Pros: Perfect! Very kind and helpful staff, beautiful comfortable terrace to chill out
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Great Riad, absolutely the best experience in the whole trip, we loved it hence decided to stay one more night which wasnt planned initially. Check in was very pleasant and reception person done the best job by providing tea on arrival and some sweets. Room was facing the ocean side and had an amazing view, had heater inside which helped a lot in the evening and was decorated very much in line with whole town concept of white walls etc. Breakfast provided next morning was great and they also consider your diet requirements ie if you are vegan etc. Only one thing to keep in mind, but it has nothing to do with hotel on its own, its an old part of the town and when we arrived there were works ongoing to update either phone or electricity line so it was messy on way into the Riad and a bit loud, but again nothing to do with service of place. Amazing place and we would definitely recommend it.
Cons: Only one thing to keep in mind, but it has nothing to do with hotel on its own, its an old part of the town and when we arrived there were works ongoing to update either phone or electricity line so it was messy on way into the Riad and a bit loud, but again nothing to do with service of place.

6.3 Good
Pros: great breakfast at the roof with plenty of food !
Cons: lazy receptionist had barely tips, difficult to communicate with and no kingsize single matrass bed.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Very good location inside the Medina: quite and at walking distance to all attractions and points of interests. Our room with one queen bed and one single bed was clean, lightly and comfortable (cold if you travel during wintertime). Breakfast was good and served on a beautiful roof-terrace, but not gluten free options. The staff was kind and helpful. Keep in mind that this facility has no elevator: depending on where you are located, you might have to climb several staircase. In any case the staff is very helpful with the luggage.
6.0 Good
Pros: Riad is well located and has all amenities. Staff are very nice.
Cons: It is a 3 star place, clean but the linens and towels could use an upgrade. It’s good value for money. We had a stray cat enter our room in the night through a window which was very scary!! But the place dealt with it very well.
9.0 Excellent
Pros: We stayed for 2 nights in this beautiful Riad located in the center of the Medina. The room was spacious with a comfortable bed, it was not modern but moroccan style. Breakfast was good with various fresh produce from the region. The staff was very welcoming, friendly and helpful.

9.0 Excellent
Pros: Very nice place in a good location. The staff is very friendly and the breakfast on the roof top is just amazing.
9.0 Excellent
Pros: This was one of the most stylish riads we stayed in during our trip to Morocco – all the elements looked and felt very intentional, like a lot of thought was put into each tiny detail. We also loved the fireplace in the lobby, a great place to relax in the evening. The hosts were very welcoming and the breakfast food nice. Also, our room had windows facing the outdoors – always a gamble when staying in a traditional riad. The location was alright, too – a 10 minuite walk from the parking outside the city gates.
Cons: The breakfast was served on the rooftop terrace – I'm sure it's amazing during the summer, but a bit too cold in January:) Also, there was quite a lot of flies in the room for some reason.

