Stayed here for 3 nights in March. The Riad is in an excellent location, it is stunningly decorated, the rooms are comfortable, clean and of a good size. I checked trip advisor whilst in Morocco and visited a couple of Riads in the top 10, but found this one by chance, am so glad i did. Would not hesitate to...

A beautiful atmospheric hotel. We stayed in room 3,decorated in a Moroccon style with lovely lights and a shower cubicle that felt like Dr Who`s tardis.The room overlooked the school, but the pupils are quiet. A little noisier when it is home time but not a problem. The owners could not have been friendlier or more helpful, indeed this applies...

This Riad is lovely, very homely with a definite female touch. The decoration had been well thought out, room was small (room 6) but perfectly formed and kept clean each day with a large comfortable bed. We were on the 1st floor and had balcony doors which opened so we could watch the street below. There is a school opposite,...

A wonderful riad run by a delightful team. The hotel is beautifully decorated in a gentle morrocan style that ouzes calmness and serenity. The staff are deligtful and cope well with bumbling "english" french. Mint tea is on tap and always delivered with a smile. Great location with a 5 minute walk to anywhere you would want to go.

This is a very nice property - the owners and staff are lovely, they have cosy fires going in winter, the rooms are well decorated and clean with nice bathrooms, and it is very centrally located. The only real negative is that there is a school opposite, so the rooms at the front can be noisy during the day, but...

A riad in all but name... Great value, we deliberately opted for the cheapest room (number 5) which suffered slightly from a lack of natural light but we thought it was well furnished and were very comfortable there. €45 per night. Efficiently run by French women, who also speak English so don't worry if your French isn't fluent. Nice breakfast...

This is a really nice place to stay - charming inside, really carefully decorated - the inner courtyard part of the riad is lovely. The terrace is windy, but hey this is Essaioura! Really nice breakfast - in fact one of the best from our trip after 2 weeks of endless basic bread and jam. I was very pleased to...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Villa Garance is a charming, spacious riad, beautifully decorated inside, with bags of history and charm, and is located in a small street in the heart of the Medina, only a short walk from the ramparts and the Atlantic ocean. You will be truly delighted with everything that Villa Garance had to offer: elegant, clean and large bedrooms (10 single, double, twin or for families up to 5 people, from 15 to 35 m²); the large roof terrace with distant sea views, where a delicious and hearty homemade breakfast is served in the sunshine, where you can have sunbathe with a book throughout the day; and the charming and helpful owners Marie and Pierre, who are extremely friendly and give you lots of information on the history of Essaouira along with recommendations for restaurants and activities. All bedrooms are heated, with private bathroom, and have large windows except two of them which give access to a bright patio. Lunch, diner and massage can be arranged. ... more   less
