First you have to be aware that this is a bigger hotel, so do not expect the same experience as you would in some of the lovely intimate riads that you may have stayed in elsewhere in Morocco. That being said, we had a very pleasant stay at the Le Medina. We chose it because we wanted a hotel with... More

We stayed 4 nights in a room looking at the ocean. Location is indeed great, in front of the sea and 5 minutes walking distance to the Medina. We experienced inconsistent service : good service with 1 person in front desk at the beginning of our stay, making our restaurant reservation, organising us a camel tour. The medina tour organised... More

The hotel is in a very good spot, directly over from the beach while still being only a 2-3 minute walk from the medina. The rooms were really very nice, what lets this hotel down is slow and often elusive service, poor quality overpriced food and bar, and a genuine lack of atmosphere for a resort hotel and it's got...

Nice rooms, wonderful bed and very good breakfast. Close to the Medina at the beach. Only negative remark on pool not heated and water too high concentration of chlorine. Nice indoor salt water pool after 7pm though.

After 4 nights in a riad in Marrakech this was a really good contrast. Our room was overlooking the pool with the best and most comfortable bed I have ever slept in. We had excellent breakfasts by the pool every day. In the main hotel restaurant the menu was too restricted and chilly from the aircon. It would have helped... More

Having recently done a two stay holiday in Marrakech and Essaouira with the second leg at Le Medina we were devastated after discovering we had left our camera by the pool and that it was not there nor had it been handed in after realising it was missing. It never occurred to us that this would be the case. This... More

We stayed at Le Medina for one night only on arrival into Essaouira until our hotel for the remainder of our stay was ready. We had been travelling for hours from Marrakech and were very tired so settled on this hotel as it seemed like an easy option! The staff were immediately very welcoming. The decor is smart but the...

We decided to move across from (the not so nice) Marrakesh to the subtle, serene splendor of Essaouirra and stayed at the majestic Le Medina. The staff were overly diligent and the location was also very impressive, overlooking the sea. We did not eat here as we would rather try the local cuisine but one could certainly feel the overwhelming... More

Very well located right in front of Essaouira bay and just a step away of the medina walls, this hotel still offers very good confort though it's growing age. We were really surprised how well the wifi worked at the balcony of our room or at the big lounge room. Very welcoming staff, surveilled parking car just in front.
