Guestbook comments from the owner

Riad Caro is a wonderful, welcoming (and far more stylish than my) home from home in the centre of bustling Essaouira old town. The luxury of having a bed and bathroom on every floor and the highest roof terrace in town was met only by the luxury of having fresh orange juice, roses, pastries and mint tea delivered to us every morning by the completely wonderful Said who is on hand to arrange airport pick-ups, show you around town and draw extremely detailed maps.

Riad Caro is a beautifully made and maintained oasis of calm and a must-visit destination in Morocco.

Great Experience

  • 5 out of 5
We were met at the bus station by Sandra, who brought us to the riad in the heart of the medina and also gave recommendation on restaurants and things to do. The property was clean, spacious and and well furnished. Every morning the maid would come to prepare breakfast and do the cleaning. We had four wonderful relaxing days and have great memories of our dtay in Essaouira and the riad

Super chic house great location

  • 4 out of 5
Can't recommend this Riad enough!

The caretaker was very helpful and met us at the gates of the city and led us 5 minutes through the labyrinthine streets of Essaouira right to the door of the property. Upon entry you are taken aback by the epic height and brightness of the central light well which rises up 4 floors from the foyer. Really quite magnificent! We were greeted with mint tea and cookies on arrival and given a map of the best restaurants etc. The property is incredibly tastefully decorated and has a beautiful kitchen and nice bathrooms. The Sitting room is really cosy and lovely and the beds were very comfortable. The maid makes a lovely breakfast each morning which we had on the roof terrace which has incredible views over the whole city and you can even see the ocean.

Overall it was a superb experience all around and gets my full recommendation.

Fab riad!

  • 4 out of 5
What a fab house, right in the middle of Essaouira. Decor was in keeping and we had a lovely lady pop in to give us fresh orange juice and breakfast every morning.
Would definitely recommend this riad.

Owner's Response: Thanks so much, we try to make it feel like home from home, but I think a little bit of luxury in the morning is always a good way to start the day! I am so pleased you loved the house, I hope you also loved Essaouira as much as we do. It is a special home in a really magical town.

This charming riad, conveniently located for shops restaurants or just wandering down to the port, is beautifuly decorated. The approach is a little scruffy by Western standards, but that's Morocco. The description regarding location and facilities was accurate. It is well maintained. The charming maid provided breakfast each day. It is important to find out the good restaurants: they are not expensive. I would certainly recommend the property to a friend: indeed have done so.
