After an exorbitant charge for gin and tonics elsewhere wr happened on this Hotel and restaurant so had not booked. Fabulous meal with brilliant service in a stunning location , do not visit Essaouira without visiting here for authentic Morrocan food experience.

We booked this Hotel at the last moment after changing our plans. The information and photos on the Hotel website suggested our stay would be quite special. We were not disappointed. After a three night stay at a large modern hotel further along the promenade it was a real treat. The location was ideal being so close to the Medina... More

The hotel is quite beautiful, with a subtle maritime theme to its decor, lots of rich wood, and altogether warm and inviting. Our room was very attractive, but quite small -- and the bathroom sink provided nowhere to place one's toiletries while using them. We were in a room which gave out directly onto the rooftop, and breakfast was laid... More

Well located but with good ocean views. Just inside the medina. We had a quiet indoor facing room, a bit small but adequate. Breakfast on deck was great. Lounge area was historic and luxurious. Staff were outstanding. Sitting in central courtyard area was a treat.

A beautiful traditional style riad with gorgeous dark wood and stone in the old Portugese style. The rooms are divine with linen curtains, beautiful comfortable beds, great showers, TV etc and they all open onto to the fabulous internal balconies. The place is filled with antiques and very stylish. The food was lovely, warm chocolate pastries for breakfast who could... More

When we first arrived we were allocated a standard room. It was small and whilst it had everything we needed it had only a small window that opened onto the inner courtyard. This meant the room was very dark and hot and felt like a prison cell. We asked to be moved to a better room and as there was... More

Charming and luxurious boutique Hotel. Rooms are differently decorated but all beautiful and very clean. Very nice sea view from the terrasse, especially at sunset. Service is attentive and staff extremely courteous like Sofia with the beautiful smile at reception.
