Set inland it is much less windy here than in Essaouira itself. The staff are very helpful and the free shuttle in and out of Essaouira is great. Accommodation of a good standard and the hammam was excellent.

It took me ages to book a place that ticked most of the boxes....and guess what I did! Essaouira lodge is beautiful array of buildings set in the National Park..so away from the medina and beach. A free bus shuttle lets you visit the beach and medina (only 15mins drive) whenever you wish. This great as you can return for...

We were a big group of friends with many children staying together at Essaouira Lodge and we had a great experience. This was our second stay and it's consistently good. The villas are great with lots of garden space to play in. The rooms and salon/kitchen are very spacious and clean. All the staff did everything they could to make...

We had 2 apartments for 4 nights. This is a beautiful place with lovely accommodation. All staff were extremely helpful and friendly. They arranged for our transfer from and back to the airport for us which was brilliant and they were happy to 'ferry' us down into the town and back whenever we needed to. Really happy to recommend.

Although the pool and setting of this hotel is beautiful, we were disappointed with the room - 2 bed appt with kitchenette - which was dark and badly lit and badly finished so the shower flooded the bathroom and kitchenette was pretty basic. We expected more for the price and the impression on arrival/online. The food in the restaurant was...

I have just come back from a week at Essaouira Lodge with my son. It really is a fantastic place, in a rural location outside the town. The staff were all so kind and helpful, particularly to my son. He danced for joy while he was there! We typically spent the morning around the pool and then went to Essaouira...

At first I was a little reluctant to book here, since I'd always stayed at traditional madina riads. However my friend wanted to stay somewhere with a pool. On arrival the Essaouira Lodge shuttle bus picked us up from the bus station and took us up into a wilderness about 20 minutes from central. What can I say? It was...
