Flying into Essouira was so easy, and we were in Sidi Kaouki in 15 mins with Rebali Riad as our base and wow…. what a gem! with a heated pool, tennis court, table tennis, resident turtles and a team of friendly hosts, led by the delightful Fatima and Mohammed. We explored Essouira, souks, ramparts, the harbour, beach walks and enjoyed lots of delicious food, including Rebali home baked cakes, pastries and the breakfasts/evening meals were excellent. Self catering was an option too. Sidi Kaouki was a brilliant base. Big skies, spring sunshine, huge waves, miles upon miles of golden sand beaches plus ever changing dunes. A real highlight was horse riding with Equievasion through argon forest, salt marsh, dunes and beach. I booked this in the UK after rave reviews by Tourdust and Mohammed at Rebali, via email. It was the most fantastic riding experience. Jawad was the perfect host; rightly very proud of his 18 Arab stallions, all of whom were treated with upmost care and respect. Well managed horse yard with space, good feed and care for his horses. We galloped for miles along the deserted beach. We are keen riders at home & this ride was brilliant.
We wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Rebali Riads & Equievasion. It was a perfect holiday.

We loved our accommodation and thank Rebali Riad for the riad upgrade! The use of a heated pool in winter was a big bonus. We played tennis and ping-pong and went for a very long walk on the beach. We bought food in Essaouira and cooked in the riad. Also, thank you so much for all the attentions on the day of my birthday, February 9th. The cake was the best I ever had! It made it a very special day I will remember for a very long time. Loved it so much we want to return next winter for a week long family reunion!

Superb. The accommodation at Rebali is magnificent in its low-key luxury. Breakfasts and dinners are excellent. But above all, the service is absolutely outstanding in its friendliness and solicitousness. This goes from top to bottom – from Mohammed in his managerial role where nothing is either too small or too big, through Fatima and her warm manner and her detailed care of housekeeping, via Selima whose cheery looking after us was much appreciated, through to Hassan in the gardens and Habib with his smiley lighting of our fire. And the same goes for all the others!

We were all impressed with the excellent service we received at Rebali.The riad was extremely comfortable. The food was divine. The staff were friendly, efficient, and helpful. We would have no hesitation in recommending to any of our friends (and we already have).
Please pass on our thanks to all the staff for making our holiday so fabulous, in particular, the Manager and assistant Manager. They are both an asset to Rebali.
The information provided at Reballi was very comprehensive and all of it was more than helpful and the recommendations were top notch.

Villa was lovely, we loved the social mint tea and cake to share ideas with other guests. The food quality was outstanding at a great price and my children loved trying all the new foods. Mohammed and Fatima were very welcoming and keen to talk and give you tips and advise about their country. Loved that you could just chill on the roof terrace reading but there is enough activities available if you wanted them. It really was a great Christmas for us as a family and as I say we are already talking about going back, it’s a gem of a place.

Amazing! Mohammed and Fatima were brilliant. My wife had a slipped disc on her back while on holiday and Mohammed and the team did all they can to make her stay as enjoyable as possible despite her bad back.
Definitely do the stargazing above the riad!

Thought Rebali was excellent with a v good cook which was such a treat; Mohammed was incredibly helpful with all we wanted to do and all the staff were exceptionally friendly.
It was a shame the sea was so murky at Rebali because we had the most incredible rain on the Sunday which didn’t make the surfing too appetising! The quad biking was fantastic fun and the highlight of our entire trip; clients should not be put off on arrival at Rebali as it is in the middle of nowhere – Rebali is a relaxing and peaceful haven; we did a 14km trek in the Atlas Mtns which was very informative and I would highly recommend Morocco as a destination with all it has to offer – it is so different! We went to the Caravan Restaurant in Essaouira (recommended by Mohammed) which was excellent.

Reballi Riads, Dar Medava, great accommodation , really welcoming staff, great food, trip out to buy and prepare our meal was fantastic, thank you chef. A few bits of maintenance would help to keep it in top condition- a few lights out, leaking sink in the kitchen. The DVDs and games were appreciated. Cake and tea in the afternoon was a nice touch.

Rebali Riads were amazing. The villa itself was first class and exceeded our expectations. Mohammed and Fatima ( and all the staff) were very attentive and went out of their way to make sure that our stay was exceptional. Would definitely return.
