Wonderful interior design, a location to die for within the ramparts of beautiful old Essaouira and the azure seas of Morocco in abundant view, all help make the Madada Mogador a rather special place to stay. If you don’t take our word for it, just see what guests tend to say. “Fabulous”, “Superb”, “Special”.
The price is pretty special too considering what it has to offer, and that is an effortless combination of traditional Moroccan decor with modern, streamlined, almost retro, design. The first design hotel in Essaouira is done in such a way that as soon as you pass the blue door and go up the stairs the feeling is one of utter peace and “Zen”.
With only five rooms and two suites (see below), all abundantly large with en-suite bathrooms featuring large ivory baths and double hand basins, there’s no chance of overcrowding either. It even smells great, with the fragrance of the fresh flowers placed carefully every day all pervading.
Who to congratulate for all this? The laurels must go to Christine Dadda who has dedicated her time and energy to making every detail a special one. Great finishes, the right furniture in the right places and delicate tones of beige and sand enhance the space to create that peaceful ambiance we’ve talked about.
Then, of course, there’s the breathtaking terrace with views of the seafront to die for. They really are special and that alone would almost make a stay here almost worthwhile, but there’s so much more on offer here. Last, but certainly not least, there’s the charm of Christine, who welcomes guests with wonderful hospitality and style. It all adds up to elegant chic a la Morocco and an excellent value for money stay.
