Nicole greeted us at the bus station and drove us to the Riad, leading us through the refreshingly hassle-free and spacious streets of Essaouira which was a welcome break from the bustling and exhausting Marrakech Souks. Baladin is tucked away down a side street and is bright, clean and beautifully decorated.
We had the honeymoon suite which was spacious and airy, with a four poster bed and a bath in the corner of the room. We always returned to the room completely clean and organised. Breakfast is promptly served on the spacious and comfy terrace by helpful staff, offering a range of choices and eggs cooked to your preference. On our last night we reserved the Jacuzzi in the courtyard; the night guard lit candles and drew the curtains and it was the perfect way to end our stay.
Nicole was so kind during our stay; one afternoon she drove us to a secluded beach with a small restaurant that only a local would know about. She then ferried us to a plush spa hotel, where we had private use of all their facilities, and even booked us a taxi back. While this Riad is clearly an idyllic retreat within a picturesque city, its greatest success its attentive manager.
