    The rooms were all individual and beautifully furnished. The staff couldn't do enough for us, nothing was any trouble, like lighting a fire in the bedroom to making us a cake for our anniversary. The food was lovely, using local ingredients and was very good value for money. We will definately return.

    Superb

    The reception staff were very welcoming and helpful. Likewise, another staff person we encountered went out of his way to show us around the hotel and seemed to know who we were. We had an excellent dinner. The terrace and indoor common spaces were very nice and added to the comfortable feeling of the hotel. Great location in easy walking distance of ramparts, old town shopping and beach.

    Leftover breakfasts served on the patio were not cleared away quickly and the seagulls came, knocked over and broke dishes on other tables both days we were there.

    Fabulous

    The hotel is beautifully located in the old town of Essaouira. The interior design is splendid, virtually exuding comfort (many inviting corners to sit down, very agreeable traditional but sober decoration). Roof terrace with wide views over the fortifications and the beach, breakfast served there. Staff was friendly while not able to give us another room (see below) as the hotel was fully booked.

    Having chosen Villa Maroc as a 'highlight' for the last two nights of our holidays, I regretted not having specifically requested a room in the upper parts of the building. As it turned out, room no. 28 was at the lowest level of a rather narrow courtyard so that it received very little daylight. The room as such appeared somewhat over-priced.

    Villa Maroc is now my home in Marocco. It had a wonderful atmosphere and I hope to be able to return.

    Very good

    Very nice location. The common spaces are very nice, and the structure is original and well renovated. Lots of open fire places and cosy seperate corners with low eating tables and cussions to relax. Not one of those ufos fallen from the sky, but an original old Riad with special atmosphere. Great ocean view terrace. Very good rich breakfast. Very nice personel.

    Price with Booked.net was one thing, paid amount when leaving was another thing (+30% for small "overlooked things" not factured in the Booked.net price and a totally overpriced, not recommendable spa - again not fault of the very nice staff but referring to the structure - there are much nicer, more luxury, less pricy spas some 200m away). They organized transport from Marrakesch to Essaouira which work very well, but for the way back, 4 days later, the price for the same service had increased as well by 30%. This things are annoying and unneccessary and more price transparency should be guaranteed. The diner was ok, but also totally overpriced, so better eat out.

    Fabulous

    The location of the hotel is perfect.

    It is larger than I realised as such does feel a little impersonal. But we had a wonderful time and would ecrtainly go back one day!

    Superb

    The staff were friendly but unobtrusive, the ultimate place to chill out. It was like staying in someone's home, in that if it was a cold night hot water bottles were provided. Food was superb and served in small intimate salons which were candlelit. Potential travellers need to be aware that in preserving the charm and ambience of the riads all rooms are reached by numerous stairs with no lift.
