Score from 599 reviews Very good
Great ocean and town views. Breakfast on the terrace. Friendly staff. In the Medina, yet still quiet. Call ahead so staff can met you at the Medina Entrance to get to the hotel.
Unsafe electrical heater in the room.
Friendly and professional stuff. Very good breakfasts (at the rooftops), excellent location & clean and very big room. Don't miss the hammam!
White clothes a bit aged.
Bathroom , big bed
Room too big for the small electric heater: it never really got warm. Next time I'll ask for a smaller room.
Amazing views, centrally located.
Everything was good.
We had the room on the rooftop with an excellent seaview. On the same level was the breakfast bar and evening bar - very convenient - and in no way were we disturbed by 'traffic'. Staff were absolutely charming and very dedicated - nothing was too much to ask. The bathtub was enormous, a real treat after a day of walking.
The wifi worked everywhere in the hotel but in our room. We had two small children, but could only accommodate one small bed, but main bed was big enough for 3! Water was sometimes cold, and in winter, a hot bath is essential, as it gets quite chilly at night. No central heating, but a small heater available.
GREAT WELCOME: Warmly welcomed and the majority of staff had a good level of English otherwise most also spoke French. INFORMATION: Thanks to Mme Rachida for providing lots of email contact prior to arrival and recommendations during our stay. Also had a free 3 hour tour guide who was excellent providing some great historical information and took us to some great sights. TRANSPORT: Thanks to Hossna for organising onward travel to the Atlas Mountains. LOCATION: Well located only a few minutes from the taxi rank / square and a couple of minutes from the Dar Skala with the impressive ramparts and lots of shops and restaurants. ROOMS: A good spacious room with nice bathroom and a small view of the sea from the corner of the window. Good sized TV. HOTEL FACILITIES: Super rooftop views where we had breakfast everyday, definitely one of the most impressive things of this hotel. Also a lovely entrance with the large courtyard looking up to the four floors. Only one small lift but also a staircase. SPA: Excellent Hamman and good Spa facilities run by Fatima-Ezzahra and her colleague Arbia. There was also a jacuzzi but we did not use this. FOOD: We only ate here on the first night where they put on a Christmas Eve dinner - a very large quantity of food and first introduction to Moroccan Cuisine. Great with entertainment of traditional Gnaoua music which is one of the major attractions of Essaouira with an annual festival. Good breakfast every morning with omelettes and pancakes, yoghurts and fruit. Essaouira is a magical place and very chilled out with lots of wonderful places to explore in the Medina and a vast beach to walk along. Overall a good hotel all the staff made us very welcome and we appreciated all their help and making our Christmas so special. Thank you and best wishes for 2015!
INFORMATION: Would be good to have had some additional information pamphlet / folder in our room of local attractions / recommendations. BEDROOM: A little outdated and think could do with a new lick of paint, new rugs, new curtains and a duvet that fitted the bed properly. Also smelt a bit damp but room was clean. TV did not really work very well and if it had a DVD built-in would have been a good addition. The heating issue could be better if they installed air conditioning.
Great location near to the main Madina square. We had a love room with an exceptionally large bath. The Riad had a lovely roof terrace which overlooks the harbour and sea.
Only an electric heater in the room during the cold nights.
The civility of the staff, bordering on delightful at times. if you smile they smile but if you dont they dont, so smile. The ladies who run the hotel are sweet and pleasant, and the guys, there were 2 main protagonists at the time, couldnt do enough, but this was at the end of the season, so there was not much for them to do. It would be teeming in season.
The time of year I went to stay in Essouaria was December 7th not a good time for hotel service it is all over by then. So I was led to believe, naively, that the restaurant would be open. It was opened for me alone, and I was offered food, but it was inedible. But they wanted me to have food. They are very kind people.
The staff are so friendly and helpful. The whole place is spotlessly clean. The food and service are to be highly recommended.
Seagulls watching me have breakfast 2 feet away
Really cheerful and happy staff. A beautiful building in a great location within very close proximity to the sound of the ocean. Good Moroccan breakfast - more than you can eat - unlike some riad's, especially in Marrakech, which serve just a flat bread, a yoghourt and a berber pancake. Have travelled Morocco a lot over many years and would definitely visit again if in Essaouria.
Nothing. All great. The only thing some visitors might comment on is that the Wi-fi is a tiny bit slow at times but hey - get a life - you're on holiday!
There was nothing not to like during our stay. The hotel, the location, staff, and the food were all excellent. We particularly enjoyed the breakfast buffet every morning, all the food was freshly prepared and delicious.
