After reading the reviews on various hotel sites we decided to stay at Domaine de l' Arganeraie during our visit to Essouira. It was the best choice we made, everything was perfect. The resort, the space, the riads, so beautiful and spacious, the tranquil surroundings and last but not least the friendliness of all the staff and the homely atmosphere and |"the extra mile" readily extended to each guest. Thanks again for your hospitality. We intend to be back soon.

This was the best service I have ever received on holiday. The staff are just exceptional at making you feel at home and like nothing is too much. They seem to read your mind and just 'appear' at the perfect moment! The hotel itself is in the most peaceful and beautiful setting. If you like nature there is no better place to stay. The bird song was the loudest I've ever heard. The rooms are traditional moroccan, cleaned everyday and on the 1st floor you get a beautiful view! The food was like Moroccan home cooking - so tasty, it felt a shame to eat away from the hotel! The kitchen staff deserve a special mention as they were just so skilled, and kind and made a huge effort to exceed our expectations despite the language barrier. They are a gem of the hotel :) all in all a brilliant place to stay. If you want a traditional moroccan, laid back atmosphere you will absolutely love it here. We will be back!

Room Tip: 1st floor is windier but views are lovely! All rooms are spacious and clean

We had a pleasant stay. I recommend this hotel, in a very nice country setting and very close to Essaouira. No matter if you don't have a car, taxi service is good and inexpensive. The room is very confortable and big and it's pleasant to catch the sun on the private terrace, right outside of your room. Breakfast and lunch are also ok. Domaine de l'Arganeraie is the right place for relax and for birds lovers, many of them playing around you and drinking from the pool.

As you said it's the right place to relax and for birds lovers, but also turtles, donkey and dogs. We're glad you enjoyed your stay with us under the moroccan sun. Thanks for your review.

Wonderful, we went during Christmas break...it was more than expected..great food, great service.and easy transport to town (few min drive) on demand...we are going back for summer break.. I definitely recommend this place in the middle of a lovely and peaceful Moroccan countryside , 15 min drive away from town

We stayed here in October 2016. It is not easy to find! If you are coming from Agadir or Marrakesh, we could not find any signage indicating where it was once we were in the nearest village. However if you overshoot and end up driving from the Essaouira direction, there is a sign on the right indicating the Domaine and a few other hotels down a rough road that becomes an even rougher track. It's quite a way! The place itself has a central reception building and several Riads that are effectively large houses with separate upstairs and downstairs accommodation. Ours was downstairs and consisted of kitchen, living room, 3 double bedrooms and two bathrooms. All the Riads are set amongst lawn and argan trees in a walled garden and there is a real sense of privacy and calm. The pool area is great and the staff were very attentive, polite and helpful. It was a very quiet time with not many guests so I'm not sure what this would be like during a busier time. We didn't have dinner here but the breakfast was extensive and fresh and lunches good if a little pricey as often hotel lunches are. Essaouira is a 15 minute drive away.
