Welcome to Essaouira! No longer a mid-1960's hippy hangout (Jimi Hendrix used to party here); Essaouira has evolved into a still-undiscovered gem of pristine beaches, great windsurfing, laid back nightspots and hearty restaurants. The narrow streets keep traffic to a minimum and encourage walking. With little effort you'll find yourself walking past the multi-colored doors, tall stucco-colored houses and the eclectic mix of euro-tourism and weather-worn locals.

From the mysterious journey down dark, narrow winding quarters at midnight, following a hooded man wheeling a cart with my suitcase to greeting Hassan in the Riad - this trip was everything that is wonderful about Essaouira! The beautiful Riad filled with colour, fantastic Essaouiran Art, plants and unique items of Morocco was incredibly welcoming, warm, comfortable and safe. Madame Saidya was a fantastic chef, presenting delicious breakfasts and explanations every morning and her most excellent son Lotfi was incredibly generous taking me on a great tour of the town and helping me to make some lovely purchases at the best price. Younis, the manager was very attentive and helpful and his terrific team always ensured that my trip was smooth, comfortable and happy. The location could not be more perfect! 3 - 5 minutes to fabulous restaurants, a safe and friendly area and easy walking distance to the Ramparts, Souks and beaches to watch surfers and take a Camel ride.
The sea view is everything and more than promised. I plan to return again next year to this wonderful Riad. Thank you Younis, Saidya, Lotfi and Hassan !
