Great Rental in Essaouira - good location

  • 5 of 5

We are a family of 12 and spent 5 nights in this Raid - we rented all the rooms so it was basically a private house for us. It's well located right in the center of the Medina and only a few blocks from the beach and port. The Raid was well maintained, clean and the staff very helpful.

Laurent was a pleasure to work with, he was always available for any questions. He assisted in planning all our excursions (ie - quads, horseback rides, cooking class, etc...). All were very good recommendations. He does not speak English (speaks French), and we only speak English, but would translate the discussion via his phone so communications was not a problem.

The roof deck is terrific!!!

I highly recommend this Raid for your stay in Essaouira.

Super Riad

  • 5 of 5

Superbe Riad de plus de 100 ans, très bien décoré et aménagé. Laurent le propriétaire et Majeed de gérant nous ont très bien accueillis et très bien conseillés sur Essaouira et ses environs. Les lits étaient confortables. Nous sommes partis avec plusieurs amis et le riad a fait l'unanimité. Je recommande

En ukes opphold i en sentralt beliggende Riad i Essaouira

  • 5 of 5

Vi var 10 venner som tilbrakte en uke i denne Riad i månedskiftet februar/mars.

Huset fungerte utmerket for oss og det var romslig med en flott takterasse. Vi hadde et skifte av manager underveis og særlig etter dette fungerte vårt opphold fantastisk. Vår nye manager "Magic" og hans stab gjorde det de kunne for at vi skulle trives. Vi hadde en del samkvem på kveldene der det ble musisert med stor innlevelse og glede. En sann kulturutveksling.

Vi fikk servert frokost på takterassen hver morgen og denne var også topp.

Så alt i alt var vi veldig fornøyd med oppholdet.

Med vennlig hilsen Tron Kittelsen

Non e' una casa ad uso esclusivo

  • 1 of 5

Triste vicenda capitataci all'arrivo, delle 6 camere prenotate con uso esclusivo dell'abitazione, ve ne erano solo 5 , Inoltre tanti arredi delle foto erano mancanti , quali tappeti e tendaggi etc, ma la nota insormontabile era l'umidita' che si sentiva nell'aria per tutta l'abitazione, infatti non esistono caloriferi , solo un caminetto nel soggiorno al pian terreno, quindi l'aspettativa era di dormire al freddo e umido , l gestore mi ha invitato ad andare a comperare la legna per l'unico caminetto, asserendo che avrebbe riscaldato tutti e 3 i livelli.

abbiamo preferito abbandonare la struttura nonostante le conseguenze amministartivo contabili.

Non e' assolutamente consigliabile in inverno.

Owner's Response: Storia triste per me in particolare, avrebbe dovuto essere onesti e dimmi prima di effettuare la prenotazione si esegue una agenzia di viaggi e desidera ospitare i vostri clienti. E 'vietato sub affitto nel nostro Riad come in tutte le sistemazioni, siete l'arte e lo sai molto bene. Trovo il tuo comportamento non consono Sei commenti disonesti sul riad e non siete mai stati a casa mi hai bloccato date e impedito di affitto durante questo periodo.
