To reach the property you need to come off the tarmac road and take a long dusty lane . Lovely looking property. There are several blocks or suites. We had rented 2 and could compare. They are spacious, have good facilities too. The only his is the internet only worked by the pool, not in the accommodation. But again, travelling... More

This lovely place is ideal to relax and enjoy the nearby beaches. The owner is really friendly and helpful. Just enjoyed our breakfast near the pool. The apartments are simple, comfortable and clean. The old city of Essaouria is only ten minutes by car.

Personal background: 30 years of independent travel around the globe, mostly the Med. Villa Amaryllis: Simply one of the best places we have ever stayed in and superb value for money. Our stay as a couple was short (a three day break from the UK) at no notice at all in January - we had not booked ahead. We were... More

Selfishly, I am reluctant to write a review as I would like to keep this place a secret and all to myself. My husband and I visited for 3 nights and arranged a taxi transfer with the owners via email to collect us from Essaouira airport and bring us to the Villa. The taxi took 20 minutes and was a...

Great property - you wouldn't know what is behind the walls!! Immediately after booking I receive an email with directions - very helpful but regrettably the restaurant opposite the dirt track turn in changed its name. I only found the road by having Google Earth pictures with me! The property is a walled compound with a fabulous pool, lounge area/dining... More

Fantastic place. Perfect, clean rooms with a small terrace, fantastic swimming pool, lovely place! We also had 3 delicious dinners at Amaryllis, prepared by a Morocon cook. In our three week stay in Morocco, this were probably the best dinners we've had. A last element worth noting it that the owners and the staff really go the extra mile for... More

There are quite a few luxury villas / riads outside Essaouira but I am glad we chose Villa Amaryllis. Not easy to find but worth the trouble. Very relaxed walled complex, pretty and comfortable cottages, extremely friendly staff. Owners only speak French but staff speak English as well. Absolutely no problems communicating and always with a smile. We came by... More

After this review, I am afraid that I will never be able to book this hidden little gem. This little villa was along a rutted, rocky road about 15 minutes to the south of Essaouira. The road to get there is fairly difficult but once inside the villa, its all worth it. And its close enough to go into Essaouira... More

Myriam and Bernard- A big thank you for having us! After a few weeks of dust and ethnic adventure a couple of nights of comfortable luxury were more than welcome.

We really enjoyed our staying at Amaryllis Villa. After 3 days in busy, crazy Marrakesh, we were really looking for some quiet, clean, nice place. We found more than that! The place is 7 in drive from the city and is not that difficult to find as we expected. The road is manageable and worth driving it for the peace... More
