“Hotel to avoid at any cost”
Reviewed October 18, 2012

Very bad hotel, small room, bad service, staff not clean.
The worst was a very strong headache in the morning after a night sleep.
Through analysis of the possible causes. I found out that the only possibility was that my head was located very close to the power cable of the TV screen of my neighbour (remember the rooms are very very small!)

The breakfast was unbelievably bad, awful coffee, no fruit ( yes I repeat no fruit).
A hotel to avoid at any cost.
There is no value for money since I could not find the value anywhere.

yes the pool is ok but that is Capex and not Opex !

Room Tip: Avoid the hotel at all cost BUT go to the Sofitel instead. You will find there the word "Value...

Nice hotel, with average rooms. Lovely big pool which is nice as the hotel is not very close to the beach. Breakfast was buffet style and very nice. Staff were very friendly. Would recommend to others especially if you are not in to the cosy riad style hotels which are typical in Morocco.

Though located around half a hours walk from Medina, it's a nice comfortable hotel to stay at. Rooms are basic, comfortable and clean. Poolside is nice and the bar is decent. It is at least 15minutes walk from the beach. And if you a late night eater, there is nothing close by and hotel kitchens just serves paninis as late night snacks!
Will definitely recommend it!

A typical Ibis hotel but the staff makes the difference.
What seems a budget chain in Europe is more stylish in Morocco.
The rooms are not too big but comfy enough.
All worked and diner was good.
Breakfast was fine and I don't mind coming back.
Easy to find hotel if you on-route south.
Not much more to say.

Room Tip: Some mosquito prophylactic might be useful in the season

We have just returned from a hotel to Essaouira - The hotel was better than expected from reading some of the reviews - We went half board and the food was very repeatitive and a bit boring so would defin not recommend eating half board with the hotel - If you chose food fromt he hotel menu it was much better.
The bar and restaurant (and basically the entire hotel) shuts down at approx 11pm - With not much nightlife around Essaouira it can get very dull not ideal if you looking to party of an evening.
The hotel was overall clean and the staff were amazing - in particular 1 member of staff who spoke very good english and was able to recommend places and things to do.

Room Tip: Select a room facing the swimming pool and not the road

There were two main reasons we booked this hotel - price and pool! Firstly I have to say the pool area was clean, as was our room. I know this is a budget hotel, but the hotel had such little decor it felt like we were staying in a hospital. It was extremely dull, and the staff were not very friendly. The floor in the room was like a plastic matting, which we only realised on noticing it was wet. We then realised this was because it had recently been mopped - strange!!??!?! It may be a few mins walk to the beach, but not the main part of the beach near the medina. We stayed one night and swiftly moved on!

Room Tip: Don't stay here at all!!!
