Staff doesnt speak any english. There was no one in the hotel when we arrived, even though we came at exact time i chose when booking. There was no staff during most of the day and night. They asked us what time we would like breakfast saying thats its being served from 8am so we agreed on 8:30. Woke up early but there was no sign of staff until 9am and breakfast was only ready at 9:30. We came to Morocco for 3 days so every hour was precious otherwise it would be ok.

We had a wonderful stay at the Riad. We booked a room for 3 nights. Fatima, one of the Riad staffs picked us up from the bus station and led us to the Riad. She was very friendly and helpful, recommended us some restaurants and what we could do in the evening. The room itself was like a palace compared to the price. The breakfast was included and very delicious. The riad has a roof terasse where you can chill and enjoy the view to the ocean.


Wir waren 3 Tage über Silvester in Essaouira und hatten einen sehr schönen Aufenthalt im Lunetoile. Die Zimmer sind sehr groß und die Möbel mit ganz viel Liebe ausgesucht. Es ist unmöglich sich hier nicht sofort gemütlich zu fühlen. Fatima ist sehr nett und hilfsbereit, empfielt einem gerne Restaurants oder hilft sonst irgendwie aus. Das Frühstück war ebenfalls fabelhaft. Doch am besten ist fast die Aussicht von der Dachterasse aufs Meer.


We were only due to stay at Riad Lunetoile for two nights and we extended our stay for another two evenings. The Riad is beautiful and clean and the location is great. The staff are especially helpful and made a great breakfast every morning. Many thanks to Sue for our amazing stay and your brilliant knowledge of the local area. Highly recommend this Riad.

What a wonderful comment, thank you! So glad you enjoyed it!! We loved having you stay...thanks ! Sue


Latifa and Sue were very helpful and welcoming! The breakfast on the terrace was lovely and our room was very spacious and clean. In our opinion, the riad's ambiance provides an exoticized "orient" experience of Morocco.

Thank YOU!! Delightful guests who are happy, make us over-the-moon!! Thank you for your wonderful review...and come back soon, please? Still so much more to see and do...Sue and all the girls at Lunetoile.


Kabir was lovely when she let us in and we managed to communicate quite well despite the language barrier. The whole Riad was very fresh, open and colourful which made it so nice to come back to after being out in the sun. She did everything to make our stay comfortable and we enjoyed the breakfast. We would highly recommend this Riad to other travellers.
