Had no bad experience.
We got a great deal on booking.com and were thrilled with the overall quality, comfort and attention to detail. From the moment we walked into the foyer we were greeted by smiling staff with cooling scented towels and mint tea while we signed in. The pool is lovely with numerous high quality sunbeds and towels provided. Also we found out the hotel runs a free transport service to and from Marrakesh.

Everything. It was one of the best hotel's I have stayed in in years.

Sweet but poirly trained restaurant staff; substandard food (even the 'signature' dishes). Weird breakfast buffet and no room service brekkie. Seafood restaurant a tacky faux Miami lounge bar with no blinds/curtains. Pool are could be more inviting at night for dinner with some candles etc.
Locatin is great. Pool area divine- a peaceful oasis. Lovely huge comfrtable beds with high cotton count. Nice personal touches - a selection of books left on my bed, chocs at night. Kamira (?) on reception is excellent.

Only criticism was the tree outside our balcony impaired our sea-view.
Superb beach-area with great service. Lovely staff, excellent sea-front restaurant and lots of uber comfortable loungers always available.

Food and drinks were ridiculously over priced (20GBP for some boiling water on room service, same price we paid for two mojitos). Staff were also woefully unknowledgeable about Essaouira and local area
The room was clean and spacious, with a beautiful, large balcony. Pool was fantastic and the location was second-to-none

You can see that it is not new anymore but all works very well. It's just a small thing, it does not take away the pleasure of staying here.
Location Staff is friendly and very helpful Easy to find by car and taxi Located on beach with its own restaurant on beach with seaview and it's own provate beach Hotel needs to be renivated but it is really good value for money. Has a nice pool, enough sunbeds to get sun Very good breakfast facilities at the pool in the morning The bed is fantastic, superp sleeping guaranteed Very important to know is that Essaouira is located on the ocean so the humidity is 90% or more. In hotels you have conditioners to dry your room so your bed will not be as wet as in a Riad in the city center. Fully enjoyed this hotel, definately come back!

Well set Decent food Lovely staff

The wifi connection was awful. Staff could also be friendlier and more knowledgeable about the area.
The hotel was in a great location and the beds were really comfortable.

Service a bit slow but to be fair friendly. Dental kit could have been from Stalinist Russia! :)
Location, location, location! Great bed and holiday feel of the rooms... Designed for beach goers with a lovely private beach area..

Variable service poolside. Smoothies ordered were warm and coffee also warm, not hot, service very slow. But on another occasion service quick and drinks hot.
The pool area was lovely - plenty of comfortable loungers and sun or shade to choose from. Rooms comfortable but best to have a room on left side of pool with a pool view to get sun in the afternoon.

Didn't try the breakfast, was a bit expensive for us
Very soft beds, lovely staff and nice Hammam
April 5, 2015
That breakfast was not included and an expensive extra (we found lots of inexpensive options however nearby).
Great location right across from the beach and a few minutes walk to the medina and port. The kids loved the pool (still a little cold for me) and we all appreciated the beds! Wifi worked excellent in the rooms.

Can't fault it - excellent facilities, brilliant location, amazing value for money. The staff were lovely and friendly, particularly the girl in the main bar that served us each night!

The booking listed 2 prices - $311 for 3 nights or $415 for 3 nights with Breakfast. We chose the breakfast deal even though we thought it was pricey. At check out we were charged $90 for our breakfasts. The reservation confirmation showed no breakfast. So was I cheated by the hotel or by Booking.com? The staff were not helpful in anyway and I still am writing to the management asking for a refund of $104. We were disappointed there was not coffee or tea available in the rooms or in the lobby. You had to order and pay for any coffee or tea. We were sad that the heated indoor pool is only open from 7-9pm (dinner hour).
The location was fabulous for us. We wanted to be on the beach and we were. It is just 10 minute walk to the Medina or Port. We chose the Ocean view room and loved the view and sounds of the breakers. The bed was comfortable.

A man called 'Ayoub' who worked at the front desk requested that we rate the hotel a 10. He even asked us to give a few 9s to make the review 'realistic'. This undermines the reviews system and hurts all future travellers using the site. Also, the hotel's driver who took us to the airport pretended not to have the correct change in order to pressure us into paying more than we agreed with him. We pointed out that we could see the correct change in his wallet and he begrudgingly gave it to us. Naughty naughty both hotel staff members.
The location and value for money were both great. The room was nice and big, looked clean and pleasant. There was a free hammam which was nice.

We had Room 160. I think the plumbing needs upgrading in that bedroom. Sink plug did not work so had to keep hot water running in basin. Bath water controls on wall mean that to add more hot water it is necessary to stand up and turn on water once again. Controls are needed beside the bath not high up on the wall. The Shower has been leaking and so the wall is badly discoloured and the floor flooded. It would have been useful to have Bath and Shower water control instructions. Bathroom door would not shut without slamming.
Excellent and very friendly staff on Reception and in the Restaurants.. Good food and wine on offer.

The wifi is not constant sometimes just disappeared,and would be great enjoy it on the beach as well not just in the hotel. Also I fund out that the prices in the restaurant quite high in my opinion.
Firstly I would like to mention the friendly staff everywhere in the hotel,also the high level of service.We arrived as a young couple for honeymoon,they prepared our room beautifully decorated with roses,and swansies made by towel.The breakfast was excellent,in the restaurant was different menu for every evening. The location also one of the best point of the hotel.The beach is just one minute walk from the hotel,and down there is a special area provided by the hotel who want to enjoy the ocean and the sun!
March 16, 2015
The staff were wonderful and very helpful. The hotel offers everything , we didn't want to leave since we were so comfortable there. I highly recommend it. the hotel beat my expectations

Private area on the beach that is perfect for watching the ocean. Close to Medina, and even closer to the beach.
February 26, 2015
I had requested a quiet room, but was given a room right above the bar, with associated music between 4 and 11.30 PM. The hotel wasn't full at all, so I guess no attention had been paid to this request. A real shame as I did come to relax and catch up on sleep (I only figured out what caused the sounds after my second night). The hamam is only accesible through the spa which closes at 7PM. For a spa hotel I find this very limited. The hamam could also do with a good deep cleanse...
This was my second stay, and I still think the design of the hotel is very beautiful and enjoyable. Stunning seaviews and friendly, professional services with attention to detail.

... This place was just what the doctor ordered. Great staff, location, food and accommodation. I throughly enjoyed my stay and would really rate this place.
