Villa de l'O
3, rue Mohamed Ben Messouad
First reviewed by Lucy
This hotel is a meticulously renovated riad, and pays great attention to providing comfort for guests. Such small thing as a very late breakfast (you can actually have a nice breakfast after 12:00!!) was a little but pleasant detail.The hotel has nice rooms (actually we checked a few) with old charming furniture, objects of art and design in the rooms as well as modern facilities, including TV, nice bathrooms, good beds etc. (unlike some overpriced riads in Marrakech).The owners managed to balance the authenticity with providing a modern infrastructure to guests, all for fair price, an exception among a total 3 hotels we stayed at in Morocco.Staff at reception were helpful in providing us with tips about local restaurants (all tips met or exceeded our expectations).Overall, a very positive experience.
It looks great, the roof terrace is beautiful, the perfect place to catch some rays and the ground floor rooms are lovely and cosy. It has been beautifully designed. the breakfast was nice and the hotel had some nice touches like bottled water replaced in your room every day. The hotel location could not be better.
The staff at Villa de l'O were just fantastic - not intrusive but always incredibly helpful. Beyond helpful and very friendly too. The hotel was stunning, the roof terrace a joy and breakfast (the only meal served) was lovely.
Love the decor, so stylish and the the location.Beautiful!
Wonderful common spaces, good breakfast, great location!! Also Caroline and the staff were wonderful and very helpful.
We spent 5 nights at Villa de l'O on a family holiday to Essaouira. This was our first time to Morocco and we'd happily go back and stay at this wonderful hotel. Essaouira is a small place and the Villa is ideally located near the Medina and beach. We booked a room to share with our 4 year old daughter and had plenty of space. She literally had her own mezzanine floor! Our room was beautifully decorated and cleaned twice daily. The attention to detail was lovely with welcome treats in our room on arrival and bottles of water replenished daily. The staff were excellent. Always on hand to answer any queries or concerns and recommending places to visit. The hotel doesn't serve any meals apart from breakfast but this was fine for us and gave us the opportunity to try the many great restaurants in Essaouira. Breakfast in the hotel is wonderful and is served either on the roof terrace or downstairs near the reception. Definitely a great experience overall for us and we look forward to returning there one day soon.
Everything- our room was amazing. Service was fantastic.
