A nice, calm Riad in a central Location, just a few minutes to walk to the Sea. We spent three Nights in a Double Room and were totally happy with it. Great Price. I'll definitely recommend it!

Staff was excellent. Really friendly And helpful. The room was clean and secure. The roof top terrace was lacking and the shower wasn't great but other than that it was nice stay. Location is right off the Main Street, really easy to find.

Really nice place to stay. Thanks!


There was no sea view as stated on the website. First floor had no warm water and upper floors had no water at all. There was a smell in the whole building. We were leaving early in the morning before breakfast starts, the reception guy offered that he will take care of that for us and organize some food to go but he never did anything about it. Overall disappointing although comfortable bed, separate bathroom and room quite spacious.


Very nice hostel with good breakfast!

I spent a few beautiful days with my girlfriend in Riad Sidi Magdoul and Essaouira. The Riad was the most excellent place to stay, nice location yet very tranquil. Must have been some of the best days in my life (mostly because of my girlfriend whom I love very much :D)


In January nights are quite cold, hostel with no heating. The worst thing that there was no hot water, no cool water, but only cold, freezing water. Very good breakfast.


My wife drank all the Dom Perignon from the Minibar while I was in the jaccuzi. Afterwards I put Perrier in the Dom P. bottles, my wife doesn't notice when she's that wasted. Then our son got arrested in Marrakech for biting a snake so we had to leave suddenly and I forgot to tell the hotel staff about the Perrier in the Dom P bottles. The hotel only charged me the Perrier and left the Dom Perignon for the next guests but they understood. I'm still waiting for the right invoice


Nice riad in a good location
