  • 8.0.Very good

    This Ryad was one of the best that we have stayed at during our trip across multiple cities in Morocco. The room and bathrooms were clean and beautifully furnished. The breakfast was exceptional especially the fruit bowl. Jerome and all the staff were so friendly and welcoming. The only suggestion I have is possibly installing de-humidifiers in the rooms as humidity is high by the ocean and you could feel it in the sheets/clothing but would definitely recommend staying here!

    Beautiful riad, great pricing, wonderful design. Owners are hospitable and spent the time to tell us about the area and recommend places to see and eat at. Amazing rooftop and view from rooftop. Nice breakfast. Really great service and value for money. Only thing that can be improved is the curtains in the room. They are a bit stuffy and smell... need to be aired or replaced. Other than that, a perfect stay. I highly recommend!!!

    A secret oasis in Essaouira's medina

    Beautifully designed and decorated riad, Ryad Lyon Mogador is a secret oasis amidst being in the center of Essaouira's 18th century medina. My room was clean, well-lit, and charminly decorated of soft white and soft light brown colored linens and the traditional tan colored clay walls. The rooftop, also the breakfast area, provides a panoramic view of the medina, sqala, and the Atlantic ocean. Full breakfast consists of eggs, yogurt w/ fruits, msemen (phyllo crepes) w/ honey, semolina bread, assorted jams, freshly squeezed orange juice, and coffee or mint tea. The staff were fantastic! Friendly and helpful w/ recommendations on where to eat and what yo see/do, and accommodating. We left our luggage after check out and came back in the afternoon after more sightseeing. Wished I could've stayed longer!!!

    This was the nicest ryad of all the ryads we stayed at while traveling in Morocco. The bed was especially comfortable and warm, which is of an extra importance in ryads as they normally have no heating and can be chilly at night. The location is good, the terrace view very pleasing, and the morning breakfast has enough of the variety. Would stay again!

    Riad Lyon Mogador hit the spot!

    We stayed for 2 nights in Essaouira and i am very happy that we picked Riad Lyon Mogador. The Riad is spectacularly pretty and well located in the heart of the Medina. We were able to easily walk around the city walls and to the beach and other landmarks in Essaouira. What made the stay really special is the kindness and care from the hosts Jerome and Karol. From the moment we checked in with Jerome, we knew we were in good hands. We got directions, restaurant recommendations and local tips from Jerome which were all fantastic. Another highlight is breakfast on the terrace. Not only is the breakfast delicious, but sitting in the winter sun and getting views over Essaouira are really fab. Jerome stopped by to chat a few times and make sure everything was going well. I cannot recommend a stay at the Lyon Mogador highly enough.

    Everyone Wants to Come Back

    The rooftop is amazing, with 360-degree views that include the ocean. It's one of my favorite breakfast spots in all my (many) travels and also a great outdoor spot for quiet relaxation. Jerome and Karol are kind, helpful hosts. My room was clean and comfortable. And, really, every other guest I met said they want to come back.
