      We had a strange experience at this Riad, ending with a dispute about payment. The rates paid were the highest I have come across in Morocco, and this is my third visit to the country. However, the room was the smallest I have ever stayed in, with my friend and I having to take turns in getting up as there was not enough floor space to get dressed at the same time. I know it was February, but the towels and sheets all felt damp - and unlike other Riad's the traditional blow heater / air conditioner was non existent. Extra blankets were not provided and we all felt freezing cold most of the time. A good service was the breakfast which is among the best I have had in Morocco. Unfortunately the staff felt it was a good idea to throw all the windows wide open just before we sat down, and the sight of other guests wrapped in coats and leg blankets became the norm. The main advantage of this riad is the view and the location. Photos and other reviews are correct in praising the dining room and roof terrace for amazing views of the crashing surf. Despite this, I would not recommend this riad. Only because of the unfortunate departure. We were told that we could only pay in Euros, which was fine - but the card machine was incapable of taking this payment. The man in charge insisted that I made the conversion from Euros to MAD myself, which I was not comfortable with. He got quite angry and said that surely we made the conversion every day as we went around Morocco. I tried to explain that the UK does not use the Euro but this was not understood. I offered to pay in MAD cash, but again he said Euro only. A disappointing end to a cold damp stay.....

    • Charm!

      The old charm & beautiful antiques in this Riad, not to mention the convenient location, make it a hidden gem. Roof top views of the surf as the Riad built into the ancient city walls. Go to sleep to the bounding surf. Gorgeous breakfast/sitting room overlooking the ocean. Rooms cozy. Staff VERY helpful and even did a wine run for us so we could have HH. Walk outside & you are instantly transported to the past through narrow alleyways that turn into delightful shops mid day! Would DEFINATELY recommend.

    • Riad in Essaouira

      Loved this gem of a Riad in Essaouira. Rooms are well appointed, with comfy beds and storage. Bathrooms are well equipped with plenty of hot water & hair dryers. The breakfast. Included, was excellent ... good coffee, fresh juice & fruit, fresh pastries & yogurt. Located along the Atlantic, the Riad Kafila has a lovely rooftop deck with fantastic views of the rocky coast. I highly recommend this Riad & it's very accommodating staff!
