Amy Adejokun Section editor

This is the only riad in Essaouira to have direct views over the ramparts and the rocks. This is a simply breathtaking sight! This former windmill has successfully been converted into a charming riad. Even if you're not staying here, it's worth having a drink or meal at its restaurant, be it just to enjoy the view. The riad is also ideal for a romantic stay in Essaouira.

    Location 9.74 /10

    The Mimouna riad is nestled in one of the small streets in the medina not far from the Skala. It directly overlooks the rocks and the fortification walls and thus affords a stunning view. The souks and various tourist attractions are close by, or alternatively, the medina also provides a fine setting for a walk. The airport, meanwhile, is around a 45-minute drive away.

    Accommodation 7.70 /10

    This Rian has no less than 33 guest rooms and suites spread across 3 floors. The rooms' interior is refined and chic, yet simple. They feature wooden ceilings, nice furniture, and high-quality materials in the bathroom. Moroccan handcraft is also on display, and in some, you can see the remnants of the former windmill, with its rounded stone walls. All the rooms are decorated in the same fashion, with warm tones (ochre, brown and beige), dark wood furniture, wooden ceilings, wrought iron chandeliers and wooden lamps, and the bathrooms feature magnificent Moroccan zelliges. The only difference between the rooms is that the mini suites have a fireplace and a sea view, whereas the standard rooms don't have a fireplace and only sometimes afford a sea view. This riad provides all the mod-cons, such as free Wi-Fi, a TV, a telephone, heating, air-conditioning, a safe and a hair-dryer. The rooms are truly pleasant and the view alone justifies a one or two-night stay here. The bay window of one of the suites looks directly out onto the ramparts and the rocks, so it's probably not the best choice if you're afraid of heights. However, when a storm is blowing, it's the best place to be.

    Overview 7.20 /10

    This former windmill dating from 1896 was in ruins before being renovated and converted into a riad. A particularly charming hotel that opened its doors in 2005, it never fails to seduce its guests. The form of the windmill was preserved during the renovation works. In the entrance hall, for example, you'll notice the curved shape of the original windmill, and the spiral stairway is a reminder of the building's past. The Moroccan architectural style was also preserved. This riad is bigger than the others you'll see in the medina, but this doesn't alter its charm and elegance. Its terrace has a breathtaking view of the sea and the fortification walls. It also boasts its own Turkish baths, should you feel in need of some relaxation. You can then head over to the fireplace and enjoy a good book before dinner.

    Food and drink 7.20 /10

    The restaurant is located on the roof and affords a splendid view of the ocean, the ramparts and the medina. This is the highest-located restaurant in the medina, consisting of a large terrace and an indoor section with bay windows, where the chef prepares international cuisine and local specialties. The culinary offerings here mainly include fish and seafood. Breakfast, lunch and dinner are all served outside and inside, where the decor is traditional and simple, with black wicker furniture, wrought iron chandeliers and a wooden ceiling. Do bear in mind though, that no alcohol is served in the restaurant.

    The hotel doesn't serve alcohol.

      • Package deals in mai 2013 Posted on 2013-07-23 Seul - 3 à 5 nuitées (Chambre avec vue)

        Certainement un des plus beaux emplacements pour une vue à 360 degrés sur essaouira, sa médina et la mer à perte de vue; l'accueil est chaleureux et tout semble être fait pour faire de ce séjour un moment agréable; les chambres sont très inégales et celles sur la mer sont l'intérêt majeur de cet hotel puisque les vagues taquinent les murs de cet hotel entièrement récemment réonvé

      • Advantages

        la vue sur la mer des chambres côté mer, l'accueil très chaleureux, la terrasse bien que mal entretenue

      • Disavantages

        les chambres qui ne donnent pas sur lamer; l'éclairage du lieu insuffisant, le service restaurant , pas à la hauteur du standing affiché

        Un Riad avec beaucoup de charme et le seul ayant une vue directe sur la mer. Nous étions dans une suite. C'était tout simplement magique.

      • Advantages

        Vue imprenable sur la mer. Restauration très bonne. Le personnel est au petit soins. Chambres spacieuses, propre et au goût du Maroc.

      • Disavantages

        Prix du restaurant élevé, il vaut mieux aller manger à l'extérieur. Le thé de bienvenue n'est pas gratuit mais payant.

      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.

      Dar L'Oussia is a welcoming riad not far from the tourist sites. Simple and unpretentious, it may disappoint those who are after something a little warmer, so, if you want to be impressed in terms of decor, this is not the place for you.

      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.

      This is a historic hotel in Essaouira, where Orson Welles once stayed. The Hotel des Iles is a little old and worn but it has a kind of aura and mystery about it. It is well-located and provides an alternative for travellers on a restricted budget. It will be interesting to revisit this hotel once the renovation work has been completed.
