This was my least favorite hotel of the three weeks in Morocco. It's over 60 years old and showing its age. Breakfast buffet was barely okay. The eggs on the line were cold but you could order eggs cooked as you wanted them. Had dinner there one night and it was okay, but that's about it. The room was clean... More

Located just outside main walls, where you can still drive up to. Has its own parking at front, and looks out over sea and walking distance to beach (the road in front is currently being upgraded to a promenade as an effort by town to improve facilities I think...). Hotel has an feel of ancient grandeur, lovely old furniture and... More

Yes it is certainly the best location for this hotel close to the beach and about 100 m from the medina ö if you are not looking for one of these charm hotels or riad in the medina itself. Comfortable and beautiful rooms, on 2 floors, large premises, large pool area (sunbathing without much wind!). Very good hotel for smaller... More

The hotel did the basics right: hot water, large enough room, comfortable bed, quiet for sleeping, good breakfast, helpful staff, wifi in the lobby. There is an old world (slightly faded) charm to the hotel and grounds. The location in perfect: across from the beach and just steps from the port, restaurants, and the Medina.

The seaside rooms seemed appealing but the noise of traffic all night long on the promenade in front spoiled my sleep so I moved to a room looking over the pool and gardens on the other side, which was so much better. The staff were helpful and friendly and the restaurant pleasant. A comfortable stay but not if I'd kept... More

Yes, this hotel is in a great location right across from the beach and close to the medina. Our room had a lovely ocean view and was quite spacious. We did have hot water. The hotel was probably once the queen in the area but is now in such disrepair it no longer deserves any royal label. The bathroom had... More

Overall, our stay here was lovely! We were a little out of season, so it was quiet & not all food was served that was listed on the menu, however with so many restaurants close by this didn't effect our stay.Our room was lovely & big, the bathroom needs a little maintenance but apart from this, it was nice.

We had a great time in Essaouira. The hotel has a great location on the beach and close to the medina. Rooms are clean and comfortable. The staff are wonderful they could not have done more to make our stay comfortable. So friendly and helpful. Food was good. While rooms are basic they are very comfortable.

We stayed 3 nights in the Hotel des Iles. The location is wonderful--right on the beach and next to the Medina. It is noisy, though, with the traffic from Blvd. Mohammed V going right by your window. The breakfast was great--one of the best we had in Morocco--and the service was very good at breakfast. The people at the front... More
