The property is a little worn but still lovely and the views can't be beat.
I must admit, my heart sank when the taxi pulled up to the medina to drop us off. I had thought I was booking one of those nice hotels on the main boulevard facing the ocean. Having recently been in Marrakech, I had had enough of medinas. But this hotel turned out to be in the perfect location! It was only a short walk into the medina and when we got to our room on the roof and the rooftop terrace open to all, the view was amazing! It looks to be the highest point in town. The ocean and the fort and canons are directly below you. It was an amazing place to sit and have a beer or tea. The staff was very nice and helpful and the room was spacious and nice. I would certainly return to beautiful Essaouira and the Palais des Remparts for a longer stay!

hosted a tour group down in the restaurant on a Wednesday evening...extremely loud music until 1130pm! Smelt a tad musty- but just opened the windows and let some of the breeze in.
Friendly staff. Strong wifi. Very big shower with hot water! Comfortable beds

The linens could have been cleaner
Best location and it even had an elevator.

The rooftop dining area was very damp in the mornings when there was a sea mist and the sun hadn't dried chairs. When the hotel has only a few guests they don't put out the buffet and the plate of breakfast was not as good as the buffet choice . Bit of a steep sided bath which was hard to climb into!
Excellent location very central. Wonderful rooftop dining area with superb views. 3rd floor room with sea view was perfect and we loved lying in bed listening to the waves. The room was very quiet Friendly helpful staff Breakfast buffet

Based on Morocco prices, we thought the price per night was a bit high. We also weren't warned that there would be no electricity or water from 8am-12pm on the Sunday we stayed there. On the last day we were there the water didn't work before we left. The credit card machine also didn't work so we had to pay in cash. Overall, we were happy and enjoyed our stay. Just be prepared for the unexpected as you should be for all your time in Morocco.
The location is perfect and the staff is lovely. At the entrance to the medina have one of the men waiting there take you and your luggage to the hotel. You'll never find it otherwise. Don't pay more than 30 dirham. As with everything in Morocco, negotiate beforehand. Our room was on the top floor and we had a gorgeous view of the ocean.

Everything was great - the location, view from the terasse where the breakfast was served, the rooms, etc
March 21, 2015
Certainly had the 'wow' factor......beautifully decorated and equipped in quality traditional Moroccan style. The roof terrace where the sumptuous breakfast is served has amazing views of the ocean.

Too chilli breakfast place due to windy weather.
March 14, 2015
Seating in bedroom not suitable. Coffee supply at buffet could be updated - not good system. And it needs staff attention during service times.
Superb top floor room with sea and rooftop views with buffet breakfast outside our door Contact with staff at all times excellent, friendly and efficient. We had our own personal seagull in charge of security.

The feel of humidity inside the room and heating could have been better.
The location and spotless room

Most caring and friendly staff. Whatever we wondered or asked for they tried to satisfy us.

Had to ask staff to clean Windows as got salted up which spoiled the view. Had to ask to have 2 lights fixed but all done immediately and willingly.

Breakfast on the terrace was a highlight of our stay at this attractive and comfortable hotel.

I'm loathed to say anything bad because we had such a great stay but if I had to be picky breakfast isn't great. It is a self-service buffet which is great because you can have as much as you want, there is lots of choice and it is available 7.30am till 11am. However, everything was a bit stale and tasteless. Nothing tasted fresh and obviously the buffet set up meant nothing was war.
The staff were lovely, very helpful and made an effort to chat to us: asking about our day etc. It was pretty easy to find considering how difficult Moroccan Medina's can be to navigate sometimes and very close to the harbour and the main square. After staying in a Riad in Marrakech it was nice to have a bit more space and anonymity.

The staff were amazing. Kind (even when I questioned the bill-my falt I might add) and attentive. Breakfast on the terrace was great and we had lunch one day and it was really good. We would have eaten there more often but sadly they did not serve wine. Will definitely return.

The location was fantastic and staff really helpful:) recommend:)!

The setting just inside the medina is great and the best panoramic view from the terrace where a brilliant buffet breakfast is served. Our room was huge and the biggest bath ever! But it's the gentle attentiveness of all the staff that really made our stay such a pleasure.

There was a little bit of a strange smell in the bedroom but nothing that was a problem and it wouldn't put us off going there again. I booked in for a French manicure which was nice but not like a French manicure in England as the options of colours were quite bright. I paid for this at the end of the stay as it is added to your bill and was charged almost double as apparently I also had a hand massage (I just asked for a manicure)! They did take some money off but still paid more than the advertised price ... But the girl who did it was lovely!
The location is amazing and so is the view from the rooftop, as it looks over the ramparts and out sea. The bedrooms are nice and I would definitely say take advantage of the massive bath. The hotel staff are really helpful and they offer a free guided tour (2 days a week) around the medina. The guide did take us into two shops (argan oil and silver) but we didn't feel pressured and we just politely had a quick look round. We used the hammam which was a nice experience and we left the hotel feeling very relaxed.

no bad experience
fabulous room size and bathroom - loved heating as it was freezing in early feb
February 19, 2015
If I have to be picky, service was a bit slow on account of being understaffed, but given that I stayed in Feb, that's understandable
Great stay: staff, rooms, location, rooftop view, breakfast/food - excellent value for money

Beautiful room and hotel, great location and the hotel's guide Shae-Shae gave such depth to our understandable of Essaouira. His knowledge of the city's history was thorough and he was a joy to be around.
