Had some difficulties finding a good triple room in Essaouira. But Ocean Vagabond had a suite Jaipur in two floors with a small balcony toward the sea. Nice view! Had a double room upstairs (bed was quite noisy) and had a small bed downstairs. Nice bathroom. Rose pedals everywhere. Beautiful. Very good breakfast, freshly baked bread (two kind), cake, yoghurt,... More

We enjoyed two nights here in November. We were the only guests but were well looked after. The guesthouse is slightly set back from the beach and ideally placed for all things: the medina, the beach, the new town and even the RC church! There is a pretty little garden and a small bathing pool - and your breakfast is... More

We were happy to find this place in essaouira as it offered us a great place to relax were you can also find a very extended menu with international cuisine, ranging from burgers to pizzas but also more exquisite dishes as oisters or fresh Tuna. Wines are great, it is a very busy place where service is sometimes a bit... More

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 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
