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

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. Villa Maroc is beautiful and very nicely decorated, however parts of our room felt a bit tired and the shower was terrible. I don't know if this is because our room was on... More

We spent an amazing few days here with friends. The host organized a party in a tent on the field next to the house and we had an incredible night under the stars in perfect Maroccan style. The house is a typical construction with absolutely everything in perfect style - one feels projected back in time here, also because everyone... More

We had an amazing experience in Essaouira. The hotel was charming, had a great atmosphere, and vert spectacular breakfast served rooftop. The only downside of the stay was finding the hotel entrance on one of the outer alley ways of medina. However, once inside we felt welcome and warm from the fireplace that was regularly stoked by the staff and... More

Thank you very much for your kind report. We are pleased that you enjoyed your stay at Villa Maroc. Dear traveler, the most interesting thing about staying in a Riad is the contrast between inside and outside. Riads are medina houses, outside you have this very oriental medina life and inside you feel like in a oasis - away from... More

We had amazing stay in the hotel. The decoration and staff was excellent. The Breakfast is really good and you can get a good masaje as well. The views from the terrace are so nice you can see all the beach. Hopefully we´ll go soon again.