9.6 Excellent
Pros: Wonderful hosts, great location, stylish accommodation
9.0 Excellent
Pros: Very comfortable bed and duvet (which is not self-evident in this price category in Morocco). Nice and easy-going owner Philippe and his wife! Good breakfast (for this price category in Morocco). Quiet and restful night.
Cons: I couldn't find the location because I used the adress mentioned in the booking description through Google Maps (which leads to a totally different place). This wasn't fun at all! I would expect the description to warn the visitor to use this address. Afterwards I discovered that a map with the correct place was sent by an email with title "confirmation of reservation & useful tips and Map", which I ignored - I can imagine that many visitors fall in the same trap.
9.0 Excellent
Pros: Friendly knowledgeable staff. Great advice for perfect sunset location! In the medina which was great for easy access to great restaurants. Clean and colourful decor.
Cons: Top floor drain in shower was blocked. Even after taking plug out. No wall heater or fan, so it was a bit stuffy as main window didn’t open. Comfy bed though, and was warm, even though it was winter.
9.0 Excellent
Pros: Owners were super nice and very helpful providing great restaurant options. The location was smack in the middle of the medina, an easy walk to the beach and medina gate
10.0 Excellent
Pros: The Riad is centrally located but quiet off the Main Street. Staff are friendly and helpful. Breakfast was excellent.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Riad Dar el Paco was the best riad we had during our 10days trip in Morocco. The staff is very helpful and provided us with very good recommendations for Restaurants. The Location is close to all main sights in Essaouira. The Rooms were cleaned every day. The Highlights are the Roof top Terrasse and the breakfast. We really enjoyed our stay!
9.0 Excellent
Pros: The staff was super helpful and started engaging on whatsapp immediately after the booking. They were will prepared for our arrival. The property is located in the medina and is easy to locate using map.me. We stayed in the Touareg room and liked it. They had hot water, plenty of blankets and hair dryer. The breakfast spread was excellent. The staff showed us the best places to visit in Essaouira. The restaurant recommendation of 'Adwak' was excellent made for a worthy last meal we had in Morocco.
Cons: The reception closes at 7pm and any arrivals after that has a surcharge for EUR 5. Not sure for the reason of the surcharge, but I feel paying an additional 15-16% of accommodation price is a hidden fee that you know only after making the booking (which was non-refundable in our case). Also, if you like sleeping late, avoid the room that's on the same floor as breakfast (Atlas if I am not mistaken). Depending on the guests in the house (small kids during our stay) this floor is quite noisy.
9.0 Excellent
Pros: The service from the staff was exceptional. Location was great. Rooms were nice.
Cons: Shower was blocked. There were many stairs.

Pros: The room hada nice view
Cons: The room was very smelly, the towels were dirty, the breakfast was very poor we couldn’t eat, there were no slippers which we would expect having paid this amount
10.0 Excellent
Pros: This is simply one of the best places we've stayed in for welcome, service, helpfulness and willingness to 'go the extra mile.' The staff are truly exceptional, from the reception, through to the catering and cleaning staff. All seem to work as a team with the guest at its centre. Helpful suggestions re places to see and eat. Had dinner in one night which was marvellous and inexpensive. Our stay included a "significant" birthday for my wife. The staff joined in the spirit, decorated the room amazingly, provided fresh flowers to make her birthday truly memorable. Thank you Riad Chbanate!
Cons: Some people may not like the location which is not in a "posh" part of the Medina but it adds to the feeling of Riad Chbanate being an oasis of calm.

It was exactly whay I was looking for. Staff is excellent and quite diligent as well, and the owner is such a great and lovely person, I did enjoy chatting with him everyday that I found him either on the terrace at breakfast ot ar the lobby at noon.

6.7 Good
Pros: Well actually it may be that booking .com had it wrong , our room was not a superior double , just a double without windows , did not receive wine as stated in booking .com , that was your fault not theirs . The staff here are fantastic .
Cons: It’s was fine ,
9.6 Excellent
Pros: We booked the sea view room, which was not cheap but definitely worth it. The riad is literally built on the beach so the sights and sounds from the ocean outside was incredible!
Cons: Nothing!
10.0 Excellent
Pros: The owner and the staff were friendly and accommodating.
Cons: I would not say I dislike the fact but I was surprised that the properties in the city as in all middle eastern cities alike did not have street addresses ,something Westerners are familiar with in order to locate the property. The locals know where the properties are located, taxi drivers and street merchants, but it’s difficult to find the addresses on your own.
10.0 Excellent

