Came here for a get away from the hustle and bustle of Marrakech. The whole hotel had a calming relaxed feel to it. Reception staff were really excellent, English not a problem! Rooms were simple but tasteful, had a sea view suite which was great, breakfast was really good. Service was brilliant, and the owner welcomed us one morning over... More

We spent 5 nights at the Villa Maroc on our honeymoon and we loved every minute of our stay here. The property itself is actually 4 adjoining riads interconnected by candlelit passages and stone spiral staircases leading off to a plethora of small sitting rooms and climbing up to a fabulous roof terrace with glorious views of the old harbour...

The location is great for exploring the old city and port; the building is lovely, with roof terraces and cool courtyards. Some rooms evidently have beautiful views, others open onto the courtyards, at various levels. Everywhere is cool, clean and nicely furnished.

I went here for the third time - this time with my family including two small grandchildren. Villa Maroc is like a home away from home, but better. Fantastic breakfasts on the terrace with views over the sea and beautiful Essaouira, wonderful rooms and beds, friendly service and the most savourous dinners served in small, cosy rooms.

We instantly felt at home after checking in at Villa Maroc. Situated in the middle of the medina and Essaouira, this place also feels like a tucked away retreat. Once inside the Villa, you smell the wood burning fireplaces, are overtaken by the coastal Moroccan decor and smells of the sea. The place is clean and spacious, one of the... More

For me, this hotel gets a mixed review. The service was very good and friendly. We had dinner one night here in a private space and it was just lovely. However, my room was on the second floor above the laundry room area and it was noisy with little air and not that nice. The rooftop terrace and breakfast was... More

This wonderful place exceeded all expectations. The location is perfect, with a beach view and walking distance to the water, while also being right in the medina of Essaouira.
