On a été très bien accueilli. Naïma nous attendait à la porte de la ville et nous a conduit au Riad situé dans un quartier calme, à quelques pas du centre d'activité de la médina. La suite correspondait tout à fait à ce à quoi nous nous attendions. Maison très agréable et très bien entretenue, très bien équipée pour des enfants de 4 et 6 ans !
Zowel Hamid als Naima zijn echt fantastisch lieve mensen. Locals waarbij je je erg op je gemak voelt, direct. Echtheid die we elders op onze reis gemist hebben. Wat het verblijf erg fijn en ontspannen maakte. Het huis is erg zorgvuldig aangekleed. Wij hadden een baby mee en zij heeft het erg fijn gehad… rust en sfeervol. En wat verder vooral ontzettend opviel was hoe enorm schoon alles was, maar dan ook echt alles. Schoner dan thuis :). Er is iemand fulltime aan het schoonmaken. Dat maakt verblijven op deze heerlijke plek perfect. Een volgende keer zouden wij alleen hierheen gaan en niet meer naar de andere plekken waar we geweest zijn. Het is echt een ontzettende aanrader…
Naima was the nicest person we met in Morocco! She made us feel so welcome and so did Hamid. The restaurants she recommened were great and the apartment was a lovely oasis and so comfortable for our family. We recommend this riad without hesitation!
Had a nice stay in a great house and particularly enjoyed the beautiful terrace . I would really recommend the house for a holiday in Essaouira
We had a great stay at Naima's and Hamid's beautiful riad. They are perfect hosts, easygoing, charming and helpful with everything, and the place has a very pleasant atmpsphere. Our favorite place was the roof terrace, sheltered from the wind, full with plants and a small kitchen. We stayed a week with our two small kids, and they loved the room with all the toys. Couldn't be better, and we would definitely stay here again.
We have been on the road for five months straight, so have stayed in a lot of places. I think this one is the best so far. The house is astonishing; imagine the Weasley's house in Morocco and you get some idea. Naima and Hamid are wonderful, warm, and took excellent care of us, from picking us up at the bus station and walking us to the house, to showing us around town and pointing us at the best spots to eat, to handling any reservations we needed - we're rarely felt so at home. Can't wait to go back!
The house is very nicely decorated, and everything you need is available, very closed to market. Absolutely! I would recommend to everyone to stay there. Drissi Family is very helpful and friendly, thanks to you, we had a very comfortable and relaxed holiday, Naima & Hamid thanks for being our friends.
