Riad Jade Mogador
Ranked #43 of 178 Essaouira B&B and Inns
Reviewed 3 October 2013 via mobile

We came to this hotel after traveling for three weeks in Morocco and seeing many hotels, this was the best one! We stayed there for five nights and enjoyed every one of them.
The place is run by amazing staff who let us feel at home from the very first moment, they even let us use their kitchen as much as we wanted.

It was a pleasure to stay at Riad Jade Mogador, tucked away on a narrow street in the heart of Essaouria's busy, vibrant medina. You step out the front door into the souks and winding streets of the old city. The staff is friendly and extremely pleasant and helpful. We arrived at 2 a.m. and, even after waking up the young woman who runs the riad, were greeted with smiles and a warm welcome. Our room was pure Morocco with beige plaster walls and colorful textiles and stained glass in the windows. Comfortable, affordable and authentic. I'm sure there are five-star luxury hotels outside the medina that might be more familar to western visitors, but I can't reccomend the Jade Mogador enough. You may feel like you'll never find your way back at first when you venture out, but we got the hang of navigating the city maze after a while. Be sure to have your morning coffee up on the roof top for a view of the city and the ocean crashing upon rocks.

Room Tip: We stayed on the third floor with windows that opened out onto the Rue Annasar below. There's no...

We had a great stay in this riad. We have learnt that you never try and find a riad yourself but you trust the trolley men and pay 20Mad as they know the location of every riad in the medina. We found the location of this riad to be very good and within walking distance of everywhere you want to go. Medinas quieten at night so noise shouldn’t be a problem and we slept very well. This riad is basic but very clean and friendly and has a great room upstairs to chill out with a glass of Moroccan wine and has panoramic views from the roof top. Throughout the riad there are displays of very old Moroccan artefacts and objects. On our visit we had two rooms where one of the showers was luke warm and the other perfect so it is best to check the shower temperature before settling on a room.
The breakfast is good, rooms comfortable and wi-fi from the breakfast area. The price is the best thing and makes this riad very affordable for a longer stay in the great beachside town of Essaouira. Go to the port about 5pm for great light for photography and catch the hustle and bustle of the fishing boats and look back to the light shining on the town. You won’t be disappointed. My next buzz will be from…….

Room Tip: Check water is hot in the shower.

Nice place to unwind from the city, a terrace with nice views (it will be renovated), nice hearty breakfast and a family athmosphere for this centrally located riad..do not expect luxury, but the riad is very clean and cozy. Our room was facing the street and it was a bit noisy. Wonderful mint tea is served any time of the day and can also be enjoyed on the terrace. When we left I felt like I left the house of some friends..

Room Tip: Ask for a room not facing the street

We would highly recommend this lovely guest house. It is a calm retreat from the throng of the town. The family that run the place are very friendly and helpful and the atmosphere is very relaxed. Near to the sea wall - you fall asleep to the sound of the wind and the waves. The breakfasts are great too.

We had a wonderful stay at this riad - Khadija and her husband were wonderful hosts and took great care of us during our stay. They put a lot of thought into the design of the riad, which has a very cozy feel. The breakfasts put out for us each morning were superb. The riad location was also excellent, and the daily rates were a bargain.
