It was a pleasure to have you with us. The harbor with the fish market is always an experience as also the souks, the beach and the countryside around Essaouira. Many things to discover next time you come to Essaouira. Looking forward to welcoming you in summer. Thank you for your comment. More

We spent a couple days at the Riad Villa Maroc in Essaouira, and found it mostly enjoyable. The staff were efficient although they didn't seem to know much about Essaouira when asked. Nonetheless, thanks to Trip Advisor, we found that the riad is conveniently located to restaurants, nightlife, and the beach. Riad Villa Maroc is easy enough to find -... More

We are pleased to hear, that you had an enjoyable stay at Villa Maroc. In Essaouira we don't have the palaces you can find in Fes or Marrakech. Our Riad was the home of one of the merchants called by Sultan Moulay Abdellah to prosper the city of Essaouira in the 18th century. 4 interconnected very typical houses with courtyards.... More

Villa Maroc could not have been more perfect. The staff were welcoming and attentive. The owner charming and always available. The rooms and the salons so beautifully decorated and welcoming. A truly amazing place with so much attention to detail. The location also could not be better and if one wanted to be away from the hussle and bussle then... More

We stayed 4 nights on half board basis. We had booked the suite with sea view (room 24); This was exactly what we were looking for: comfort, charm and outstanding view. All the more, the food for dinner is what we can call gastronomic. So subtile and varied. i live in Morocco since 4 years and relly this is the... More

We celebrated our special birthdays at Villa Maroc and it was a really wonderful stay... only wish we stayed longer!! A really comfortable hotel with very welcoming staff. We had a wonderful suite in the tower overlooking the ocean and the terraces. Everywhere was spotlessly clean and tastefully decorated. As it was bit cool in the evening we had the... More

A labyrinth of four houses converted into one great place to stay. Intimate dinner niches with a roof top patio for breakfast (with the gulls)! Helpful and attentive staff, a quiet and cool calm. Very close to the public exhibition spaces so may be noisier (but very convenient) at festival time? Very close to the port (parking) and the fish... More

This is a lovely traditional Riad in the centre of town. It is also near the port.Our room had a sea view and it was lovely. The decor was traditional and understated. Breakfast is served on the roof terrace - it wasn't windy while we were there which might be annoying I suppose - but you do have to watch... More

Situated just inside the city wall. Used to be a couple of properties until converted into a hotel. Rooms are situated on 4 levels which entails a little interesting wandering to find your particular room. You can take your evening meal in house which is quite nice as you will be eating in your very own dining area. If the... More

Given that elsewhere in Morocco we stayed in hotels costing twice as much this review may be affected by some disappointment, despite the cheaper cost. We asked for sea view and had from room at top. The room smelt musty and meant the windows had to be open even though it was cold. Bed was fine but lounge and chair... More
