Amy Adejokun Section editor

Modern, refined and chic, the riad Madada Mogador may remind you of a loft in architectural terms, but it's located in the medina of Essaouira. You'll really feel at home here, thanks to the attentive and discrete service. It's very different from the other riads located in the medina, and maybe a little less authentic, but it is just as pleasant and most probably more friendly.

    Location 7.57 /10

    The Riad Madada Mogador is not far from one of the entrances to the medina. To find it easily, head for the El Minzah gate (Bab), next to Orson Welles square. The area around the riad provides a nice setting for a stroll (souk, cultural visits, walk in the port, beaches...). It will take around 45 minutes to get to the airport by taxi.

    Accommodation 8.20 /10

    With only 7 guest rooms, the Riad Madada Mogador is a small and intimate hotel. The rooms (spread around the patio and the terrace) are all decorated in the same style, mixing Moroccan touches with hints of chic. The colours chosen are warm, and the high ceilings make the size of the rooms seem more generous. This feeling is further instilled by the fact that the bathroom isn't separate from the rest of the room. Instead, the bathroom opens onto the bedroom and features an impressive tadelakt bathtub, which is ideal for an evening dip while listening to your favourite music on the iPod dock. The toilets, however, are separate from the room. You might be interested to know that apart from rooms Assala and Sabra, all afford a sea view.

    Overview 7.70 /10

    The riad Madada Mogador has been open for several years now, and occupies the first floor of one of the medina's more traditional residences. Behind the nice wooden door lies a true haven of tranquillity. Just ring the doorbell and you'll be welcomed by smiling staff or by Christine, the owner of the establishment. When it rains, a fireplace crackles away in a corner of the patio, which lies under a glass roof. This a really cheerful, welcoming and well-lit place, providing a real invitation for some relaxation. Books, board games and Wi-Fi access are all available, and mint tea, coffee and other fruit juices are served here, too. The setting blends Moroccan elements and a modern and Zen style, and will make you feel right at home. If you want to soak up some sun, just climb a few steps and you'll find a nice terrace affording an ocean view. The massage parlour is located on this same terrace... A massage with a sea view, what more could you ask for?

    Food and drink 7.20 /10

    Breakfast is served on the terrace, in your room or on the patio, according to your mood and preference. Throughout the day, the staff are available to prepare a sandwich, a toastie or a salad, which you can enjoy with a glass of wine or juice on the terrace or on the patio.

    To know

    The riad organises Moroccan cooking lessons which can be attended by all of its guests. These take place in a kitchen (in a former almond warehouse) located just a short distance away from the riad. In the morning, you'll cook with the Moroccan chef, and you can also visit the local market before tasting dishes you have cooked yourself. Prices are around £35 per person. Additionally, in the afternoons, an oriental pastry workshop is organised (£16). All lessons are given in English and in French.

      A recommendable place for lovers who will find a quiet place, good for romantic holidays. Consisting of three riads dating from the XVIII century, the Villa Morocco only has 13 rooms, which adds to the charm of the place.

      The Villa Quieta is just for you if you want complete relaxation. The decoration is very beautiful but the hotel does not provide animation activities, swimming pools or any real gardens. However, its terrace is a nice place to get tan. The hotel does not serve alcohol and you will have to go out to get your meal. The beach is located opposite the hotel.
