After being some what skeptical about traveling to Morocco, Villa De l'O was a welcome surprise! Nestled in the medina with a view out over the Atlantic it provides a comfortable escape from the hustle and bustle. Excellent staff who couldn't do enough to help. Breakfast on the rooftop terrace is a must!

We booked here to escape our Dar L debacle. The room we had was excellent - a first floor too. No view but the room was large, comfortable and very clean. Furnished with taste and flair. Bed was super comfortable and the bathroom was large - shower was huge. Breakfast - on the rooftop terrace, was excellent. All the staff... More

We were under the impression we had booked a suite which it indicated on our voucher. The first room we were shown did not even have a chair! The second room with a view to the Medina e.g a blank wall certainly did have chairs one broken, but the lighting was so poor that we could hardly see. Worst problem... More

Our party stayed here for three nights and it was great. A lovely Riad just inside the walls of Essaouira. Our room had a super view of the beach and the surrounding area. The restaurant was excellent and the staff very attentive. Would recommend this riad to anyone.

Stayed for weekend in the suite on the terrace. Absolutely fabulous - wonderful room, amazing views. Felt like we had the place to ourselves. Service lovely, all very friendly. Breakfast was fine, and the view from the terrace made it all perfect anyway. Wifi awful outside of the reception area but that imposed its own disciplines and relaxation.

This was a fabulous hotel to stay in! We ended our two-week Moroccan trip with a two-night stay in Essaouira. After a wonderful, but exhausting vacation with our two teenage sons and my parents, this hotel was a wonderful place to relax. Located just inside the walled city, Villa de l'O was within walking distance to all the sites and... More

This Riad is extremely well located in the center of Esaaouira. Walking distance from everything. Not on the beach though. It is luxurious and beautifully decorated with Moroccan refinement. Service is attentive and warm. Overall a very nice experience.

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
