The staff here are wonderfully friendly and numerous. Everyone does their job so well. The pool is beautiful and peaceful and the private beach area is a great place to relax in the sun. The food at the hotel again is delicious and the breakfast buffet alone makes the place worth staying in. Lovely rooms with balconies, we always choose... More

We stayed just 2 nights last week and the hotel and staff were lovely. The rooms were nice and comfortable and cost was ok. The issue for me was the price of the amenities. £1.50 to play a game of pool, £8.00 for a cocktail. OK, for a Londoner this is not unusual but for Morocco is scandalous. The food... More

Le Medina, Essaouira, was a life-saver on a short, one-week, first time, trip to Essaouira, this June - I was travelling with my mother, who has difficulty using stairs and was generally disappointed with the quality of another hotel we had been checked into. Everything about Le Medina smacks of class & whilst we were paying slightly more for the... More

We decided to stay at this hotel since we know the accord group, this places should never disappoint anyone. I should say, that although the hotel is a traditional Riad, it shouldn't be in these deplorable conditions, moisture, mildew, dirt, are not included in a traditional 5 star experience. To continue, the staff is lousy and rude, rarely one of... More

I am currently staying here and am very disappointed with the food and the service in the restaurant. There is a buffet for breakfast as one would expect but it is not very extensive and the buffet is not topped up enough - we go to breakfast at 9:30 (it is served until 10:30) and by this time the baguettes,...

Essaouira being very lively, especialy in the summer, it felt very nice to be able to relax in our retreat. I have hardly found an hotel where the wifi worked so well, good connection everywhere, even on the private beach. My partner and I were able to work with no problem. The grounds are lovely, very nice modern lobby, spacious... More
