Know It All

Hit the spot
Right on the ramparts of Essaouira, with mile-wide views. 

Come here for... 
● A winning location next to sea and souks. ● Chic and minimalist Maroc style. ● Scenic roof terrace with sweeping bay views.  

There's a large roof terrace for al fresco dining and drinks, and a lounge with board games and books. In-room massage treatments can be arranged, and staff will be happy to fix up watersports and land based activities including cooking classes. You won't need to go far to dine out – there's a restaurant below the riad.

Good to know
The downstairs restaurant can be a tad noisy – light sleepers may want to opt for a top floor room.


Seven rooms and suites

Special features
Rooms have tadelakt walls, dark wood furnishings and a chic ethnic feel, with sleek tiled bathrooms – several with deep stone tubs. Two rooms have a medina view, while the rest are ocean facing. Most have access to a balcony or terrace. There’s wi-fi internet access, iPod docks and aircon.

Pillow Talk
The Cherifa suite is the splashiest room with its ocean views, terrace and huge sunken bath. Madada is another winner, with a private terrace overlooking the town ramparts.

Eat & Drink

Dining in
There’s no restaurant, but you can order munchies during the day – salads, paninis and Croque Monsieur. Madada Mogador’s panoramic terrace is also the perfect place for a sundowner.  After Five, on the ground floor below, serves up a great mix of tapas, grills and chilled sounds.

Breakfast with fresh fruit, yoghurt and pancakes is served until 10am.

Room service
Available until early evening.


See & Do
Wander around the souks and the fascinating old town, go quad biking in the sand dunes, horse riding on the beach or kite and wind surfing in the bay. Staff will also help you arrange a day’s swimming and lunch by the pool at one of Essaouira’s big hotels.

You can go for a boat ride along the coast, have a camel ride or hire bikes and scooters to explore the town. You could also visit one of the olive oil farms in the nearby Argan valley.


Three nearby traditional hammams offer body scrubs and massage, and there’s a big thalassotherapy centre at the Sofitel. You can also book a traditional Berber massage in your room.

Diary Dates
See the musicians with their tasselled hats, drums and lutes at the big Essaouira Gnawa and World Music Festival.
