A wonderfully modern villa with plenty of space and facilities for 6 of us. I travelled with my wife, daughter and friend (22/23) and my son and his friend (both 14).
We all had a fabulous time and the villa served us well. There are many villas in a secure privately gated road, affiliated to the Sofitel next door. I understand all the villas are a similar size and it catered brilliantly for the 6 of us.
Small niggles were that the AC doesn't work very well in the smaller bedrooms (fine in the lounges and master bedroom), we had some problems with the lights and a small water leak.
However I think the villa still deserved 5 stars as I wold not expect this quality for the money in Morocco, it would have cost us more than double the amount to stay in the Sofitel and we would not have had the space.
The sofitel is only 10 minutes walk and the boys used the gym daily, most days it was a real toss up for us villa vs hotel, both came out winners in the end!
I also highly recommend the quad biking, we used Palma Quad who came and collected us from the villa for free.
Wonderful 1 week stay, if I ever go back to the area I will book one of these villas again.
I recently stayed in Villa Tangier with my family for 7 nights, and we had the most fantastic stay!
We had not visited Essaouria before, but this villa had been recommended to us and it didn't disappoint! The villa itself was luxurious, very clean and had everything we needed and more for our stay. The private pool was great, and most of our time was spent around the pool or on the roof terrace. The staff were friendly and extremely helpful with anything we needed.
When we did leave our villa it was only a 15 minute stroll down to the beach (through the golf course) or a 10 minute taxi ride to the Medina (which cost about 40 dirhams/ £4). So the location was excellent too. One day we even walked down to the beach, and along the coast to the town center - this took around 1 hour but it was a lovely walk.
I'd also recommend visiting 'Beach & Friends' cafe which is about half way in between the villa and town center. It has a lovely atmosphere and as it's facing the beach it is a great place to watch the sunset - the sunsets in Essaouira were magical.
Overall we had a fabulous holiday at Villa Tangier. Great luxury villa in an beautiful location. We will be back!
