    We appreciated the food and service. We were lucky enough to get junior suite for normal prices. The hotel was centrally located for travelling through Essaouira...

    Design is very nice, location is great - we left our car on the public parking outside pedestrian area and it was easy to find Riad, and also not far (important when you carry luggage). The manager (i think it was him) was extremely helpful with organizing everything we asked for.

    Our room didn't have "outside" windows - all our windows were looking to the inside corridor of Riad itself - we would have appreciated fresh air!

    Convenient even ideal location in the medina.

    Breakfast just bread and jam every day got boring, would have liked more variety. Wifi only worked in a very restricted area of the hotel. Rather dark inside and roof terrace though available was not used for breakfast. No written information on hotel or local services. Sink that was almost blocked and warm water a bit unpredictable for showers in the morning. Still we basically liked it, staff were friendly and helpful.

    The staff were great. They made the stay truly enjoyable. From the moment we arrived we felt welcome. They were only too happy to help with any questions we had and made reservations and enquiries on our behalf. They even arranged a surprise birthday cake for my friend that they served on the terrace.

    This was our first time at a Riad, which turned out to be far more charming than a hotel. The staff was very friendly and helpful.The facilities and rooms were practical and clean. Everything functioned as it should. We were in Essaouira in late December, when night temperatures approached 13 C, and it was easy to warm up rooms. Breakfast was nice, Moroccan-Continental style. Very central place, still very quiet at night. Wi-fi free, although only available in or above dining room. Nice dinner in the restaurant, although at little higher prices than in nearby restaurants.

    There are many narrow stairs and no lift: not recommended for people with disabilities.

    The location was great. 2 minutes from the port and beach, in the medina. It's also easy to find unlike many others. The owner happily helped make arrangements for my onward journey, and it was the first place I had stayed in where english was spoken (as well as french). Helpful for the non-french speakers.

    The staff, particularly the managers were very helpful and quite friendly.

    Children of other guests were allowed to run around making loud noises early in the morning. The shower was less than satisfactory.

    The highlight of our stay at Riad Mason Du Sud was the town of Essaouira. The Riad was in an excellent central location. It was very easy to get there from the bus station with the help of the porters that await you. We were right in the center of the Medina with shops and restaurants all around. The common rooms and the roof top terrace were very nice. Also it is one of the few Riads that offers in room safes and locking doors. Credit cards were excepted and the front desk was helpful with maps, restaurant recommendations, and directions.

    The Riad was a bit musty and damp. Our room lacked a window to outside and since the courtyard had been roofed over there was no air circulation. The roof top terrace was lovely but there were yoga classes being held there that forced guests to remain in a small portion as all of the furniture was moved to accommodate yoga. It was a bit of a challenge to get a table for four for breakfast and we thought the breakfast to be mediocre. This Riad was written up in Frommer's and was reported to have bikes as well as a bar neither which was on site.
