from the busy medina street its all hushed calm, pot plants and lots of tiling. Its just inside the gates from the south side of the medina. All of the rooms appear to be opening onto an internal courtyard with a pool, bar terrace on the roof....
