We had a great break in this hotel. The garden setting is beautiful and the restaurant food was excellent. Our villa came with a lovely cook/housekeeper, Rachida, who made great Moroccan family dinners and pastries, which the children devoured. The pool and surrounding villa garden was lovely, and the villa was simply and beautifully furnished in local style. The hotel... More

We had a very enjoyable stay at this beautiful hotel. We received a warm welcome from Greg on arrival who took the time to show us round. The room was compact and lovely - good use of space with additional kids bunk beds. There are 2 pools one heated and the other not. It was hot so we opted for... More

I went here with my wife and two children (6 & 8). For the moment we arrived I was so impressed. We got a very warm welcome from the manager and staff. They showed us to our beautiful suite - amazing value off season. Two adjoining rooms, ideals for the kids, loads of space and beautifully decorated. We particularly enjoyed... More

My husband was dubious about returning to Morocco 10 years on and with kids in tow but it truly exceeded all of our expectations. We stayed here for 4 nights and easily could have stayed another 4. Our young kids had a whale of time, splashing around in the pool, exploring the stunning grounds, nature and wildlife (they didn't moan... More

We stayed here for 5 nights in March and could have stayed for longer. It was so relaxing lying by the pool, eating the delicious food, exploring the garden's nooks and crannies and watching the animals. The service was very good but quite hands off, which we liked as it makes it more peaceful - i.e. people don't constantly ask... More

We've been there for a few days celebrating our friends wedding and we spent a great moment, Service, food, bed, surroundings and decor, everything is a pure dream, I have often been traveling in great places all around North Africa but honestly never experienced this level of general well being before...

We stayed here for 6 nights in March. We're both pretty well travelled and really picky about where we stay and this place ranks as one of (if not the) loveliest places we've ever stayed. The whole hotel is beautiful with traditionally styled, comfortable and spacious rooms. The restaurants and bar area are extremely cosy (nothing nicer than a glass... More

My wife and I stayed at Les Jardin for 3 nights in March 2014 and left with mixed feelings about the hotel, although we loved Essaouira itself. If the rating system allowed it, I would give them 3.5 stars. The positives first- 1. there is a lovely infinity pool that is heated all day to around 28C. This meant it... More

a wonderful place indeed. It's was not as easy to find as we guessed, but the management is fully aware and was installing the new signs while we were staying there.

We enjoyed our stay over New Year and would gladly return! This place is in the hills, a 15-20 minute drive from Essaouira. There's not much within walking distance and we did wonder if we would feel isolated. We like to get out and about and particularly like to try different food in the evening. So this was a bit...
