“A beautiful Riad in the heart of Essaouira”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 April 2012

Riad Thais is a very charming and newly refurbished Riad in the heart of Essaouira. It is a gourgeous Riad with lovely furnitures. Location is great, it is situated only a few minutes walking from the beach and main bars and restaurants.The rooms are very clean and spacious. There is also a lovely hammam available for guests only. From the terrace the view of the city is beautiful. The staff is very helpful and friendly. A lovely place to rewind in the heart of Essaouira. I really enjoyed my stay there and I really hope to go back to Ria Thais very soon!

i had a fantastic weekend in Riad Thais, i was just too short! The style of the riad is simple modern but with good taste maintaining the Moroccon feeling in the decoration, just beautiful. It has a nice terrace upstairs you can enjoy your delicious breakfast "á la marocaine" , which is excellent, natural and yummy. Each room is different, I chose the one with bath, it was just so romantic and comfortable for relaxing. The location is perfect, in the medina, you just have to go out the door and you have all the Moroccon shops, tasty food for good price, cafes, the scala, the beach is only 5 minutes walk far away. Nice service and for a very reasonable price. I am sure i will go back to the same Riad if I visit Essaouira next time

Simply the best!! Very recommendable. I travelled with a group of girlfriends and we felt like at home. The owner was careful enough to hear our needs and actually exceeded them. Breakfast in the morning, typical cous cous dinner upon demand...centrally located but quiet & cleaningness a plus!

The staff was incredibly helpful and attentive, very welcoming giving advice on shopping, restaurants and activities.
I toke the breakfast at the sunny terrace and was just excellent: fresh orange juice, pancakes made at home, mint tea anytime;
I take dinner there too and was delicious.
The riad was very clean and peaceful.
Sleep at riad thais was a very nice experience which I certainly recommend.

Room Tip: I stayed at room princess, romantic and cosy

After a bussy year working a break at the The Riad Thais was fabulous. Samira's breakfast very yammy. We spend a lot of time relaxing on the Sauna and reading on the sunny terrace. The house was just immaculate and very charmy.

Room Tip: Berber room have a nice view at the sweet Medina's street
