The residence is situated in the middle of a favelas. On the trees there are no leaves but colourful plastic bags as in the street. The first impression was not so bad because there is a nice park and nice swimming pool but the owner is very unpolite, asocial and greedy person and the workers very unprofessional. We took for...

My girlfriend and I are working professionals from London. We were looking for a quiet get away for 7 days. I was sceptical of going to Morocco mainly due to my inability to speak French. I came across Domaine de L'Arganeraie in Essaouira and found their website very functional and straightforward. Good pictures, very good descriptions and most important very... More

We just returned from a 2 week stay at this paradise resort 8 km from Essaouira. The stay was a pleasure from all angles; the housing is spacious, clean and very comfortable; the kitchen offers home cooking which means discovering a variety of marrocain dishes twice a day for a decent price if you like; and finally the personel is...

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.

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.
