We had some wonderful days staying at Lunetoile in Essaouria. The place is very charming and has a nice terrace where we ate breakfast in the morning sun. The owner Sue is kind and helpfull showing us good local places to eat and visit. We would definitely recommend staying at this riad!

A charming riad, beautifully decorated with a Moroccan edge. Lovely complimentary breakfast each morning including hot fresh croissants and freshly squeezed orange juice. We ate it every morning on the terrace while we enjoyed the sun. Sue the owner was incredibly helpful, she met us on the first day and welcomed us to Essaouira by offering her superb recommendations of...

Wonderful stay at this delightful Riad. We were met just outside the medina where a helpful chap took our suitcases to our Riad. We were welcomed with tea and a very informative and gratefully received map with a list of great options for food, lunch, views, music and any other amenities we required. The rooms were divine. Rose petals to...

My husband and I stayed here on the first floor. The reception was lovely and the 2 ladies that work there are very kind. The breakfast was amazing. The only problem was that there was a big hole above the door in our room that connected to the main space by the kitchen. So whenever anybody woke up or talked...

Hiii Katrina, thanks very much for your review. The HOLE above the door...as you correctly mention, is, in fact, a very, old, artifact, from the original house, forming an air-vent. So sorry if you were disturbed by noise...we certainly do try our best to impress upon our guests to be as quiet as possible in the mornings, if other guests...

Kabira the lovely housekeeper met us at the bus station and walked us to the riad which is very easy to find and located within easy reach of the shops, harbour, ramparts etc. On arrival we received a very friendly welcome from the owner, Sue. We were shown around the riad and all the rooms we saw were beautifully decorated...

This was our first stop in Morocco and we loved the city. I emailed and messaged Sue it seems like a dozen times before we got there and it felt like I was visiting a friend instead of a guest house. She had us message her out expected arrival and had someone waiting for us at the front gate to...

Great stay -- Sue and her coworkers are all great and helped us organize a fantastic stay in Essaouira. Our room was brilliantly decorated, breakfast was yummy and location in general was right in the heart of Essaouira, yet tranquil and reserved. Definitely a come-back!

Stayed there for 2 nights and it was really good. The location is calm and central - could not wish for better; the rooms are rather spacious; the terrace is very cozy and breakfast is big. The staff is nice. Just the riad is slightly damp (no mold though), but i guess this is this the problem with all houses...

Thanks very much Jana. No, we have no mould, in fact, I always believed that our Riad was remarkably dry! But, evidently, in comparison to the Riads in Hot, Dry, Marrakech, perhaps, our houses here, do seem damp? We do,our best to keep it beautifully dry and aerated, and, thankfully, you loved it! Manynthanks for your comment.
