We stayed here in Oct 2016. After a long drive from Casablanca and a long overseas flight we entered this riad expecting more. The courtyard garden is shabby and dying. The front staff are indifferent. When asked if they provided bottled water we were told no and if we wanted some we could buy from them but get it cheaper... More

We booked this Riad on the back of the photos featured on the riad's own website. On arrival, it can only be described as a dimly lit mausoleum. There was literally no warmth or atmosphere. We were shown our room, extension of said mausoleum with a sarcophagus to bathe in, then invited for welcome mint tea on the terrace. Admittedly... More

Very good location, central to shops and beach. Easy walk to a number of great restaurants. Staff were generally friendly and helpful. The rooms were comfortable though the decor was a bit tired. It should be noted that renovations were underway during our stay.

We loved it here. Beautiful roof terrace, great staff and a comfortable room. Central location in the heart of the old medina. Close to several very good restaurants. Highly recommended would definitely stay here again. Public parking close by.

Excellent location on the edge of the Medina in a wide side street. Friendly staff, especially the charming breakfast waiters, one of whom recommended walks and drives in the locality which were very helpful. The hotel was having a an end of season spruce in the corridors as we left, ready for the next season. Our room was beautifully clean,... More

We stayed as a family here 5 years ago, and had a great time. We were in Essaouira again this year and popped into the Palais for lunch- the roof-top restaurant has one of the best views in town, and the food and service were both as good as we remembered. Definitely worth checking out, even if just for a... More

Frankly I don't understand how there is so many positive reviews for this hotel. Palais des Remparts was unfriendly, beds uncomfortable, atmosphere quite depressing and the premises much in need of repair. The best things about this hotel is the location. We were greeted without a smile or a hello, instead we got "fill out this form". Once we were... More

The hotel sports a very nice rooftop terrace with a splendid view over the city, the ramparts and the sea. It's also open to non hotel guests. Very good place to have a morning coffee since they serve the best coffee in town, including a bottle of water for a very reasonable price.

“Ask for extra blankets at night (in Winter anyway) when the temperature drops quite considerably. If you stay in the sea view room be prepared for the roar from the wind & sea on stormy nights - there is no double glazing of windows - you really feel surrounded by the elements!”
