Sue was very helpful with where to go and what to see and the hostel is lovely.
An absolutely beautiful riad. Perfect for a visitor who wants to experience the genuine culture and community of the town, due to its central location. The town has a lot to explore. The guesthouse has a beautiful roof terrace and sun room at the top for catching the rays and enjoying the landscape views. We enjoyed the atmosphere, which has been truly considered to the highest level, with the central atrium left lit at night, mint tea available at request and lovely and friendly staff.

We were couple looking to spend few romantic days in affordable comfort home-like place in Essauira with nice view from terrasse on sea. This place met all our needs. Everything was perfect. The breakfast was bit simple, but all right. Recommended
This hotel is the best. We've enjoyed our stay and loved all the activities we've booked via Sue (owner). We took cooking lessons, went horseriding and went to a hammam. The staff is great and took good care of us. Next time we will visit Lunetoile again!
We liked this Riad, the only thing is that it says it has Wi-Fi but it doesn't work, otherwise all good.
My friend and I absolutely loved our stay at Riad Lunetoile. We had a double room with a shared bathroom and our room was stunning. We were able to eat breakfast on the terrace in the mornings overlooking the coast. The staff are welcoming and very helpful. Sue gave great tips on where to eat etc. This was by far the best accommodation we stayed at during our short Morocco tour.
The place was great the roof top was amazing! Just slightly disappointed with the breakfast it was only really some croissants and bread with drinks. Some fruit or eggs were really needed
Long story short, the messed up our reservations, didnt have a record of our names at all, then sent us to 3 different hotels which were all fully booked until we finally came to one that wasnt, on the bussiest street in Essouria. THEN, the last day the lady at reception conveniently forgot to mention what time we needed to check out and was going to charge us an additional half day fee because our bags were still in the room. NOT IMPRESSED AT ALL!!!

The riad is beautiful. Girls who work there were great and the owner Sue gave us all the information that we needed for a great stay in Essaouira. We were leaving early in the morning and they prepared breakfast for us which was really nice. Thank You for everything. This is a perfect stay if you're going to Essaouira.
Superb hostel in the Essaouira medina! Beautifully decorated and spotlessly clean. The owner makes sure to meet every guest to give a wealth of information about the city. Her tips are excellent! Highly recommended!
A lovely Riad in Essaouira. Owner Sue takes the time to meet each of her guests and is full of tips for all budgets - she clearly loves the town and she wants you to too - we ate well, didn't get lost, and she organised a hammam for us too. Little touches like welcoming biscuits, dates and almonds in the room and bowls of oranges really completed the experience. Staff were friendly and helpful. Breakfast on the roof terrace was great. Whole heartedly recommended.
It is à really beauttiful hostel perfect for families, it is right in thé heart of thé médina. I went with m'y Wife and her parents just for 1 night and thé staff there Kept asking if we were married and if they could see our marriage papers, this made us feel a little uncomfortable. Other than that is was a beautiful stay.
Set in the heart of the medina the riad was charming and beautifully renovated/decorated. We booked 3 of the 5 rooms and pretty much had the whole building to ourselves - including the lovely rooftop sun terrace, and quirky little reading room with views out over the sea. Sue, Latifa and the rest of the staff made us feel really welcome and Sue gave us some great tips for places to eat and drink. We liked it so much we extended our stay!
Best service we've ever had in a hostel! The owner meets and greets each guest personally and gives you 10 times better insight about what and where to do in Essaouira than any Lonely Planet book could. And the atmosphere - you can feel and see how every detail is exactly as it should be. Just brilliant! Keep up the great work, Sue and Co!
we had a great stay in this characterfull riad. Good breakfast, nice roof terrace and serre

This bed and breakfast was a little slice of heaven! The ladies of Lunetoile are beyond accommodating and very friendly, the rooms are gorgeous, the rooftop patio has lots of sun and a great view (there is even a little sheltered area if you need refuge on a windy day), and the breakfast is lovely. I highly recommend staying here if you are passing through Essaouira!
The best hostel I've ever stayed. The room was superb and the roof terrace was a top place to relax enjoy your breakfast. The staff was so friendly and lovely too. They offer you a map of the city with extremely well selected recommendations of the places to visit. A gem!
This is a wonderful guesthouse / Riad in the medina of Essaouira. The Riad has a great terrace and provide a fantastic breakfast. The rooms and facilities are excellent (comfiest bed I've had for ages!) and the staff are fantastic and informative. Location is als great for pretty much whatever it is you're in town for. Can't recommend this Riad highly enough, enjoy!
Absolutely lovely. Sue and her team of girls are very very hospitable and keep a lovely Riad which has some very pretty rooms and a su deck for use through the day. We came for 2 nights and stayed for 4. Essaouira is magic and with good weather nd good food one can easily spend a week especially staying at the Lunetoile. Sue is great with her recommendations, and is easily accessible through emails and her team will help out ASAP. Her recommendation of restaurants downs to what to eat wer fab!
