I loved this place. The linens and towels aren't brand new, but they're clean and they provide extra blankets and a heater. The room gets a lot of natural light which is very refreshing after staying in some windowless riads that get kind of stuffy. TheThe orange juice is delicious!

It was a good place. Clean, friendly and helpful staff. Some of the linens were a bit dated and the heater didn't work very well, but it was well worth the price.

Hospitality at its best

Posted Feb 8, 2017 on Hotels
It was amazing right in the centre of madinah everything is around you. The area has lots of cars and youcab smell ten sometimes. Riad is amazing the service I received was amazing hospitality number one. Breakfast every morning served by Hannah was spot on she asked us what we wanted and she delivered every morning I was full even if I wasn't hungry I ate so not to miss out. My room was great there was three of us and then double bed and single bed lots of spaces. The roof terrace was perfect and cute we snowed up there as we couldn't smoke in rooms and I was never too cold. Out eifi eas pretty good sometimes it was in and out but the majority of my stay it worked perfect. Wish I ate dinner at the Riad but I didn't. I will def go back price was amazing and company and the people I met was great on my last day I took one of the guest surfing which was fun!! I'll be back!!

Ok as a resting place only

We stayed at this Riad for two nights. It's ok as a base for exploring the town, Their breakfast is very basic and dry, my kids struggled to eat their hard bread. Their staff can hardly understand english and it was a bit of struggle to ask for simple things.

Riad l'Ayel d'Essaouira

Posted Apr 17, 2012
Cons: Its location down a dark, narrow alley.
A well refurbished and maintained Riad, centtrally located, though not easy to find.

Stay Okay

The Riad was in a very convenient location just off the high street. You are e-mailed in advance with directions to the Riad which was very nice and the directions were very clear (although in broken English) and made the Riad easy to find. The Riad manager made every effort to accomodate us and was very easy to get on with. Breakfast was quite predictable each morning but sufficient enough. The room itself was very dark and chilly - there was no natural light into the room which doesn't make it good value for money but otherwise a perfectly fine place to have as a base to explore Essaouira (of which there isn't much to explore).

never judge a book by its cover

Found our riad down a rather dark, narrow side street. We wondered what we'd booked - but as we entered the hotel, what a delight. We were greeted with tea before being shown to our room. Beautifully decorated, comfortably furnished, lovely and clean. A sun terrace above our room. Just be careful - there's a 3cm step up from the living area to the bedroom which I constantly caught my big toe on!!
