Perfectly situated a good stay ,I didn’t anticipate the 4 floors of stairs as we are in our late sixties ,but that’s my fault ! but bear in mind for less mobile people than us.Traditional Riad ,nicely furnished,fine for a short stay.Owner very attentive by phone from France as were the housekeepers,very handy being almost opposite a working bakery with fresh bread all day.Thankyou to Niama and brother.

"The comfortable and nice...

  • 5 of 5

"The comfortable and nice house is situated inside the medina but nearby gate Bab Doukkala. So the place is very easy to reach. And at Bab Doukkala you find busses and taxis. You find also all kind of shops in the streets nearby. Living inside the medina means: Good impressions of arabian everyday life,many opportunitys for nice street scenes in the small alleys. You fear the house could be too noisy, situated in the middle of arabian life? No, it is very silent during the nights, so you can sleep very well. During the day you may hear the sound of playing kids or the shouts of an orange seller, but that will not disturb you. And of course you can shut the window.

What I enjoyed most was the wonderful roof terrace with a fantastic view to the Atlantic sea and the roofs of the medina.Escaping from a hard german winter I found myself under a sunny blue sky full of sea gulls.

It is already much said about the equipment and furnishings of the house by other customers. So I just want to add that you receive a very broad offer of european radio and tv channels by satellite. I received nearly all german channels. And recently you have also internet.

Last but not least: The friendly owner provides you with all kinds of information about wonderful Essaouira. And on the spot Naima, the friendly house keeper, will care about you.

By the way: Essaouira is a very nice seaside town with friendly inhabitants and a charming atmosphere. Perfect for relaxed holidays!"

Despite being in the heart of the vibrant medina, the Riad Otmanyi is a very peaceful house over four storeys with a roof terrace to chill and enjoy the rooftop views and sea air.

Mr. Raymond kindly sent us a whole set of brochures in advance with useful info on restaurant recommendations (including where to expect alcoholic beverages or not), suggestions for excursions, practical tips on shopping, etc.

Naimaa gave us a very nice welcome and sorted everything out without a murmur although we were the ones who got our dates muddled up. She is an extremely pleasant, helpful and discreet presence. We would happily go back there again.

Magnifique séjour au coeur de la médina

  • 5 of 5


Nous avons passé une semaine en famille deux enfants, deux adultes dans ce superbe Riad au coeur de la médina. Tout a été réuni pour que nous passions un agréable séjour.

Ce riad est fabuleusement situé. Il nous a permis de nous affranchir d'une voiture.

Quand nous sortions, nous étions au coeur de la population, de ces fabuleuses ruelles mutlicouleurs , ce super petit restaurant à deux pas du riad près de l'hôtel Bab Doukala, qui nous a concocté de petits tajine maison, les marchés tous les jours, la plage et le port à 5 minutes....

pas besoin de cuisiner, nous avions tout a disposition grâce au bon emplacement du riad.

Essaouira est vraiment une très belle ville ensoleillée. Nous avons pu siroter notre café au soleil dès le matin grâce à la superbe terrasse.

Mr Raymond a vraiment fait en sorte que nous arrivions dans de bonnes conditions et s'est assuré que tout se passe bien. Nous avons pu échanger au téléphone très agréablement.

Naïma a également réagi rapidement en cas de besoin.

Sans hésiter nous y reviendrons pour un prochain séjour à Essaouira.

Beautiful Riad in Essaouira

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful and comfortable house in a great location. The house is in a quiet street within the medina and very close to a main gate for easy transportation. It is also within easy walking distance to the beach and all points of interest in the town.

The house is very nicely decorated and very spacious. As a typical riad it is on multiple floors. The rooms are very comfortable with individual bathrooms and the terrasse is a real bonus. It is very generously equipped and Naima the gracious housekeeper welcomes you and comes on a regular basis to take care of the house.

The owner Mr Raymond is a super host sending extensive information ahead of time about the accommodations as well as about Essaouira and everyday life in town. He is also very attentive calling us when we arrived and before leaving to check on us and make sure we were satisfied. He also arranged taxi reservations for us. Thank you!

A place to come back et recommend without any hesitations.

Un séjour d'exception !!!

  • 5 of 5

Super séjour à Essaouira dans un très beau riad. Nous avons profité avec ma femme et mes 3 enfants des richesses culturelles de la ville et de ses alentours. Le riad est idéalement situé et possède de nombreux atouts dont une terrasse refaite intégralement avec une vue imprenable sur Essaouira. Le propriétaire est aux petits soins et facilite grandement le voyage (réservation du taxi, préparation de repas par la gouvernante, mini guide avec toutes les bonnes adresses,...) Vous l'aurez compris, je vous recommande vivement d'y aller.
