Lovely riad. Great location! We loved the room, which was fantastic value for money we really enjoyed the included breakfast, which varied each morning and was very fresh.

The Riad was quite basic and unremarkable. Breakfast was excellent, and large. However, there were two things that made the stay less enjoyable. One was that the staff would not stop relentlessly chatting (it was so endless that it was a talking point amongst guests), which made it difficult to sleep late in the morning. The second was that the ventilation was very poor and so it was hot and damp all night. The veranda was nice.


a lovely friendly welcoming Moroccan riad with charm and character the owners are warm and helpful. the riad is a hidden gem in a great central location 5 to 7 mins walk to the beach and close to restaurants. I would highly recommend this place


Cute riad in the center of the medina, beautiful rooms. Excellent roof terrace and sitting areas. The breakfast here is sublime and the staff very welcoming and helpful!


It is maybe a bit hard to find but nice people helped us. It is well hidden at the heart of the medina but it is very quiet once you are inside. The atmosphere is great and they staff is very nice and they try hard to make it a great stay for you. WLAN is great, we had hot water, they cleaned the room, we had a great breakfast, and the roof top terrace is awesome.


Excellent breakfast, comfortable bed. Only dissapointment was that the "ensuite" bathroom is not seperated by a door, but rather a tiny wall... So you better be prepared for very close intimacy! :) Staff was fantastic!


Our stay at Riad Thias was fantastic. It is a very beautiful place with very a friendly couple who run it, it is like being welcomed into their home. The bedroom was lovely and comfortable and the a fantastic terrace where you can get some sun or just look out at the surrounding streets. The breakfast was great too.


This is the best Riad i have stayed with the owners being very friendly and helpful. Absolutely gorgeous riad and the breakfast is awesome. I would definitely recommend this riad and if i were to return to Essaouira i would only stay here. Well done and thankyou for making my stay enjoyable.


This renovated Riad looks beautiful with its walls in Tadelekt! Location is ideal, the team in the Riad is very hospitable and helpful - Kudos to Fatema Zohra. The fresh breakfast was delicious !


We had such a great time at Thais! fantastic location, easy to find and very friendly. The facilities were great, especially the hammam. The breakfasts we delicious! Thanks again!


Charming riad, wonderfully decorated. Thaïs was so welcoming, and we very much enjoyed the pastries with the mint tea! Highly recommended.


Absolutely fantastic B&B! The owner is just so helpful and friendly (and speaks english, french and spanish)! The rooms are so beautiful and peaceful. It is the nicest escape from the hustle and bustle madness that can be Morocco :) The breakfast is so delicious and the location is just ideal. We just cannot recomend this Riad enough (and the hammam they have too!) for location, value for money and just how nice it is to be there!


It's very elegant, not typical Moroccan decor. Was a nice break from everything. One complaint though, the shower splashed water EVERYWHERE in the room. If the room you book does not have this problem, then you'll definitely enjoy your stay - brilliant staff and good breakfast, if you choose to have it there. A bit hard to find, the buildings aren't numbered.
