After experiencing the sights, sounds & smells of Marrakech & a 3-day trip out to the desert, we were looking forward to a relaxing few days at Gonatouki to end our stay in Morocco. It was the perfect way to finish our vacation, Bruno and his helpful staff made everything happen for us, so that even without a car we... More

The Villa is in a relaxing setting. It's very quiet because you're away from any significant population. Everything I needed was available: free wi-fi, good swimming (for swimmers - there's another one for casual swimmers/dippers), meals, places where you can relax. The Villa welcomes families as well. The staff are super-friendly - the chef, in particular, was most endearing! Bruno,... More

This is the place you remember for all the right reasons. Bruno is the most welcoming of hosts who is happy to go the extra mile to ensure that his guests enjoy their stay at Gonatouki. The villa is in a stunning location with beautiful views. The rooms are comfortable and tastefully decorated and there are many beautiful places to... More

We spent three wonderful days at Villa Gonatouki and my only regret is it wasn't long enough. Monsieur Bruno is a fabulous host, the villa has a great team and has very high standards. The meals were absolutely delicious and they even catered for kids who just wanted chips! Nothing is too much trouble for your host from driving you... More

After an, at times, trying vacation this was an excellent final rest for two nights on my tour of Morocco. The house is a delight, the staff very friendly and the food glorious. I was even permitted to assist with preparing the appetisers one night. A good base for Essaouira and not too far from Marrakech.

We spent a few nights at Gonatouki, and cannot wait to go back and spend longer. Bruno is the perfect host, and looked after us so wonderfully from the moment we arrived, until all too soon we had to leave. We were touring round Morocco, and stayed in several places, but this was the best and most memorable. The house... More

Where to start! We had a thoroughly wonderful 5 days at Villa Gonatouki and would definitely recommend it to all types, as it caters for couples, families & large groups. Bruno has built up the Vila, which is stunning and runs it himself to great effect; he will gladly sort all your needs and is a remarkable host with lots... More

My wife and I had such an amazing stay at Villa Gonatouki. It is located outside Essaouira in a peaceful countryside. It seemed like staying in a luxurious hotel: beautiful exterior as well as interior design. There is quite a few lounges and rooms for guests to hang out. Worth recommending the roof where you can stargaze at night -... More

When we think of Gonatouki...we think of the pink city of India, Jaipur, it is beautiful to look at. When we think of Gonatouki...we think of La Patron, Monsiuer Bruno, a most gracious host and a very nice man. When we think of Gonatouki...we think of the beautiful ladies who served us fine foods.

If you are looking for somewhere unique with the personal touch then there is no better place than Villa Gonatouki. The Sofitel it is not, and that is what is so wonderful about it. Tucked away down a 3km dirt track is this haven if peace and tranquility. The villa is wonderfully Moroccan in decor, but equally it feels like... More
