“A great 5* in a good location”
Reviewed 25 August 2014

A lovely hotel on a great beach, located just outside the Medina. The beach of Essaouira stretches for ages and seemed quite clean considering how busy it is. Having said the the hotel has its own private area with beds and attendants. The hotel itself is of a standard you'd expect of a 5* but without that big corporate feel you sometimes get.

Room Tip: Avoid sea view as it overlooks a busy, noisy road

Situated directly in front of the beach - the hotel has a private area with beds and loungers exclusively for guests. The room was nice and clean and the bathroom was especially high standard with a bath & shower. Staff were lovely and helpful from checking in to checking out. Special mention to Hicham who looked after us at breakfast by the pool each day and Brahim at the beach. Both really helpful, charming and an asset to the hotel.

This hotel is situated right by the beach, so it is walking distance to the beach front. Another bonus is that it is walking distances to the medina.

The hotel has a good size hotel room and it is very clean. The hotel has its own pool and its own tanning beds and benches. The hotel's restaurant is situated on the beach, but it is only across the street. We enjoyed the restaurant because it has a lot of seafood options and its walls are made of clear glass, so we were able to enjoy about 270 degrees of view.

TIP: The hotel is very close to the medina and we felt this medina was a bit more spacious than Fes' medina and Marrakech's medina. The pricing isn't so bad, so if this is your first medina stop, get some of your souvenirs here because the pricing isnt as bad. With this said, you still need to bargain, or else you will be paying too much.

Highly recommend this hotel due to its comfortability and its prime location.

If you are looking to relax and rejuvenate while on vacation then surrender yourself to treatments inspired by Le Médina Essaouira Hôtel Thalassa sea & spa. I been there and promise it is more than just spoiling yourself, it’s giving something vital back to your body, mind and soul.
f you are stressed and your body has tension, then this is the massage for you.
I thank all the staff ; Btissam, Hind, Bouchra and the Manager Mrs Nour they are all great and skilled.

From the moment we arrived at the hotel we were waited on hand and foot.
Organised by Kuoni our honeymoon was a first trip abroad for myself.
My husband and I were very impressed with the service we received from all the staff at the hotel who were all very polite and helpful at all times.
One of the managers Moulay especially made us feel very welcome and made special efforts to talk to us daily about the daily food on offer and give us information on the local area.
The food was wonderful with lots of choice from the three restaurants and the staff again lovely and helpful.
Very impressed with the hotel in general - always of very high standard, clean and tidy. Our room was lovely, cleaned daily and a turn down service every night.
The pool was clean and fresh and a delight to have breakfast and lunch by every day.
I'd recommend this hotel to anyone looking for a break away to Morocco and we hope to return someday.
Thank you Moulay and all the team for making our honeymoon a special treat to remember always :)
