We stayed at this place for only one night but would have loved to stay at least a week! 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. The place is... More

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 stayed with a group of 20 adultes and children for a weekend. The staf makes you feel relaxed and you can ask anything. The women who prepared all meals for us were so good in their work, very friendly and they understand big groups well. The villas are clean and well maintained. The swimmingpool is so big you have...

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

All the Estate of Arganeraie was very proud and very happy to receive you, and thank you very much for your kindness during this short stay with us. Many thanks also for your very complimentary comments, and we're really glad you appreciated Moroccan specialties lovingly prepared by our cooks. Hope to see you longer next time .... 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

Our large and boisterous group descended on L'Arganerie in May 2011 and were hosted superbly by Bruno and Cesar. The riads are so tastfully built and decorated and the whole estate is private and very upmarket. This privacy coupled with the chilled out vibe of Essaouira makes for a perfect holiday.

We spent 2 weeks in Morocco in which Essaouira and L'Arganeraie was the last stay of our trip. This is the first time I've really felt I've needed to review a hotel, but our experience here was really not what we had expected based on other reviews and the hotel website. Firstly when we arrived in Essaouira straight off the... More

We greatly enjoyed our stay at L'Arganeraie with our children (13,11,8). Lovely accommodation, beautiful grounds and a really friendly team running things. Great beaches near by. For the first time in ages I finished a summer holiday thinking it was good value.
