“Not an authentic Moroccan experience.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 22, 2013 via mobile

The outside of the building is stunning. Very Essaouira. And the pool area is beautiful (although the pool is rather small for the size of hotel). The inside is rather sterile and standard and the corridor to the rooms is very long. My room was lovely though it didn't feel like I was in Africa at all. Shower was great although my sink drained very slowly. The food for the set evening meal was interesting. I think it tried to be refined and posh but feel short in its randomness. Whole fish with cold rice. Hard spaghetti with cheese. Drinks were pricey too.

Basic typical Ibis on the road to the old city.
Rooms are ok, same about service.
Breakfast was very basic as well, not more than that.
If you do not expect to much, so it's a very good option.
It's a realy good for value option.

We stay in ibis three nights, the room is clean, well heated and the reception so helpfull. Good price and plenty breakfast, 15 minute by foot to the center by the seaway. Good compromise for visit Essaouira and find a place not expensive
