Amy Adejokun Section editor

The modern and spacious Atlas Essaouira & Spa boasts a great location facing the ocean, but if it's Moroccan charm and authenticity you're after, you'd best look elsewhere. Indeed, the emphasis here is more on meeting the standards you would expect of an international hotel than on showcasing Moroccan craftsmanship. If you don't want any surprises (good or bad!) when it comes to the services and decor, then the Atlas Essaouira is the place for you.

    Location 6.71 /10

    The Atlas Essaouira & Spa boasts a prime seafront location facing the Atlantic and just a stone's throw away from the city centre and the beach. There are also a few shops and restaurants nearby, whilst the airport is around a 45 minute taxi ride away.

    Accommodation 7.20 /10

    The hotel has a total of 156 guest rooms, all of which are decorated in exactly the same contemporary style, so don't come here expecting highly original and inventive decor. The padded headboards do, however, bring a touch of 'luxury' to the room, as do the studded doors, whilst the selection of pictures on the walls bring some colour to the surroundings. Free Wi-Fi is also available in all of the guest rooms. The suites come with balconies and are equipped with both a bathtub and a shower, whilst the bathrooms in the other rooms have a bathtub only. The decor in all of them, however, is surprisingly pleasant.

    Overview 6.70 /10

    This hotel is a member of the Moroccan Atlas hotel chain and opened its doors in June 2008. It stands overlooking Essaouira beach and boasts some rather imposing architecture, making it the largest hotel in Essaouira. This is also reflected in the huge lobby area, which might be seen by some as being a little cold and impersonal, even though the decor is quite smart and modern. The beautiful glass roof allows the Essaouira sun to filter into the room, while a few artistic touches were brought in to brighten up the reception area. If you don't fancy braving the waves of the Atlantic, stick to the swimming pool, which is heated during the winter months. The pool area isn't the most appealing, with a lack of warmth and greenery, but the hotel does have a small beach furnished with deckchairs. When dusk falls, or maybe even if the sun disappears for a while during the day, you might like to head over to the Daniel Jouvance spa, where you'll find a selection of massages and facial and body treatments on offer. For even greater relaxation, try the hammam, sauna, and whirlpool bath, or perhaps even the luminotherapy room! There is also a beautiful indoor swimming pool surrounded by colourful lights that rounds off the relaxation facilities. The ambience in the spa is authentically Moroccan, although it has to be said that the surroundings are perhaps a little too dark. The gym, meanwhile, boasts beautiful ocean views for all those dedicated enough to want to work up a sweat whilst on holiday.

    Food and drink 6.70 /10

    The hotel has a total of three restaurants, all of which bend over backwards to offer guests traditional yet sophisticated cuisine. The main restaurant, Les Alizées, serves international fare in a warm and elegant setting complete with padded walls, large, stylish chandeliers, and a fireplace. The beautiful picture windows open out onto the ocean and two terraces (one seafront and one poolside) where you can enjoy a breath of sea air. Breakfast is served as a buffet, whilst lunch and dinner are served as either a buffet or a set menu. If you fancy a truly Moroccan dining experience, however, book a table at the Safran, a small, intimate restaurant serving traditional Moroccan cuisine and furnished with little round tables arranged around a little fountain. A Moroccan night is organised twice a week with live musicians providing the entertainment. The beach restaurant, the Seven, meanwhile, specialises in fish and seafood and turns into a bar in the evening, whilst the poolside snack-bar is ideal for a light bite during the day. If you fancy an aperitif before dinner, head to the Amirauté bar, which provides a truly British ambience and affords beautiful views across the Atlantic.

    To know

    The Atlas Essaouira and Spa is due to undergo some renovations in the coming months.

        Hôtel avec beaucoup de charme. Le personnel est extrêmement serviable et souriant. Les petits déjeuners sont copieux et d'un choix très large. Dans la période où je suis partie les bruits du aux animations de l'hôtel ne m'ont pas du tout importuné. Le seul point négatif pour moi est que la piscine ne soit pas chauffée car malgré un climat agréable en septembre, le vent est très présent et ne permet pas de tenir la température de l'eau à un degré suffisant pour la baignade.

      • Advantages

        Les petits déjeuners, les chambres spacieuses et très propres. La qualité des services, le personnel très sympathique. Proximité de la médina

        Un très bel hotel dans la charmante ville d'Essaouira, situé juste en face de la plage. L'hotel propose un spa qui est calme, reposant et soigné. Le restaurant est très bien, mais manque de vrai plat traditionnel. Un gros plus: le bar L'Amirauté qui propose des petits concerts, une ambiance très sympathique rempli de bonne humeur. La situation est idéale car à 5 minutes en Taxi de la médina et du port. Les chambres sont spacieuses, belles et très propres.

You'll really feel at home here, thanks to the attentive and discrete service. It's very different from the other riads located in the medina, and maybe a little less authentic, but it is just as pleasant and most probably more friendly.

      The Ibis Moussafir has remained loyal to the chain's concept. It is simple, effective, and charmless, but nevertheless represents a practical option when it comes to spending a night or two in Essaouira. It should also be conceded that some effort was put into decorating the communal spaces. Bear in mind that the hotel is quite a distance from the city centre, so bring good walking shoes!
