A boutique hotel that comprises of just six riad style villas, Rebali Riads has the best of both worlds, and its location in Sidi Kaouk to the south of Essaouira is fantastic.
The 18 rooms are spread across six riads surrounding the pool and gardens, ranging from Dar Etoile, the smallest with one bedroom, to Riad Valmar, the largest with five bedrooms. Individual rooms can be rented at the latter, or families or groups can take the whole hog. Three of the riads share a large swimming pool and shallow plunge pool, and the three larger ones have their own private pools. Close to the beach, many of the riads have roof terraces with fantastic views out to the coast.
The food at Rebali Riads focuses on truly Moroccan cuisine, such as tagine, cous cous and fresh fish caught on the doorstep (well, practically). Eat in the dining rooms, by the pool, on the terrace, and those with kitchens can eat what they want, when they want.
Slap bang on the beach, there are plenty of activities available at Rebali. From amazing watersports, exploring by foot or by fetlock - both horses and camels - and zooming around the dunes on quad bikes. Back at the hotel there is a hammam and spa, swimming pool and tennis court.
