On our trip along the Atlantic Moroccan coast we stopped in Essaouira for two nights before heading to Marrakesh. We stayed in the Hamman room, which was rather cosy and spacious. There were candles a lovely fireplace and the ceiling had muiti coloured glass bits which gave the room ax exotic touch, pity one of the glasses was broken and it since one night it was raining a bit of water was dripping from the ceiling but it was nothing too bad. The owner and Leah made us feel very welcome and their waiter Rasheed was also extremely kind and helpful.
Lovely pool although the water was really cold. We had dinner there one night and the food was really nice. Wi fi is available almost everywhere and the atmosphere is very relaxed: guests don t even need to say when they want to have breakfast, and it can be servered anywhere you wish.
The main downside is that is not located very close to Essaouira and the last three kms are unpaved bumpy road.
Ideal if you just want to relax and do very little.
