A friend suggested that my boyfriend and I check out the fishing town of Essaouira on our trip to Morocco and we could not be more thankful for the reco! SUCH an incredible little town that I actually found to be more charming, relaxing and enjoyable than Marrakech.
We went back and forth between whether we should stay at the Sofitel or Heure Bleue and decided to for the Sofitel and we were not disappointed! Our standard room was large and had open access to a garden and beautiful views of the golf course and the ocean.
The room for the most part was clean and in great working order with the exception of the safe still be locked from the last guest and the coffee machine being very dirty. But otherwise, it was lovely!
The hotel grounds are amazing and we enjoyed a lazy afternoon lounging by the pool and relaxing after our drive from Marrakech. Staff were nice and despite struggling a bit with English, they definitely tried. Nora who showed us to our room and explained the facilities from the reception desk was absolutely lovely.
Our biggest regret was that we hadn't booked a longer stay and the hotel was fully booked for easter weekend so we had to leave as scheduled. Would highly recommend this hotel for your stay in Essaouira. It is about a 10 minute drive from the old city but with the hotel's shuttle service and ample available cabs - this isn't a problem. In fact, we loved being able to get away and have an incredible view.
I only gave a lower rank for sleep quality as the mattress had a pillow-top and very little support but this probably could have been easily remedied by calling guest services.
Definitely recommend the hotel! Beautiful grounds, great views, good service and a great place to relax in between exploring the city.
