“A lovely riad !”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 August 2012

We had a wonderful stay here. Welcome drink, helpful staff, spacious and beautifully decorated rooms and scrumptious breakfast served on the rooftop terrace. A great time in a convenient and very central location. We will definitely come back and we will recommend "Les Terrasses d'Essaouira" to family and friends.

4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 August 2012

My partner and I only stayed here for one night whilst travelling around Morocco. Essaouira is absolutely lovely, nice and chilled - just like this lovely Riad.

We were greeeted with refreshments which was nice following a long coach journey. Our room was great, no complaints. Much bigger than expected and absolutely spotless. We had a big four poster bed and a large bathroom.

The roof terrace is a great place to chill and sunbathe with plenty of tables and chairs and loungers.

Would highly recommend!

The house was beautiful, traditional , light and very airy. The people who worked there were very polite and as helpful as they could possibility be although their English was only slightly better than our French which made things slightly difficult. The location was great-in a very central location right in the medina. I can't imagine a stay in the riad wouldn't be a least twice the price in any English town.

Lovely hotel in a convenient location to explore Essaouira.
Friendly and helpful staff with delightful breakfast provided.
The rooms and lounge/eating areas were imaginatively and attractively decorated.
The rooftop terrace was great for relaxing in the sun.
Would definitely recommend to friends and use again.

The good things about the Riad were the space in the rooms, the lovely clean and spacious bathroom and the location was central and quiet. However, there were no windows to the room and as the courtyard is glazed over, no natural light or ventilation. There were joss sticks burning when we arrived but when they burnt out there was quite a strong smell of damp. The bedding and all our clothes smelt of damp after a few days. The management seemed a bit indifferent, although the Moroccan staff were friendly and helpful. A bit mixed really. The tortoise on the terrasse was a surprise!

4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 September 2011

We stayed here for one night and wished we had stayed for longer.

The Riad is amazing. Completely different from any other we had seen. The building is particularly astonishing and the view from the top was really beautiful. We were shown to a number of rooms and each were individually decorated. We chose the green room as it had an external window. The room was very comfortable. The breakfast in the morning was the best we ate in any Riad, as the bread was so fresh.

The only less positive note is that the Riad did not feel as friendly as some others we stayed in. We arrived late and left quite early, but staff did little more than show us to our room.

However, we are glad we stayed here, however short the time.
