Located just inside the medina, Riad du Figuier is a haven of peace and relaxation among the bustling bazaars of Essaouira's old city. The Riad has a very nice garden, well-maintained by the always friendly and smiling caretaker Mohammed. Rooms are spacious, furnished and decorated with gusto, although a bit humid, especially at night. The three terraces overlooking the Riad...

This Riad is has an authentic feel of living inside the walls, but is only a short walk to the port. The people Hayat and Mohammad are wonderful people and can't do enough for you! The rooms are more than adequate and have all you could want! I went with a friend and wanted to go back in April but...

With a quintessentially Moroccan interior, Riad Du Figuier is charmingly beautiful; a real sanctuary in the city. The striking courtyard is a peaceful place with tiny roaming tortoises and a banana tree from which you can eat the fruit! The yellow room was large and attractive. They have great taste in interior design! The hosts make you feel welcome, in...

We have just spent two nights in this charming guesthouse. It is a little on the shabby side, but has a real atmosphere of faded grandeur with original features such as painted doors and tiles. The rooms were very clean and quite large. The staff are lovely but do not speak any English so you will need to speak French...

We were the only guests at this sweet, quirky little Riad in Essaouira for three nights between Christmas and New Years, and found it a nice budget option. The courtyard is lovely with a burbling fountain, the rooms were very generously sized and very clean. We had the yellow and red rooms, which the riad advertises as good for families...

I came to Essaouira to enjoy this world famous spot for kite surf and Ghnawa music. Little did I know that my fondest memories will actually be the wonderful time spent at the "Riad du Figuier". From the warm welcome, nice service, delicious food (prune tajin !!!) to the typical plush furniture, tips to discover the Medina or trips to...
