1/5 Terrible

Disliked: Cleanliness, staff & service
Don't stay there with children
One male member of staff tried to kiss our young daughter on the mouth. When we consulted the manager we were told this was "normal in Morocco". Apart from that the place is well designed pretty to look at but has seen better days. Cleanliness is an issue, especially when staying with kids

4/5 Good

Liked: Staff & service, room comfort
Disliked: Property conditions & facilities
Lovely, peaceful location but showing its age
One of the reasons we booked Essaouira Lodge was the promise of a kitchenette so we could do simple food preparation during our stay. However, the kitchen in our apartment lacked any of the bare essentials required to use it, such as cookware, cooking utensils, or cleaning products. After some back and forth with the staff we managed to get some beat-up pots and pans and a scrubbing brush; we had to forget about doing anything more complicated than boiling eggs. The kettle was filthy and the coffee maker needed an hour of amateur engineering and cleaning to bring it to working order. The apartment itself was quite nice but very much showing signs of age and cumulative lack of maintenance. The shuttle service back and forth from the city is excellent. The pool is nice and the staff in the restaurant/bar are lovely. The breakfast, however, is a bit grim.

Liked: Staff & service, property conditions & facilities
Nice hotel, lovely staff.
We stayed here for 4 days and it was super relaxing. The pool area was great and the staff in the bar and restaurant were lovely. Our room was a little bit tired, and the bed was rock hard! There was also an awful smell from the shower which got progressively worse throughout our stay, they weren't very quick at resolving this which made it hard to spend time in the room. I had a massage at the hotel which was OK, but I would recommend getting one in the town as they are slightly better. Having the bus shuttle was brilliant as they take you into town whenever you request, and the driver was lovely. All in all I would recommend staying here as the price was so reasonable and the staff are so friendly, I was just a bit disappointed with our room, luckily we didn't spend much time in there!
