Had some difficulties finding a good triple room in Essaouira. But Ocean Vagabond had a suite Jaipur in two floors with a small balcony toward the sea. Nice view! Had a double room upstairs (bed was quite noisy) and had a small bed downstairs. Nice bathroom. Rose pedals everywhere. Beautiful. Very good breakfast, freshly baked bread (two kind), cake, yoghurt,...

We enjoyed two nights here in November. We were the only guests but were well looked after. The guesthouse is slightly set back from the beach and ideally placed for all things: the medina, the beach, the new town and even the RC church! There is a pretty little garden and a small bathing pool - and your breakfast is...

We were happy to find this place in essaouira as it offered us a great place to relax were you can also find a very extended menu with international cuisine, ranging from burgers to pizzas but also more exquisite dishes as oisters or fresh Tuna. Wines are great, it is a very busy place where service is sometimes a bit...

Staying in a riad in the Essaouira medina we fancied a change from the bustle of the old town and took our swimming gear to the Ocean Vagabond where, for 120 dirhams (60 for children) we had the pool to ourselves in a beautiful garden with plenty of shade. The pool is quite small and 150cm deep at most, with...

A lovely friendly hotel. Staff are so friendly and helpful beyond expectation - even accompanying us to hospital when my son had a medical emergency in the early hours.

The staff was incredibly friendly and the rooms were clean and bright with an ocean view. The decor felt like the beach in California to a large extent, but it was fine to have something different for a night. Great location and reasonable price.

We found Ocean Vagabond at the end of the paved beach path. We decided to escape the sun and the advances of the camel and horse operators who were friendly but unrelenting. We were warmly welcomed and told we could sit anywhere we pleased. A short while later our drinks were delivered and we were left to enjoy the scenery...

This hotel is ideally placed at the Medina end of the beach, 2 minutes from the prom and 5 minutes from the Medina.

Brilliant location - 2 minutes from the beach, but only 5 minutes to the port and the medina. The rooms,public spaces and pool are perhaps a little past their prime but pleasant enough and clean.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
UNIK PALAIS enjoys the best of both worlds: a perfect location in the enchanting Atlantic resort of Essaouira, just a stone's throw from the fine sandy beach of the bay, yet it is only a few minute's walk to the colourful souks and shops of the old walled Medina. The hotel offers14 well-equipped rooms and suites, each is unique and stylishly designed, but all are spacious and bright, united by attention to detail and comfort. All rooms come with an en suite bathroom (bath or shower), mini bar, safe, heating, satellite TV, phone and Wi-Fi. Most rooms have a private terrace or balcony with views, overlooking the ocean, the gardens or the Medina. There are also several inter-connecting rooms, which are ideal for families. Outside, a good-size heated swimming pool is set in a pretty garden, provides an ideal spot for guests to while away the hours, sunbathing, reading or just relaxing. Tucked away at the back of the garden, is the hotel's intimate Oriental Spa, offering guests a good choice of beauty treatments, massage and hammam. In addition, guests can participate in the many activities available on the beach, just across the road from the hotel, such as swimming, water sports or even camel riding...... Our charming "L'O' Restaurant, looks out over the gardens and offers an enticing selection of Moroccan and Mediterranean cuisine. Unik palais offers plenty of communal spaces and quiet corners for both adults and children to chill out in: a cosy lounge overlooks the gardens and has comfy sofas, floor cushions and an open-fire. Our library and reading room on the mezzanine floor, with its comfortable leather chairs, good selection of books, 42" satellite TV and DVD player, is a great favorite with our guests, as is our cozy African Colonial-style bar. ... more   less
