It's a bit of a splurge compared with some other places, but the food is really good and the atmosphere and service are wonderful.

Luxury place in the middle of the Medina. Great service, the staff is very efficient and friendly. The inner court offers a real oase in Essaouira. Would love to go back there again if I go back to Essaouira.

This is a stunning oasis at the edge of the Essaouira Medina. Luxurious and cozy. Wonderful rooms, an amazing rooftop restaurant and pool, excellent service. Simply the best place to stay in Essaouira

I stayed in the beautiful Riad as a birthday treat. The Table d'hôte menu was pretty disappointing, lovely entrées but tasteless main dishes. Other guests may well have done better with a la carte choices. The heated pool was absolutely wonderful...best part of my stay.

I loved the place which is something between a palace and a riad . I have seen this place as far as I remember in a movie from Claude Lelouch. Rooms are very beautiful comfortable beds and great bathrooms. The hotel is in the medina,but also very close to the exit and to the seaside . Breakfast was good but... More
