A little bit dated but still a very nice hotel with lovely spacious rooms and a big swimming pool. Perfect for hot days in Essaouira. Service is very friendly, and the premises are clean. It's very well located right in front of the beach and 3-4 minutes walk to the medina. I would highly recommend booking a room with a...

Nice Hotel in a historical building, the services is nice and competent, the price for the breakfast buffet is a bit too much for what they offer, when something is finish they don't replace it... the rooms are not that renovated as you would wait for a 5 Stars hotel (AC didn't really work). The things: very near to beach,...

Stayed for 6 night vacation and Thalasso program. Karima & Ayoub at Front Desk were outstanding. Karima noted on arrival (looking at passport) that it was a B'day and we received a surprise cake after dinner, great touch. They had a guest relation person, Nabil, that checked with us if everything was all right. Our first room was next to...

I was going to stay at the Sofitel but rhe location is not ideal. This jotel is across the street from the beach and a 10 minute walk to the Medina. I stayed in an executive suite overlooking the pool and the room is starting to look it's age. Staff is very pleasant, overall a very good hotel.

The room and facilities were good in a decent location from the medina and beach. The staff were attentive when it came to ordering food and drinks but a couple of times our orders were forgotten. Drinks were fairly expensive but I suppose this is what you get for pool side luxury. Beer around £5 for a small bottle (flag...

We stayed in Essaouria for one night and stayed at Le Medina which is right on the coast. It is walking distance to the beach and to the medina. In the morning we took a surfing lesson at a local surf shop and really enjoyed that. It is about 10-15 min walk to the fishing area which is definitely worth...

There was no access by car to the hotel due to construction on the day we arrived. Walking four blocks is acceptable but not with heavy luggage in tow. Just picture it-- the hot pink baby grand in the lobby. The room was heavily laden with the artificial spray of orange blossoms a la nicotine. The decor was outdated and...
