We chose this hotel based on the very good rough guide write up. Fortunately we only planned 2 days in Essaouira. The place has been severely neglected and our room was tatty. One window had no catch, the curtains were torn and the electrics liked completely bodged. The balcony furniture was dirty grey plastic rather then white and the table... More

We went to the wonderful Gnaoua Music Festival in June. As others have said this little hotel, in the heart of Essaouira, is looking a little care-worn, but our room was simple, clean, bright and comfortable and our little balcony overlooking Place Moulay Hassan was a real treat especially at night during the festival. The very early morning call to... More

I've been using this hotel since 1990 and have stayed more than 8 times over the years. My last visit was end January 2013 with wife, daughter and her fiancee. The hotel provided the rooms I requested but I'm sorry to say that the whole hotel is looking very tired and in need of a decoration refresh. The roof top... More

We stayed here two nights in January 2012 and found it just tolerable for the money. No breakfast was included for us--wonder why other reviewers got it and we didn't?--and nothing too wonderful about the place, but it was a good night's sleep, we liked the location, and the wifi worked in the lounge. Both days our hot water didn't... More

Dilapadated,depressed,in need of maintenance and complete overhaul. Was included in our tour but we took one look walked out and paid for a lovely riad. Insulting to think a tour company would think it fit to stay in. 2 disgruntled Aussies.

Only consider staying here if you don't mind very scruffy surroundings. Bedding was damp curtain hanging off the track and although good central location the calling to prayer sounds like it is in your room! Breakfast has improved since last reviews fresh orange large glass, coffee and bread and butter and apricot jam.

I was booked here as part of a tour group. I moved after 2days/1 night and paid extra to stay in a riad instead. Reasons: - depressing ambience - noise (the busy square on one side, the 30min prayer broadcast over loudspeakers at 5am from the mosque across the street) - depressing breakfast. Essaouira is a lovely relaxed beachside town... More

Beau Rivage is a good hotel located in the center of Essaouira. It's important to negotiate the price! They asked for 350dh, but I paid 250 without long negitiations. Since it is in the main square of Essaouira, it is quite chaotic! Room was nice and clean with bathroom inside. Wireless available. Good breakfast for 20dh per person.

This hotel has a great central location and provides clean budget accommodation. The rooms can be a bit noisy though as noted in some reviews. Still, the staff is friendly, and it's quite convenient.
