Love this place. Beautifully decorated, clean rooms, sunny weather, right next to a quiet beach. Very lovely staff that run the villa and a good breakfast included in the stay. Wifi access is available although quite slow. The beach and village itself are absolutely lovely minus the fact that on some days, the wind is quite extreme and can make sitting out on the beach unattractive. However, on those days you can retreat to the hotel where the high walls block out the wind and you can lay in a hammock or sit in a chair on your sun porch. Inexpensive restaurants serving fresh fish right by the water. The only drawbacks for us were first that we didn't know the hotel was cash only and there is no ATM or bank in Sidi Kaouki so one person went with us back to Essaouira so we could pay them. Also, it was Ramadan so the hotel was not serving any dinner but a couple of other places do serve dinner (although options are limited). Only wish we could have stayed longer. A very relaxing place.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Hotel Villa Soleil is the brainchild of a Belgian couple who had five bungalows build in the grounds of a villa, to create a total of nine hotel rooms. Every room has its own patio, shower, washbasin and toilet. The hotel is conceived as an Arab medina with little alleyways, stone arches and antique wooden gateways and doorways. There is a spacious courtyard with palm trees and a few smaller courts where breakfast is served and which are delightful spots for a peaceful sojourn. The first floor of the villa has a penthouse comprising a Moroccan lounge, two bedrooms with double bed, a bathroom with bad and shower and a spacious balcony overlooking the sea. Plage de Sidi Kaouki Essaouira, one of the best surfing spots in the world. Plage de Sidi Kaouki is on the Atlantic ocean about 20 km south of Essaouira. (160 km from Agadir, 150 km from Marrakech) It has miles of sandy beach and is encircled by extensive woodland. It is a rural area where you will have the opportunity to meet the barbers and see their way of live. ... more less