Love the setting, amazing hotel. Great location for the square and harbour. Staff great. Food good, great room.
We paid over €100 per night for a suite and found the room to be of a good size and the bed comfortable.
The shower didn't work properly. Only 1 coat hanger between 2 of us. Asked for more, no you can't have any. Asked for iron, no not today. Breakfast not good. Watched guests clear tables so they could sit down. Food not replenished, no greeting,not offered omelettes.guests only found out if the saw other people eating them. 4 staff stood around. No excuse for dirty tables, empty water jugs, empty coffee pots, no hot water for tea. Breakfast of a very poor quality. Would not return, would not recommended.No safe in room.
We had first a regular room,which was dark and smelly. After 2 nights we could change to the rooftop room with a wonderful sea view. Fatima,the lady at the reception was very helpful and arranged everything we wanted. Sunset is amazing from the roof terrace.
Breakfast could have been better.There was only sweet food and the service not on the top.
Fantastic location. Truly beautiful, and the rooftop patio is spectacular. The beds are good and the rooms are fine, but nothing exceptional. They make up for comfort with character!
"Luxury hotel" is a generous description at best. It is very comfortable, but it is not luxury. Also, getting there was not super difficult but you have to walk through the medina asking for directions, which may not be the best strategy if you are dragging a suitcase.
Receptionist was delightful, likewise her colleague that came to meet us and helped with our expanse of luggage. Great location bordering the medina on the waters edge. close to parking. View from the roof terrace was amazing.
We wished we'd able to stay longer
Large size room and bed Beautiful roof terrace for breakfast with a view over the ocean
Very helpful staff. Very clean and a great room - we were upgraded in order to accommodate our twin room request without extra charge. Perfect location right in the middle of it all. Short walk to and from the bus station. Highly recommended.
Staff; view; room; terrace; position.
Loved it all.
Lovely Riad, we had a beautiful Maisonette suite. The terrace, where breakfast is served, faces the sea and is a wonderful place to relaxe. The staff ist very kind, professional and helpful.
From the pick up by the taxi driver who had waited patiently for over an hour as we were finally permitted entry to Morocco, to the warmest welcoming smile that awaited us at reception in The Palais de Remparts in Essaouira our stay here was wonderful.All the staff were extremely helpful, charming, polite. The hotel is a converted Rhiad with a traditional central courtyard. The rooms all have a balcony that overlooks this, three floors from which the palm trees and a fountain sit among traditional tiled and marble floors. House Buntings roost among the fronds of the palm trees over night. Our room was on the top floor with fantastic sea views, not overlooked so we slept with curtains and window open , the sound of the waves crashing on the rocks below a whispered lullaby.Seperate bathroom, with roof top views across the medina, comfortable king size bed there are two rooms on the top floor both are highly recommended , both having access right outside your door to the roof terrace on which breakfast is served, a huge selection of fruit, breads, pastries, pancakes, cakes, yoghurt etc, etc. eaten whilst taking in the views, sounds and scent of Essaoiura. The hotel is right in the medina, next to the old Portuguese wall, the souks are a five minute walk, restaurants, some selling alcohol are on your doorstep, the port and the windswept beach are a ten minute walk, nothing is too far to walk, as the medina has everything you could want. I recommend this hotel to all, would stay there again if I visited Essaoiura once more
the hotel, the building, roof terraces, views, breakfast on the roof, receptionist, sound of the waves through our open window, the town, the harbour
the restaurant/bar on the roof is a great idea but also in its way removed some freedom from those who may have wished to relax up there without these extras. We were unable to locate the hotel address on google maps or sat nav so had to request the services of a chap at the parking to show us the way.
Staff helpful and location adj Remparts great. Breakfast for everyone.
Unfortunately we had a noisy room level 3 above delivery door and chair shuffle noise from rooftop. Shower pressure low, pillow small and lumpy.
Location and the building and courtyard were super. Bath was brilliant, big and lots of hot water. The little birds that came in over night were lovely and should be used as selling point.
Decor in deluxe room -dated and less attractive than other rooms. Simple cream colour would be better. Electrics on light above dressing table sparked and general buzzing from fuse box could be distracting.Toilet flush runs slightly continuously.
Comfortable rooms, spacious bathroom and brilliant breakfast spread. A full manicure and pedicure for £20 was also good value.
You're told that you can't check in until 4pm but our room still wasn't ready at 4.30pm- not great after a 3 hour trip from Marrakech with a migraine!
