“Vaut le detour”
Reviewed 1 May 2012

El Jadidia is a poor man's Essaouira, and therein lies its appeal. It has yet to draw the crowds and the attendant knick-knack shops; and there are no banana pancakes. If you are wavering on whether to visit, the Riad Soleil d'Orient should help to make up your mind. This is a class riad, the product of energy and imagination, in a town where there are few other riads, if any. The owner, Oliver, is extremely helpful but unobtrusive; meals are excellent (much of the breakfast spread -- bread, jams and honey -- is homemade) and, with just half a dozen rooms or so, the riad is intimate without being claustrophobic. It has an excellent roof terrace, besides. Yes, it is a little bit hard to find, but don't worry, phone and someone will meet you (Oliver, in our case). Your sense of adventure will be rewarded.

Stayed here for a stop-over in June/July 2011, on our way around the country!
The riad - perfectly sized in this case - not to small nor to big - is beautiful indeed!
Its a tranquil oasis in the middle of El Jadidia and we strongly recomend it to folks wanting to stay in the area. The breakfast was delicious and nicely served.
The owner and the staff were very friendly.

Thank you for a pleasant stay - see you again when we return!

We arrived late in the evening after getting lost driving around the town. Not to worry, we phoned and a staff member walked to where we were (a few blocks away) and guided us to the property. Although it was quite late, the staff prepared an outstanding dinner just for us with a beautiful local wine to top it off. Breakfast the next morning was equally excellent. Meals are provided in the cool and peaceful courtyard with lots of plants and trees and even a tame chameleon (although note that there is a mosque nearby and calls to prayer really echo around the area). The old Portugese city is a short, safe walk away.

We have spent in Riad Soleil d'Orient few days and it was great! We have been in several riads in Morocco and this one was the best - rooms were done in original design, very clean and big. The owner as well as other staff were all very nice and helpful.
Thank you,

We spent three nights here durng our first visit to El-Jadida, and we will definitely be back. Olivier made every accomodation for us and our three-month old daughter, which included sending one of his employees to meet us in front of the Portugeuse City because we never would have found this Riad without him. The staff there is extremely pleasant and very helpful. Breakfast is wonderful and served in the center garden. The pictures do not do give the garden justice, an amazing place and very well appointed. We also made use of the rooftop terrace, which is perfect for sunbathing or sitting in the shade reading books, getting away from it all.

The Riad is a bit far from the downtown restaurants, however, the meals we had there are unquestionably the finest we have had here in Morocco. An elegant blend of Moroccan and French cooking. After eating there the first night we were helpless - we HAD to eat there every night, and each night was different and more amazing than the night before!

Truly a great place, with great staff and Olivier was extrememly helpful. Thank you Riad Soleil D'Orient, and we will be back!
