Staying in a riad in the Essaouira medina we fancied a change from the bustle of the old town and took our swimming gear to the Ocean Vagabond where, for 120 dirhams (60 for children) we had the pool to ourselves in a beautiful garden with plenty of shade. The pool is quite small and 150cm deep at most, with... More

A lovely friendly hotel. Staff are so friendly and helpful beyond expectation - even accompanying us to hospital when my son had a medical emergency in the early hours. Nothing is too much trouble and their care kindness was humbling - especially Amina who was so so helpful when we needed it. Thank you The hotel is a comfortable size... More

The staff was incredibly friendly and the rooms were clean and bright with an ocean view. The decor felt like the beach in California to a large extent, but it was fine to have something different for a night. Great location and reasonable price.

We found Ocean Vagabond at the end of the paved beach path. We decided to escape the sun and the advances of the camel and horse operators who were friendly but unrelenting. We were warmly welcomed and told we could sit anywhere we pleased. A short while later our drinks were delivered and we were left to enjoy the scenery... More

This is a cool spot for the ones they want a cool a non-marrocan atmosphere...in front of the beach and next to the kyte/surf place it,s an ideal location if if you are bored of morrocon food/style. While you are there you don't feel you are in Morocco, despite of the camells, and traditional morocco music singers that are playing... More

This hotel is ideally placed at the Medina end of the beach, 2 minutes from the prom and 5 minutes from the Medina. It has a lovely little pool and garden, nice shared spaces of bar, restaurant, lounge, library and really kind and helpful staff. We stayed with our two young children and after some negotiation before hand they waived... More

Brilliant location - 2 minutes from the beach, but only 5 minutes to the port and the medina. The rooms,public spaces and pool are perhaps a little past their prime but pleasant enough and clean. The bedrooms are a good size. Breakfast wasn't great. The staff were helpful and let us check out late on the last day with no... More

Our riad owner recommended this spot and it didn't disappoint. A lovely sheltered spot by the beach with a big garden. Lovely food (we had the brochettes) and a great place to relax with a drink for a few hours also. Friendly service and a playground at the back also

Its a Nice little hotel close to but just outside the medina. We had a beautiful ocean view and a small balcony. The staff was mostly very professional and friendly. The backup staff was inexpirienced and did not smile too much. The tangine for dinner was tasteful. The breakfast plain, but the primary Crew could Spice it up with an... More
