We had our final destination stay at this hotel. Would rather call it an up market hostel. A little tired and in need of an injection of character. There is a small pool area and minimal sun loungers but we found that there was enough to go round. Situated adjacent to a busy roads but hey you are it a...

My boyfriend and I spent the most amazing week in this lovely place. The staff are very friendly and helpful (especially the waiter at the restaurant and the girls and the reception). I would not take on board the reviews criticizing the fact that the hotel is placed next to the road, frankly you would have to be really picky...

We spent four wonderful nights here. The hotel is in an ideal location next to the beach but just outside the medina walls. we were in Inca room which had two single beds but was big enough, clean and quiet with sea views. no air con but the evenings were cool so we wouldn't have used it anyway. The breakfast...

A truly great find. This small boutique hotel has just 14 rooms and is a friendly oasis of calm in Essaouira. Close to the medina and pretty much on the beach the location was perfect for exploring. For Morocco it had a good sized pool, not really suitable for swimming but definitely bigger that a dipping pool. Loungers and towels...

We were welcomed with tea and cakes and then shown to our lovely ajoining rooms. We were traveling with our 2 daughters aged 11 and 12. It is a small really freindly hotel with lovely communal area, where the fire was lite every night. We did eat at the hotel once as my daughter was tired and wanted to stay...

Stayed here for five nights. Our first room - Jaipur - was totally bizarre, with a lounge area downstairs with a small staircase up to a mezzanine bedroom which felt like you were staying in a caravan. Were on the top floor so had views out to the sea, but the balcony was very small - would recommend they get...

This is a ghastly hotel. It's at a junction of two large roads, so unless you are stone deaf or really enjoy the constant noise (which doesn't abate much at night) from lorries and small motorcycles / mopeds, you're really not going to enjoy yourself at all. There's no air conditioning and opening the windows of course makes the noise...

Nice hotel in a great location with wonderful staff, large clean rooms we had a good sea facing balcony, there's free wifi and complimentary breakfast plus a small garden pool plus hamam but what really makes this place is the warm, friendly, helpful staff. Highly recommend it.

We stayed here for 2 nights at the end of a week long trip in Morocco (5 nights in Marrakech and 2 nights in Essaouira). Really easy to find (all the taxi drivers knew it) and only a few minutes walk to the Medina). The reception staff were welcoming and we had a lovely plate of delicious Moroccon biscuits awaiting...

After a 3hr coach trip, we were so happy to arrive at Ocean Vagabond and see that it lived up to the reviews! The lady at reception was friendly, then we were served mint tea and Moroccan sweets while we filled out paperwork. All the 14 rooms are themed and your key is a Moroccan leather slipper! We stayed on...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
UNIK PALAIS enjoys the best of both worlds: a perfect location in the enchanting Atlantic resort of Essaouira, just a stone's throw from the fine sandy beach of the bay, yet it is only a few minute's walk to the colourful souks and shops of the old walled Medina. The hotel offers14 well-equipped rooms and suites, each is unique and stylishly designed, but all are spacious and bright, united by attention to detail and comfort. All rooms come with an en suite bathroom (bath or shower), mini bar, safe, heating, satellite TV, phone and Wi-Fi. Most rooms have a private terrace or balcony with views, overlooking the ocean, the gardens or the Medina. There are also several inter-connecting rooms, which are ideal for families. Outside, a good-size heated swimming pool is set in a pretty garden, provides an ideal spot for guests to while away the hours, sunbathing, reading or just relaxing. Tucked away at the back of the garden, is the hotel's intimate Oriental Spa, offering guests a good choice of beauty treatments, massage and hammam. In addition, guests can participate in the many activities available on the beach, just across the road from the hotel, such as swimming, water sports or even camel riding...... Our charming "L'O' Restaurant, looks out over the gardens and offers an enticing selection of Moroccan and Mediterranean cuisine. Unik palais offers plenty of communal spaces and quiet corners for both adults and children to chill out in: a cosy lounge overlooks the gardens and has comfy sofas, floor cushions and an open-fire. Our library and reading room on the mezzanine floor, with its comfortable leather chairs, good selection of books, 42" satellite TV and DVD player, is a great favorite with our guests, as is our cozy African Colonial-style bar. ... more   less
