“Pretty hotel in good position, but not very friendly”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 July 2013

This hotel is very pretty and has a lovely roof terrace on which breakfast is served etc. The rooms are simple but nice and comfortable - ours had a dodgy shower but otherwise everything worked. Unfortunately one thing that let the hotel down was the fact that the staff were not all that welcoming, and we were left feeling slightly unwanted and unfriendly, especially as we were told midway through our stay that they would be charging us for something we had apparently stained. The positioning of the hotel is very good, a five minute walk to the beach and a twenty minute walk to the medina along the seafront, which sounds long but is actually a very pleasant walk. Essaouira itself is lovely; the medina is very pretty and traditional, and the beach is also nice though very windy. I would recommend staying in this hotel, mainly for its position and comfort.

Room Tip: Some rooms have really nice outside patios and some are less good

Really great place to stay.
Large clean rooms, great roof terrace, very good breakfast, very friendly staff.
Very close to the beach, 15 mins walk to the Medina.
Excellent base for a kite-surfing trip.

Just spent a week here in a family room with my two young daughters. We had a great time - the staff are efficient welcoming and friendly and made our stay a very relaxing one. The home cooked Morroccan food on offer was fantastic. I'd return again.

Room Tip: The family room with two adjoining rooms and private bathroom and terrace was perfect.

Just left this place after a really pleasant four days......large rooms....smiley helpful staff.....great beds....quality pillows/bedding and spotlessly clean........wonderful roof terrace.......the whole experience was exactly what I was looking for....a place to chill and regenerate.......all the other guests seemed to be loving it too......great job ! One point..,location is a 10-15 min walk from the medina and most eateries/shops etc...for me this was fine but it may not be to everybody's taste.

Room Tip: Room 3 was large....didn't see into the others

Rooms were very clean and nice; felt the standard room was more than adequate for a comfortable stay.

Vent des Dunes is not near the Medina, it is a bit of a walk but its easy, its about 10 mins from the bus station and 15mins from the Medina. The walk along the beach is a good way to wind down.

Couple of mins to the beach and the people who can organise horse riding, motor biking, surfing etc.

Room Tip: Standard room is no different to the more expensive one.

I had a wonderful 2 night stay here. The room was very nice and clean. I believe it was about 30 euro per night. Located in a quiet neighborhood about 400 meters from the beach. Its about a mile walk to the medina or you can take a short taxi. Staff was very welcoming. Breakfast on the terrace was absolutely great! If you want to avoid the busyness and noise of the medina and find a nice quiet place to stay close to town this is it.

I very much enjoyed our stay at Vent des Dunes, we were unsure of where to stay - the beach or the Medina and we were very happy with the good service, and clean friendly hotel. The price is great, very good value for money, we found the hotel very peaceful and the roof terrace was a great place to relax and chill away from the medina. Highly recommended.
