Arrived at 11.30 and we were greeted by the owner , our room was ready and we were offered breakfast on the roof terrace followed by a briefing about Essaouira, what a wonderful start.
We stayed in the Madada room, a spacious room with an even more spacious bathroom and our own terrace overlooking the ocean.the terrace is equipped with a table and two chairs but there is enough space for two sun chairs , which would be a great addition.
We took breakfast each day on the terrace , there was also the option to have it served in our room.
Recommendations for restaurants proved to be very good
The room overlooked the gardens outside of the city walls , perhaps this area could be improved as it is a bit run down but do not let this put you off , look out for the " cat lady" who twice a day feeds the kittens in the park , whilst we were there we counted at least 12 kittens that she was looking after.
The hotel location is perfect for exploring the Medina , in a quiet area but minutes away from the centre and the beach .
taxis can drop you off virtually at the door , a bonus because no vehicles are allowed inside the city walls and you would perhaps need a guide to find hotels in the Medina .
Taxis from the airport are fixed price at 150 Dirhams and take approx. 20 minutes
