Nydelig og spesielt hotell med meget sentral beliggenhet. Fantastisk takterrasse der man kan få servert frokosten. Hyggelig og meget hjelpsom betjening Knapt noe rom med utsikt/utsyn. Flere rom uten vindu på soverommet. Lufting skal da skje gjennom tilstøtende rom. Dette burde man ha visst om på forhånd! Fikk bytte rom.Forøvrig alt meget bra.
A wonderful place on earth. We enjoyed every minute in our room - with the view, wind and waves - and also the interior of the whole hotel - and the roof terrasse - and the friendly staff.
The sea view was magnificent. No alcohol exists in the hotel. If you want some wine with your dinner you have to bring your own. We
Great location and fantastic views. Staff were very friendly and the breakfast was very good. The receptionist enquired about activities we might be interested in, we mentioned horse riding and she was very insistent about booking it for us. I'd say she is on commission. Anyway it turns out the ranch they use is Diabat, which we read some bad reviews about and the reviews are true...the horses are skittish and jumpy and I wouldn't recommend doing horse riding through the hotel.
Excellent staff,very helpful and courteous. Stayed in a sea view suite overlooking the Atlantic. Felt like sleeping on the beach.Magnificent hotel.
We had a room with a double aspect sea view which was fantastic. The restaurant is on the roof so there are spectacular sea views for you to admire while you are having breakfast. The location is perfect. The outside roof terrace was very mucky. I can see that the seagulls are a big problem but if the area was cleaned up it would be great to sit out there as the views are great.
The hotel is in an extraordinary position by the sea, and the room we had was like being in a ship on the high seas. We were surrounded by rocks and crashing waves. The wind and sea were quite noisy although it didn't disturb our sleep. The staff were very helpful and pleasant. The breakfasts were ok but we had better breakfasts in other places in Morocco
Located absolutely in incredible place- directly on the ocean coast...Very romantic, nice staff, friendly and helpful... Yes coz the cleaning women was stolen my money when I was out from the room. She was stollen 40 euro from my pocket but probably it's my fault - to leave money in the room.
The view from our room was the most breathtaking seaside view I have ever seen. It was like being at sea. The staff was incredibly nice, helpful, and solicitous.
the riad was beautiful with a fabulous roof terrace. The room was lovely and the staff could not have been more helpful. We were looking for a relaxing break in stylish surroundings and we couldn't have been happier. Les Terrasses d'Essaouira was an oasis of charm in the midst of the bustle of the medina. Location was superb as it is located close to the sea wall and surrounded by many eateries within short walking distance. We had not had the riad experience before and I couldn't fault this one. Nothing to moan about.
Beautiful hotel, the rooms are very spacious, clean and calm. The tagine we had was amazing, the best we had during our trip, made especially for us, taken in the library, was a real treat! Nice roof terrace. Very helpful staff, always there for you. Really good address, to be recommended. The room we had didn't have a window in the bathroom, which was a shame.
Outstanding terrace on the roof top, very nice breakfast and lovely colonial patio at the entrance.
This was a beautiful and comfortable riad. It was just a few streets off the main action so nice and quiet. The staff was friendly and very helpful. The room was comfortable and quiet. The terrace on the roof is beautiful and has good views. Breakfast can be served on the terrace and was very good. The riad style of the hotel makes it noisy at times. There were children staying in other rooms and were quite loud in the mornings. They only left us one towel for two people but provided a second on request. The desk staff was highly variable in english understanding so knowing a bit of french was very helpful.
Very cosy hotel with great atmosphere. Friendly staff. Beautiful roof terrace. Good to know that not all room have exterior window but a window facing the patio. And no tv. Not at all a problem to us.
delightful staff--good value
location was excellent and roof terrace had great views Place felt dated, dark, unloved and creepy. The staff were helpful but not friendly. Breakfast was basic but good.
