It's a great place to stay. The rooms were big and nice and so was the complete staff. For breakfast it was fantastic to sit on the roof with great sight over Essaouira. The beach is perfect for kit surfing, but because of the wind not to good for kids.

I'm not normally a fan of small B&B style hotels but this is different. It seems like a small, gorgeous hotel rather than a B&B (or 'riad'). The rooms were lovely. The breakfast was perfect on the rooftop terrace, with gorgeous views of the beach. It was also located in the old town so was walking distance to the medina,... More

This was not our first stay at Villa de l'O, we had stayed there a few years back. We fell I'm love with the place then, and we're eager to return! The owner has changed, but we remain extremely happy with the Riad, the staff is fantastic, and the rooms are great. We will most definitely return! One small thing... More

VIlla de L'O is one of the best hotel in Essaouira in my opinion. Its perfect position is in the Medina (but away from the noisy part), facing the sea and perfect to park the car. The breakfast on the roof is incredible, great comfort, and very very good staff. Sophie at the reception is a star and knows well... More

This is a beautiful Riad positioned just behind the walls of the vehicle free Medina. Parking is close by and safe. The villa has a wonderful old colonial feel about it and has been lovingly restored and decorated with nostalgic old pieces and wonderful photographs on canvas of typical Moroccan scenes. The rooftop has vistas of the sea as well... More

One of the best places we have ever stayed. Unique decor with buckets of character. Stayed in a number of their rooms and they are all amazing. Can't recommend it highly enough. Staff very helpful and breakfast on the roof is to die for

A little late, but my wife and I stayed here in late October 2013 for our honeymoon. Villa de l'O is a beautiful, calming place and the rooms are so wonderfully designed. We stayed in l'Oxalis, which was amazing with a huge bath, then we stayed one extra night at the end and moved into the l'Odyssee (which was also... More

We stayed here for five days during our honeymoon. It really is a beautiful hotel - we loved the quirky little touches such as old telescopes and marine paraphernalia that really remind you that you're in a seaside town with a rich history. The rooms are stunning. We were in the amazing and spacious L'Opium, with its magnificent views out... More

My partner and I recently stayed at Villa de L'O for 3 nights and had a wonderful stay. Would definitely recommend it (and the Hammam) and return if we find ourselves in Essairoura again. Clean rooms, very friendly staff, beautifully decorated and in a great location. It has a lovely "chill out" room where we drank red wine and played... More

I really enjoyed my stay at Villa de l'O. It is very cosy and the room I stayed in (l'Obe) was very spacious and cosy. The food is very good. However, the one con with the food is that they serve the same food for lunch and dinner, which is fine but i have never met anyone willing to eat... More
