We spent 6 nights at this African Lodge-like hotel: if you seek peace and quietness in a wonderful location, this is the place to be. However, make sure NOT to book through Hotels.com. Our online booking was not recognized by Tangaro, but luckily they still had rooms available and we only had to wait for half an hour or so... More

First, in its own right, a lovely hotel, peaceful, outside of town but a short cab ride for the equivalent of 3 euros to the market in Essaouira. aesthetically pleasing rooms opening into a courtyard that looks out to the west toward the ocean from on top of a big hill. Although it couldnt be more different architecturally, the feel... More

Auberge Tangaro is an unusual building for the area, normally hotels are of a riad style in Morocco but this old inn retains a historic charm that we did not find anywhere else during our weeks in the country. Looking out towards the forest and then the huge flat beach leading towards Essaouria, the owner has made great efforts to... More

Auberge Tangaro is truly very special. The website/photos are lovely but still cannot capture the unique beauty of this place. I would not recommend anywhere else in Essaouira. The medina, where a lot of the other Riads/guesthouses are is pretty but touristy and busy. Auberge Tangaro is an oasis of calm and peace, especially after Marrakech. The only sounds you... More

Very charming boutique hotel with a great spirit and service. The hosts were great including the owner which has great sense of hospitality. The hotel has strong heritage and is a nice escape from the city hectiness. It has also original set up which gives it an alternative touch.

We enjoyed our time at Tangaro and Essaouira...The hotel is full of charm and perfectly located outside the medina. You will love the laid-back atmosphere, the light, the colors and the simplicity of this authentic place. The staff is attentive and kind without being all the time on your shoulders. The candle-lit dinner is an outstanding experience in itself. We... More

In my opinion Auberge Tangaro is way too expensive for what they offer – especially if you compare it to other accommodations in Morocco. Rooms are nice but bathrooms could be modernized. It is pretty laid back (nice atmosphere with lots of candles lit in the evening) but if you don’t have a car you’ll be stuck as beaches and... More

Dear Guest, Thank you for visiting Tangaro and for praising both your room and the quality of sleep - also the atmosphere of the candles-light. I regret that you did not let us know during your stay about issues mentioned, as we could easily have resolved some of them: for example that you preferred your fish more well-cooked. Real fires...

Having chosen this hotel/ riad based on good reviews from Tripadvisor, Booking.com and Lonely Planet me and my partner booked it via the Auberge Tangaro website. At arrival in the late afternoon the staff seemed preoccupied with cleaning out the whole place... All the carpets were laid outside to be "photographed," according to the proprietor. Check in was simple and... More

Auberge Tangaro is just 5 mintues from the centre of Essaouira by cab which only cost 40 Dirham and is only a 10 minute walk from the beach. The rooms were traditional, bright and clean. We had a log fire in our room which was amazing as the evenings got a bit cold, don't panic we visited in winter. The... More
