Reviewed 8 August 2012

We got a little confused finding this place - it's quite tucked away - but once we did, it couldn't have been nicer. The staff were really friendly and made us tea straight away, they also helped us arrange to have henna tattoos at a nearby salon, and to go for camel rides on the beach.
The rooms were beautiful, and we had our own bathroom which we hadn't expected. Just everything about the place was lovely.

We stayed 2 nights at the end of December and loved everyminute of it. The riad has a lot of atmosphere with local furniture and decoration, the staff was friendly, breakfast was excellent and location fantastic. Maybe even too much !!! in the sense that it is not easy to find it the first time. It is right in the center of the Medina in a quite and little road. I suggest to park just outside the Wall ( on the big square, opposite the seaside ) and call the Riad. Or from the square/parking : facing Bab ( porta ) Marrakech, 200 mtrs on your right there is a smaller Bab ( porta ) only for pedestrians or bikes. Enter it and turn immediately left, walk along the wall and first small alley on right. Keep going until you find it.
Inshallah !!!

This was the nicest place we stayed in Morocco. Beautiful rooms, traditionally decorated. Great breakfast. Easy to get to from your car, because it is close to the back wall of the medina. But it is a bit of a walk to get to the beach, but really worth it! Loved it, loved it!

This is a riad hidden away in the walls of the medina. The service from the local staff was excellent however the owners were showing around buyers for the riad and were not hospitable as they should have been. This didn't mirror their marketing detail. The riad is in a tight alley within labrynthine network of other alleyways. Somewhat threatening and noisy, especially due to the gangs of locals and loud hammering of building works right next to the riad. Room was unusual with old traditional doors with bolt and padlock set-up? Heater provided in the room. Usual minimal hot water and hitting musty smells (certainly la maison du vent) from the adjoining bathroom/toilet although did have a B-Day. Not as eco, green and sustainable as made out to be in the marketing detail. Would have expected to have paid half the price for this experience. Didn't have best feeling here. The rooms all had Santa Claus teddies on each door though...lovely touch?

Spent two wonderful nights at La Maison Du Vent in Essaouira. The rooms are charming, the breakfast is delicious (and fresh) and the ladies who run the place are so sweet. The view from the roof top is spectacular - spend time up there and enjoy soak it in!
Bring your ear plugs though, the kids outside at night can be a bit noisy.

Located centrally in the medina, arrived to a warm reception with nice mint tea. The woman who runs the place was very helpful in recommending places to eat, visit etc. Breakfast delicious. Very charming rooms, beautiful decor, especially in the bathroom.
All round, a wonderful place, clean, friendly, helpful, welcoming.
Also has wifi.

Overall a good, relatively cheap riad, some street noise, filling of buckets fron the street tap, which will effect only some rooms, bed v. hard, good ensuite, but one morning no hot water for a while.
Staff very good, breakfast good if you like moroccan breakfasts. pancakes, butter, jam, white bread and plenty of good coffee or tea.
Roof terrace available for reading time or to escape from the bustle of the streets (which are much easier to walk down than those in the medina in Marrakech, less fumes and very few scooters and mopeds, but as kinobe24 said, broken drains mean a couple of back streets are best avoided, easily done)
