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

I used to work with a factory down the road from the hotel and stayed here many times in the late 80's & early 90's when there were few hotels and fewer tourists. Their morning breakfast of a crossiant, coffee and tangerine juice was amazing

Location could not be better. Rooms were clean, beds comfortable, linens nice, water hot, plumbing worked, air conditioning adequate, staff friendly and helpful. Breakfast was average for mid level Morocco hotel. Pool was fine, even though we were a bit early in the season. Two levels with only stairs for the upper, so if that's a problem, be sure to...
