At this time of year Oualidia is practically in hibernation. We were the only guests in this small, but charming hideaway. We had actually stayed in the hotel 30 years ago, and it hasn't changed much except for more modern facilities. The view of the beach and the lagoon from the restaurant terrasse is still very attractive. The rooms are clean and the bed was good. It is rare these days to find rooms without TV and telephone, but then everyone bring alon their iPhones and iPads, so who needs TV???
So we relaxed on our way between Essaouira and Rabat. Oulalidia is a bustle in the summer and during school vacations. We enjoyed the quietness and the sunset. Oulaidia has always been famous for their oysters. Here they literally are taken out of the water just before being served. Probably safest to have them in Oualidia than elsewhere in Morocco.
Compared to prices elsewhere I think they may have to come down a little (unless they prefer to avoid the noisy crowd). There is a limit to how much you want to spend for quiet.
