Enjoyed a few days in this hotel by the sea.
- location: easy walk into town, well lit and safe trot in to have a wander and Essaoira is perfect for casual exploring
- free parking across road from hotel with security
- big room (no need to book suite in my opinion) with balcony and a choice of view - pool or sea
- big comfy bed with great pillows
- sunbeds/towels on beach
- outside restaurant by pool has some buzz at breakfast time
- food, not great quality and rather spendy, I would recommend eating out - plenty of options on the doorstep
- lovely bar, but no-one in it so zero athmos- shame as they could do more to promote this and encourage people in; the hotel is rather dead generally of an evening
- breakfast buffet - reasonable selection of breaded goods, some hot options, cheese/ham and fruit. Coffee not so hot or good, which is strange in Morrocco. Also they don't replenish the coffee, for example as is typical elsewhere
- no tea/coffee making facilities in room, which I appreciate is not a standard 5 star thing but I like a camomile tea before bed!
- hotel could do with a decor freshen up, it's a little dated
Probably the main issue with the Medina,the staff are nice and there are lots of them but one has to ask for everything and typically wait some time for it to appear. Having staff circulate at meal times asking if everything is okay or would you like more of x or y would be appreciated I'm sure.