9.0 Excellent
Pros: The staff was super Gentle and the structure has lots of beautiful details, the breakfast was generous and the terrace has a nice view!
Cons: Nothing, everything was great!
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Riad Jade Mogador is a comfortable riad in the heart of the medina in Essaouira, run by communicative and very friendly people who helped me plan my trip by giving prompt replies to my quieries. I had a beautiful double room with balcony on the first floor where I felt welcome and very comfortable. The room was clean, the bed was comfortable, and cleaning service was offered daily. For the cool December nights, plenty of warm blankets and an electric heater were put at my disposal in the room. The shower has hot water and the wifi worked fairly well on the first floor. The riad is filled with beautiful traditionally Moroccan household objects and artefacts that I was fascinated to see. Breakfast is served daily in traditional, colourful ceramic pottery which I loved! I chose to have breakfast on the beautiful terrace which is reached by climbing a few very steep flights of stairs. The climb is well worth it, as the terrace offers amazing views of the medina, the city ramparts and the ocean. The riad cat and the seagulls always kept me company up there :) Breakfast is traditionally Moroccan with home made pastry, freshly squeezed orange juice, two sorts of jam, coffee, butter, bread and eggs. The stuff is friendly and speaks both English and French. I was provided with a hair dryer on request and the kind lady who received me also kindly assisted me with a few other things. I really recommend this place for an enjoyable stay in the beautiful city of Essaouira.
Cons: Travellers who choose to stay in the medina need to know that riads are build in such a manner that light only comes from above, which means they are sometimes a little darker than other types of accommodation. Hot water is available here, but you need to use it sparingly, as it does not last long. These things are not a negative comment, just a side note so that travellers who choose to stay here understand what they are in for.
9.0 Excellent
Pros: I liked the location and the fact that was a traditional riad. I also liked the staff - a very nice lady.
Cons: In my room some improvements to the bathroom at least can be made, but there was a good price however in comparision!

3.3 Mediocre
Pros: The room hada nice view
Cons: The room was very smelly, the towels were dirty, the breakfast was very poor we couldn’t eat, there were no slippers which we would expect having paid this amount
10.0 Excellent
Pros: This is simply one of the best places we've stayed in for welcome, service, helpfulness and willingness to 'go the extra mile.' The staff are truly exceptional, from the reception, through to the catering and cleaning staff. All seem to work as a team with the guest at its centre. Helpful suggestions re places to see and eat. Had dinner in one night which was marvellous and inexpensive. Our stay included a "significant" birthday for my wife. The staff joined in the spirit, decorated the room amazingly, provided fresh flowers to make her birthday truly memorable. Thank you Riad Chbanate!
Cons: Some people may not like the location which is not in a "posh" part of the Medina but it adds to the feeling of Riad Chbanate being an oasis of calm.

Pros: Perfect! Very kind and helpful staff, beautiful comfortable terrace to chill out
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Great Riad, absolutely the best experience in the whole trip, we loved it hence decided to stay one more night which wasnt planned initially. Check in was very pleasant and reception person done the best job by providing tea on arrival and some sweets. Room was facing the ocean side and had an amazing view, had heater inside which helped a lot in the evening and was decorated very much in line with whole town concept of white walls etc. Breakfast provided next morning was great and they also consider your diet requirements ie if you are vegan etc. Only one thing to keep in mind, but it has nothing to do with hotel on its own, its an old part of the town and when we arrived there were works ongoing to update either phone or electricity line so it was messy on way into the Riad and a bit loud, but again nothing to do with service of place. Amazing place and we would definitely recommend it.
Cons: Only one thing to keep in mind, but it has nothing to do with hotel on its own, its an old part of the town and when we arrived there were works ongoing to update either phone or electricity line so it was messy on way into the Riad and a bit loud, but again nothing to do with service of place.

Featured amenities include complimentary wired Internet access, dry cleaning/laundry services, and a 24-hour front desk. For a surcharge, guests may use a roundtrip airport shuttle (available on request) and a train station pick-up service.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: We had the most beautiful stay at Villa Daba in April. The owner, Mr. Didier was incredibly helpful, very attentive, and welcoming. He answered all of my questions and more, always willing to help solve any issue and make you feel at home. The house was absolutely gorgeous, isolated, a real paradise. The pool is heated year long and very enjoyable, there is also a ping pong table. This would be great for couples or for families. There is a cute dog and friendly donkeys to pet. There is a Hamman in the backyard, free to use and you can buy a massage/mani-pedi. The food was to die for, all home-cooked by Mrs. Didier and also very affordable. Alcohol was available, which is not very common in Morocco. The room was very comfortable and quiet at night time even with other guests in the house. I stayed here with my husband and we did not have a car so we walked the 2km to the main road to grab a taxi for 10 dirhams and headed into town (10 mins car ride). It is a nice and peaceful walk but would not be easy to do with large bags, etc. You can also call a taxi to pick you up at the house itself but this costs more 100 dirhams. The owner is happy to drive you for free if he is headed into town at the same time as you which is very nice too. We wish we could've stayed longer!
9.6 Excellent
Pros: breakfast was nice, simple but satisfactory. location was good too.. owners are fantastic!
9.6 Excellent
Pros: We had a wonderful peaceful stay at the Villa Daba. The owners are lovely, and really helpful. They suggested places for us to go, and on one day even recommended and booked a lovely restaurant for lunch for us. And the villa quiet with a beautifully clean and warm swimming pool. We visited in October and we had the pool to ourselves. Every morning we had a continental breakfast round the swimming pool as the sun rose. Every bedroom is unique, and different, and ours was full of character and comfortable. On some evenings we had dinner at the villa, and the cooking was superb. We were asked what we would like in advance for a main, and the fish was fantastic. But so was the chicken tagine.
Cons: The only disadvantage of the villa is that it is a mile or two down a dirt road, and you need a car to get there. But we soon got used to this, and we look forward to returning!
8.8 Excellent
Pros: Staff were lovely. Beautiful pool and we had a 2 bedded room
Cons: Be aware that the hotel only takes cash

