About Riad Mimouna

The Riad Mimouna is a well-established riad-style hotel located on the northwest corner of the Medina. This property will appeal to those of you wanting a  traditional style combined with good levels of service; this is the only Riad directly in front of the ocean! From the roof terrace there is a full panorama of both the rugged coastline and Essaouira's medina.

The Riad Mimouna is near the "Squalla" quarter of the medina and is built into the remains of the first big flour mill in Essaouira, which dates from 1896. Nowadays this hotel has beautiful carpets throughout, splendid views of the sea and the medina, ceilings of fragrant thuya woods, beautiful salons and a sunny terrace over the Atlantic.
