Friendly reception girl, but room was very average. How a superior room can have such a tiny bed I have no clue. Seems a popular place so surely must be worth investing in a new bed to allow a good nights sleep???Also no curtain on skylight/roof light meant sun streams in at 6am. No fan or a\c in room and...

Stayed here for 5 days before going on to Marrakech. Utterly chilled and great service. Also an easy place to find a beer! Wished we could have stayed for longer... Room 26 was brilliant, comfy bed, clean, great decor, plenty of windows and just off the terrace so a short walk for breakfast! Staff were attentive but not fussy, food... More

I have stayed here twice now on my decompression stop after Marrakech and just love it! The location is perfect as you are steps from the main square, oceanviews from the roof at breakfast, and so much great shopping, eating, and exploring just outside the door. The restaurant is amazing. I travel there alone and enjoy so much having my... More

Attentive, professional, multi-lingual staff. Lovely setting in four contingent old Moroccan houses with inner courtyards, terrace overlooking the harbor and beach where breakfast is served. Spacious, well furnished rooms with luxurious linens--ours had a view of the town walls and the beach. Good restaurant, a bevy of charming small 'salons', a hamman, store with local crafts, and the opportunity for... More

We stayed here in the family suite. It was huge - with a room each for the kids and adults, plus a sitting area in the middle. The sitting area in the middle was a little strange as it was around the central courtyard for your level, and so opened up with each floor's central area (hard to explain) but... More

Thank you for your lovely report. Believe me we clean the street in front of our entrance every day and more than that. But don't forget, we live in the Medina with about 70000 people - very concentrated in a small area. The Riad makes you forget the whole medina smell and noise. Regards, Cornelia More

We had not visited Essaouria before so we were not sure what to expect. Villa Maroc had been recommended and lived up to expectations. As did the town itself. The hotel has lots of charm with its quirky stairs and a labyrinth of terraces and public rooms. The dining room is delightful with individual small intimate rooms. The food was... More

This charming hotel was well decorated with antiques and local crafts (loved the Berber camel's hair blanket on the bed) in a perfect location in the Medina, right next to the sea. Intimate, small dining rooms with good food and a nice bar,plus the spectacular views from the rooftop terrace made this a lovely place to stay. We had no... More

We stayed here on our honeymoon a few weeks ago after visiting Marrakech and Oulidia, it was our least favourite hotel of the three we stayed at.
