We just spent a very relaxing 9 days at Riad Chorfa. Our original stay was for 3 nights only but we enjoyed Essaoira (& the riad) so much we extended our stay.
The riad was centrally located & beautifully decorated. Nicole (and her offsider Claudia) looked after us so well, we felt like we were visitors and not paying guests. They both recommended restaurants & things to do & provided a great deal of local knowledge which made our time in Essaoira. Claudia arranged car hire for a day & Nicole took us to Chez Abdour, a rustic seafood cafe near Sidi Kaouki, which was a great experience.
Eating at Caravan Cafe, Triskala restaurant & Elixr restaurant were highlights & provided some of the best meals & ambiance that I have encountered in Morocco.
I appreciated the many small touches such as herbal tea in the room, slippers, bottles of water & firewood so that we could light a fire at night. It was great to have wifi too. Nicole even met us at the Supratours bus station when we arrived, we did not expect this & this was so welcome after the hassle of Marrakech medina touts & taxi drivers!
I would definitely return to this riad & will recommend to my friends.