Alt !! Kan anbefales på det sterkeste :)
De var flinke til å vaske rommene, minst 2 ganger om dagen. Det tok altfor lang tid til å sjekke ut.
et meget godt hotel.
Flott beliggenhet. Flott svømmebasseng. Hyggelig betjening En misfrståelse ved avreise førte til at bilne vi hadde bestilt ikke hadde plass til fire personer. Dette burde hotellet ha avklart. Vi fikk en ny bil og nådde flyet i Marrakesh likevel.
Bra svømmebasseng, bra balkong. Ellers ikke bedre enn man kan forvente av et hotel av denne standard Traffikert vei mellom hotellet og stranden
Vi likte oss meget bra, positiv og hyggelig atmosfære. Utmerket service, fine solstoler ved stranden. Dusjen på det ene rommet var ikke bra, de reparerte den en gang, så gikk det noen dager, så virket den ikke igjen. Burde nok vært skiftet noen deler. Ellers ltt for langt unna medinaen.
Fantastisk strandområde på 15-20 km. Meget god plass på stranden. Hotellet har egen "privat" strand = inngjerdet areal like nedenfor hotellet. Ved flo sjø er det 50-60 m til sjøen. Muligheter for lange spaserturer på stranda, rideturer med hest eller kamel. Flott for surfing, windsurfing og kiting. Bakgrunnsmusikken i fellesarealet kunne vært dempet litt. Musikk-kollisjon dersom pianisten vra aktiv i pianobaren.
Flott hotell, høflig og hyggelig personal. Mulighet til å slappe av i utsøkte omgivelser.
An amazing hotel - beautiful rooms beyond expectations, great staff, good breakfasts. the highlight of our trip to Morroco.
the room and staff
Hotel and staff were so friendly. Really chiiled enviroment. Our room was fabulous with and amazing bath sprinkled with rose petals and candles! Totally would recomend and go back.
We were greeted by a member of staff who told us everything we needed to know about Essaouira, including a tip for the best restaurant in town - Elizir. We stayed in 2 different rooms - Berber & Hayate. Both were very clean and nicely decorated, Hayate has the biggest bath you've ever seen, almost a swimming pool. Breakfast was fantastic, even included cake!
Great food, beautiful rooms and very friendly and nice staff. Everyday freshly made cake and bread fpr breakfast. The bathroom is only separated by a curtain from the rest of the room.
God internett-tilgang, veldig god frokost (bra at frokost varer til 10.30 når man er på ferie), rikelig med varmtvann, god velkomst med informasjon om stedet, bra daglig rydd/vask, god daglig oppfølging fra eier, mulighet for å låne bøker, tv på rommene, Må kunne betale med kort (personalet på vakt kunne ikke betjene maskin) må ha drikkeglass til alle.
The postion was excellent and the views were stunning. The staff were very friendly and gave excellent service. After 5 days the breakfasts became a bit boring. We had to ask for clean towels twice. There was only 1 hairdryer for 23 rooms and it was broken for 2 days.
vriendelijk onthaal; goede keuken; gezellige sfeer; prima dakterras; smaakvolle originele - zij het wat gedateerde - decoratie; gezellige open haard die klaar was voor gebruik. de afgesloten slaapkamer van de suite (Lakhdar) was muf. Als het raam geopend werd tochtte dit aan het hoofd en was het ook niet stil genoeg.
Jean Gabriel, the owner spent an entire afternoon with me doing an art tour of the old Medina. Wow, what an amazing service! Lovely Riad.
Very welcoming and friendly staff. Beautiful and big rooms.Homely atmosphere. Meals delicious! You will probably not find a better place in Essaouira! Thanks a lot to the host Jean Gabriel.
The sea breeze fish restaurants port lack of hassle from locals
great service, great rooms, great food, great location!
