Just renovated so clean and fresh. I ate fresh crab in their restaurant and it was delicious. Lovely owner/manager who took time out to chat with me. As a solo traveller this sort of welcome makes all the difference. I love the lagoon, but this visit the water was too rough and too cold to swim. I will definitely return.

A single nights stop-off but the hotel was under renovation so we were moved to an apartment nearby. The actual hotel is in a great location adjacent to the lagoon and also a few minutes walk to the ocean side.Great little restaurant dining area where we only had breakfast. Cannot fully review the hotel stay but the stay in the alternative apartment considering the circumstances was more than acceptable. It was in a very quiet area (Oualidia at that time of the year is very quiet) and had all the basic amenities. Both the owner Jacques and and his wife were very professional, courteous and friendly during our stay. Also, I had forgotten that for this part of my stay, I had to pay in the hotel so left in the morning for Essaouira and then Marrakech without paying. I was quite embarrassed by this but his situation was handled very professionally by Jaques and the payment was taken two days later. In summary: Great location right next to the lagoon, good staff and even better management. I recommend you stay here if in Oualidia as its also very cheap.

This small hotel has several plusses: location - very, very close to the beaches - both the lagoon and the Atlantic and its own in-house restaurant - that serves nice food. As a solo traveler I don't necessarily recommend Oualidia - there isn't that much to do other than walking and the beach- - but this hotel is nice. It's affordable, clean, and friendly. Other reviewers have commented on the size of the rooms - yup, they aren't spacious -and it's not a luxury hotel - there are others in the area that fil that bill better. So, it all depends on what you're looking for (and how you like to spend your travel money!) The manager was very nice. I needed to exchange money, and he drove me to a nearby bank. Had a great chat on his views of the area, and appreciated his willingness to go above and beyond. This hotel also arranged a driver for me to get me to my next location, and I appreciated that a great deal too.

we came there for a late birthday dinner and chilled a while on the terrace because we were a bit early for the kitchen. personnel was friendly, prices ok and beer was a pleasant surprise. the atmosphere is rather european and the garden well-kept, we didn't mind to wait around. after some unwell days we couldn't trust our bellies with seafood alone. we ordered some seafood entree which was ok, as well as omelette and pizza which we cannot recommend. to be honest, we fed it to the cats. go there if you want seafood and alcohol, but if not go somewhere else!
