“Excellent Riad”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 September 2013 via mobile

We had an excellent stay last week. The best sea views, friendly, helpful staff and the best dinner we had in Morrocco. We would also recommend the hammam and massage! It was fantastic!
The location is also excellent, being right in the centre and within easy walking distance of the beach. Essaouira is a quiet, relaxing place to stay after busy Marrakech and the beach is wonderful.

My husband and I spent three nights in May with our toddler, our dear friends and their toddler. Ask for one of the ocean view rooms. The riad is lovely, among the nicest we have stayed anywhere in Morocco. The owners are top-notch and the staff are exceptional. We loved our stay and will be back as soon as we can! Although I do not recommend staying in a riad with a two year old, we managed just fine. The hamman is a must!

Room Tip: Ask for ocean view

As others have commented the owners and staff are very welcoming,friendly and informative about places to eat etc. The riad has been beautifully restored with no expense spared and it was indeed a lovely place to wind down and relax after our drive round Morocco. The room was spacious and very comfortable,although the provision of a small fridge in the room would have made it just perfect.
The shower was excellent and the toiletries exquisite, and expensive!. We had a tantalising view of the sea through the doorway of the opposite rooms when the doors were left open but we didn't book one ourselves as we are already saving for another holiday later this year.The breakfasts on the terrace, complete with sea views, were just amazing; ham and cheese, fresh orange plus the usual Moroccan breads and jams and staff will even cook you a delicious omelette if requested, plus tea and coffee as required. All of this beautifully served by the staff. We were only there for two nights so unfortunately didn't have time to try the massage treatment rooms which looked lovely. It is only a short walk to the main shopping area and restaurants. Essaouiria is well worth a visit and is just over an hours drive from Marrakech. Watch out for speed limits on the roads, the traffic police are very active in this area! It will be our first stop on our next visit to Morocco when we hope to explore more of the coast and the Southern regions. Naturally we will be staying at Perle D'eau.

After 4 hectic days in Marrakech, we decided we needed a break and to wind down. The owners of the Perle couldn't have been more helpful - they arranged a car to pick us up, drive us across Morocco and to take us as close to the Riad as possible. From the moment we arrived they were helpful with suggestions of places to go and to eat, without being overbearing.

Breakfast on the rooftop terrace overlooking the Atlantic was delightful, and the rooms were spacious and airy. Our only regret was not booking the room with the sea views.

Essaouria is a very different experience than Marrakech, and the Perle was the perfect place to experience it from.

We very much enjoyed our stay. The owner was very friendly and helpful. It is the owners home and the view from the bedroom overlooking the sea is stunning. Had breakfast on the roof terraces every morning. The Raid is just off a main shopping street and the owner will give you tips on the places to buy from and eat (or you can eat with the owners)

Room Tip: It may be more expensive but the view from the bedrooms over looking the sea is fantastic

- I did spend 2 nights at the Riad Perle d'Eau located in the harbor town Essaouira. The very nice suite had the most wonderful view to the Pacific Ocean, and I could literary sit there for hours and just watch the ebb and tides, and the waves attacking the cliffs.
The owners & staff was very nice and helpful.
This is one of the few places I have stayed I just KNOW I want to return to.
EXCELLENT!

Room Tip: - The ones facing the sea is stunning!

4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 April 2013

We stayed in the riad for 3 nights. We had rooms with full view to the sea, absolutely stunning. The rooms are decorated with care, are very clean and comfortable.
The owners are helpful, polite and interested in their clients. They gave us great suggestions for dinner / lunch restaurants - places we probably would not have found ourselves (Caravane cafe was the best experience); we felt the owners have a good insight into the attractions, restaurants, sights of the area.
They can organise camel rides etc on request for a correct price.
The weather was bad so unfortunately we had our breakfast indoors - the terrace is perfect for a sunny breakfast. Breakfast was plenty, sugary and salty things, fresh juice - some fresh fruit would be nice.
Staff was very friendly.
The riad is tucked away in a small side street right in the medina, facing the sea. Perfect location to discover the village. There are no cars in the medina, so arriving at the ramparts a porter will take all your luggage to the riad.
Highly recommended.

There are safes is the rooms. Children welcome.
This is not a 'hotel', but a more a 'home from home'.

Room Tip: Choose a room facing the sea. Views are stunning. Back rooms face the opposite building and are dark...
