I stayed at this hotel for 3 weeks whilst working in Essaouira a few months back. Initially I quite liked the hotel and it did the job as far as a place to stay on a business trip is concerned. I prefer to stay in places with more character and charm if I'm on holiday myself. The place itself is soulless.
Little did I know when complaining to my colleagues about not getting extra hangers after asking about ten times for them what was to happen...
On one of the nights my room was broken into and I was sexually assaulted while I lay in bed asleep and unaware until I woke and the person in question ran out of my room.
We later discovered this to be a member of staff and it also happened to another colleague simultaneously.
The hotel manager was in total denial that something like this would happen and was very reluctant to do anything about it. Only when the heads of our company got involved and subsequently the police that actions were taken although I believe that nothing much was actually done and when we left Essaouira I suspect the member of staff in question probably returned to work, seems unbelievable but the hotel couldn't have treated the matter with less seriousness and concern so it leaves me with little else to believe!
To be honest I'd rather sleep on the beach than stay here again! The doors dont even lock properly and can always be accessed from the outside even when you think its locked its not! Trust me we checked!
Women especially please do not stay here, there are plenty more places to stay in Essaouira!