It was the most friendly,helpful place we stayed at and we will go back. We were upgraded to a better room. A cosy intimate dining room with good food for a night in. An artists paradise. A real gem of a place. We liked everything
The staff and owner were really welcoming and helpful and we loved the design of the riad and the decor of the rooms. Breakfast on the terrace was great and one night we ate dinner in the riad which was lovely. Nothing
The Riad was very central, fabulously comfortable and the staff excellent. Jean Gabrielle was very accomodating. Cant recommend this enough. Great library too! Nothing to dislike!
It's without any doubt one of the best places we have ever been. It's the unique combination of the nice Ryad located in a former school, the spacious, well designed and nicely decorated rooms, the roof terrace for breakfast and relaxing, but overall the very kind and helpfull staff. These people really understand how to run a hotel with a completely natural friendliness. Truly exceptional.
The hotel was well presented, basic and very clean. The breakfast was good - standard Moroccan fare. It is a little too far out - 15mins walking but there is nothing around it so to do anything we needed to walk to the medina. On that basis we stayed only one night. We also managed to get a beautiful hotel in town for very little difference in price so we felt as though we paid too much in the end.
Impressive location with extensive views over coast. Hotel was peaceful and attractively decorated and furnished. Staff were discreet and friendly. Special mention for manager Crystelle who was excellent - she was charming and always ready to advise and help.
Management and Staff were excellent and the views from the roof Terrace amazing. Building work going on especially when communal staircase used. Rubble etc in the alley way.
The room had nice decor, and the roof terrace had a good view. There were extensive building works at the entrance, and audible most of the day. The room was very expensive for what it was. The hotel itself had a sterile feel to it.
We had a gorgeous, gorgeous time here over three nights. We stayed in the Pasha, on the terrace, and every morning opened the shutters directly to the sky and the sea. The ginormous bathtub was a real treat, too. Breakfast served on the terrace was a delight -- we had a hard time tearing ourselves away to go explore the medina. Christine and her team are warm and welcoming, were always on hand to give directions and make restaurant reservations, and I'm sure if we had more demands they would have done their best to help. As it was, we were so blissed out we couldn't ask for more!
The location of the hotel could not be faulted. I feel the place could do with an upgrade: it is living off its former glory. Breakfast on the terrace was spoilt by flies and wasps. The staff were (politely) in your face about booking restaurants (every time we saw them). The hotel was overpriced for its quality compared to a cheaper better riad we stayed in in Marrakech.
Everyone was very nice and helpful. It was like staying in someones own home. I am allergic to cats and they are roaming everwhere. Unfortunately, it is not just this hotel. It is the whole country. I should have known that.
The staff at Dar Assalama are amazing! Omar and the other 3 staff couldn't be friendlier, warmer or more accommodating. They really made our stay something special and nothing was too much trouble. They were always offering to make us mint tea, how we were that day, what we had done or if there was anything they could do to help us. The room was spacious, simple and nicely decorated. The lounge and central patio are very attractively decorated and comfortable to sit, relax and just enjoy a cup of tea. A French style breakfast (with Moroccan influence) on the roof terrace was a lovely way to start each day. The Riad is very well located as well. I highly recommend this Riad and doubt you could get better value for money in Essaouira
Very nice and friendly staff. Good location. Nice roof terrace where you could catch the sun and view the ocean. Inisde the old part but within close walking distance from the ocean. The rooms are a bit dark and there are no windows facing the exterior.
Found staff very helpful and polite and made us feel very welcome
great place! great welcome! wish i was there right now! amazing city!thanks !
First of all the staff was fantastic-they did their upmost best to accomondate our every need(welcomed us with some mint tea,explaind where everything was and told us to feel like at home)-very friendly,relaxed atmosphere. The location was a spot on as everything was easily accesible by foot. The breakfast could improve a bit but great other than that.
A taxi transfer was arranged for me and I was met at the entrance to the medina at a very early hour which was very kind. Lovely breakfast and decor. Medina map and information also provided.
Excellent staff and lovely clean, big rooms. Highly recommend.
