4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

Hosts were welcoming and helpful. They listened to our comments and were understanding, even offered us a different room to accommodate our needs. However we were there during off season so this probably can’t always be expected. Hint: if you are a light-sleeper mention this when booking a room, as we were placed in a lovely "tower" Sea View Suite... More

We were mainly staying in the sister hotel (Les Jardins) but decided to have one night here in the medina for variety. Particularly notable is that the staff are very friendly and helpful. However, the room itself was very average and certainly in need of modernisation: Small, no AC and the window shutters were broken so could not actually be... More

Stayed at Le Jardin, which is like a county retreat belonging to Villa Maroc. It was quiet and peaceful and the food was divine...homemade Maroccan cuisine. We were the only ones staying and the service was fantastic as was the pools. No hassle for driver to shuttle us in and out of town for shopping and sight seeing.

Quaint guesthouse/riad with exceptional details throughout the entire property. The guest rooms are beautifully furnished with local art and craft pieces - you almost feel like you're staying in a comfortable museum. Throughout the riad, there are 'amuse les yeux' - little tasty feasts for your eyes, from the unexpected fresh flowers perched in a pitcher on a table, to... More

I can't rate this accommodation highly enough and really wish there was a sixth star as it was really that good. From the moment we arrived we were made to feel so welcome by the waiting staff in the restaurant and served a delicious meal. The hotel arranged transfers for us from Marrakech after our flights from Dublin. Incredibly long... More

Cornelia and her team have put everything in place to make you feel comfortable and enjoy days passing by. The central location is ideal and all you need within reach - even the muezzin though... We will come back!

The hotel was absolutely fantastic, with room that were cozy and comfortable. Each hidden corner of the riad is meticulously decorated with unique pieces. The staff and owners were lovely and very attentive to details. The food was the best we've tried in Essaouria. I wish we could've stayed longer since we decided to stay only 2 nights. The charm...

Thank you for your compliments. The Villa Maroc Restaurant is also open for no residents. Just pass and have a look at the "menu du jour". As we serve only freshly prepared food, and moroccan food takes at least two hours to prepare, you have to order in the afternoon to enjoy a real moroccan meal. Looking forward to meeting... More

The Villa in Essaouira is classy and a delight, and the road trip we took to their pool in the suburbs was also an experience. The owners really know how to make a traveller feel like a pampered guest. The staff is warm and charming, and breakfast on the roof was great.

What a lovely place! Simple but atmospheric. Few mod cons but it's got a great feel and serves as an excellent base. The roof terrace is lovely for breakfast. As the staff are friendly and helpful. The whole of Essaouira is yours to explore from here - easily and on foot. Lots of sets of uneven stairs add character not... More
