Transportation from Casablanca to Essaouira

We are traveling from Casablanca to Essaouria in Feb, 2013 and would like to take private transportation. Any ideas how this could be arranged or where to stay in Essaouria?

Easy, just ask any taxi driver what the rate is (have no idea myself) but be prepared to hagggle if they ask too much. Someone else I'm sure will advise you of the rate.

Although Essouira is but a smallish place and very easy to get around, there are hundreds of places to stay. These can be apartments, hotels or private houses.

The latter are by far the cheapest but you will only find them by chance or by asking. If you have someone local arrange a private house for you then you may well pay double as they will arrange the rate with the vendor and you won't have a clue what they are saying.

There are tourist hotels just outside of the medina (Hotel Des Iles, Sofitel and others) but these are star rated tourist hotels and so will be exensive.

Within the medina are inexpensive as well as plush Moroccan hotels/riads (ie Villa Maroc).

Read reviews by clicking on Essaouira Hotels at top of the page. You can also contact directly people who have written reviews to ask specifically what these are like. Hotel/riad website are not always reliable and tend always to show the best rooms they have to offer. What you end up with may be quite a flop such as tiny rooms.

I have no particular need for hotel facilities so stay at Hotel Sahara which charges around €25 per night. Breakfast is not included but there are some good cafes which serve very good brekkie for 20Dh (coffee/pancakes/ honey/cake).
