The location of the riad is easy to find, having a very visible sign in the door. Fast check in and service. Room was lovely and clean, good wifi connection. I only had a problem with the shower, maybe at the time everyone was taking shower too, but they offered to fix that right away by changing my room. Common... More

Riad Les Terrasses d' Essaouira is located about a 3 minute walk from the main square that is right on the ocean. Also, the main entrance to the riad is only about ½ block away from some of the medina shops. Since there are a number of restaurants within a 5 minute walk, the location is perfect. Similar to all... More

The ladies are welcoming and serve you tea on the terrace. The room was lovely and spacious! The terrace was a beautiful place to sit and have breakfast and relax. Great vibe with the people there! The people make the experience so welcoming and the riad is just GORGEOUS! Beware of the seagulls who try to steal your breakfast!

The riad is located within the walled city and within easy walking distance of the bus terminal. It's even rather easy to find. It is also located close to a good number of excellent restaurants. The staff are accomodating, the breakfasts are served up on the rooftop terrace and quite frankly, I could recommend this place to even my mother.... More

A beautiful hotel in an ideal location. South eastern part of the medina close to beach and port. The rooms are clean and serviced everyday. The staff are friendly and very helpful. I asked to change my room twice and nothing was too much trouble. Breakfast is good though mainly bread and jam. The larger rooms are amazing, though some... More

I used my credit card to make a reservation for a friend. The hotel made her pay cash and then charged my card. When I contacted them they said that we were a "no show". I tried to work with them but the manager refused to listen. To add insult to injury my friend had bad bites from bedbugs. I... More

We spent couple of great days in that riad. Chic place, good services, clean, with a very nice terrace to spend mornings and nights. It's in the Old Medina and you are close to the nice restaurants, markets and port. Good price for the value!

Best experience in Morroco we've had. Wonderful place, wonderful city, lovely terrace, and delicious breakfast with splendid view. Halim from reception was really kind, showed us a lot of places. I totally recommend this place to everyone!

The location and hotel itself is very nice and breakfast at the terrace is a big plus. However, the score would have been higher if the staff had some administrative training. All administrative tasks were huge efforts for them and took several attemtps to get right (with some guest help) - from allocating rooms with the correct number of beds... More
