“Excellent for a week end break”
Reviewed October 14, 2013

W've been to the Arganeraie for a short break.
We loved the spaceful rooms, the clean and peaceful atmosphere and the warm yet professional service.
Children enjoyed the swimmingpool (september) and the large garden.
Breakfast and meals were good.

We'd definitly go back there and recommand the place.

Thank you.

We stayed at this place for only one night but would have loved to stay at least a week! We were a group of 18 people on a tour on the Atlantic Coast.The hotel is formed by ten different villas very well furnished and immersed in a gorgeous park of argan trees, with a great swimming pool. The place is an oasis of peace and calm and it is very near the beautiful little town of Essaouira (about 8 kilometres). Dinner and breakfast were very good and we especially remember the great hospitality of Maryse and her husband who made us feel completely at home. They were very kind and happily helped us with any requests. We will definetely go back and stay some more at this beatiful place.

A bit far from Essouira (10mn by taxi), this is "L'Arganeraie", an oasis of silence and beauty...
10 lux and confortable riad for 8/10 persons on a really nice Domain (trees, green grass, turtle... and ute swimming pool).
Helful, smily and available french & local staff.
Nice breakfast.
Thank you.

This is a great place for families. We stayed here for a week and loved it. The Riads are very nice, not luxurious but spacious and well furnished with nice outdoor spaces. The garden and the staff are lovely and the pool is huge and perfect for kids. The Domaine is about 10 minutes drive from Essaouira (don't be put off by the slightly ragged surroundings and the very poor track leading there). All is all great place. If anything could be improved it would be the food which is decent but not amazing.

We stayed with a group of 20 adultes and children for a weekend. The staf makes you feel relaxed and you can ask anything. The women who prepared all meals for us were so good in their work, very friendly and they understand big groups well. The villas are clean and well maintained. The swimmingpool is so big you have space to play and swim without disturbing others. And it is in a nice garden full of flowers, argane trees and turtles! All the guests were very content with the villas and the domaine. It is true the road is a bit difficult but at this moment the gouvernement is making it better. To find the domaine, just ask the staff how to get there and you will find it.

Room Tip: specially the small villas have beautifull rooms

We loved our (too) short stay at Arganeraie. As some of the reviews point out, it is some way from Essaouira and it is down a dirt track, but if you are looking for somewhere to chill out, relax, eat good food and drink wine, then this place is perfect. We had two nights in Arganeraie and then a couple of days in Es town to explore, which worked great for us.
There was a small group of us, only 3 friends, but we were housed in a beautiful massive villa, with our own kitchen, living room and multiple terraces. The villas are well spaced out so whilst you are in amongst other people staying there you do feel separate, and the grounds are lovely. The pool area is really nice, and the pool itself very clean.
From the moment we got there everyone was so happy to help us. All of the villas have their own kitchen and you have the option of having your own cook for the night. The food we ate was undoubtedly the best food we ate in Morocco hands down. The breakfast was included in the room price and was also delicious. We could not quite believe the standard of the accommodation or food for the price.
Cesar and the team made us feel really at home and they went out of their way to help us.
Cannot recommend this place highly enough! We would love to go back again.

Perfect, is the only word I can think of! This gorgeous riad has been decorated with such a good taste, and our room had the most incredible view on the coast and the Island of Mogador! It is so quiet and relaxing. You feel at home as soon as you arrive. I do highly recommend having dinner there, too! A special thanks to all members of the staff, it has been years since we had such a high quality service. For sure, we will be back.
