Stayed two nights in a large open family room ( 2 adults two children ) since it was low season the property was nearly empty .. or at least we felt the place was our own. The location could not be better 2 min from the square and all that the town has to offer . The breakfast was lovely... More

We stayed at Villa Maroc for three nights in June. We had the most magical time and the riad is a home away from home. Our room was on the top floor and had a stunning view of the sea, the seagulls can be a little noisy but that does not distract from the fabulous location. Breakfast is a joy... More

We loved our stay at Villa Maroc. The room was beautiful and everyone who worked there was kind, gracious, and helpful (but not in a stuffy way). Overall, we left at home and welcomed. I also highly recommend eating at least one dinner there - ohmygosh the food was amazing! Thank you so much, Villa Maroc! We hope to be... More

My boyfriend and I visited Essaouira and stayed in this hotel just after new year. It was magical! We had seen and liked the photos on the website and were very pleasantly surprised that it was so much nicer! Our room (number 22), was a beautiful suite with lovely big windows and would also be perfect with a baby (they... More

We were a group of 10 people, old friends and we all loved the riad. The food was excellent and it is possible to have cooking course at the riad. All the rooms were spacious and very beautiful. Three of the rooms had a view to the sea. There were a lot of rooms you could choose to have your... More

This hotel was ok. Not amazing. The room was cute and clean-ish and rustic. An air conditioner would have been nice. When we tried to book a table that night for dinner we were told that we had to book it before 4:30. Nobody mentioned this when we checked in that morning. And the welcome letter we were given at...

Collected from the airport in their own new minibus. The hotel is situated within the city walls so there was not vehicular access but the driver carried our cases. We were escorted to our suite which was on the top floor, quite a climb on the narrow twisty stairs but worth the effort. The door opened onto a galleried landing... More

Fantastic atmosphere and wonderful rooms and service. The perfect place to relax and enjoy life. Breakfast was served inside and was very nice. Like being in a private home. I want to come back to that place!

Our room was lovely, and even came with rose petals one day. They have a really nice in-house hammam and the staff is extremely friendly. The location is walkable to the harbor, where you can see the fishing boats in action. The deck is really nice, and the breakfast is both large and delicious. The deck is also a great... More

Beautifully restored old building with many opportunities to explore. Decor is effortlessly cool. Beautiful restaurant, we often wound up alone in a room with a fireplace and board games after dinner. Nice spa. Very lovely staff. Very nice terrace. We had an ocean view room.

Thank you for your recommendation. Villa Maroc is more a house than a hotel. We serve dinner in several small rooms with candlelight and open fires. We do our best to make you feel home away from home. Looking forward to welcoming you among us. More
