As you arrive and walk up the backstreet you come to this smart wooden door. As you go through the door you will be amazed at the contrast. It seems that no expense has been spared in taking a pile of rubble into a beautiful riad.

The owners, Giselle and Ernest both Swiss, spent 4 years creating a magnificent riad facing the sea wall of the Atlantic. We enjoyed breakfast on the roof terrace with the Atlantic sea waves crashing on the rocks below.

Ernest made recommendations each evening at which restaurant we should eat at, each was excellent.

Room Tip: All rooms are good, the one facing the sea must be the best but costs a bit more.

This could be the best riad in the medina of Essaouira. The owners, both Swiss, gutted an old residence and created a magnificent riad facing the sea wall of the Atlantic. As others have written, everything about this riad is magnificent. We especially enjoyed relaxing on the rooftop terrace soaking up the sun, watching the waves crash into the offshore rocks, and listening to the sound of the ocean. What a wonderful way to spend our last days in Morocco.

The mayhem of the inner walls of Essaouira does not prepare you for what is behind one single door, absolutely lovely rooms particularly if you stay in the ones with a view of the Atlantic. Giselle and Ernest are very helpful, breakfasts adequate and plentiful but could just mix them up a bit with more variety. The hammam here is essential as if you have never had one please please try and you will feel a new person, had one together and it was a lovely experience.
Suggested restaurants provided by the owners were very good particularly the Le Sirocco, Restaurant d'Orient et d'Ailleurs (host Lawrence) and the very interesting Caravane Cafe (this is an excellent restaurant) but bookings are essential. All good value with the Caravane due to its eclectic worthwhile menu a little more expensive. Riad Perle is extra special and the owners have completed a wonderful renovation, lovely rooftop area but the views are worth the cost alone. Simply enjoy.

Room Tip: Worth the Atlantic Ocean rooms and the hammam is a very special treat with this lovely riad.

I can only repeat what the other contributors have said. If you are staying in Essaouira Perle d’Eau is THE place to stay. Simply wonderful, great hosts where nothing is too much trouble and views to die for. Spend a bit more and get a room with a sea view, fantastic. The Riad is situated in the Medina and close to all you will want to see. Take a walk on the beach but be careful of the tide you will probably be on your own for miles. We enjoyed it so much we will be returning next year, can't wait.

Room Tip: Sea view rooms are stunning.

Loved this place! It is a gem. Spend the extra and get the ocean view room. We did! The owners are a delightful kind Swiss couple. They go the extra mile. The rooms and bathroom are huge!
They surprised us with roses and fresh fruit, so nice! Breakfast on the terrace. It was like being on our honeymoon :)

Room Tip: Get the ocean room!
