If you're looking for a clean and cosy place in Essaouira, that's it. I arrived at 9pm and was a little scared to walk into medina alone in dark remembering my previous experiences in Marrakech and Fes, I called them and requested someone to accompany me but my phone battery died. Luckily I had the medina map they sent me before. Essaouira medina is quite small and well designed, so it took me only five minutes to get to the riad from Bab Sbaa. Anni and Pascal were at the door welcoming me. They offered tea and we had a quick chat since they don't speak English and I have limited French. My room's cleanliness was well beyond Moroccan standards. There was hot water as much as I wanted. I woke up with seagulls singing. Breakfast consisted of fresh orange juice, homemade yoghurt, fresh fruits, croissant, bread, butter and jam which was more than you can eat. Internet access was a little slow in the rooms but ok. Owners and helping lady were very warm and always smiling.
