We booked a stay at Villa Maroc and were very excited. However, when Morocco closed down to travelers, we obviously could not get into the country from the US. I requested a refund, and management told me my refund would be processed on May 25. it was not. They then asked for an e-mail from Expedia, which Experdia sent. No refund. Then Expedia tried again, another e-mail was requested and was provided. They then said the government had told hotels not to refund any more than 50% of the reservation paid. OK. Still no refund has been received, despite multiple promises to do so, and despite having met every changing requirement. It is clear they are not concerned about integrity. If they did not intend to refund my money, they should have at least been honest and said they could not pay the refund.

Very nice hotel, owner managed. Very stylish and lovingly cared for. Very nice rooms with a beautiful roof terrace and a view of the bay The cuisine is excellent, the staff is very courteous but not pushy. The owners took great care of the guests even during the Corona crisis!

Spent 2 nights here when visiting Essaouira. Great location - everything close by. Gorgeous riad with lovely decor, cute little rooms with fires. Breakfast on the roof was lovely, as was dinner by the fire. A couple more sunloungers on the roof would have made it perfection!

we recently stayed at Villa Maroc in Essaouira and absolutely loved it. The location is perfect and the roof top is the most wonderful breakfast setting. There are lots of wonderful small reception room which guests can use. I particularly liked the nice small touches - rose petals on our bed, hot water bottle each evening and a glass of lovely red wine by the fire in one of the many reception rooms at the end of a busy day.

Villa Maroc grows on you with its charm, ambience and really lovely staff. That being said it didn’t get 5 stars as I feel there are certain areas which could be improved and then it would be perfect! The good points are the friendly, efficient staff who will look after you very well. The location is great and very quiet considering you are right in the Medina. The breakfasts sitting up on the rooftop were fabulous and the birthday cake they made for me was the best I have ever had! (Would love the recipe) The evening meals were a little hit and miss, sometimes superb other times a bit dry and not very interesting (the chicken pastille) Good choice of Moroccan wines which are very good. The not so good points :- the first room we had on our first night felt very small and claustrophobic and the decor was very dull. Might I suggest livening up a small space with more warmth and colour, it felt drab and unloved. The second room we were given was much nicer and having a fire in the evening brought the room to life making it feel very cozy and romantic! I did also feel that some areas were not as clean as they could have been so perhaps that needs looking at. However all that being said they are small points for improvement but overall we thoroughly enjoyed our stay....with a few tweaks this place could be amazing!
