Lovely place, views, people, food and of course the charming host Bruno. We felt at home from the start and time flew by as we enjoyed the food, the heated pool(s) and an exceptional massage. We'll be back! Marie & co

We visited end of april 2015 with our two teenage daughters (Dutch family). Extraordinary beautiful place, great luxury, great food, nice and quiet, very friendly staff and helpful owner (Bruno). Well worth taking the dirt road. Bruno gave us a tour around the villa on arrival and we were in love with the place instantly. During our stay he advised... More

What an amazing stay we had at Villa Ganatouki. We have travelled all over the world, and it's not often that it feels hard to leave a place. Villa Gonatouki had a lovely balance of tasteful interiors, spectacular views towards the Moroccan coast, great food, beautiful garden and fantastic pools. Bruno was a passionate host, who made us feel at... More

We only spent one day in Bruno's splendid villa but we appreciate it so much! We can call it the highlight of our Morocco trip. This place diserves that. We had the chance to enjoy everything Bruno and his staff offer - we had a nice room, took a swimm in both swimming pools, had a great dinner with a... More

Gonatouki is a fabulous find and the perfect antidote to the exciting chaos of Morocco. The villa and gardens are beautiful. Two pools provide a great place to start or end the day with just enough break from the steady wind of Essaouira. Bruno is a perfect host -- full of great stories and tips. The food is fabulous and... More

A large stylish modern Riad with traditional architectural overtones in a large plot with 2 heated pools. Access is the worst aspect down a bumpy unmade road but well worth the drive. The owner Bruno is a charming french host with good english who welcomes you as if part of the family. Staff all very friendly and helpful. Good advise... More

My wife and I stayed at Villa Gonatouki for 2 nights at the end of a week trip to Morocco. We started in Marrakech, moved to Essaouira, and finished here. Great place to finish the holiday after spending time in the medinas: very relaxing and spacious, great setting and views, lovely food, pools as good as they look in the... More

We have stayed 3 nights at the Villa. The design and decor of the place is impeccable and very beautiful. There different areas where you can relax, read, right either in the spacious lounges or by the pool. You can also exercise in the 2nd very long swimming pool should you wish that. The bedroom was large, with a real... More

I stayed at Villa Ganatouki with my boyfriend for a couple of days which was not long enough, everything about our stay was perfect... the welcoming staff, Bruno, our beautiful room which had a open wood burner, the peaceful and relaxing atmosphere, the traditional home made Moroccan food, the beautiful interior and exterior of the villa… The list goes on.....
