    Essouira historical retreat

    Very quiet and beautiful! Great location too if you don’t mind a 20 minute walk on the beach to the Médina. Nice breakfast!

    Beautiful riad in what was once someone’s huge house. The rooms are big and there very nice sitting/reading rooms and patios guests can enjoy. The courtyard and pool was also very nice and would be great in warmer weather! The riad is located about a 10 minute walk to the medina and across the street from the ocean. There are several beachfront restaurants across the street and other options a short walk away. If you’re looking for a relaxing stay outside the bustle of the medina, Villa Quieta is a great option

  • 8.0.Very good


    I can’t understand all the rave reviews. This place is out of town with no restaurant or bar and all the surrounding restaurants were closed too. It is cold inside in the winter. My room was large and comfortable. I was given an upgrade l think to a suite. There was only heating in the bedroom so the sitting area and bathroom were very cold. Pool area is nice enough. Breakfast was ok but not amazing like l was expecting after reading the reviews. I left some things behind in the bathroom and when l rang several hours later they couldn’t find them which l thought was poor.

    Great staff, old buliding

    I want to start by saying the staff who work here are lovely - super nice and helpful. Every single one! My poor review is for the facilities. Everything needs care. It seems like they haven't replaced drapes, carpet or repaired things in a long time. It does seem like that's pretty much the state of all the hotels in town. It's pretty tired.

    Highly Recommend. Excellent service and location.

    Me and my friend stayed at the villa for three nights and we could not have asked for a better stay. Excellent service, decor, location, food, beverage, friendliness, etc... Highly recommend! Close to the beach, restaurants, and medina. Peaceful and clean.

    This hotel exceeded our expectations especially on quality and price ratio. The hotel is beautiful in its deco, open, spacey and airy. Lovely garden for resting and a good size swimming pool to cool down. The room was spacious and the beds very comfortable. Outside the room there is a seating lounging area marrocan style. The hotel is far enough from the medina to avoid the noisy but close enough for a nice walk.
