Stunning location - Feb 21, 2020
Riad Mimouna is on the north edge of the medina, with the sea lapping up against the retaining wall. I paid extra for a sea view and was so pleased I did - spectacular. Like so many riads in medinas in Morocco, the exterior looks rough but the interior, particularly the reception area is beautiful. If I was being really picky the breakfast only comprised of breads, a boiled egg and cake, which while being unadventurous is typical of Moroccan hotel breakfasts but for the quality of hotel I might have expected something a little more imaginative. Excellent wi-fi and firm but comfortable beds. I'd stay again.« less

Spectacular view shame about the bathroom - Feb 18, 2020
The room looked out onto the ocean - the Riad is in a great location for views although if you were girls alone I would think about choosing somewhere less deep into the medina. What let it down was the mediocre breakfast and the terrible bathroom that hadn’t been updated in years. Staff were nice though and breakfast good if you are not worried about carbs!« less

Spectacular views from room - Jan 20, 2020
We enjoyed our short stay here and the lady at the front desk was very amiable. Our second floor room had a view that would takes your breath away and coming back to that every day made up for the rather indifferent breakfast.About five minutes walk away is the most wonderful restaurant which we strongly recommend and certainly added to the enjoyment of our experience of Essaouira, Les Alizes Mogador.Overall a pleasant stay at the hotel.« less

Liked it in the end - Dec 23, 2019
I thought Riads were small places , like the wonderful Riad Hikaya in Marrakesh. This is a big place with lots of rooms. The first room we were offered(109) was very small and after the 4 days in the Hikaya in Marrakesh not at all comparable. They were repainting and this was a very strong smell. The view over the sea was very spectacular. After much tooing and froing we got moved to room 301 which is enormous and I think the source for room pictures. An even better view of the ocean and a double sink. At this end of the hotel we could hardly smell the paint. We were happy here. Well located Essaouira is only small and we could walk everywhere, but don't believe the tales of the place being more laid back than say Marrakesh we got constantly hassled and the shop/restaurant owners remembered us day after day and became more abusive. But that's not this hotls fault, all in all we were happy here« less

lovely place to stay - Dec 5, 2019
we stay this raid which very good. the room was out this world next the sea. we left window open at night it so calming to hear waves. we had best sleep ever. the hotel is very old and love history feeling of building. the break was very good. fresh orange juice, fresh bread ,eggs , coffee etc and view of sea in morning wow. WiFi is very good and love movie channel they had great movies. to find place is straight forward if taxi drop outside of Marrakesh gate in old medina market. it 900 meter from that gate. the restaurant is bit pricey but worth it. lovely food and always hot. worth the money. p.s if your booking did not include city tax then have have pay before you leave the hotel. the people in raid very nice.« less
