FAQs about hotels in Essaouira







Morocco With a European Twist

Essaouira has developed from a hippie hangout to become a top Morocco beach resort with good surfing conditions. Its 18th-century medina is almost European in feel and narrow streets lead under low arches past fragrant spice stalls and local artisans selling everything from wood carvings to faience pottery.

Dotted around the souk are many traditional-style riads on Booking.com, hidden behind tiled façades and blue doors. Other Essaouira accommodation options include luxury hotels with swimming pools, cheap apartments, and B&Bs near Essaouira Airport.

Also bright blue are the rowing boats bobbing gently in small harbours sheltered by the Scala of the Port, a wide walkway with ramparts through which several historic cannons poke out. At the end is the Citadel, a small fortress overlooking Mogador Island - the largest of the Iles Purpuraires, so-called for the purple shells found in their rocks that were once used to produce dyes for Roman senator togas.

Another fortress – Bordj El Berod – lies in pieces on the long, sandy beach south of the marina. In the opposite direction the coastline is more rocky and lined by the Scala of the Kasbah, the crenellated walls protecting the medina. Horseriding and camel safaris are available on the beach and you can also visit a Berber village inland.

    What a wonderful city!

    What a wonderful city! Beaming with actual local craft and art, lots of cute street cats and beautiful colourful houses with intricately decorated doors, windows and fountains. We fell in love with this small city and would love to go back. Pro Tip if you like cats: buy some vet cat food and walk around the city with it because those creatures will break your heart with their cuteness. I would recommend spending at least two days there. Get lost in the small streets to the sides from the main shopping areas. Visit the fish market, eat fresh oysters or other sea products. The beach was nice and serves as a great refreshment after long walks in Medina. Shopping was great and cheap but I would still recommend learning the actual prices first. For example, we got small tiles for 10dhs but in other places we’re getting prices like 50 or 30. Don’t be afraid to walk away and negotiate a bit. Especially if it is not the master themselves selling but a reseller. You can usually find actual masters on the smaller side streets (especially for wood and fabrics). I also noticed that women have fair prices more often. Food. Amazing street food and fruits! Don’t go to overpriced restaurants on tourist streets, unless they have a “menu” offer which can be worth the price. Otherwise, if you just take a detour from the main hustle, there will be tangine not for 80dhs but for 30. The food is also way cheaper outside of Medina.

    Impressive fort!

    Impressive fort! The Atlantic brings a fresh brise and a lot of problems for the buildings because humidity. It’s impressive to watch the ocean breaks at the city wall and sunset over the blue fisher boats. The Souk is small but fine and not so over crowded like Marrakech but not easy to get good prices because you don’t have many options like in other souks.But it’s a unique place impressive too!

    Good place with a chilled-out vibe.

    Good place with a chilled-out vibe. Great for those who are into surfing or wind sports. Also a cool place for those who like to try local food, shop at markets, or just meander through the narrow streets of a historic and vibrant town. Accommodation is affordable, food is tasty, and the people are friendly. Also lots of activities such as surfing and camel/horse riding. Easy to reach other towns and cities from the bus station.

    There were lots of things I liked about Essaouira.

    There were lots of things I liked about Essaouira. It is a coastal seaport with fresh fish brought in daily, so eating fish/seafood was a real delight. The town itself has many sections of medina/suq where all sorts of shopping opportunities, or just gazing around can be had. I did a cookery course which I enjoyed and found very informative, we learned to make a meat tagine, also a lentil dish, and had a visit to the spice market. I went with another hotel guest to a hammam which was a first for me. I enjoyed it all, thought it was perhaps a bit commercial, and disappointed a day or two later to discover I had acquired headlice. I have heard of this happening to others, so whilst dismayed to be in that state, I recognise that it is fairly common. No I would not go to a hammam again. The hassle of getting lice free outweighed for me the enjoyment. I do ,however, recommend the cookery course.

    The staff throughout the hotel were friendly, helpful and professional without being over-bearing. We enjoyed the quality and variety available at breakfast. We were upgraded to a sea view room which was beautiful and very spacious for 2 adults and 2 children. The location was excellent, right by the beach and a gentle, short walk into the medina. There are lots of areas in the hotel to relax in, both in the sunshine and in the shade. We felt that we had enough space away from other guests. The hotel was clean and comfortable.
