I booked this hotel quite some time ago as a real treat to go away with my family and my husband. The next day, literally twenty-four hours later, my husband was told he was being made redundant. We are therefore not able to come to Morocco as clearly our finances are not going to be in good shape. The hotel...

I was given the room number 10 which faces the main road/square. It's very big (2 rooms actually) and sunny. All the staff was so nice, especially Mohammed... a super guy who's been helpful many times. Breakfast is rich and fresh. The hall gives you the opportunity to relax on the many coaches around and get to know all those...

Had a week in this riad. The room had views of the beach across rooftops, a small balcony and a large bathroom with shower and bath. We were very happy with the room but it could get a bit noisy when the wind was strong. The staff were extremely helpful and friendly and the room was cleaned daily. Breakfast was...

Excellent location in the Medina. Easy walking distance from a secured parking area. The room was big and comfortable but quite noisy and not so well maintained. The lobby of the hotel offers large sitting area.

Best French style breakfast in Morocco, very friendly staff,big thanks to Amine on reception so funny and kind, loved the gratis upgrade. We really should have spent a week here instead of 3 days, beds comfortable, hot water lots of pressure. The hotel has beautiful decor and is so easy to get to 5 minute walk from Supratour bus office....

We stayed here on our 5th visit to Essaouira having stayed in two other places previously and definitely liked this the best. So much so that we fully intend to return next year. We had a room on the roof and yes the stairs are many and steep but although I struggled a bit sometimes due to a painful joint...

Large riad/hotel, nice spacious very clean rooms, good Moroccan style breakfast sweet rather than savoury, eggs available for extra 150 dirham, wifi is intermittent in rooms but constant in lobby, staff very helpful with good English. Location is excellent just outside Medina, close to harbour and taxi rank too. You need to remember is not European so vive la difference,...

I would definitely recommend this hotel to anyone travelling to Essaouira. The location was great, right at the heart of the city. The breakfast was very good. The room really exceeded my expectations...just beautiful. A+
