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

Very nice and charming hotel, comfortable in a traditional house : like a beautiful home. Well placed in Essaouira. Very good and cosy restaurant. Excellent staff. Nice breakfast on the rooftop with a view on the sea, the port… We would definitely go back in this hotel.

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.

Villa Maroc was lovely. The staff were extremely accommodating. I travelled with an elderly man who had difficulty with stairs, and they went out of their way to give us rooms near each other and on lower floors. Food was fabulous.

An interesting hotel with inter-connecting old courtyards and a patchwork of roof terraces. The communal spaces were all great however our room in the rooftops was very charming but very small and difficult to manoeuvre baggage etc.

Was here in 2013 with my daughter, and we loved it so much that we brought all the family (14 of us) here for our silver wedding in 2014. We booked early, so were able to get wonderful rooms (which we'd spotted on our first visit).Hard to say what was the best - everything was superb. Breakfast on the terrace,... More

We stayed 3 nights in May this year and enjoyed the atmosphere of both the hotel and the medina enormously. As other reviewers have said, the long established good reputation of this riad is recently confirmed. The standards are maintained by the current owner against strong competition. Among the strong points: respect for traditional architecture (an intriguing labyrinth of staircases... More
