Can't praise the Villa Maroc enough! Such a perfect place, in the perfect location with the loveliest and most helpful staff ever. Still dreaming about the wonderful breakfasts on the roof terrace overlooking the harbour and main square. If you can tear yourself away, make sure to visit their other property, Jardins de Villa Maroc. We had a wonderful day...

A beautiful place to stay. Great position in Essaouira. Lovely rooms. Excellent food. Charming, hospitable staff. Perfect breakfast setting. You must also visit Jardins de Villa Maroc - best Sunday ever: great setting; heated pool; and lunch perfect. Both offer lots of places to hide from the wind!

From start to finish, I enjoyed everything about my stay at Villa Maroc! The location is perfect, very close to the main square, shopping and beach, and easily accessible from where the taxis drop you. The hotel itself is absolutely stunning and gorgeously decorated. The staff was incredibly helpful and friendly, with one receptionist even lending us her personal suncream...

We had 4 days at Villa Marroc and 3 days at their country side residence Jardins de Villa Marroc. Both were amazing experiences and we can only recommend to anyone looking for a quiet, relaxed place to spend a few days. Extremely friendly, service minded and hospitable staff in both hotels - we have seldom experienced anything like it. Beautiful...

The hotel is beautiful with its riad and terrace. Furthermore the location is great. The beach, the port and the medina with many shops, restaurants and cafes are very close. What I want to point out most is that the stuff is extremly friendly and helpful. I'd stay there again anytime.

Villa Maroc is in a great location, minutes from the souk, minutes to a freshly grilled fish lunch by the port or minutes for a stroll along the beach. We stayed in a room for 4 - with one twin room for the kids and one double on a mezzanine. It was ideal and there was lots of space to...

Thank you for your review. We are pleased that you enjoyed your stay with us. I am very sorry that you haven't been informed about the works at the swimming pool at Les jardins de Villa Maroc.

What a place! luxury at its best: charming, laid back and Marrocane. Wonderful breakfast and meals - quality down to the last drop of selfproduced honey on your morning Marrocane pancakes. Fatima serves your breakfast in the sun with charm and heartfelt warmth - together with the rest of the lovely staff. We loved it!

Great location in the Medina of Essaouira right next to the harbour and markets. The property is beautifully decorated and our room was stunning, high ceilings, spacious and a very comfortable bed. The bathroom was great as well, with a powerful shower and a separated wc. What we liked the most was the breakfast on the terrace overlooking the beach,...

Thank you for your review and your recommendation to future travelers. Essaouira is the perfect place to relax. You need a few days to discover the medina and the beautiful beach. But you can easily fill a week if you add a visit of a berber market, a day trip to a secret beach, a cookery class or just a...

“Had a great room on the roof terrace, but I think all rooms are good”

“Room 25 lovely with a view of the sea and the seagulls!”

“The top room at Jardins de Villa Marroc was a beautiful room, the only one on the first floor, featuring a view of the argan fields to all sides. In Villa Marroc we enjoyed a nice room below the roof top terrace - the 'sea view' was perhaps a bit of a stretch seeing as you'd have to lean out of the window to see it, but the room - and we expect all the rooms - was as beautiful as the rest of the hotel. ”
