Riad Raoud Rayhan, Essaouira
We spent almost 3 weeks at this Riad while in Morocco and we could not have asked for better. The Riad is beautiful - newly renovated only 2 years ago with great taste, authenticity and attention to detail. Simply wonderful. The location is great - right in the middle of the Medina but at the end of a very quiet alley. The Riad has a very nice spa with great massages and a Hammam. And above all - Halima (the manager) and the staff are amazing - from the moment we stepped into the door, we were welcome like part of the family. They went out of their way to make our stay comfortable and memorable. I highly recommend this place.

Clean and convenient in the Medina
Convenient location in the Medina. Breakfast inconsistent and not so nutritional. WiFi decent. Rooms are cold cold cold, no heat. Good showers. The staff will come outside and run after you if you don't leave your room key at the front desk...kind of weird.

Great location, lovely riad...!
Stayed here for three nights and the Riad is lovely. The location was great. The beds are quite hard though, as are the pillows. Otherwise, it suited our needs just fine.

Bad choice
The room it was very small, in the photos look much bigger than in reality, you barely could move. room badly maintained. staff and mostly owner very rude, unwelcoming and unprofessional behaviour. I was told in the morning that I wasn't entitled to breakfast, even thought it was in my booking confirmation and it was confirmed in my check in!! Cat living and moving around the hotel. Location feels unsafe at evening. I made my choice based on good reviews, it was a very bad decision and I truly regretted.

Hidden gem amongst historical Essaouira
We were greeted by aroma therapy and soft comforting music upon arrival. The staff were very courteous and pleased to assist at any request. The rooms were very clean, quiet and pleasant surrounds. The road is in amongst the souk so don't have to walk far for anything. Highly recommend to anyone this authentic riad you will not be disappointed.
