We stayed at Baoussala at the end of our month long trip through Spain and Morocco. The bottom line is this is a great place to stay if you do not want to be in the middle of the action in Essaouira. The accommodations were unique and relatively inexpensive. The owner, Dominique was very helpful in making arrangements and in making us feel welcome. She and her cousin Caroline operate the inn and do a great job. They provide wondrerful meals wherever you would like - in your room, in the courtyard, in the inn around the fireplace or on the rooftop terrace. They also were helpful in making recommendations for activities in town. The setting is very nice with trees with lots of birds. Very comfortable and clean bedding with interestingly appointed rooms. You feels as if you are in your own kasbah in the middle of Morocco....
One drawback is that Baoussala is not eay to find as there is poor signage and it is at the end of a several kilometer long rocky piste road. There is nothing around the hotel - it is out in the boonies but that is one of its charms unless you need action. Also their pool needs a little improvement - but we were not interested any way so that was not a concern for us.
Overall it was a great place and way to end our trip!More
