We visited here with our family and enjoyed great cooking in a relaxed dining area.nthe owner is so welcoming and her staff really lovely. The fish was fantastic and we enjoyed sitting outside until the food was on the table.

We just returned from a fantastic 10 days' stay in Sidi Kaouki at Residence Le Kaouki. We received a warm welcome on arrival, and were able to use the safe court yard to leave our wetsuits and surfboards. Our room was very clean with a comfortable bed and lovely views over the court yard and the beach beyond. We loved...

We spent two very happy days here in December at the end of a week's holiday and found it to be the perfect place to relax. The hotel is distinctive - no electricity but apart from not being able to read in bed at night we didn't miss it, being able to hear the sea at night compensated and there...

Charming and peaceful. The perfect getaway from wifi land. A special base to explore Kaouki and its long quiet beaches. A welcoming team, friendly and helpful. Wonderful home cooked food of your choice eaten by candle light. As you sit in the courtyard watching the world go by you may see a camel, donkey, herd of goats - full of...

My husband and I had dinner here on the recommendation on our hotel. We were the only diners the first time we came here. The little old man was waiting for us. He quickly lead us inside to our table lit by candles. Our hotel manager told us to get the whole fish. So he let them know inthe morning...

I'd read about Residence le Kaouki in an article in the Guardian travel section and I thought it sounded absolutely amazing: no electricity, lit only by candlelight, in a rustic, exotic and fairly untouristy location. We decided to go for our first wedding anniversary and it definitely managed to exceed my already high expectations! The hotel is spotless, really beautiful,...

A beautiful place, that left behind so many impressions in my mind: incredibly tasty, fresh and diverse food - candles burning everywhere in and around the house, every night - spirited encounters with other travelers, young and old, on their own or with a whole family - stories from almost a lifetime in Morocco from lady of the house RoRo...

Wasn't my first time in le Kaouki :) We planned to spend some days in Essaouira for the Gnaoua Festival in may. Le Kaouki was the perfect place to enjoy the city, and go back to calm in the evening in Sidi Kaouki. As usual, the staff makes u feel home right away. Days were spent enjoying the beach body...
