Excellent restaurant - Jun 14, 2019
We had a day trip to Essaouira. Didn't stay at the hotel but instead had lunch at the rooftop / top floor restaurant. The panoramic view is magnificent. My dad had sea bream and I had seafood pastilla. Both are delicious and reasonably priced. Complimentary bread and olive. You will be surprised to learn how little price differential there is between nice restaurants like this and those from the medina. This is our best meal so far in Morocco. Highly recommend.« less ...

Great position, very nice riad. - Jun 13, 2019
We stayed here for two nights. It is in an excellent position, right against the sea wall as others have mentioned, with beautiful views. We had a porter to carry our luggage to the riad as part of a group as it not accessible by car, being in the heart of the medina. You can walk everywhere, along all the little twisting laneways of the medina which is incredibly charming.We had a standard room, overlooking the laneway. Our room was large with a very generous bathroom. It is styled in a typically Moroccan way, fairly simple, but comfortable with a kingsize bed that was very comfortable. Perhaps not one of the most gorgeous places we stayed at in Morocco but perfectly fine. Our friends unfortunately were twin sharing and were very disgruntled to find a king size bed and a small cot like bed in their room which was unsuitable for an adult. They were unable to change their room but put in a bigger single bed. It still wasn't a great room, particularly as they couldn't get WIFI either.Breakfast was quite limited although the setting on the terrace was lovely, overlooking the sea. Staff were welcoming and warm, and organized a hammam for us close by. This was absolutely a superb experience - a scrub and then massage with pure argan products - bliss! We floated right back to the ryad then. I highly recommend you have one, we still talk about ours.To sum, a nice place. From what people say in their reviews, it sounds like the sea fronting rooms and suites are probably the really lovely accommodations but what we had was fine.« less ...
