This was a very nice place to have dinner, once again bring a torch to read the Menu. Rather empty when we were there. Good food, fish very good my Tagine lacked depth of flavour. Amazing photograph hangings by Serge Anton. Wifi not working often so could not pay by card had to go back next day to pay in...

Firstly know what a Riad is; central courtyard, all rooms open into it. Some rooms here have outside windows but not all, and if yours doesn’t there is no natural light and absolutely no ventilation without leaving the shutters and windows open for all to see in. There is no lift. Lack of in-room fresh air and appalling wifi are...

The staff were so nice and welcoming, and the hotel rooms were really neat and looked lovely!! The bathroom was really big with a walk in shower and large bath!! The room was nicely decorated and really close to the centre of Essaouira!! The breakfasts were also really lovely on the open top , top of the building!!

We were fortunate enough to have come across the restaurant almost by accident within the Riad. We booked to visit the following day and being a group of 9 persons, were welcomed like royalty. The service was impeccable and the food even better. I would highly recommend this restaurant for anyone visiting Essaouira.

I booked a room at this riad/hotel, on the booking with the agency i chose a room for 3 but i had to check with the hotel if the room will have space for 3 beds. They informed me that they can provide an extra bed for a charge, I'm not sure if this was at the fault of the...

This hotel is beautiful. They treat you very well and have a great location at the edge of the Medina and walking distance from the ocean. The room was huge and comfortable. The bed was great and had many different weights of blankets for different weather. Breakfast is served on the roof, overlooking the ocean - amazing. Our tour operator...

Great fish dinner in a beautiful patio. We preordered 3,5kg fish which was excellent prepared with spices, vegetables and rice. Beautiful appetizers and desert (chocolate fondant). Odlična ribja večerja. Naročilo smo 3,5kg ribo dan vnaprej. Bila je odlično pripravljena na lokalni način z začimbami, sočna, s prilogami - riž, zelenjava, polnjeni lignji, malanzani, paprike. Krasne predjedi. Čudovit ambient v atriju.

And the best part were the prices sardines 60, dorada 70 and schrimps 150 dirhams. All dishes inclusive of side dish. Highly recomend. We were a group of 7 and all of us...

Beautiful Riad close to harbour with a very large rooftop terrace overlooking the bay and the harbour. Good place to have coffee, although there's room for improving the cappuccino. Service is friendly and prices reasonable. Good place to have lunch.

Overall this is a very nice hotel. But there are a few issues. The only blankets they provide are thick comforters that I would use in the winter. The rooms tend to be warm so I ended up asking for extra sheets to get the right comfort level. There is no air-conditioning or heat in the room. All these issues...

Good afternoon Bescolas, First of all, thank you for your comment. May I ask you in wich type of room where you? All our rooms have underfloor heating, except the ones located on the third floor, due to their position under the terrace they usually are warm enough. Climate in Essaouira is temperate almost all along the four seasons, that's...
