    Gorgeous, quaint courtyard ‘boutique’ hotel; delightfuly decorated rooms, peaceful ambience but only the opening of a couple of doors separates you from the intensity of the Médina. A truly pleasant place to relax with some of the friendliest staff I’ve ever encountered

    Ryad Watier is simply perfect in every way. It is located on a safe and quiet street...only a two minute walk from the bustling Medina. Breakfast is delicious and abundant, but more importantly, served on the rooftop terrace with views of the ocean. It is the perfect start to each morning in Essaouira. The riad itself is stunning. The common areas are filled with thoughtfully chosen furniture and artwork; representative of the Moroccan culture as well as the owner’s passions. There is a library stuffed with hundreds and hundreds of books...something for everyone to read, or also just enjoyable to peruse through the massive collection. The rooms continue the theme of the riad with individually selected decor and artwork throughout. The tapestries and rugs have all of the rich colors of Morocco, contrasted with some nautically themed artwork to gently remind you that the Atlantic Ocean is only minutes away... it all comes together beautifully. The rooms are exceptionally spacious, meticulously maintained, and the housekeeping staff keeps them spotless, daily. The staff at Ryad Watier will make you feel comfortable from the moment you step through the big blue door. Jean-Gabriel and his staff are so welcoming and friendly that you just might end up spending more time lounging around the riad than roaming the Medina. Be sure to enjoy dinner at least one night in... Dunya made the most spectacular tagine, my best meal in Morocco. Thank you Ryad Watier.

    まずスタッフがとても親切で暖かいと感じました。 街やバスチケットの取り方など細かく教えてもらいました。 部屋はとても清潔でWiFiもばっちりです。 朝食は屋上で頂きました。その日は少し寒かったので私が寒そうにしてると毛布を掛けてくれました。 素晴らしいスタッフだと感じました。 またエッサウィラに行ったら絶対泊まりたいです。

    Ryadl très bien tenu et personnel impeccable

    Hôtel idéalement situé pour découvrir la Médina. Les conseils et l'aide des gérants ont été très utiles pour faire des excusions hors des sentiers battus et faciliter la réservation des activités.
