In between hostel stays, Chris and I treated ourselves to a night in the Riad Lalla Mogador, in the city Essaouira. It's actually priced really reasonably and just feels like a treat!
*please be patient during photo upload - I've specially uploaded higher-res images so you guys get extra detail! :)
Our room was very authentic and the furnishings reflected the craft/artisan trade that flourishes in Essaouira
Outside our room
Traditional Moroccan homes have no roof in the center, and an open courtyard area in the middle.
The second floor halls
Looking up from the second floor
Plenty of nooks to relax
You take your brunch on the roof, which has some great views - see the beach in the back?
See lots more gorgeous photos at their site, http://www.riadlalla-essaouira.com/
