We traavlled from Marrakech to Essaouira on the Supratours bus. This is more expensive than the CTM bus but it's also faster and more comfortable. It costs 55 DH per person for a single ticket and there are 3 buses a day at 8.30, 11.00 and 19.00. The journey takes from 2.5-3 hours depending on whether or net the bus stops en route.
The Supratours station in Marrakech is next to the train station and you can buy your tickets right up to departure though at busy times (mostly in summer) you may need to book in advance. You can also register you luggage for 25Dh per bag though this is not really necessary.
The Supratours stop in Essaouira is just outside Bab Marrakech. (This is different from the CTM bus stop which outside the northern gate of the medina) Return journeys to Marrakech are at 6am, 12:00 and 16:00. Also, once you arrive in Essaouira you will be met by a variety of touts offering to carry your luggage into the medina, to find you a hotel and to show you around. It's best avoid this unless you have lots of luggage or no idea where you are going - if you do use one of these guides, be sure to negotiate the price in advance.

I travelled around Morocco by my own car which was great although gave some inconveniences as well like looking for guarded parking lots (quite easy in Essaouira). Main road from Casablanca to Essaouira was of good quality with very light traffic. Well, on the way, I added to my itinerary drive on not that good (gravel/sandy) road along the Atlantic coast.
Essaouira is locted at the Atlantic Ocean Coast, 350 km (218 mi) south of Casablanca, 190 km (118 mi) north of Agadir and 175 km (109 mi) west of Marrakech.
You can get to Eassaouira by bus or shared taxi as well. The bus and taxi stations are located north of town center/downtown. I think that a shared taxi is the best and quite cheap way to get to Essaouira, more comfortable than a bus in my opinion.

I booked a daytrip to Essaouira from Marrakesh. The minibus left Marrakesh around 08h00 and we left Essaouira at 16h00. It was an easy daytrtip to do.
