I've been to seaside many times, but on this occasion was recommended this hotel by our hotel concierge. Since he got a "deal" out of busy period, I was not unhappy than I would have been had I paid rack rate of €150. We choose it from website, which is very misleading ! It is not actually on the beachfront,... More

Great set up to have a beer/wine while facing the beach and having a relaxing lunch. Oysters were briney in a good way. Fish was good not great. Very crispy good fries. Excellent setting, cats were a little whiny. Popular hangout during a quiet week and then not a long stroll to the medina.

Ocean Vagabond is a real cool place to hang out in the day listening to good music, eating a nice lunch and watching the beach and the kite surfers, camels and horses on the beach. It has a very sunny location with nice day beds for people to lie on or deck chairs to sit and drink a nice chilled... More

I travelled to Essaouira with my Mum for a short sunny break and relaxation. The hotel was beautifully decorated and we were upgraded to the Pondichery suite with a pool view, due to the hotel being less than fully booked, which was great! They ensured our room was clean without being invasive! Throughout our stay the staff made us feel... More

stayed here for 3 days R&R, meeting up with with my wife after climbing Mount Jebel Toubkal. The hotel sits on a long corniche and offers great views over the spectacular beach and is just a short walk into the centre of this iconic town. the hotel has a relaxed and easy vibe and serves extremely generous measures of Gin!

Had some difficulties finding a good triple room in Essaouira. But Ocean Vagabond had a suite Jaipur in two floors with a small balcony toward the sea. Nice view! Had a double room upstairs (bed was quite noisy) and had a small bed downstairs. Nice bathroom. Rose pedals everywhere. Beautiful. Very good breakfast, freshly baked bread (two kind), cake, yoghurt,... More

We enjoyed two nights here in November. We were the only guests but were well looked after. The guesthouse is slightly set back from the beach and ideally placed for all things: the medina, the beach, the new town and even the RC church! There is a pretty little garden and a small bathing pool - and your breakfast is... More

We were happy to find this place in essaouira as it offered us a great place to relax were you can also find a very extended menu with international cuisine, ranging from burgers to pizzas but also more exquisite dishes as oisters or fresh Tuna. Wines are great, it is a very busy place where service is sometimes a bit... More

Staying in a riad in the Essaouira medina we fancied a change from the bustle of the old town and took our swimming gear to the Ocean Vagabond where, for 120 dirhams (60 for children) we had the pool to ourselves in a beautiful garden with plenty of shade. The pool is quite small and 150cm deep at most, with... More

A lovely friendly hotel. Staff are so friendly and helpful beyond expectation - even accompanying us to hospital when my son had a medical emergency in the early hours. Nothing is too much trouble and their care kindness was humbling - especially Amina who was so so helpful when we needed it. Thank you The hotel is a comfortable size... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Ocean Vagabond enjoys the best of both worlds: a perfect location in the enchanting Atlantic resort of Essaouira, just a stone's throw from the fine sandy beach of the bay, yet it is only a few minute's walk to the colourful souks and shops of the old walled Medina. The hotel offers14 well-equipped rooms and suites, each is unique and stylishly designed, but all are spacious and bright, united by attention to detail and comfort. All rooms come with an en suite bathroom (bath or shower), mini bar, safe, heating, satellite TV, phone and Wi-Fi. Most rooms have a private terrace or balcony with views, overlooking the ocean, the gardens or the Medina. There are also several inter-connecting rooms, which are ideal for families. Outside, a good-size heated swimming pool is set in a pretty garden, provides an ideal spot for guests to while away the hours, sunbathing, reading or just relaxing. Tucked away at the back of the garden, is the hotel's intimate Oriental Spa, offering guests a good choice of beauty treatments, massage and hammam. In addition, guests can participate in the many activities available on the beach, just across the road from the hotel, such as swimming, water sports or even camel riding...... Our charming "L'O' Restaurant, looks out over the gardens and offers an enticing selection of Moroccan and Mediterranean cuisine. Ocean Vagabond offers plenty of communal spaces and quiet corners for both adults and children to chill out in: a cosy lounge overlooks the gardens and has comfy sofas, floor cushions and an open-fire. Our library and reading room on the mezzanine floor, with its comfortable leather chairs, good selection of books, 42" satellite TV and DVD player, is a great favorite with our guests, as is our cozy African Colonial-style bar. ... more   less
