    Location 4.3 /10

    The Sofitel Mogador is located at the entrance of Essaouira, facing the ocean. Essaouira is several minutes away on foot. The airport is 15 minutes away.

    Accommodation 7.95 /10

    The Sofitel has 117 rooms (including 8 suites) decorated with taste and refinement. Traditional materials of Morocco are used in elements of the decoration (tiles, mosaic ...). Some warm colours (blue and ochre) decorate the room. The rooms are equipped with television, telephone, a minibar, a safe, air conditioning and heating. They all have a balcony or a terrace. Bathtub, scales, bathrobe, slippers, welcome products and a drying line are all available in the bathrooms. In the suites, you will find a bath tub and a shower.

    Overview 7.20 /10

    Open since 2000, the Sofitel Mogador is an establishment where refinement is dedicated to one special place. The spacious lobby is elegantly decorated in an oriental style. A delicate fragrance of orange blossom greets holidaymakers right from the exterior entrance of the hotel. A Moroccan lounge invites you to relax for a while while savouring a glass of mint tea. The Sofitel offers its customers a thalassotherapy centre with a variety of treatments. A beautiful traditional hammam invites you to recharge your batteries. Two bars offer different cocktails. One bar is located in the lobby and the second is more cosy, with piano playing in the evening. Some groups have just performed here.

    Food and drink 7.70 /10

    Two restaurants offer international and varied cuisine.
    -"L'Arganier", located in the hotel, offers Moroccan and international cuisine. It is open for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. A terrace by the pool invites you to enjoy the sun.
    - Grilled foods and fresh foods from the sea make up the cuisine of the "Côté plage" restaurant, located on the Essaouira beach. It will be open for lunch and dinner. It is a marine atmosphere that reigns here.

    Beach 7.95 /10

    The private beach is located just across the road. It is a sandy beach, quite windy and ideal for windsurfing, surfing and kitesurfing. A water sports base is open to customers of the Sofitel hotel (at extra cost).

    To know

    advantage

    • The rooms are spacious and finely decorated .
    • The hotel's proximity to the beach.
    • The thalassotherapy centre and the hammam.
    • The focus on well being.
    • Rooms on the exterior (street side) have beautiful sea views.

    disadvantages

    • Limited choice of restaurants.
    • Although the hotel promotes a water-saving towel service, housekeeping still renews towels even if you leave them hanging as advised by the signs in the bathrooms.
    • Noise travels easily from room to room and especially from balcony to balcony as they are very close together.
    • Wi-Fi in the rooms is often problematic (but there is reasonable reception in the lobby).
    • The hotel could do with a renovation to make the interiors less dated and a little more cheerful.

      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 4.46

      This little urban hotel enjoys a good location but is rather charmless and nondescript. Despite the fact it occupies a nice 19th century building, it lacks in personality and character, which is a pity since it has the potential to be a cosy and enjoyable hotel.

      • Location 6.64

      The Villa Quieta is just for you if you want complete relaxation. The decoration is very beautiful but the hotel does not provide animation activities, swimming pools or any real gardens. However, its terrace is a nice place to get tan. The hotel does not serve alcohol and you will have to go out to get your meal. The beach is located opposite the hotel.

      • Location 7.57

      Modern, refined and chic, the riad Madada Mogador may remind you of a loft in architectural terms, but it's located in the medina of Essaouira. 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.

      • Location 5.0

      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!

      The Ryad Mogador is a very peaceful and new hotel, which is still not really up to speed. It has a swimming pool but no animation. It is on the other side of the Bay of Essaouira, opposite the medina. The rooms are comfortable. Be aware that you won't find any alcohol here.

The riad is also ideal for a romantic stay in Essaouira.
