A great place, very close to everything, beach, harbour and shops. All the staff were very helpful and welcoming. Amazing breakfast sat on the roof terrace admiring the beautiful view in the sunshine.

Great location in the Medina of Essaouira right next to the harbour and markets. The property is beautifully decorated and our room was stunning, high ceilings, spacious and a very comfortable bed. The bathroom was great as well, with a powerful shower and a separated wc. What we liked the most was the breakfast on the terrace overlooking the beach,...

Thank you for your review and your recommendation to future travelers. Essaouira is the perfect place to relax. You need a few days to discover the medina and the beautiful beach. But you can easily fill a week if you add a visit of a berber market, a day trip to a secret beach, a cookery class or just a...

Family suite is beautiful and gave us enough space and privacy with the kids. Location of the Rhiad couldn't be better for the beach or exploring the town. Terrace is peaceful and with great views. This is our second stay. We will be going again

Villa Maroc was a lovely guest house that had little niches galore to hang in, play chess or have a drink fireside in the bar. The staff were friendly and very attentive. Situated near public parking and the port and steps from the medina. Breakfast on the rooftop terrace was sweet and the food delicious (although beware the stealthy seagulls!)...

Nice rooms. Clean. Comfortable. Sweet and helpful staff. Beautiful hotel. (You don't see it in the lobby) Amazing to sit on the roof in the morning, with the best view. The best breakfast i ever had in Marocco, served by very kind staff.

We spent a few nights here unwinding after being in the mountains and loved it. Very characterful hotel with lots of nooks and crannies to explore. Great rooftop with amazing views and quality big breakfasts. Location in Essouira, by the port and main square, can't be better. Staff were warm and attentive, especially the ever cheery and helpful Fatima! We'll...

Our stay at Villa Maroc was splendid. The service was especially outstanding. We were chilly one evening in our room. What a surprise when a gentleman arrived with hot water bottles - piping hot and very effective!! The breakfasts on the rooftop were delicious and enjoyable with the ocean view. Selections in the gift shop very good.
