We booked at the very last minute and had a really enjoyable and comfortable stay at the Atlas Essaouira & Spa - would recommend it for a very relaxing holiday (if you haven't visited Essaouira, it's one of Morocco's seaside gems and well worth the 2.5 hr drive from Marrakech).
The Atlas is just opposite the beach (so you get a different sun set every evening), and the main plus points here for us were the attentive staff, immaculately clean rooms, comfortable bed, and a big buffet breakfast with delicious croissants, deli-style bread rolls, and eggs, sausages, fruit, etc - as well as traditional Moroccan crepes and mint tea. Chic and very relaxed, we would highly recommend it. There is a huge pool, good spa, jazz bar, restaurants and nothing was too much trouble for the staff. We would pop across the road in the evenings for a drink to watch the sunset at "Seven" bar, which is part of the hotel, and a very romantic place for dinner at night as it's right on the sand.
We thought the Atlas was surprisingly affordable, too, for a 5-star Hotel & Spa especially with its prime location a few steps from Essaouira's gorgeous beach.
A lot of the staff spoke good English and the rooms have international channels (mainly French and Moroccan but some in English) and plasma screen TVs. Ours was well furnished and felt very new, there were no signs of wear and tear.
All in all, we would come back in a heartbeat and are very glad we chose this - at random - when we made the booking.
