Reviewed 7 March 2017

We were self-driving around Morocco and were recommended this Riad less than ten minutes self-drive from Essaouira. It proved the perfect place to unwind and from which to sally into the nearby town where parking was simple. Leah and Rashid in their different ways both managed to make us feel entirely relaxed as well as, evidently, the several other families...

We had originally booked the Red Room for three nights, but ended up staying four nights because we were so comfortable. The rooms of this cosy Riad are all individually styled, giving a unique flavour to one's stay, and the buildings and grounds are designed/landscaped for style and comfort. The staff is exceptionally friendly and kind - and Leah and...

Brilliantly run extended family style Riad, down a dubious looking dirt Road, a beautiful oasis of calm and serenity. Fresh food available virtually all day in this 6 bedroomed home. Each room has a open fire if morrocan nights are cold. A free Hamman, heated pool and total relaxation made my stay rejuvenating particularly after a superb massage given by...

Travelling to Baoussala for the third time in three years, we were afraid we would miss the excitement of discovering a new place. Our anxiety was very short lived as Dominique and her wonderful team ensorcelled us again with their customary charm and hospitality. Rooms were well appointed, food/menu was customizable and delicious, and the various encounters+activities were wonderful. Baoussala...
