    A lovely place to stay. Just what you’d expect from a Riad. Our room was cool and calm with high ceilings and a lovely four post bed. The reception/communal area was tranquil with a bubbling fountain. Breakfast was served on the Terrance with rooftop views over Essaouira. The perfect stay.

    The Riad is great, the location is good, staff is fantastic, specially Fatma. When you walk in you feel like you are transported to a different place, it’s quiet, peaceful and well decorated. The “tradicional “ Marocan breakfast on the terrace is marvellous. Would higher recommend and would stay again.

    Lovely Essauoira

    Staff was very helpful. Able to leave luggage on final day while went shopping. Rooftop breakfast was lovely. Room spacious and clean. No A.C., but coastal breeze kept room cool, even in July.

    Die Unterkunft liegt sehr zentral an der Medina. Das Frühstück ear wirklich sehr lecker, es gab Baguette mit Frischköse und Marmelade, sowohl als auch regionale Köstlichkeiten. Das Personal ist sehr freundlich und zuvorkommend. Auch unser Problem mit der Dusche wurde innerhalb von ein paar Stunden gelöst als wir in der Stadt unterwegs waren. Natürlich darf man alles nicht an den deutschen Standards messen (Wassertemperatur und -druck waren etwas gewöhnungsbedürftig), aber rund um war es ein wunderschöner Aufenthalt in diesem Riad. Und ein besonderes Extra ist natürlich die wunderschöne Dachterasse mit Bar :) Im nächsten Urlaub werden wir auf jeden Fall hier nochmal schlafen

    Excellent rapport qualité prix.

    Joli riad décoré simplement mais avec beaucoup de goût. Situé dans la médina mais avec accès facile. Grande terrasse pour petit-dejeuner avec belle vue panoramique dont mer. Grande chambre avec lits confortables. Enfin équipe très sympathique et aux petits soins pour répondre aux besoins des clients.

    Après les promenades dans la médina, sous le soleil ardent de février le riad « Les Terrasses d’Essaouira » est une oasis de paix et de fraîcheur . Il y a des bouquins, des fauteuils et des canapés, et le chant des oiseaux au réveil . Les chambres sont confortables, décorées avec goût et d’une propreté rigoureuse. Très bon accueil . Le petit déjeuner, sur le toit-terrasse, frôlerait la perfection avec quelques fraises du marché et des m’smen cuits sur place. Raja veille à notre bien-être et personnifie bien le sens de l’hospitalité marocaine avec amabilité et délicatesse. Nous aurions beaucoup apprécié d’avoir la possibilité en fin de journée de pouvoir boire un verre sur le toit terrasse, avec quelques « tapas » (ou genre mezze) c’eût été parfait, avant d’aller dîner à l’extérieur. Bien prévoir de régler en devises Merci à Sadio, Marie, Raja et Saadia , nous reviendrons In Shaa Allah
