Noisy Suite

Bad (2.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on March 24, 2010

Suites #27, #29,#30 are built around an open central light well. There is no way to insulate any of these suites from the noise and lights of the other two. The guests in #30 can actually look down into the sitting rooms of #27 and #29. All of this came as a nasty surprise after we checked into #30. The loud, obnoxious extended family staying in the other two suites had a whistler, a high-pitched screamer, and an adolescent male who yelled "Shut up!" at regular intervals. Two adults often shrieked at the children, and everyone seemed to slam doors. This went on until 11pm and started again at 5am. Management was absent as far as we could see, and the poorly trained receptionist would do nothing except timidly ask the family to keep quiet.

I would never stay at this hotel again even though the building is beautiful, the food good, and the serving staff excellent.

Directions: In old city; in Medina near the sea.

Great (4.0 of 5.0 stars)

This rambling hotel, formerly three houses, is an intriguing eclectic ensemble of rooms and suites. We stayed there in November 2005. It was quiet but in more popular times I believe it is very busy and difficult to get a room without prior booking. The price is at the higher end of the prices that you'll find in Essaouira but it is a very relaxing and fascinating place to stay, very central, good views over the harbour and many nooks and public areas inside the cool building. In November though it was cold but there was adequate heating in the room, they even put hot-water bottles into the bed whilst we were out for dinner, a very nice and unexpected touch, most welcome when returning on a wet and windy night. The only thing that we were not too happy with was that you must have an evening meal there on the first night. There are so many restaurants which are much better value, and too be honest to our tastes the food could only be called average, though the service and dinning ambience was very good. Breakfast on the roof terrace overlooking the harbour is a wonderful way to start the day.

Unique Quality: Eclectic interior décor. A relaxing haven behind the drab exterior door.

Essaouira's Best

Best (5.0 of 5.0 stars)

I love Essaouira! And staying at the Villa Maroc always is a part of the joy!

Unique Quality: If you want only the best in Essaouira, if you want to be enchanted by the city, then for me there's nothing but the Villa Maroc. It comprises several old buildings in the riad-style.

Directions: Just inside the old Medina
