Just returned from a 4 night stay at the Riad Baladin with my girlfriend. Nicole was very welcoming and helpful and took the time to point out where to go, what to see, what to do/not to do.
We stayed in both the Rose and Grey room, both exactly the same layout but with different colours (Rose being the nicer one in our opinion). Rooms were nice and spacious, very comfy beds and lovely traditional moroccon bathrooms.
When in Essaouria, you should definitley book the Elizir restaurant - one of the best meals we had in the 3 weeks we were in Morocco (Lonely Planet 'top pick' too).
Essaouria in general was our favourite place in Morocco - kite surfing, horseriding, quad biking, relaxing, great food.
I'd happily recommend the Baladin to anyone visiting :)
