“Excellent location, gorgeous riad, highly recommend it”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 August 2014

Great location, right next to the ocean wall and in the heart of the medina. The breakfast dining room has breathtaking views, along with an outdoor terrace, which offers stunning panoramic views of the ocean and of Essaouira medina. Very helpful staff at anytime, time, day or night, who made sure that we had everything we needed. Mustafa was great, as well as the ladies who helped us. Great service in the dining room as well. Breakfast was delicious, and they brought seconds of anything we wanted, as well as let us order omelets which were not on the traditional breakfast menu, all for free. We did not have the seaview room, but our window had a great view of the town and we could still hear the ocean waves. The room was gorgeous and beautifully decorated. It says it has air conditioned rooms, but it does not have a wall air conditioner. Its a small mobile ac/heater unit thats not worth turning it on. But the cool winds from the sea make up for it, and we did not need air conditioning in August. Essaouira is pretty cool at all hours, so it wasn't necessary at all. Great room, beautiful riad and we highly recommend it.

Room Tip: Any room is great, you don't have to have a seaview room to enjoy the sounds of the ocean or hav...

We discovered this riad whilst wandering the back streets of Essaouira, looking for somewhere interesting to have dinner. It is an absolute gem - beautiful traditional interior, which we saw whilst walking up to the top floor to the roof top restaurant and made us want to stay there next time we visit Essaouira. The view as you walk in the restaurant is genuinely breathtaking, with glass walls all the way around, stunning views of the Medina's rooftops on one side and the crashing waves on the other. Unexpected and incredibly lovely. The views alone would make this place worth a visit, but this was topped off by attentive, polite and hospitable service, and gorgeous food. Fresh bread, salads, and fish were cooked perfectly and elegantly presented. Would wholeheartedly recommend.

My room transported me to a fairy tale land of crashing ocean waves protected by a walled city!
Great food.....shopping... Views and a true experience of morocco.....the hotel itself invoked another time in history....don't let the 4 star rating deter you.....true...no room service or pool or gym etc....but if you want a unique experience don't miss riad mimouna

He had the chance to get into this hotel and took a breakfast in the morning on the roof terrace.
The experience was amazing to see this hotel for the internal decoration which respect marroccan style, friendlyness of the personel and terrace on the top.
We sow some rooms which are really with great sea views!
The breakfast was excellent served on the incredible roof terrace where wall glasses protect you from the wind but still allow you to see and incredible 3D view on the sea.
The place is not for backpackers, like we were :-) so it is not cheap, but it deserve it!!!
We have seen quite a few hotel/riad and it is defetely the top in Essauira expecially if you what to spend a real experience, if you care of respect of tradition, style and confort, not just for western organised tour masses and trash lux!
this place is a must in Essauira!

We booked a sea-view room and were upgraded to a suite. The room was very spacious and comfortable with floor to ceiling sliding windows which gave great views over the sea and part of the medina as well as cooling breezes. The dining room was spacious as was the outside deck area on the top floor.
The food choices were very good and the breakfast adequate. The only dining down side was the inability to purchase alcoholic drinks.

The view was perfect. You are right on the wall with the waves crashing beneath your window. The room was large with a nice seating area facing the floor to ceiling windows. A beautiful bathroom with shell shaped double sinks and a tub to soak in with an ample supply of hot water. The room and bath were very clean. Breakfast was hearty and very good, although once served, staff was hard to find to get a second cup of coffee, water, etc. WiFi was easy to connect.

So windy that it was impossible to leave the windows open at night - wind whistled through the older windows which did not shut tightly. This may just be a product of the time of year that we were there - first couple days of May.
