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.

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.

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.

We just LOVED this riad! We nearly didn't book it because of a bad recommendation found online. Really, we're so happy we didn't care about this opinion, we would have missed out big time. We immediately felt at home at this place with lots of love for details and beautiful rooms. Sue welcomed us with cold mint tea and took the time to give personal recommendations for restaurants etc. Also the staff was very courteous and friendly. Location is also top, very central but calm. JUST PERFECT!!

Simply put this Riad felt like a home to us in Essaouira. We planned to be there for 3 nights and ended up staying there for the rest of our holiday in Morocco. Breakfast in the sun on the roof terrace, good recommendations for the other meals and very nice and helpful staff (thank you Kabira)! Mind that Essaouira can be cold at nights so it's a bit chilly in the rooms even with the heater on. Anyhow lovely experience!

The riad was excellent. Very beautifully decorated and clean. The staff were lovely and helpful. The breakfast was very tasty and the terrace is a great place to relax and have drinks, since most of the bars close early enough in the town. The riad is located on one of the main medina streets.The medina is quite small in Essaouira and easy enough to navigate. Overall we would highly recommend it.

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.

This is a really nice place to stay. The staff were very helpful and Susan the owner organised all our trips, cookery courses etc.

We were rather disappointed because rooms and all the space at the pictures looks great and the prices are rather high. We supposed really good quality. In reality our room turned out to be very humid with specific smell. It wasn't very bad but for sure shouldn't cost 50€ per night. Breakfast was OK, but terrace where we ate was neglected probably because of low season.

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

Hiiii...thank you so much for your visit, and for your lovely review. Are our breakfasts a little simple? Yes, they are Continental, with a few added extras... Personally, I love our breakfasts...thankfully so do most of our guests. But, of course, I appreciate your comment and am always interested to see ways to improve....thank you so very much...and hope your continued LONG vacation goes smoothly. Sue

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.
