Beautiful hotel in the middle of the medina of Essaouira. Very friendly and helpful staff - speaks French, Englisch - partly even German and Spanish and probably Arabic and Berber, which I didn't understand. ;) Very good and varied breakfast and they offer also one excellent dinner menu every evening. You can relax on the terrace or in one of...

Came here for a get away from the hustle and bustle of Marrakech. The whole hotel had a calming relaxed feel to it. Reception staff were really excellent, English not a problem! Rooms were simple but tasteful, had a sea view suite which was great, breakfast was really good. Service was brilliant, and the owner welcomed us one morning over...

We spent 5 nights at the Villa Maroc on our honeymoon and we loved every minute of our stay here. The property itself is actually 4 adjoining riads interconnected by candlelit passages and stone spiral staircases leading off to a plethora of small sitting rooms and climbing up to a fabulous roof terrace with glorious views of the old harbour...

The location is great for exploring the old city and port; the building is lovely, with roof terraces and cool courtyards. Some rooms evidently have beautiful views, others open onto the courtyards, at various levels. Everywhere is cool, clean and nicely furnished.

I went here for the third time - this time with my family including two small grandchildren. Villa Maroc is like a home away from home, but better. Fantastic breakfasts on the terrace with views over the sea and beautiful Essaouira, wonderful rooms and beds, friendly service and the most savourous dinners served in small, cosy rooms.

I just recently spent a week at Villa Maroc for a yoga retreat with a group of 12 girls.

We instantly felt at home after checking in at Villa Maroc. Situated in the middle of the medina and Essaouira, this place also feels like a tucked away retreat. Once inside the Villa, you smell the wood burning fireplaces, are overtaken by the coastal Moroccan decor and smells of the sea. The place is clean and spacious, one of the...

For me, this hotel gets a mixed review. The service was very good and friendly. We had dinner one night here in a private space and it was just lovely.
