With the fact in mind that Oualidia's midrange and budget choice of hotels is sparse, this is one of the best options. It doesn't have a particularly nice atmosphere or location, but the rooms are quite spacious and clean. The hotel serves meals as well; nothing special and limited choice. The staff was nice and polite, but also kind of... More

We stayed at L'Initiale overnight on our way to Essaouira. The location is excellent - almost on the beach. As others have pointed out, try to book Room#5 as it has the only clear view of the sea. The rooms are small but very comfortable and are absolutely spotless. Having TV in the room was a bonus. I was surprised... More

We spent a couple of nights here after staying down the road at L'Araignee Gourmande and the difference was huge. Granted, we paid twice as much at L'Initiale, but it was worth it. The room was fantastic. It was clean, beautiful and with great views to the sea. The bathroom was a bit small, but there was hot water and... More

Overall experience: An excellent hotel and restaurant. Service: Very friendly and helpful in all respects. Also helped us to book a "Grand Taxi" back to El Jadida. Rooms: Very clean. Good service. Bathrooms are small but clean. Comfortable bed. Restaurant: Excellent seafood. Reasonably-priced.

L'Initial is a great location if you wish to spend some time in this sea side resort. Do not expect 5* luxury, it is nice and clean, to the point, you get what you pay for. Friendly service, breakfast is included. The food is super fresh, service is efficient and nothing seems too much trouble, a real pleasure. Conveniently located,... More

Employees are very correct and help you with whatever you need. There is tv with satellite. Tastefully decorated and very good food. The owner is french and she helped us find a nice place in Essaouira.

We've been going here for a number of years. The hotel is average - clean yet a little expensive for what you get. The restaurant has really gone down hill though. Food was well below average on this visit, whereas before it was fantastic. They changed chefs! Hope they can get a new one and soon.

It took me a while to decide which hotel to choose in Oualidia. In the end I chose L'Initiale and was really pleased I did. I was a bit put off by the price, thinking it is so cheap that it can't be that good. However it was really nice. The owner Isabel is really friendly, laid back and happy... More
