I read some of the comments posted on this site, so I was a wit skeptical, and as usual, it's all about 'guts'. In those times and days every one feels he/she has the power of the internet.... Villa de l'O is a nice little guest house, ideally located a few steps from the beach, a great view, a REAL rooftop terrace, unlike the zillion of Ryads in town with a handkerchief size rooftop and no experience as such...Yes it could be better, but you get what you pay for.
The front office staff is always present and friendly with good recommendations. Yes a more visible Maitre/esse de Maison would be great to see, at the same time I have stayed in may guest houses and sometimes it is like that and you feel you just rented a home and see no one at all! The Villa was full but only met a few guests at breakfast, with a view and the bees and the seagulls trying to knick my croissant! All part of a charming experience with a colonial style that makes you travel in time in Mogador.I'll be back!
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Sheltered by the Medina walls, Villa de l'O is located at few meters from the beach, the souks, and at the doors of the Essaouira golf court. Eighteenth-century riad, the architectural spirit of Villa de l'O is given by the subtle alchemy between stone, sculpted wood, and the quivering of the beautifully made fabrics. Refined, the modern decoration of the house combines the oriental and colonial spirit. ... more less
