This place is perfect! Bruno and staff are perfect hosts in this wonderfully and stylishly equipped villa in Essaouira. The room was lovely with a private balcony / terrace and was stocked with amazing house made products. The villa itself had many rooms for relaxing and dining, a lovely hammam and massage room, and two pools, one for swimming laps...

We really enjoyed the two nights that we spent here. The proprietor Bruno was very friendly and welcoming, and he went out of his way to make sure that we felt at home. The staff does great work-- delicious meals, great massage and the place is kept incredibly clean. We had a fireplace in our room, which we used one...

We stayed for two nights and three days , very nice owner Mr Bruno as well as his assistant Fanny . Amazing location , have to say that the rooms by the pool where humid and too bright in the morning as the curtains did not really cover much . For the rest it was a great experience and will...

This family-owned and run country-side Bed and Breakfast (that also serves lunch and dinner) is about 20 minutes from Essaouira in a developing neighborhood. It is good for social travelers who are wanting a secluded place to relax and who enjoy interacting and engaging with other travelers and the owners. They were knowledgable about places to go in town and...

beautiful big room, very large private terace. Stunning 360° views. The whole team is doing a great job, and the kitchen is very good. Certainly a place to revisit. The last part of the road is a bit difficult by car, but it is worth it.

We were fortunate to spend two nights at Villa Gonatouki at the start of a Morocco travel adventure. When it was time to leave, we wished we were going to stay where we were. Bruno was a great host and made us feel welcome on arrival and through the stay. The place and food were incredible . We hope to...

This charming villa benefits from being designed as a large family home; and that's just what it feels like. There are multiple rooms and external spaces to eat, drink, relax, (including the "bird-room" open to the skies, perfect for smokers). Bruno and his staff could not be more friendly and helpful, both in using the villa and for connections with...

My sister and I just spent 4 nights in the gorgeous Villa Gonatouki and we couldn't recommend a better place when visiting Essaouira. The house is beautiful, very spacious and beautifully decorated, the garden and the 2 pools are so lovely and inviting if relaxation is what you are after. Bruno is the kindest and most hospitable host; nothing is...

Incredible team, personal approach, beautiful accommodation, delicious moroccan food. We felt at home and enjoyed every minute of our stay. Bruno gave us wonderful recommendations and made all the needed reservations for us. So very attentive. We are looking forward to coming back. Bonus: heated pool.

There is a reason that Villa Gonatouki has a 5 star rating from everyone on Trip Advisor. Bruno & his team are exceptional and the Villa itself is fantastic. My girlfriend and I spent 7 lazy days relaxing in the 2 heated swimming pools (or on our private balcony) and eating exceptional (French/Moroccan) meals and drinking lovely Moroccon wine on...
