My wife and I stayed here one night and really enjoyed it. The room was large and comfortable and you could not ask for abetterlocationin Essaouira. The staff, particularly the front desk, was friendly and helpful. We were sorry to leave.

Staff were very nice and very helpful. Breakfast was plentiful and choice of time was very accommodating. Shower was actually very hot. The seagulls were the only thing that made excessive noise ! My only REAL complaint is the comfort of the bed, which is too firm for my liking and the pillows are awful - rock hard pillows are... More

We spent two nights here in March 15. Room on the top floor. Good wifi reception in the room. The staff were fine without being exceptional. The shower was little better than a dribble for the two days that we stayed. Location is great, hard to beat, though it was a bit noisy at times during the night. Breakfast was... More

We walked deeper into the heady heart of the famous medina, not hurriedly, as it was like being on a brilliant film set. We... More

We had a lovely stay here. It's a beautiful building, traditionally decorated with some lovely touches. As stated in other reviews, the rooms are really spacious and we had a little sitting room which was nice. Bathroom was a bit basic but probably typical for Morocco unless you pay a lot more, and it was cleaned really well every day.... More

I stayed at the Maison du Sud in June 2014 and was given a room at the top of the hotel. No problem you would have thought - but, ignoring the mosque morning prayers which you get used to, the seagulls on the roof were so noisy during the evening, night and early morning that sleep was impossible. The shpwer/toilet... More
