We spent two very happy days here in December at the end of a week's holiday and found it to be the perfect place to relax. The hotel is distinctive - no electricity but apart from not being able to read in bed at night we didn't miss it, being able to hear the sea at night compensated and there... More

Charming and peaceful. The perfect getaway from wifi land. A special base to explore Kaouki and its long quiet beaches. A welcoming team, friendly and helpful. Wonderful home cooked food of your choice eaten by candle light. As you sit in the courtyard watching the world go by you may see a camel, donkey, herd of goats - full of... More

My husband and I had dinner here on the recommendation on our hotel. We were the only diners the first time we came here. The little old man was waiting for us. He quickly lead us inside to our table lit by candles. Our hotel manager told us to get the whole fish. So he let them know inthe morning... More

I'd read about Residence le Kaouki in an article in the Guardian travel section and I thought it sounded absolutely amazing: no electricity, lit only by candlelight, in a rustic, exotic and fairly untouristy location. We decided to go for our first wedding anniversary and it definitely managed to exceed my already high expectations! The hotel is spotless, really beautiful,... More

A beautiful place, that left behind so many impressions in my mind: incredibly tasty, fresh and diverse food - candles burning everywhere in and around the house, every night - spirited encounters with other travelers, young and old, on their own or with a whole family - stories from almost a lifetime in Morocco from lady of the house RoRo...

Wasn't my first time in le Kaouki :) We planned to spend some days in Essaouira for the Gnaoua Festival in may. Le Kaouki was the perfect place to enjoy the city, and go back to calm in the evening in Sidi Kaouki. As usual, the staff makes u feel home right away. Days were spent enjoying the beach body...

I stayedin Le Kaouki for a week in January. We very much enjoyed our stay there. The hotel was very comfortable and clean, the staff was very friendly and the food excellent. A great place to stay during your winter surf trip in Marocco!

Thanks to the Spanish girl who runs a quirky vegetarian cafe in Essaouira we were 'tipped off' to check out Sidi Kaouki - never heard of this place before ... that's what I love about holidays that just happen :) - what a wonderful and charming guesthouse run by one of the most vibrant, energetic, loving and warm-hearted women I've...

This German-, English-, French-speaking lady knows how to comfort her guests. Arriving with a troubled stomach, Mrs. Roro got us back on track with motherly care! Résidence le Kaouki is a cozy, very clean and relaxed place to escape the rush of the bigger cities. Very recommendable for anyone seeking some relaxed days, great food, clean and quiet beaches. Remarkable:... More
