Le Jardin Doeurs: We stayed here and loved it. A family run place away from the touristy areas of Essaouira but close enough to go and do some surfing if you want to. The place is lovey; a haven of superbly well kempt gardens harbouring wildlife (non-intrusive) and calmness in equal measure. This is a family friendly place - there...

In little more than four hours after having been on the tarmc of Luton airport you enter the oasis of calm that is Jardin Des Douars. But be warned - if you have come here to experience the delights of Essaouria you may find yourself experiencing very little as this hotel's tranquil ambiance may keep you well and truly rooted...

We spent 10 days here and had a fabulous time - we really didn't want to leave! The staff are wonderfully friendly, the rooms are large with their own patio space and the food and service are excellent. We also loved afternoon tea, the local wildlife and watching the sunset from the terrace. Can't wait to go back!

A really memorable, relaxing and enjoyable stay. Any hotel that sends round a complementary glass of mint tea and a slice of cake in the afternoon gets my vote immediately, but there are so many plus points including the gardens (complete with visiting toads and tortoises), the views at any time of the day and the 'piscine calme' which is...

Not far from the airport, not so close from the city centre. This hotel was a very pleasant surprise for us. Very original rooms, my colleague got an upgrade to the Royal presidential suite, which was one of the most beautiful room I ever saw. The staff was very friendly especially the Moroccan receptionist, very professional and nice. I would...

This property occupies an amazing micro-climate - if it's mist in nearby Essouira , then here in this flowery paradise the sun shines & on a windy day it's peaceful. The ambiance is one of total privacy & peace with a pool for adults only where you can hear a pin drop, such is the respect for quiet. The pool...
