Lovely maison d'hôte with beautiful decor, gorgeous pool and enclosed garden with semi independent rooms scattered round the garden. Warm welcome, friendly staff, Myriam the french owner is lovely, lives there in the main house, and Mossab always helpful! They found us babysitters, gave us tips on what to do, chatted to the kids... Charming rooms in the big airy... More

We stayed in the V.A. for one night, we could have stayed many more nights. A lovely place with an excellent staff and delicious breakfast. One can feel that the French owners take care of the villa themselves ...

To reach the property you need to come off the tarmac road and take a long dusty lane . Lovely looking property. There are several blocks or suites. We had rented 2 and could compare. They are spacious, have good facilities too. The only his is the internet only worked by the pool, not in the accommodation. But again, travelling... More

This lovely place is ideal to relax and enjoy the nearby beaches. The owner is really friendly and helpful. Just enjoyed our breakfast near the pool. The apartments are simple, comfortable and clean. The old city of Essaouria is only ten minutes by car.

Personal background: 30 years of independent travel around the globe, mostly the Med. Villa Amaryllis: Simply one of the best places we have ever stayed in and superb value for money.

Selfishly, I am reluctant to write a review as I would like to keep this place a secret and all to myself. My husband and I visited for 3 nights and arranged a taxi transfer with the owners via email to collect us from Essaouira airport and bring us to the Villa. The taxi took 20 minutes and was a...

Great property - you wouldn't know what is behind the walls!! Immediately after booking I receive an email with directions - very helpful but regrettably the restaurant opposite the dirt track turn in changed its name. I only found the road by having Google Earth pictures with me! The property is a walled compound with a fabulous pool, lounge area/dining... More

Fantastic place. Perfect, clean rooms with a small terrace, fantastic swimming pool, lovely place! We also had 3 delicious dinners at Amaryllis, prepared by a Morocon cook. In our three week stay in Morocco, this were probably the best dinners we've had. A last element worth noting it that the owners and the staff really go the extra mile for... More

There are quite a few luxury villas / riads outside Essaouira but I am glad we chose Villa Amaryllis. Not easy to find but worth the trouble. Very relaxed walled complex, pretty and comfortable cottages, extremely friendly staff. Owners only speak French but staff speak English as well. Absolutely no problems communicating and always with a smile. We came by... More

After this review, I am afraid that I will never be able to book this hidden little gem. This little villa was along a rutted, rocky road about 15 minutes to the south of Essaouira. The road to get there is fairly difficult but once inside the villa, its all worth it. And its close enough to go into Essaouira... More
