Located a short walk from the old walled town or medina, this modern hotel in Essaouira provides luxury and comfort in its bedrooms which either overlook the sheltered oval-shaped pool or the long, sandy beach. There is an impressive atrium and large breakfast area but the Moroccan restaurant with traditional fare, open in the evening, did not appeal. Cote Plage, the hotel's beachside restaurant serves an international menu and light meals could be had at lunchtime beside the pool. Service poolside was exasperatingly slow and, not surprisingly for a luxury hotel, prices were high compared to what could be found in some excellent restaurants in the medina.
The standard of housekeeping was very high. Bedrooms and bathrooms were spotlessly clean and the maids friendly and smiling. Reception staff, on the other hand, were not at all helpful. Although we speak French, they failed to communicate important information on several occasions during a week-long stay!
