We spent a few nights here unwinding after being in the mountains and loved it. Very characterful hotel with lots of nooks and crannies to explore. Great rooftop with amazing views and quality big breakfasts. Location in Essouira, by the port and main square, can't be better. Staff were warm and attentive, especially the ever cheery and helpful Fatima! We'll...

Villa Maroc is a sanctuary of perfect happiness, a treat for all the senses, a place of deep, soulful, creative bliss. Each year I am welcomed back as if I were family, by staff and owners alike, and equally I hold them very dear in my heart. Special mention must go to Fatima and Najit, to Hisham and Hassan. They...

Our stay at Villa Maroc was splendid. The service was especially outstanding. We were chilly one evening in our room. What a surprise when a gentleman arrived with hot water bottles - piping hot and very effective!! The breakfasts on the rooftop were delicious and enjoyable with the ocean view. Selections in the gift shop very good.

Our first impressions of Villa Maroc were that it really had the 'wow factor', but it was surprisingly easy to become accustomed to it! Our room had a separate seating area from the bedroom which was great and meant the bedroom remained uncluttered and relaxing. The small bathroom was light and airy - surprisingly difficult to accomplish in a riad...

Came here for a get away from the hustle and bustle of Marrakech. The whole hotel had a calming relaxed feel to it. Reception staff were really excellent, English not a problem!
