Brilliant hotel in a great location
A very friendly hotel with a private beach. The room was large and we had a huge comfortable bed. Any issues with the room were dealt with promptly. Will definitely return to this hotel if we visit Essaouira again.

GREAT Hotel!!
This decor in this hotel is a bit eclectic but it is so nice. Beautiful courtyard with swimming pool, where you can have breakfast or dinner or go for a nice swim. Really great bar that serves amazing drinks till late. The bar has a very nice relaxing atmosphere. The hotel also has a really nice restaurant located across the street which is right on the beach. The food and drinks were great here! Also, attached to this restaurant is a private beach area (that is for the hotel guests only) where you can lay in the sun in one of the lounge chairs and/or order food and drinks from the restaurant. It is overall a great place to relax and enjoy the finer things in life :).
Matthew, us2 night trip with friends
Very good 8.0
The check in amd check out takes very long . The breakfast was also laid out in a haphazard manner.
gb1 night trip with friends
Good 6.0
The hotel is in a good location close to both the beach and the medina but the rooms could certainly use an update. We initially went with no reservation and asked at the desk if they had rooms available and were told the only room was a suite at $200 a night. I went on the Orbitz app after leaving and found there were other rooms available at half the price, so I booked online. When we went back to check-in we were told that they didn't want to recommend the other rooms because they didn't have the seaview - which was irrelevant to us as we were staying one night. Give guests the option don't say something that's not true. The pool area is a nice amenity and the entry area also nice. The beds and pillows were soft (sometimes hard to find in Morocco) but the bathroom and closets etc are in need of an update.
