This hotel was stunning. A masterpiece behind some grand blue doors. Aesthetically, it was the most beautiful hotel I have ever stayed in - the layout, decor and ethos was amazing and every day fresh fruit was left in your room. Brekkie fantastic, lots of fresh fruit, fresh eggs and the Director came around all of the tables every morning... More

This is beautiful, top-flight property on the edge of the relatively small medina. So it is easy to walk to just about anywhere of interest in the town. We stayed in the upper-floor suites, which are very spacious and have lovely furnishings. The central courtyard, where the fine breakfast is served, is lush and welcoming. The staff is friendly and... More

The hotel in the medina is magnificent. We stayed in two beautiful adjacent suites/rooms. Breakfast, lunch on the rooftop and dinner were excellent. I truly appreciated the hospitality of the whole team. The hotel is small; they really make the difference by giving you a personal service that you cannot find in large hotels. Many thanks for your friendliness and... More

Stayed here for 3 nights in August. Greeted with fresh orange juice and delicious biscuits in the wonderful courtyard. This hotel is full of character and quiet from the medina of essaouira. We stayed in a Classic Room which was clean and well decorated. The breakfast was amazing. So much variety and fresh pancakes made to order. Staff were extremely... More

A beautifully renovated old palace with friendly, attentive service and stunning rooftop pool/terrace. Very comfortable stylish rooms and well located just within the Medina walls and also close to the Supratour bus station if you have travelled from Marrakech as we had. A word of advice (and nothing to do with the hotel) - Don't ride camels on the beach... More

We were supposed to stay in Maison de Cinema in the medina, but our first night there was quite bad. Uncomfortable, noisy, not clean at all. So we booked the best we could find in essaouira. This hotel saved our holiday and made it so much better than we imagined. The service was top-notch, the rooms were great and the... More

What's not to like. The building itself is in the riad style with a colonial flavour, arranged over 4 floors with a large, lushly planted central courtyard dotted with tables. This is where one enjoys the lovely breakfast buffet, replete with Moroccan specialities including made to order crepes and little pancakes. There is a rooftop pool and restaurant ( a... More

Very nice welcoming, amazing food, service is pleasant and very attentive. We spent a few hours with the chef for a cooking class and he showed us how to make the small breads and the famous couscous. The swimming pool is beautiful on the rooftop but sometimes can be a little windy. The rooms are good but a little old... More
