Imagine Moroccan charm with Swiss management and you have a winner. Villa Maroc could easily start giving work shops on hospitality. It´s very tastefully presented and has been taking care of its guests with success for more than twenty years. They must be doing something right. The breakfast is to die for and no it´s not a boring buffet. The... More

Very quiet, very efficient in all areas - reservation (directly with the hotel), checkin, meals, housecleaning, bar, check out, transfers. Perfect spot in Essaouira, inside the quietest part of the medina, with a view to the ocean.

We have stayed in villa maroc over the holidays.Everything was done properly. The room was good and everything was clean.The highlight was the breakfast served on the rooftop of the hotel. The hotel lacks charm and hospitality. It does the job but no more.

We spent 2 nights in the Villa Maroc last year and I have been wanting to write a Review of our stay, for some time but life gets in the way. I booked a surprise holiday for my husband and I to visit Marrakech, Essaouira and lastly the Atlas mountains. The entire holiday was simply one to always remember and... More

I just spent my first Christmas on my own, away from home, in the wonderful surroundings of the Villa Maroc. I couldn't have chosen a better base! Cornelian the owner & her staff were all extremely welcoming, helpful & friendly, making it a truly memorable trip. The rooms were beautiful with lots of attention to detail throughout the Riad, such... More

As per the title is still good but now has a lot of others to compete with! Breakfast was good with choice of eggs etc....the Hotel could do with updating! Do spend a day out at their country place Jardin Villa Maroc, where you can spend time by the pool and have a barbecue lunch..

Stayed here for two nights with friends occupying 3 rooms. All were nicely furnished and spacious, considering this hotel is a series of old houses joined together. Staff was very flexible and accomodating. Steps to all of the city's sites and the beach. Only downsides: bees (there for many months) swarmed guests having breakfast on the roof, and there are...

My husband and I drove direct from Casablanca to Villa Maroc upon our arrival, which took about 4 hours. We were delighted with our room in the tower; the bathroom and living area were downstairs, while the bedroom was upstairs. Great views all around from the room as well as from the roof-top terrace. Breakfast was included with our stay... More
