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.

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.

We really enjoyed our stay here. It is a beautiful setting and the place is very relaxed in every way. The swimming pool was a great size and the pool area in general was lovely. The staff were all very friendly and helpful and Philippe, the manager, couldn't have been more charming and genuinely interested in making sure we were... More

Just spent a week at this place with friends and families. We were all very disappointed with the place and spent a full day trying to find another place to move to at the last moment. Unfortunately, all the other riads with pools were already booked by then so we ended up staying. First, they told us we had 6... More

L'arganerie is 8km from essaouirea town, a cheap taxi ride and one you'll be glad you took!. It's a magical place, the stunning majestic riads pepper the beautifully well kept grounds( with tortise!!), the main house with pool are in the middle of the property, it's a sight to behold. The staff here are exceptional and the food is scrumptious,... More
