We stayed for 5 days in this beautiful complex. The rooms are very cosy and very clean. There is a big terras and every room has a lot of privecy. The pool is great. The staff very very friendly. The restaurant serves great food for a reasonable price. Breakfast perfect. A place to come back to.

Hotel's Favourite
We booked two nights at Essaouira Lodge and really liked this place although you cannot expect the typical Morrocan Riad-style. The lodge is built in a way that you have a lot of separate houses which are connected through lovely gardens and small walkways. You have a main building with a restaurant, a pool-area and a chillout-zone. Also, you have a separate reception area where e. g. you can book a shuttle-bus-service to downtown Essaouira etc. The Lodge is lovely, very clean, very well looked after, with beautiful gardens, excellent traditional food and very friendly staff. It is located a bit outside Essaouira, which is not a problem at all as the Lodge offers a free shuttle-service. All in all we highly recommend this place.

We loved our stay at the Essaouira Lodge. The location meant it was so peaceful and relaxing, however the free shuttle bus meant we could also enjoy the vibrant and exciting city of Essaouira every day as well. We really enjoyed the buffet lunches with a fresh variety of salads every day which meant it was really easy to still eat healthy. Our suite was lovely and very spacious with a comfortable bed which wasn’t too hard as I’ve experienced in other places in Morocco. We loved our stay as we also thought it was excellent value for money. The gardens are so beautiful kept and you can tell a lot of time and care is taken to maintain them. We hope to return to Essaouira lodge in the future as it surpassed our expectations.

This was our third visit to fabulous Essaouira, but the first time we had booked to stay at Essaouira Lodge. The website had looked amazing, the peaceful location outside the town with a free shuttle service sounded ideal, but the prices seemed so very reasonable that we booked for just 5 nights in case we were going to be disappointed. As it turned out we fell in love with this delightful hotel, and stayed another 5 nights! We loved our comfortable, secluded apartment with it`s panoramic view from the terrace, the delightful flower filled gardens and beautiful warm pool, and the buffet style food at every meal was simply delicious and very reasonably priced. The icing on the cake was the exceptional service, especially the excellent Pool House staff and in particular delightful Abdulrahid and Ali. All the ingredients for a perfect holiday and we simply can`t wait to come back next year. Thank you so much Essaouira Lodge!

Essaouira lodge is a lovely little gem just outside of Essaouira. The staff were professional and friendly and constantly checked in to make sure our family was enjoying our time. From the yoga to the hammam to the lovely New Years celebration that the staff worked so hard on. The massage from Boucha was also lovely. Thank you for making our stay perfect.
