We stayed at L'Initiale overnight on our way to Essaouira. The location is excellent - almost on the beach. As others have pointed out, try to book Room#5 as it has the only clear view of the sea. The rooms are small but very comfortable and are absolutely spotless. Having TV in the room was a bonus. I was surprised by others' criticisms of the hotel's restaurant food. We reconnoitred the other restaurant offerings in the area and very quickly made a retreat back to L'Initiale. The restaurant may be a little pricey by Moroccan standards but not ridiculously so. We ate very good seafood indeed (for a fraction of what it would cost in Australia). The staff were helpful and the French owner of the hotel was very kind - so much so that she drove us to the main road and ensured we were quoted the correct price in the shared taxi to Safi. The price we paid for our room was very fair. The location was excellent, the view was good, the beach at Ouilidia was gorgeous and weather (luckily for us) was perfect. L'initiale is a very good hotel/restaurant establishment I would recommend to fellow travellers.
