This was my first trip to Morocco with friends and it was made all the better by the staff and accommodation at the hotel. We spent 5 nights here out of a 7 day trip. The location was perfect & like with many accommodations in Morocco, the entrance is deceptive of the beauty that lies behind! The rooms were spacious...

The decor is dreamy, the staff is gracious and lovely, the location in the medina is perfect, the restaurant is very, very good. We were there off-season, but the breakfast set-up is very basic-- I think that's the only negative thing I could say about this hotel. We stayed in a Portuguese suite, which was really spacious and cosy at...

We have just spent three nights here as part of a three center holiday in Morocco. If you were not shown where the hotel is you would never find it. With just a simple blue door in a high white wall and no name sign it hides conveniently just inside the Medina. It is a total contrast inside to what...

We were very impressed after entering the Lobby door to see the large beautiful lobby and garden leisure and dining area. This riad has all the ammenities, wonderful service, great dining, and very well appointed rooms. Just outsjde is the really unique medina with very interesting souks.and ancient and very active harbor. We very highly recommend this affordable luxury hotel.

This is a lovely hotel/riad in a great location in Essaouira. The staff a friendly and incredibly helpful. The price to stay is very reasonable and the food is wonderful. They have a mix of western cuisine as well as traditional that taste beautiful. I really enjoyed my time at this hotel.

This was a former palace renovated to a Riad. You expect a lot from Relais & Chateau, and this did not disappoint. Spacious room with sitting area and large bathroom.
