One of the best hotels we have ever stayed in. Very friendly staff , the quality of service and facilities is second to none.
Quality of hotel, staff & location
A real 5*.
An oasis of calm, understated luxury, delicious breakfasts. We loved it.
The roof terrace,bar and swimming pool closed at 6pm which seemed ridiculous.
swimming pool/ terrace. The hotel has a colonial feel in the decor.
The dining area and bedroom. A basic single is very small with no window and very little light making the room feel damp and drab. I think the hotel is nice enough overall but very over-priced ( basic double works out around £125 p/n )and the staff at times were a little difficult to communicate with. One member of staff was quite rude and un-helpful. The breakfast was very basic for a 5 * hotel but the food was reasonable quality. The dining area lacks any atmosphere and it can be quite cold in the breakfast area in the morning as it in an open-air patio down on the ground floor which does not get any sunshine. Sound carries all over the hotel and you could hear the washing machine late at night from a first floor double room so book an expensive top floor suite if you want peace and quiet and a window in your room.
Staff at front desk very helpful and friendly. We especially liked the door man! The location is good, although not on the beach, but personally I would prefer to be closer to the town so it's only a short walk to the restaurants etc in the evening. The beach is only 5 mins walk away. We arranged a tour through the hotel which I would recommend - although be warned the tour guide we had hardly spoke any English so it was more a case of being shown sites rather than learning about the history etc. The breakfast is great There is a cinema room which is perfect if your feeling a bit tired. We had a drink in the bar before going out to supper which was very nice
No tea / coffee facilities in the room - was charged for tea to be brought to the room which I though was unfair. When it was brought to the room the lady wouldn't give me the tray for some reason (she didn't speak English) and thrust a boiling hot teapot into my hand -ouch! No minibar in the room - when we mentioned this a kind man brought us a fridge, however it would be nice to have some drinks in it! The rooftop pool was freezing (I don't think it's heated). We didn't really use the roof terrace as a result. The room was small and dark - although it was nicely done - all of the rooms face an internal courtyard which means that unless we had the door / window shutters closed people walking past could see in. One of the magazines in the hotel advertised a restaurant / bar called Taros - DON'T GO unless you want to spend two days with food poisoning. When we went to see the owner to complain he was possibly the rudest, vilest man we have ever met. Check your bill at the end - they had added someone else's drinks to ours
Best location in Essaouira, staff is super and the building is great!!
Excellent hospitality, great location, delicious food and relaxing pool
Super Service, herrliches Hotel
Location, food and bed!
I think that is missing something to hang towels.
Wonderful location and beautiful rooftop terrace with pool.
Wifi was bit hit and miss but this seems standard in Morocco.
A very relaxing stay at a very high quality establishment, the staff were very very helpful, friendly and efficient, the place is a delight to stay at
Beautifull room, great roof pool terrace,
Ambience a "stuffy",
Charming staff, beautiful decor, style and calm.
The swimming pool was meant to be heated, but felt cold.
Everything, beautiful hotel, wonderful location AND parking!
5 star luxury at its best. This hotel is made by its wonderful staff and great location in the medina. The pool and rooftop terrace are a lovely bonus.
Great location. Right by one of the gates to the medina. They have a cinema, pool table, game tables and a rooftop with a pool. Concierge / reception staff is pretty friendly.
On our last night, we found a dead roach by the closet. On our last morning before checkout, as I was taking tissues out of their tissue box in the bathroom, a live roach crawled out! Disgusting. Apparently, they had just sprayed for roaches a few days ago so that's why the roaches were coming out. Even though they credited us for our bar tab and a free airport transfer, I still would rather there not have been any roaches in the first place! The bar staff could use some better training. They forgot to give us napkins, so I had to ask for that, and the girl forgot our order, so I had to ask another waiter to fill it.
A haven, beautifully appointed rooms and public spaces. Food was very good and good value. Staff were mostly very friendly and attentive.
We were travelling with a toddler. When the hotel director was around he made us feel quite difficult - reacting noticeably and commenting whenever our little boy made a toddler-like noise or jogged around the place a little too energetically for his liking. We were not leaving him to run riot - we were following him around, distracting him and for the most part keeping him quiet and taking him out for a little stroll if he was too boisterous. It is a calm hotel where people go to relax so we understood this and tried to contribute to keeping it calm by containing our little one. Many of the other guests commented to us about how charming our little boy was and seemed to welcome the presence of him and other children amidst the refinement; it was really only the director, and other staff when he was around, who seemed to have a problem. We appreciate what he was trying to do (keep the calm) but feel that his approach did not put us, nor his staff, at their ease. If parents are letting children run riot, or if a hotel wishes to have 'no children under age x for dinner' etc. we are absolutely happy with that; but if you welcome children into your hotel, they have as much right, along with their parents, and other guests who enjoy their childlike delight, to enjoy the facilities.
Overall Design Central Courtyard Rooftop Terrace/Pool Breakfast
Plumbing Noise between floors Finishes somewhat tired in places
We came in after a long drive and were exhausted and irritable. The staff was wonderful then and throughout our stay. Our room was nice and well appointed. I really liked that I could read in one area without disturbing my partner. The breakfast was terrific. Essaouira is one of my favorite (new) places in Morocco.
The first night it was windy which it is often since it is on the coast. We were on the top floor and could hear things (patio furniture/planters) moving around in the wind. Water pressure isn't what it should be and one of the sinks didn't drain properly.
Convenient to airport
Great staff, very helpful and attentive. Excellent rooms and facilities, very good location.
Breakfast waiter service was inconsistent from day to day.
Style and service
Lovely breakfasts in glorious surroundings. Watching "Casablanca" in the cinema room with wine and snacks.
Hot water erratic, bathroom floods, and room rather dark.
