We stayed for four nights and were hugely underwhelmed. True the Moroccan staff were polite and smiley but the French management, especially at reception, was distant and, disinterested. It's a money making machine: you pay for everything and you pay a lot, the breakfast for example could be bought better and for a quarter of the price in town. When... More

Stayed here for 8 nights and found the level of comfort and helpfulness in the hotel to be exceptional. Friendly staff; couldn't do enough; genuinely warm and helpful people. Food is excellent! Only drawback was that we chose the hotel as it has an indoor as well as an outdoor pool: the indoor pool is booked the entire day for... More

We spent 5 days here after being in marrakesh in a very traditional riad, so we had a nice combination of traditional and modern. Fresh flowers around the hotel, very clean, staff very polite (some spoke more english than others), complimentary mint tea on arrival, free safe in room, lovely view to the sea from the terrace. 5 minute walk...

This Hotel was much better than we expected. It is clean, nicely designed and not too far from the centre of Essaouira. It is great for families having children as it is close for the beach and has a nice (but cold) pool inside its boundaries. The children were allowed in the spa after 7pm. We were booked in as...

The Sofitel in Essaouira is a typical modern hotel. It is built in typical hotel style (a cross between Tesco with a hint of early Gatwick) and looks a bit like a multi storey carpark with curtains. The rooms are comfortable and well equipped, the staff are efficient and smiley, everything is provided for your comfort. There really is nothing... More

We stayed at the Sofitel for three days at the beginning of October, after spending 3 days in Marrakech. The contrast was amazing - after the heat, dust and chaos of Marrakech, Essaouira is a cooler, calmer, more relaxed place. The Sofitel is a large, clean, modern hotel, conveniently located across the corniche from the beach and a short walk... More

My family and I stayed for 11 days at the Sofitel. We were looking for style, comfort and facilities - we got all three.. but we also got a bit more. I recommend this hotel most highly and I am unusually critical of hotels run by global chains. Perhaps its the French approach - staying in a large hotel run... More

We travelled to Essaouira by car as part of our Sovereign package holiday after 4 nights in a riad in Marrakech. We just wanted to relax by a pool in anonymous surroundings so the Sofitel was perfect for that. It's standard 4/5 star international fayre, excellent if impersonal service (mainly French spoken, some English) with maid service twice a day,... More

We enjoyed our stay here. We did the half board program and found the dinners to be excellent in all of the three restaurants.
