Le Douar des Arganiers was definitely the best place we have stayed in Morocco. The house has very calm and the same time modern atmosphere; Tania could tastefully mix the Alpine and Moroccan design elements. All rooms are nice, clean and very spacious, with comfortable beds and very fine linen. The house is eco-friendly, it is powered by solar panels, and the garden is watered using recycled water. The service was excellent; Tania and Ali are great hosts. They are very kind, informative and helpful. We tried Ali`s restaurant (Chez Ali) at the beach and we had couscous for dinner at the hotel, both were great. The breakfast was hearty and varied, with home-made jams and local goat cheese. Overall we warmly recommend the place, we have felt ourselves like at home. Although Sidi Kaouki is about 25 km to Essaouria, it can be easily reached by grand taxi or local bus (it’s an experience itself :). It has an endless beach with horses, camels, and some windsurfers, sometime caravans. If you are not windsurfing or kiting, still worth to visit the place, you can find some tranquility, especially after Marrakesh. The water was quite cold in October, so best have a wetsuit.
