I've always thought that the perfect holiday accommodation should feel like home from home. It is as Riad Remmy down to a 'T' except you get all the extras like fab breakfast, ever efficient room cleaning and a tour of the area. Thank you Sandra and Stu for your perfect, friendly yet unobtrusive hosting. I'll recommend you and i shall be back.



- Nat.UK - Aug 2011

Riad Remmy truly made our stay in Essaouira beautiful. Our 2 night stopover was just enough to see, taste and smell the delights of thi town. Without Stu's advice and directions we surely wouldn't have seen half as much as we did.


Thank you Sandra and Stu, we will remember your superb hospitality and can only hope someone else will replicate your charm as we continue our world travels. A high bar has been set. We wil thouroughly recommend you on our blog


PS - Try Taros, not only for a drink and the view, but also for a perfect sunset, a delicious meal, great service and some nightly live music.

- Waldu & Nicole. S.Africa & Australia - Aug 2011

Thanks for a fantastic 3 nights stay San. It was everything we expected from Trip Advisor and more. The riad has been excellently decorated, modern yet Moroccan. San's welcome, tour, map, friendliness and conversation all made for a great stay.


We'd say you must eat at Le Patio ( a bit expensive but more than worth it). Fish Grills number 14 and La Cantina (home made desserts to die for).

Finding this jewel, Riad Remmy, in the derbs of the frenzy of the medina is the best thing that you can hope!

Thanks Sandra, we're waiting for you in Barcelona too. Lots of kisses.

- Raquel & Kike (Barcelona, Spain) Aug 2010

Thank you so much for a great stay. We were in much need of a place to stay at such short notice and Riad Remmy surpassed all expectations.

She is helpful and her knowledge of Essaouira is second to none. If only there was a Sandra everywhere we visited! Thanks.

- Finn & Mike (London & Northampton) Aug 2010

So pleased to have come back to see the finished Riad Remmy (so glad it now has a name). It really has turned out amazing, a credit to you all. All of San's recommendations were as good as ever.

At the risk of sounding like everyone else, thank you so much for having us stay in Riad Remmy.


Stu you were right, we did end up staying a lot longer than expected! It's been a great place for an intro to kite surfing, but by far the best thing about Riad Remmy are the people running it. You have both been very hospitable, kind and let us feel at home in this family riad. 


San, sorry about the early morning breakfasts but when Remmy is old enough we recommend Club Mistral (ask for Hamid or his brother) for kite surfing.

Thank you for your hospitality, help and friendship over the last seven days. Riad Remmy and Essaouira far exceeded our expectations and we had a great chilled holiday. We definitely recommend quad biking for an opportunity to really get off the beaten track.

The riad is absolutely marvellous! You showed us all the hotspots in Essa. Thanks for everything we had a great time and we'll definitely come back.

We had a great time in Essaouira. The stay at the riad did add to our well being. The tranquility, peace, quietness and of course or wonderful hosts.

Could not have asked for a more delightful end to a fantastic trip. This place is a fairytale from floor to sky, and the people have been a dream. Stu & San are fantastic hosts, not to mention loving their company as well. Best wishes.

A beautiful little place run by my good friend Stu. A few hours west of Marrakesh on the ocean, check it out if you're planning on heading over that way.. Numerous companies run budget flights to Marrakesh from UK and Spain.

Riad Remmy is the most beautiful place in Essa. A perfect base from which to explore all that Essa has to offer!
