We - my wife, daughter of 3 and I - have been to Villa Damonte at the end of April this year. We were travelling by public transport and hey, somewhere we had in our minds that it was close to the cost - walking distance - and a couple of km's from Essaouira. The last was true. A couple of km's from Essaouira but unfortunately also far away from the coast.
Taxi's drive by but are always packed with people as this Riad lays in between two villages. Busses go on certain times and seem to be strict so ask the reception. Apart from that, we have been picked up a couple of times by people passing in their cars. Friendly Maroccans mostly and the French woman that has the restaurant opposite of the Riad.
The staff is overfriendly and very willing to make your stay as good as they can get it for you. When we arrived it was quite empty and we got the biggest room in the Riad. A clean and spacious room with a large balcony. Breakfast is on the patio and is what you get everywhere in Morocco. No surprises but okay. Staff was very friendly for our 3-years old daughter. No single negative point I can mention on the staff in the 7 days we stayed in Damonte.
Staying here is possible without having your own transportation. If you have however, this is a very nice spot with good value for money. For sure recommended.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Today, Hotel Riad Damonte Villa is a hotel of tranquility, and what about yesterday? Yesterday, it was a villa with a mixture of Arab, Berber and Andalusian architectures. Not only does it benefit from its proximity to the city but also from the advantages of the countryside (forest all around) and above all from the beautiful smell coming from the sea. ... more less
