This was a short mother/daughter trip. We loved Villa Maroc for its authentic feel and decor, friendly and warm service and excellent home-made meals. It is a relaxing place that feels more like an old friend's family home than a hotel. A day at the Jardins is not to be missed. We'll be back!

I booked 4 nights at Villa Maroc for my partners birthday, after staying for 1 night with a friend the year perviously as we were travelling through I always wanted to come back. The raid is so peaceful and relaxing- even though the hotel was full it felt so serene. The decor in the raid feels like it has stepped...

We stayed in Villa Maroc for only two days but when we go to Essaouria again I will definitely stay here again. It is 4 houses that have been combined into one so just to get to your room you have to walk thru gorgeous spaces that just add to the charm. Our room was on one of the top...

Villa Marco is a quiet inn close to the sea and near all the action. Sea view rooms are nice with sitting area and comfortable beds. Roof top terrace a nice place to hang out and take in the views and nice breeze. Lots of tourist here but still laid back vibe. Lots of restaurant choices. Cute sop in hotel....

We only stayed for one night but the staff was nice and the location was great. Big rooms but too many windows towards the corridor which made it a bit hard to sleep (due to the noise). Also, the door felt very unsafe as it was a glass door so if someone wants to break in they could do that...

We are sorry if Villa Morocco could not meet your expectations. Riads are more privat houses then hotels. Put you feel save and welcome. Me and my staff are here every day to make your stay as comfortable as possible.

We had 2 nights at Villa Maroc. We had a family room which was perfect for us - very comfortable. Breakfast on the roof terrace was simply glorious. Dinner was in private dining areas. Do ask if you want a more child friendly meal- the hotel were very happy to oblige.

Thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Villa Moroc. Lovely spacious room, comfy bed, beautifully decorated. Dinner was absolutely delicious and breakfast was very good too. We wanted to take the chef home with us!

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...

“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. ”