Principally, the staff- comprising the manager and his assistant- were excellent throughout. They were attentive, went well out of there way to help in any matter. e.g., they kept in contact with us prior to our arrival and met us from the bus we arrived on; when I got a stomach bug on the day we left they were happy top let us stay late in the room and even provided special food for a sore belly. They could not have done more. Very new, nicely designed interior, and extremely clean. Excellent terrace. The kitchen is open use so you can shop and cook yourself, which is an excellent touch- especially for those with kids or on a budget. I would recommend that the hotel gets one or two desktop computers for guest use- saves the effort of sitting in a generally unpleasant room in an internet cafe up the street.
The owners were very friendly and helpfull. Breakfast was great, the room was very nice! The bed was a bit uncomfortable (pilows not soft enough)
Staff very courteous and helpful. Riad very clean and comfortable. Perfect location. Nothing
Nice hotel, friendly staff, good location, good price for location. Recormended for 1-2 nights no more. If you like your peace and quite try and opt for the appartment situated off the roof terrace.
The terrace and the view from it was great. The staff was friendly. I got another coffee each morning. The entrance to the hostel were two wooden planks across a puddle in a very dirty street. This was like being on a building site. There was rubbish everywhere on the street. The room wasn't really clean and it smelled mouldy. The price was above average.
Everything. But we found the staff amazing. They acted like friends rather than staff making us feel comfortable from the minute we walked in the door. We were really sad to leave. The rooms were perfect and breakfast on the terrace great. fantastic value for money. But back to the staff, Lamya, Hisham and Layla- amazing! Would go back in a flash!
The location was good and the staff were very friendly. Room was cleaned frequently. The room did not have any bathroom door or external windows, conseqently it smelt and felt damp.
The girl of the reception was nice. The only yhings where that she brings some friends in for the free internet. It makes it a bit studentlike. There was no good ventilation in the hotel. Our bed was really wet and everything smells like mushrooms, the carpets, the pillows brrrr. The floor was really dirty everywhere. At the end we slept at the roof, with all our clothes on. Wich was at the terras wich looks out on the sea but also on the old houses around with a lot of garbage. We got breakfast on the sofa where just the night porter was asleep. I will never recommend this studenthouse.
The breakfsts were varied and very enjoyable. The price was very reasonable. The lighting in the room was dire. The clothes storing facilities were poor. The hotel was located in the scruffiest part of town.
Peaceful, quiet riad away from the noise of the medina. good breakfast apart from the coffee. Just the coffee. I don't like nescafe.
Nice and charmy atmosphere, friendly staff. Good breakfast.
It's a clean, stylishly decorated hotel, with a nice location in the Medina Like most riads the rooms are quite dark. Internet connection (wifi) only works in main lobby. As there are always quite a few staff and their family (kids) around it's not very private if you wish to make e.g. a skype call.
Quiet,interesting decor,felt safe. Damp nature of room.
Spacious rooms authentically decorated. Staff were very helpful. Copious breakfasts and mint tea on arrival. Terrace with rooftop views.
The people were extremely nice, helpful and the place very beautiful and clean
The artistic superbly decorated environment. Wonderful rooftop terraces to relax on. Inspite of being a smallish place the breadfast service was top class. Aziz the host was welcoming and catered to our every need. Great location - 5 minutes walk to the beach, 2 minutes from all the market streets in the medina. Easily located from taxi to the medina gate. The only thing we didnt like was that we had to leave. I could have lived there it was so wonderful.
Lovely staff and service, right from check in.
We liked the complimentary teas and coffees, we liked the interior design and overall a good stay! We felt all the the breakfast food was fresh it could be a bit more varied and the coffee and tea pitchers available for all guests instead of being placed at one end of table. The design of room was good, it was a bit noisy in room sometimes but in the middle of Medina could not be helped! Perhaps tea and coffee making in room might have been good and some local maps or info in rooms?
