Just spent a dreamlike four days at the Villa Maroc - tucked away just inside the medina down a narrow alley, the exterior conceals a real gem. Created out of two (or more?) old riads, it's visually stunning (whitewashed walls, gently coloured old textiles, candlelight, bowls of roses) and full of peaceful sunny corners to curl up with a book...

We found this hotel while wNdering around the backstreets and booked a room for the next few nights. Not cheap but well worth it. We gt back at nigt and tiny candles marked the way up to our room. We loved breKfast on the roof with the swooping seagulls.

We booked one of their special breaks. This included four nights; two evening meals; a cookery lesson and a trip to the spice market with the chef; a trip to a Berber market and lunch and an afternoon by the pool at their sister hotel, in the country. The trips were fascinating. The hotel is quirky, but beautiful. Dinner (which... More

Absolutely nice Riad, with all the amenities (except, as in all of them, a lift).. Here we got a suite with a living room, very nicely decorated. A beautiful terrace with magnificent view over the sea. Located just within the wall of the Medina. Bar service etc, etc, everything what good hotel should provide, but it came with a price....

In 50 years of world travel, this riad is one of the loveliest hotels we have ever stayed in. The location is perfect, on the edge of the sea and the medina, and the staff could not have been more pleasant and helpful. I asked to see some of the other rooms (to see if the reality matched the photos)... More

We came for a drink and vowed to come back 6 years later to stay. It has the feel of Les Jardins Majorelle in Marrakesh on the terrace, with superb views across the port and the Atlantic. The meal we ate last night next to a roaring log fire was the genuine homemade home cooking you read about but don't... More

I was really looking forward to dining at the Villa Maroc's restaurant, given that this is supposed to be the oldest riad in Essaouira. When our riad placed the booking, we were told that we would have to stop by Villa Maroc to select our menu. We asked if this could be done over the telephone but we were told... More
