Visited this hotel in the lowest season, so it was slightly musty from having been shut up. However the location is good, the price reasonable, and the place charming in a quirky way. Certainly not somewhere for the overly picky, but for the price perfectly good enough.

The coastal road is amazing. Miles and miles of beautiful undeveloped ocean beaches and acres of truck farms. Lovely ride, but you do get hungry. Ah! L'Araignee Gourmande (The Greedy Spider) is a great place to stop. On the beach in Oualidia, Morocco, a pretty summer colony, this restaurant serves delicious fresh seafood. Fast, friendly service and reasonable prices. Salads,... More

We stayed here for one night only, and were very glad to leave this musty hotel. Rooms are clean, although the bathroom could use a refurbishment. Some rooms have huge balconies overlooking the lagoon, which would have been nice if there would have been any chairs or anything else to sit on.. now it was more like a block of... More

The L'Araignee Gourmande is a very average place to stay. We are travellers with no high standards and found this place rather untidy compared to many other budget hotels we stayed at in Morocco. The room seemed to like as though it was neglected for a long time. The passage way was dimly lit and the place was creepily silent.... More

We stayed here for two nights because our options were limited unless we wanted to spend quite a bit more money. The rooms were large, but very ordinary and could certainly use a bit of a refurbishment. The rooms we stayed in was not in the main hotel, which overlooks the lagoon, but down a couple of doors, which overlooks... More

We've been there for 2 nights. Room are spacious but in need of an update. In the main building the coolest ones are overlooking the bay, same for the new building where rooms were a bit undersized. Restaurant is good and fishes/seafoods always on the go: 300dh for a lobster and 130dh for a dozen of oysters (apparently the best... More

If you are returning to Casablanca by the coastal road from Essouria this Hotel-Restaurant is an excellent place to have lunch. Lovely location & an exceptional Restaurant overlooking the beach & harbour.The oysters, lobster & grilled sardines accompanied by a Moroccan Rose wine were beautiful. A great way to finish our trip before returning home.

The best thing of this hotel is its location, very close to the beach. The restaurant is one of the best of the area I think, because we went to other restaurants and were very poor (they said they didn't have fish, in a beach resort??). They have a fesh menu of seafood, fish and all you would love to... More

Although we were given very reasonable rates for our accommodation it was not the premises we first saw on the internet. The rich, in the loop French tourists got those rooms. My partner is a vegetarian and we had a very difficult time communicating with the waiters despite my OK French. It seemed the waiters thought we were 'a pain'... More
