We loved spending the last days of our vacation in this lovely beautiful Domain. Helene and Jean Pierre are very friendly and helpful and the food is also great. We spend most days at the swimmingpool (25m!) but also went to Sidi Kaouki and Essaouira which is both an easy drive. We saw some notes about the place being difficult... More

We stayed here for two nights in late October with our 7&8 year olds, who loved the donkey and tortoise living in the grounds. The pool area is amazing, the pool was a little chilly for the time of year but I imagine it would be a perfect chill out in the summer months...it is worth noting that the lovely... More

W've been to the Arganeraie for a short break. We loved the spaceful rooms, the clean and peaceful atmosphere and the warm yet professional service. Children enjoyed the swimmingpool (september) and the large garden. Breakfast and meals were good. We'd definitly go back there and recommand the place. Thank you.

We were a group of 18 people on a tour on the Atlantic Coast.The hotel is formed by ten different villas very well furnished and immersed in a gorgeous park of argan trees, with a great swimming pool.

A bit far from Essouira (10mn by taxi), this is "L'Arganeraie", an oasis of silence and beauty... 10 lux and confortable riad for 8/10 persons on a really nice Domain (trees, green grass, turtle... and ute swimming pool). Helful, smily and available french & local staff. Nice breakfast. Thank you.

This is a great place for families. We stayed here for a week and loved it. The Riads are very nice, not luxurious but spacious and well furnished with nice outdoor spaces. The garden and the staff are lovely and the pool is huge and perfect for kids. The Domaine is about 10 minutes drive from Essaouira (don't be put... More

We loved our (too) short stay at Arganeraie. As some of the reviews point out, it is some way from Essaouira and it is down a dirt track, but if you are looking for somewhere to chill out, relax, eat good food and drink wine, then this place is perfect. We had two nights in Arganeraie and then a couple... More

Perfect, is the only word I can think of! This gorgeous riad has been decorated with such a good taste, and our room had the most incredible view on the coast and the Island of Mogador! It is so quiet and relaxing. You feel at home as soon as you arrive. I do highly recommend having dinner there, too! A... More

We travelled in a large group driving classic cars, and L'Arganeraie was our final stop and the venue for our end-of-tour party. Bruno, Cesar and their staff were so incredibly accommodating, from organising parking for our cars at the Golf Club and massages back at the hotel, to planning horseriding excursions and taking us into the old town. The food... More
