We stayed in Essaouira for 5 nights at Riad Malaika and we loved it! Sylvie and Pier Mark made us extremely welcome and Hakim treated us like royalty! My family have never stayed anywhere so welcoming and beautiful before and we all highly recommend it to you!!

That Riad is a good place to stay in Essaouira. Centrally located, with very nice and authentic rooms. Everything is very new as the Riad opened recently. The staff haven't been such friendly as we were used to from other Riads.

Spent one week here in the top floor suite during the Gnaua festival when Essaouira was heaving with visitors. The Malaika was cool, calm and a pleasant retreat from the heat and the crowds of the medina, just at the end of the alley, two minutes away from all the action. There are glitzier places to stay in Essaouira and...

Our group was age 13 to 79 and everyone delighted in the decor, location, comfort and especially the staff, all of who went out of their way and were happy to do so. Riad Malaika made our stay in Essaouira a perfectly wonderful memory.

Lovely, well put together place right in the centre of Essouria. Friendly staff and lovely accommodation. A little on the noisy side but really cool seating area. Great base for exploring Essouria.

I stayed in Riad Malaika for 5 nights in mid May 2010. We picked this Riad because of the wonderful reviews on Trip Advisor and we weren’t disappointed. We were made to feel at home from the outset and were welcomed with refreshing mint tea and oranges sprinkled with cinnamon. The whole Riad is beautifully decorated, there is great attention...

A beautifully and authetically restored Riad nested in a quiet street of the busy Medina in the beautiful town of Essaouira. We stayed in a recently renovated suite with windows opening on a big roof terrace.The room was very comfortable and the decoration was done with much taste with a classical moroccan style. I Loved the added bonus of having...
