Guestbook comments from the owner

Riad Caro is a wonderful, welcoming (and far more stylish than my) home from home in the centre of bustling Essaouira old town. The luxury of having a bed and bathroom on every floor and the highest roof terrace in town was met only by the luxury of having fresh orange juice, roses, pastries and mint tea delivered to us every morning by the completely wonderful Said who is on hand to arrange airport pick-ups, show you around town and draw extremely detailed maps.

Riad Caro is a beautifully made and maintained oasis of calm and a must-visit destination in Morocco.

The riad is clean and comfortable. The sleeping beds were spotless. By Sandra perfect reception. And Naima who had to clean change the sheets every day was very nice, we will take this riad again if we return to Essaouira,

A Beautiful, unique, friendly, safe, central Riad

  • 5 of 5

We had a brilliant family week staying in this beautiful arty Riad and would stk lay recommend and go back for a return holiday.

We arrived late at night via a very comfortable taxi transfer which was kindly arranged for us by Caroline (great communication always) and Sandra from Marrakech. The next day we were warmly welcomed by Sandra who overseas your trip and the cleaner. Both were excellent help throghout our stay.

The Riad is beautiful decorated with interesting pictures and pieces, the longue has a massive surround sofa and we enjoyed playing cards there, the kitchen full equipt & dinner table excellent practical style, the third downstairs room is another little longue area with is so unqiue. The whole Riad is very roomy with 3 floors of comfortable, colourful bedrooms each with own bathroom and then there also a bright roof terrace.

Central in the medina you don't have to walk far for great restaurants and cafes. And the beach/port/city walls is only ten min walk so an ideal location for all.

A throughly enjoyable stay, we will be back! Thank you

Great place to stay

A few of us stayed here last year for a week in December. The Riad is in a great location and was really nice. All went smoothly and would definitely recommend!

Great Experience

  • 5 of 5

We were met at the bus station by Sandra, who brought us to the riad in the heart of the medina and also gave recommendation on restaurants and things to do. The property was clean, spacious and and well furnished. Every morning the maid would come to prepare breakfast and do the cleaning. We had four wonderful relaxing days and have great memories of our dtay in Essaouira and the riad

Super chic house great location

  • 4 of 5

Can't recommend this Riad enough!

The caretaker was very helpful and met us at the gates of the city and led us 5 minutes through the labyrinthine streets of Essaouira right to the door of the property. Upon entry you are taken aback by the epic height and brightness of the central light well which rises up 4 floors from the foyer. Really quite magnificent! We were greeted with mint tea and cookies on arrival and given a map of the best restaurants etc. The property is incredibly tastefully decorated and has a beautiful kitchen and nice bathrooms. The Sitting room is really cosy and lovely and the beds were very comfortable. The maid makes a lovely breakfast each morning which we had on the roof terrace which has incredible views over the whole city and you can even see the ocean.

Overall it was a superb experience all around and gets my full recommendation.

Owner's Response: So pleased that you loved the Riad so much. And very jealous that you were having breakfast on the roof terrace whilst it was snowing in the UK! Please visit again soon...
