We took advantage of an Internet offer on the hotel website and got excellent value for money. The inside room overlooking the swimming pool was large and quiet with a sizeable and comfortable bed. Like me, the hotel has seen better days, but it still has a lot to offer. A short walk to the old town and the port,... More

Essaouira is great, and Le Medina offers a perfect homebase to explore it. Highly recommended in all respects! The ocean-view rooms overlook the relatively busy street, but they are never too noisy; the service is very capable and friendly. Overall, the hotel is just an excellent place to stay.

We stayed here after 4 crazy days in Marrakech, and what a joy. It is opposite the beach, road not so busy. Night time was very quiet so great nights sleep. Maybe too quiet for some. 10 minute walk into town, where there are plenty of restaurants to choose from (Taros is fabulous). There is also a hotel fish restaurant... More

We stayed for 6 days between 13 and 19 November. Our booking was not made through the Sofitel website and there was a problem with the booking. Fatime at the hotel sorted this out for us very promptly and gave us a lovely room with large balcony overlooking the pool, I cannot thank her enough. The hotel is very relaxing... More

The hotel is well situated close to the Medina and on the sea shore. Were were initially pleased with our choice when we arrived. We were cordially met at reception. However our room upgrade through the a club membership was to a larger, but poolside view room, which to my mind was not an improvement. Our bed was good, but... More

We spent 5 nights in this hotel and the staff really stood out as excellent. I would not rate it as 5* star as although the rooms were kept spotlessy clean they are a bit worn around the edges; peeling paint in the bathroom; loose tap and loo roll holder for example. We had a sea view as we prefer... More

Very nice hotel in a great location. Friendly and clean, choice of restaurant somewhat limited and food average but staff nice and lovely pool and gardens. Walking distance to the medina - and rather nice to be away from it! Good size rooms and bathrooms, corridors a bit worn.

Chose this hotel as it was on the beach, had a pool & was close to the medina. We found a really cheap deal online which made me happy to overlook the shabby decor. Our 4 year old son loved the pool & easy access to the beach but unfortunately the childrens suite was closed while we were there. There... More
