I am very confused by reports abot this hotel, this report follows some very positive ones, I can only imagine that the writers were lucky or have pretty low expectations. This hotel has had a reputation as the place to stay in Essaouria. Not any more! Essaouria is wonderful, everything the guides say and more. There are many riads and... More

A very special hotel, akin to a riad, in an excellent location close to the harbour. Beautifully furnished, a fascinating warren of rooms and seating alcoves, firendly staff and excellent food. I was concerned about the possibility of noise at night as many rooms encircle the open central courtyard but, apart from loud music from the hotel next door which... More

Always difficult to book on the net especially when the reviews are not the best, but I had a feeling that this place was just what we wanted! Bull's eyes! Such a charming and romantic place with the warm atmosphere you are looking for ;) All rooms are different (ask for the one with fireplace or on the roof top),... More

We booked 6 nights here after seeing the web site. When we arrived we immediately asked to change rooms, (which we were told, was not possible). We later heard other couples ask to be moved. Our suite (22) comprised of 3 rooms- a pig ugly sitting room, a cramped, charmelss bedroom and a disgusting, mouldy bathroom! Having just come from... More

Our first time at the Villa Maroc in May. We had a very comfortable stay at what I would describe as a quirky and unusual hotel. I understand that all the rooms are different, but each has I think a small sitting room area, bedroom and bathroom. The public areas are beautifully decorated with some stunning art and antiques. The... More

I stayed here for one night in a double room and i firmly believe it does not deserve the 100 pounds we spent on it. First of all the price of the room is too much for what its offering.. For 68 pounds the room was not that good and it was very simple. However, the hotel as a total... More

3 hour bus ride from Marrakech costing 65 dirhams (AUD$9) to Essaouira on the coast, rocky landscape, good, but narrow road. 30 dirhams (AUD$5) for porter to take me & my luggage to Villa Maroc. 4 houses combined into beautiful boutique hotel, maze of staircases, salons, terraces and suites. Fabulous coastal view from rooftop terraces. Decorated with antiques and art,... More

We stayed two nights at the Villa Maroc. The rooms were simple and a bit small after the more luxurious riad we stayed at in Marrakesh, but clean and comfortable. Dinners are served in small rooms with 2-3 tables and usually a fireplace -- very cozy. The food was good and the service friendly. The location is very practical, close... More

I stayed here for two days and really enjoyed this riad. It's got a charming winding layout with lovely courtyards and inviting lounging rooms, many with fireplaces. My standard room was simple but quite nice and spacious with a high ceiling. It had a small modern bathroom. I had a nice dinner in front of the fireplace my first night... More

A great hotel to stay and relax. We had a room on the roof terrace with a great view. Breakfast and dinner are very recommendable.
