“Second time at "Auberge de la plage"...”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 28, 2012

Third time in Sidi kouki and second time at this hotel in a few years period. Last ime it was great so we decided to come back here. The place is still really nice, warm atmosphere and clean rooms. What we didn't like at all was food: breakfast was really poor, but dinner...a plate of couss couss and for dessert yoghurt with sliced banan!

5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 11, 2010

We put in a few days by the coast to complement our stay in Marrakech. I guess most people fly into Essaouira but we drove from Marrakech (100 miles), a straighforward drive, calling in at a few points of interest including an argan oil concession, run by local women. I'd recommend that as a great way of seeing the countryside.

Auberge de la Plage is set back a little from the beach but only by moments. The place was ideally relaxing and calming. All the rooms are differently decorated but with a distressed flotsam theme. Ours was a delighfully simple twin, with a small wetroom ensuite with a shower curtain and duckboard. Breakfast was ample and sustaining. We only needed breakfast at the Auberge but would have gone full board if we'd been staying longer as the evening meals smelled delicious.

We'd been travelling for 5 weeks through Egypt and Northern Morocco, and needed a break. The small sleepy town of Sidi Kaouki, and more specifically Auberge de la Plage provided exactly what we were looking for.

Great rooms overlooking the ocean, friendly people, great atmosphere, very clean. There's also a rooftop sundeck or a small lawn to relax on downstairs.

Auberge de la Plage give you an option to have 3 course meals every night cooked by the girls in the kitchen (some of the best we ate in Morocco) and cold beer and good wine at the bar. (just let them know before midday)

All in all we stayed for 4 nights. If you're looking for some activities, you can hire surfboards and windsurfers 100M down the road, The beach is about 3 Kms long and deserted, the locals don't bother you and you can happily lay on the beach in your bikini.

We also hired horses on the beach and went for a sunset horseride on the sand. Great fun as long as you know how to handle a horse. The horses were strong and in great shape.
