This was our first stop on our honeymoon. Overall we were really pleased with it all and would recommend although only through 'offer' prices as our value for money included visiting with a Groupon.
The pool, breakfast, room, room service, cocktails and general service were all great. Not being particularly bilingual was not an issue here as most spoke English sufficiently if not very well.
The room did end up with ants roaming around but we had a small amount of snacks around and part of the scenery was large plants reaching up the side of the building. Although annoying it couldn't be helped much.
The wifi was very temperamental which led to quite a bit of frustration. When offered it should be consistent either way so that customers know what to expect.
The bed was the largest I think I've ever seen and the room was fantastically dark with the curtains drawn so 5 stars there.
Unfortunately the spa services were quite lacking, not in what was on offer but the organising of doing any. We waited for more than an hour whilst one other couple were served. I know there is a line to draw between giving customers a focus and importance whilst moving them a long in good time but they were WAY off in our single experience.
Overall very nice, would recommend to couples and families (there's lots to do in Essouira for all) but the price was high when not on offer.
