Delightful stay. Jean was extremely generous, helpful and the experience was absolutely perfect.
The rest of the team was also really nice.
very cosy atmosphere, and a particular attention to details has been brought.

Situated within the medina walls, Jean's riad proved to be a welcome retreat from the hussle and bustle of Essaouira life. From the warm welcome including a cooling beverage through to the sublime comforting pillows everything leant itself to pure comfort and relaxation. If visiting Essaouira, Riad Chabanate is a must.

Room Tip: Tell Jean your preference and he will give you his best.

We just returned from 4 nights at Riad Chbanate. I'm pretty sure this is the best place I've ever stayed. Friendly staff and owners, beautiful food and wine, stunning room (especially the bath!) and an amazing and peaceful building.

Oh, and all the mint tea you can drink, for free!

We couldn't have been made to feel more welcome and would recommend it to anyone looking for a romantic break in lovely Essaouira.

We stayed for two nights at Riad Chbanate and had a really great experience. The hotel is clean and well-kept. The rooms are very spacious and all have big tubs you can soak in. It's located on a quiet street, but still pretty close to the main sightseeing areas (though this isn't a big concern in Essaouira - the town is a 15-minute walk end to end). It's pretty small (8 rooms), so it doesn't have some of the amenities of larger hotels (e.g., pool, fitness center), but it does have a hot tub.

But the best thing is the staff, who are friendly and genuinely looking to help. Their restaurant recommendations were right on, which was not the case for some other places we stayed. Also, we were three people scheduled to stay in one room, and they gave us a second room for free because one was free so that we'd be more comfortable.

Prices were quite reasonable. Highly recommended.

Room Tip: Mauresque room is on the top (fourth) floor, which is a bit of hike, but the plus side is it's very quiet (though none of the rooms are loud, really). It has a huge bathroom area.

We just back from a lovely romantic stay at road chbanate! Everything was lovely, the room was beautiful, the courtyard and the rooftop was also very nice, and staff were super helpful and made our stay extra nice. The location was also perfect, with a short walk to everything around, but still in a quiet street. Would absolutely recommend this Riad!
