Villa Maroc in Essaouira
Staying at the Villa Maroc is more like staying in a private house, at once relaxed and informal. It is located in the heart of Essaouira and yet just minutes from the beach. Meals are served in one of the lounge areas (which have fireplaces), the patio or the roof top terrace depending on the time of year. The roof-terrace has superb views across the medina and the coast and is where guests can sunbathe. The villa, originally two 18th Century riads (houses built round a central courtyard) has 17 rooms and suites and 2 apartments. The superior rooms and suites have fireplaces.
Other facilities at the Villa Maroc include a hammam and internet access (internet is chargeable).
Ideal for families and individuals alike. Noted for its relaxed atmosphere and good food. Very "House & Garden".

Feedback and reviews
As good as Dar Anebar, albeit a universe away in terms of ambience. A very big place but so wonderfully higgledy piggledy that you only notice the fascinating nooks and crannies. The many differently styled rooms in which you could choose to dine, read, have a drink etc. mean it's almost like staying in a different hotel every night. Brilliant location. A large operation when set against the other places but they've managed to keep a personal feel and imbued the old buildings with immense character. Charming, despite its size. C.E. in April 2010
Very nice, informal, extremely polite staff, a great position and good food. Essaouira is a must for one/two days for anyone planning a varied itinerary. The town is very clean and relaxed compared with the bustle of Marrakech. A lunch at one of trhe fish restaurants in the Port is an experience. C.A. in March 2010
