We only found this Riad whilst reading Cinnamon City by Miranda Innes in Essaouria so it was serendipity that we should have had the pleasure of staying for one night in the Doueria. Will was an amazingly welcoming host and made our life easy from the time that we arrived at the Supratours terminal to our departure at the airport.... More

Where do i begin?? Not only is the Riad beautiful but the hosts are just as wonderful. The location of the Riad is right in the heart of this city, a 5 minute walk through the souks and you're slap bang in the middle of the square where the night comes alive with everything!!! Ive stayed there twice now and... More

I stayed at Riad Maizie earlier this month with my boyfriend for 3 nights. We stayed in the Doueria room which was beautiful (a/c a cool relief!), lovely bathroom, just what we wanted.

Great staff Great breakfast Great views from the rooftop. Unfortunately didn't get to meet the owners but our hosts were just perfect. I'd recommend getting a pre booked taxi as I doubt I would have found the place otherwise.

The upstairs rooms were fine, but the 2 rooms downstairs were not up to the mark. no AC in all rooms. the downstairs room AC was not great. the staff were very polite and obliging. breakfast average.this riad is meant for backpackers and young couple. long walk from the square to get to this riad.

leovw, Public Relations Manager at Riad Maizie, responded to this review

Thank you for your input but please note: 1 - We clearly state on our website the rooms with and without AC. 2 - The majority of people who stay in our Riad are very complementary about our traditional Moroccan breakfasts. 3 - The Riad is in no way intended for backpackers and young people (although they are welcome), our...

My husband and I stayed at Riad Maizie very recently 27th March to 3 April 2011. We were made thoroughly welcome. Even on the evening of our arrival there was a wonderful meal prepared for us. A caring forethought on the part of Will our host at the Riad. Breakfasts on the roof were sublime even down to how you... More

Riad Maizie is a lovely place to stay-especially if you're looking for something authentically Moroccan. It's beautifuly decorated-a lot of effort went in to the restoration. The owners Will and Miranda and staff Amal, Nezha and Hicham have created a warm and safe environment for the guests. All the food is prepared fresh everyday by Amal and Nezha and is... More