8.3 Excellent
Pros: Super staff! Great location
Cons: The beach club was no good quality vs price
6.7 Good
Pros: Proximity to the beach. Hot tub and swimming pool.
Cons: It’s clear money was invested into this property but it looks like corporate greed has taken over and little money is being invested to maintain this so called “5 star” hotel. The room was not clean. The bathroom was worse. Some people were snarky and unhelpful. We spent half the money in more busier parts of Morocco and hospitality and cleanliness was top class.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Beautiful hotel with own beds at the beach. Perfect breakfast. Good location - 10 min walk to Medina.
8.3 Excellent
Pros: Breakfast by the pool was great. The food was pleasant. The view of the sea was excellent and the pool was really nice. The lobby was nice and the staff were helpful and pleasant; they booked me transfers to and from Essaouira which worked like clockwork. The location is super and the water sports shop in front of the hotel was great so nearby.
Cons: As people say, it’s a little bit dated. The staff were good but a couple of things slipped through the cracks; requests for dinner reservations were forgotten etc
7.5 Good
Pros: Great location. Spacious hotel.
Cons: Lack of plates and cups during breakfast. Constantly need a waiter to arrange things for you.

5.1 Okay
Pros: Proximity to the beach. Okay cleanesse
Cons: Dear Hotel Director : While having my Lunch before my departure on 25/04/2018, I came down to reception and I told them that I would ordered my lunch at the bar, went to room grab my stuff which all was ready and come down to check out. As soon as I set down at a table at the bar a female who checked me out later called the bar to make sure i am at the bar and probably she thought I lied to her ( what an irresponsible disgusting business behavior of hers, shame on her, she made me and other things to never come back to Atlas and i will try Sofitel next time). I heard the female bartender telling her out loud and i quote her: “yes he is here and he requested lunch”. I stood up and told the bartender a man that I will leave to check out and come back to eat while my food is being prepared. I checked out immediately in 5 Mins and came back to the bar. While I was at my table I hear all kinds of rumors, mocking and loud noises from the piano area every now and then, complete disturbance of my lunch by the Le Seven manager and the bar staff. I ate so fast just to leave that bar. I demanded my check from a server who seemed just got in to the bar and he was quick to bring my check and i signed it with my credit card and i put cash tip on the table and left running away from a savage bar environment (sorry that was the feeling that bar gave me by its staff and manager). I am not going to tolerate this and i will not recommencer your hotel if asked only, because of the horrific experience I had at your hotel . It was not the first time I came to your hotel and I had good impression before I came this time. The facts I indicated above made a complete disappointment from some of your staff not all. As we say you have not only one bad apple there but couple. Thank you for your time, A.B

7.0 Good
Pros: The rooms and the property are a bit dated, but so is almost everything else in the area. The staff in the lobby area was pretty fantastic. You can’t beat the location of the property right on the beach AND next to the Medina entrance. As you can see in every other review, don’t pay for the breakfast and walk somewhere else to eat. I don’t understand why they don’t fix this issue based on all of the feedback. Either improve it or only charge 50 durhams for it. It is NOT a 200 Durham breakfast.
