“Friendliness and Location”
Reviewed 2 November 2013

Very welcoming and engaging people. A tastefully decorated Riad in a great location (a quiet laneway) with very comfortable rooms and a lovely traditional evening meal. A wholesome breakfast on the roof top with a small view of the Atlantic. A high recommendation for this guest house. Excellent value.

I would definitely recommend this riad. It had friendly and helpful staff, a lovely roof terrace where great breakfasts were served. All in all a lovely riad located in the centre of the medina, 100yds from the ramparts. Superb location.

Room Tip: its a long way to the third floor to your bedroom so book one on the first floor if you have trouble...

The owner and the manager are great. They take care of the riad like it's their home. They took care of us like members of their own family. I recommend this place to anyone who wants a good location, great hospitality, and insider's touch on Essaouira from the owner. I look forward to our next stay.

We spent one night at this beautiful riad after a really bad experience at Dar L'Oussia.

What a great time we had. Clemente and Sara made sure that we felt like home.

This is a beautiful riad, clean an comfty. On top of that, the breakfast at the terrace was THE BEST we had in any riads in our three week gateway in that beautiful country.

Sarah and Clemente gave us a very good service and lots of tips and to do's in Essaouira.
The rooms are big and clean and even they made a fantastic local dinner for us.
For those who enjoy living different experiences... five stars for the breakfast at the rooftop!!
