Our favourite Riad during our two week trip in Morocco! Riad Safi is a haven within a bustling city. We were warmly welcomed by the host who was extremely friendly and helpful, and were even given a room upgrade for no extra charge. The roof terrace is stunning - a lovely place to relax after a day of exploring. Breakfast was delicious. We stayed an extra night because we loved it so much!
The hotel looks plain from outside to make you think you are about to delve into an average 2 stat hotel. Remember, we are in a city with no character or much to see, but for the dull. This hotel is very welcoming and the rooms carry any item of comfort you may need. Overlooking the ocean, your room can be facing the Medina parr; still fun. The terrace is superb and breakfast there is worth a million. The staff is very friendly.
I didn't want to put 5 stars only because I don't want you to think this is the Ritz Hotel, because it's not. What it is, though, is a fabulous little riad (an old traditional house built around a central courtyard in the medina) with a handful of rooms. Run by Sergio, who was at all times helpful, polite and interesting to talk to. It's the sort of place I'd love to be able to go back to again and again. Dinner was lovely, as was the breakfast.I was there in March, but I can imagine being there in the summer, cooling off on the gorgeous terrace in the evening.
Our stay in this Riad was perfect! It’s a beautiful and charming Riad inside the medina of Safi. Our room was spacious and very clean. The hosts Annamaria and Sergio were fantastic with us, they offered us a better room for the same price, and made our stay so easy. Dinner was delicious.
By accident we stranded in Safi at this Riad. At first we planned on staying only one night, and continue to essaouira the next day. But after the first evening we changed our plan! The Riad is very cosy yet peacefull. We had a very clean and authentic room. The roof terrace of the Riad is great during warm summer nights as well as during the lovely breakfast that was served. The owner of the Riad is a very kind and generous man, who will give you a lot of tips of what to see, do and eat in Safi & surroundings (a lot more than you might think at first)! We even had a private hammam experience! All by all I think we could even be amused for 3 of 4 days.. we will definately recommend to stay at this Riad in the lovely town of Safi, which is a hidden gem! To our suprise we discovered that there's a lot more to do in Safi then most people think! A lot go to Essaouira to buy fish at the harbour, but in Safi you will see the real harbour and Safi itself what is still a little authentic village with realy nice people and without the tourists. Sergio, the owner, showed us the harbour, pottery, beautiful cost hike, deserted beaches in one day. Ah and go to the public (but private) hammam before bedtime! Unfortunately there was no time left to see the lagoon ans the ruins nearby Safi. If you have a car, you want to go to the coast, and you got one (or 3) travelbuddies; Safi should be on your bucketlist!…
