This is a lovely riad with nicely decorated rooms, a very comfy bed, tasty breakfasts and extremely helpful and welcoming staff and owner, for whom nothing was too much trouble.
As well as arranging for a baggiste to meet us on our arrival by bus from Marrakech (which saved us hassle/negotiarion), Jean Gabriel organised for us to get good value argan oil to take home (much cheaper than what we saw in the shops) and even walked us to the pick up point on departure day to make sure the car arrived on time to bring us to the airport.
There are a number of places in the riad to hang out to read a book, enjoy a glass of wine, or chat to other guests - a cosy library, a rooftop lounging area and a large room with sofas and a table at which dinner may be served. This made it easy to meet and chat to other guests if we wanted to - meeting new people when on holiday is something we both enjoy.
In contast to one of the reviews below we found the fire was lit every evening - if it had not been I'm sure one of the staff would have lit it for us on request.
I would thoroughly recommend this riad to anyone visiting Essaouira.
