Happy with this hotel. The rooms are great and spacious. The showers are clean and big. The staff is friendly enough - not much interaction, but not much needed. If you are looking for authentic Morocco, this is not it, but it is awesome if you are looking for somewhere nice, clean, relaxing, and within walking distance to most major attractions in the city. Restaurants not the best, but why would you eat at a hotel restaurant when all the local food around?

Oh, very nice beach views from the room also.

This establishment is advertised as a 5* hotel. It is however far from that rating.

On arrival we were asked to sit down and fill in required check-in documents. We were not offered any refreshment or a single glass of water. Quite surprising for a 5* establishment.

There was no tea&coffee making facilities in the room, no bottle of water provided. Again, this is a normal for 5* hotels.

The amenities were basic. Room was comfortable but the A/C seemed not to be working that well.

The building gives an impression that was built not so log time ago but the room was already quite ‘tired’ and bit neglected.
Breakfast was fair but when there was a lot of guest the staff was not able to cope with the service. The same refers to the swimming pool. At the peak times there was literally no place to accommodate all the guests willing to rest at the swimming pool area. The sunbeds was placed very close to each other, guest were squeezed as the sardines.

Dinning options were very limited. The international buffet offered by in one of the restaurants was a huge disappointment (very limited selection of food, quite cold food).

Finally the spa. We have booked a room with a 1h-spa package which was a joke as it gave us only an access to the little pool and a small gym. Do not bother.

Staff was trying to be helpful (especially those at the swimming pool an breakfast) but the ones at the main reception did not show any understanding when we asked for a late check out (1h later) and had a quite an attitude when we have asked for a detailed explanation of our bill.

Would not stay here again.

Nice place in front of the beach. Can not be rated as 5 stars (services and food are not in the level of a 5 stars hotel). Despite of the room to be ready at the check-in time, Front-desk staff asked me to wait for 20 minutes to have my room key..... Room was ok. Breakfast is below the average expected to a hotel entitled as 5 stars.

Room Tip: don't expect much, but it's a nice place to stay in.

We stayed for 5 nights and had a lovely time, it's right on the beach(too windy for sunbathing) but the pool area was lovely for relaxing. You would expect a bit more deluxe for a 5 star but for £60 with breakfast it was a bargain. We didn't eat in the restaurant as it looked expensive and The Medina was only 20 minutes away. There was a bar a few minutes walk away that is nice to drink in and watch the world go by

Room Tip: Get the breakfast included as it's well worth it

The Hotel is located directly on the beach and is cca 20 mins walking from the old town. Essaouira is the heaven for kiters and surfers so when planning your trip here be aware of really strong wind (on a daily basis). The Hotel has everything what can you expect - amazing entrance, helpful and friendly staff, tasty breakfast, several restaurants & bars (expensive), pool and spa... Everything was really maintained, clean and mostly in european style but we would still expect more from the 5* Hotel.

The Hotel would need some repairs and the cleanliness in the rooms on the ground floor could be improved. Except phone ringing extremely loudly 5-7 times EACH night we did not complain about anyhing.

Room Tip: Standard double rooms are on the ground floor have their own patio which we really enjoyed (the other do not have even balcony) but the cleanliness could be better.
