Me and my boyfriend were actually staying in Marrakech for one week, and decided to go to Essaouira for 1 night, and when we arrived to the Hotel, we realised we didn't have our Money with us (we forgot it in Marakech), we didn't have a Credit Card either, so we didn't know what to do.

We stayed for 4 nights in April and were very happy that although the hotel was full, it was nice and quiet. Young lady on reception was very nice and polite, always had a smile and a greeting. The female receptionist was also helpful with transport advice. Breakfast hit the spot, served every morning on the roof terrace. Would definately... More

I chose the Dunes for my last trip to Essaouira having previously stayed in the busy Medina. I found it an excellent choice away from the bustle of the historic quarter. The rooms are clean and comfortable, the breakfasts on the sunny roof terrace are ample, and the walk into the town along the sandy beach is a wonderful start... More

Pretty rooms, lovely rooftop terrace where breakfast was served. It's in a really quiet residential neighbourhood. The walk to the medina took us 25 minutes but we enjoyed strolling along the beach anyway. Staff were really friendly and hospitable, although the owner was a little stern!

Thank you very much for your review. We will pass on your comment to the team. We are sorry that it was not clear enough that we were 2 minute walk away from the beach and 20 from the busy medina. As you said it is a nice walk and we advice customers who do not want to walk to... More

First of all hotel was quite hidden and we needed to follow a cab to find it. It is located in the dunes side among other residences. A quiet part of the city not as charming as the medina. The personnel in the hotel was very helpful except from the owner who doesn't seem to like new years eve. Rooms... More

We stayed here for 4 nights with our 2 years old daughter. The rooms are spacious and clean, water is hot, service is great and the price is cheap! Not glamorous but perfect for what you need! Breakfast is included and is all you could need-fresh bread, crepes, Jams, honey, juice, coffee, tea. It is about a 20min walk to... More

Stayed 3 nights.The rooms was quiet, clean and serviced daily. Breakfast served on a large roof terrace with enough chilling out space to make it feel secluded. SOme rooms have their own terraces. Friendly cat hangsout in the terrace (but keeps to himself). 30 minute walk along the beach into Essaouira. Staff helpful.

Excellent value and convenient distance from the beach, the breakfast which was included with our room was excellent and the roof terrace was very pleasant. One night we wanted a beer and they had ran out, the guy on duty went out and got us some which was a really nice surprise. I would also add that many people on... More

We stayed here for 2 nights having picked the hotel because of its proximity to the beach (10 minute walk) and the price! It was way too windy to sit on the beach but still it was a pleasant (long) walk to the medina. Taxi recommended for getting into the medina for and after dinner (only 8 dhm). Very basic... More
