Without a doubt the worst Hammam experience ever. The place is filthy, scrubbing materials, soaps and shampoos of a very low quality and continuously reused. The place was too small for the number of customers which meant sitting around naked on white plastic mould covered chairs. The best part of this 1.5hr experience was coming back to our lovely Riad... More

At the end of a cycling holiday in Morocco I was very much looking forward to a full traditional hammam experience. Having enjoyed 2 previously in a public hammam in Marrakech I knew what to expect. Sadly this failed to deliver in so many ways including basic hygiene. Where to start ..... They took a booking for 3 gents at... More

The staff at this hammam was very clear upfront about what they were offering. So we were not surprised by the difference with the more lush Turkish hammams. However, what we both did not like about the male and female treatments were the dirty rooms we were both in. The floors and walls had lots of stains on them and... More

We were told by our hotel manager that this was the best hammam in Ess although having read the TA reviews I was sceptical. But on his recommendation we went - it was fairly close to the Riad we were staying in (the Wind Palace, very good) - and in summary it was quite good. We paid 350dirham each (about... More

Just had a fantastic hammam here. Real good scrub down and friendly personal service in an atmospheric setting. Okay, it's geared to tourists and more expensive as a result. But the advantage of that is that you get a more personal service and are shown the ropes. My assistant Mohammad was very nice, asked a few friendly questions, but not... More

This review is about men's treatment. It was my 2nd hammam experience in Morocco. The place is small (there are two stone beds for scrubbing, two for massage), not very clean, a bit smelly. Not hot nor warm. Even lying on the stone, it was not warm enough for me. With the same price, you can enjoy nicer hammam.

The guy (Zakaria) who did the massage was very nice and professional. It was a pleasant experience and I am glad I did it. Being in Morocco you must have this Hammam experience. It was very traditional, not like a spa.

It was my first time in a hammam. At first I was a little unsure , to be expected of course. It may not be for everyone, but once you just go with it and take it for what it is, it is actually a great experience. Close your eyes, relax. Simple & enjoyable

First off the flyers around town advertised a 100 DH price including massage. When I got there they said that price was out of date and it was now 170 for a 1hr 15 minute service with massage, all inclusive. But then after paying that I got charged a further 50 DH for the fancy soap. The 1hr15 long service... More

Management response:

Not a Piercing truth !!! First we are sorry that you entered the hammam, that is with an outdated flyer, advertising the FORMULA 10, 45 minute treatment for €10, 110 dhs, to be accurate. So the price is not out of date, the whole formula is replaced by the DISCOVERY FORMULA also for €10. Most people go for the new... More
