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

Villa Maroc has very nice rooms, with a clear design and working facilities :-). The staff is very friendly and helpful. The house offers many private corners and private rooms to make yourself a good time. The terrace give you a nice view across the the bay. The food is nice but in the end the standard simple setup of... More

Very good stay. Friendly very helpful staff, central position , up -to -date without being like a marble mausoleum, great food with usually at least one unusual and exceptional dish each dinner, cosy rooms, good views.We felt connected to Essaouira at Villa Maroc.

Great place. Truly great breakfast! Would definitely stay here again! We were there over New Years Eve and they had a nice party. Food was good and the party good but overpriced. 90 euro and no wine or champagne included.

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
