Accomodation Needed: 23, 24, 25, August

by Sparra

We are a family that are coming to Morocco this summer. We are two adults and 3 children ( aged 15, 12 and 10 ).

We would like to find a place to stay in Essaouira for the nights of 23, 24, 25 August 2006. We are not looking for anything too grand, just a nice place to stay that at a fair price. We would also love to have the opportunity to meet with ordinary Moroccan people, perhaps even the opportunity for the boys to play some football as well.

If you have availability for these dates can you please confirm the details by email ( price per person per night or price per room ) and say what is included in the price etc.

If you have a web page can you please provide the address or email a few photo's of the Hotel / Room / Gite etc

We look forward to hearing from you.

Kind Regards

Sparra

i think you might like Hotel Cap Sim where ive just stayed with a friend. in a very handy spot and we liked the price - very cheap for us actually. you might be able to find an apartment cheaper - and there are some tips about that ive read somewhere in the essaouira vt pages or in previous forums so you might just need to do a search.
and its true i used to stay at apartments for about 200 dirham a night, often cheaper than that, but for places like asilah, marrakech,oualidia,tangier. and that means self continued and usually with a couple of bedrooms whic for your family might be ideal!

Travel Tips for Essaouira

The last one

by JLBG

All boats have finally arrived and moor side by side. There is not enough space along the quays for each one. Some are moored in third row. Fishermen are jumping from on boat to the other and there is much traffic but we do not see much fish !

Not so traditional local craft

by matcrazy1 about Street stalls

Unfortunately Essaouira becomes more and more a tourist trap referring to local handicraft. There are a lot of not so traditional local products on sale there. Look at my picture, please. I saw a number of lamps, in metal (which was very, very rusty) or in thin leather. Just a few examples of not so local craft but... if you like it, why not to buy one? Bargain, bargain, bargain. Good luck :-).

Don't miss the fresh seafood!

by JLBG about Le Coquillage

The front entrance into "le Coquillage" is easy to recognize. It is a few meters away from the fishing boats. The seafood won't wait ! We had only one meal in Essaouira and could not taste more than one restaurant ! Too bad !

Walk along the beach with a great view

by sachara

South of Essaouria is a huge beach. In march it was not really the right season to sit on the beach because of the cool winds, always blowing in Essaouira.

We had a hotel south of the town. We liked to walk to the town. The first time we walked along the beach in the direction of the town it was a great experience to approach the white buildings of the walled medina (picture 1, 2 & 3), emerging from the sands. We had also a good view at the fortified harbour just south of the medina (picture 2).

Bab Doukkala

by suvanki

This is one of 3 gateways into the Medina, and is the start of the main thoroughfare which leads down to near the harbour.

This straight road changes name along the way. Ave Zerktouni becomes Ave de l'Istiqlal, then Ave Oqba ben Nafil.

Along this thoroughfare You will see locals going about their daily lives- markets and shops are either side, with some stalls set up in the street.

Outside the gate is the bus station, about 400metres away.

Apparently in the afternoons locals gather to listen to musicians and storytellers that perform outside the gate. I'm afraid that I've not seen this spectacle, but on my next visit I'll have a wander along.

We warned by our guide not to wander near this gate at night time, as there have been some drug related incidents!

Inside the gate to the right is the start of the Mellah, the Jewish Quarter (please see my Mellah tip for more info)
