This place is just great! A 1 km dirt road brings you to the lodge and it feels very remote! We booked a villa with a private pool. A big clean house and very well maintained. The breakfast and lunch was good, we didn't have dinner there because there wasn't anything going on. A bit of a shame since the... More

We continually had to ask for things to be done, given no information about the lodge and also our room was not cleaned on some days. To add to being in the middle of nowhere we... More

From the start everyone we met, from check in to room cleaners and especially the breakfast guys at the bar were so friendly and helpful we felt that they really wanted us to have the best time. The gardens are amazing, the transfers prompt and convenient, the Hammam was... More

Fantastic hotel, very helpful friendly staff, away from it all but free shuttle bus anytime you wanted to head into town. We were given an upgrade due to slight issue with our room. Would highly recommend to couples and families. Thankyou Essaouria Lodge! :-)
