“A Little Tired”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 February 2005

I'd guess the Hotel des Iles was built in the early 1960s, when it would have been state-of-the-art. It was still OK, but could do with a touch of the 21st century. The location is good, just outside the old town and right by the beach. Our room was cottage-style in the garden, pleasant, if a little old-fashioned, with a verandah to sit out on.

The food was not that good by general Moroccan standards, and I wouldn't bother to eat an evening meal here again, though the breakfast was OK.

On our second night in Essaouira we stayed in a Riad hotel in the old town which I'm not going to name as I want to keep it secret so I stand a chance of getting a room next time I go! The whole experience there was far more authentically Moroccan.
