Next to the ocean, the Mimouna is a traditional riad (Moroccan house) offering peaceful accommodations and a large terrace with panoramic sea views in Essaouira.
Score from 176 reviews Very good
- Very friendly service people - Very nice separeted dining rooms in the Riad - Beautiful fire places everywhere, they even bring olive wood into your room and fire up your private fire place by request (which we found so romantic and very seldom nowadays) - They put hot water bottle into your bed when it is cold outside to pre-warm your bed (so nice) - Don't miss the dinner they offer, it's like a very private dinner just for you right at one of their fire places and (yes) you have to make sure that you are (very) hungry :-)
- Only very tiny things to mention here: - The WiFi is a bit weak in some rooms or some area but strong and fast in main area - The living room would need some cozy blankets to nestle in the living room with the private fire place, just to make it even more cozy - Everything else was just great in Villa Maroc!
In 50 years of world travel, this hotel is one of the best we've seen. Great location, very attentive staff, immaculate and beautifully decorated rooms, and a selection of rooftop, sea-view terraces and lovely little private spaces. Moroccan magic!
This is not a hotel for those who cannot climb stairs.
Very warm welcome with hot meal waiting on late arrival. Spacious top floor suite with sea views. We even had a hot water bottle placed in the bed every night! Very friendly staff. Location is perfect for the harbour & visiting the souk
Nothing to complain about
Location, beautiful place
New Years eve dinner was a nice party but overpriced
If you want to have a real treat, choose Villa Maroc. It is just a beautiful place to be and relax.
This place has charm, character and comfort. The staff are so friendly and attentive, nothing is too much. Food is superb. I wouldn't hesitate to stay there again and again……….
The location was great The staff were lovely very friendly.
Location, hospitality, spacious rooms, breakfast on the roof terrace, tasteful decorations, quiet environment.expect lots of stairs,
Expect lots of stairs in Riads!!
My sister and I dated at Villa Marocco for 3 days and were wonderfully surprised by its cleanliness, beautiful rooms, very helpful staff and excellent food. It's convenient location close to the beach and shopping streets is an additional bonus. I will definitely recommend it to friends and family.
Great location in the Medina, roof top terrace had a stunning sea view and the place was well decorated with Moroccan antiques and artifacts. Very charming combined riads with a very good staff. The food and service were also very good. We were also upgraded to a family suite with 2 bedrooms. Overall, I was very happy with my choice.
The only real negative was that the rooms could have been a bit cleaner, and being so near the sea, the rooms smelled musty.
We loved the restrained decor still so much in keeping with what is Morocco. We loved how close it was to everything and we really thought the staff great. They championed us in a traffic issue with an unsavory policeman and he went away without the bribe he was looking for. Food in the restaurant is great. Terrace for brekkie worth getting up early for to get the best table
Plumbing needs attention. Choice of scorch or freeze not so great.
The staff was very attentive and the Villa was gorgeous. We especially liked the breakfast on the upper terrace.
They need a pool on site.
great location, very kind people
a little bit expensive
Breakfast was good. The staff were very pleasant.
Our room was small and quite dirty. European prices but a European standard of cleanliness and comfort was not offered.
Location, Decor and Staff
Noise. Stairs, WiFi
Wonderful location-great view from roof terrace. Staff are exceptionall,nice, polite & helpful - nothing is too much trouble. Food is very good indeed - have dinner
Nothing. excellent riad. V.well run
Graciously appointed artfully decorated rooms, close to everything
Frustrating stuff assuring us that the Wi-Fi worked when in fact it worked BARELY, and even then only in the a.m. So noisy that it was not possible to sleep even with earplugs and medication Beware: room number 30 and remember 29 are separate rooms but they're open to each other so there's no privacy in the middle of both of those rooms. We were in room number 30 and we looked down on all of the activities of the poor people that were staying in room number 29 and vice versa!
Brilliant! The breakfast was delicious and the room was beautiful. Well worth the money, loved it!!!
The staff were fabulous and very helpful and courteous. The Riad itself was very comfortable and a little osasis in the middle of a bustling medina.
Excellent comfort Facilities Location Staff
Location in Essaouira medina; quirky rooms; excellent common areas; views from the terrace; its place in the history of Essaouria. When we asked for a different room (due to a difficulty with lots of stairs - common in Morocco), they were very accommodating and we were very happy.
Lovely riad.Public rooms beautifully decorated and all the spaces well utilized for guest use. Bedrooms are comfortable and spacious. The location is ideal for exploring the medina and seafront.Its also located near to some good restaurants.
There needed to be an alternative to breakfast on the roof terrace.
Food, dining areas, location, furnishings & decorations, staff.
The decor, ambience, location near the sea with excellent views. Roof terraces, breakfasts, dinners. Staff were Very considerate and thoughtful. Hot water bottles put into our bed nightly. Lovely few days.
Nothing to dislike.
