I have been lucky enough to stay in lots of nice hotels all around the world but I have to say this is the best place we have ever stayed. From the moment you pull up to the hotel you get the impression that it is going to be something special - the grounds and the building are very stylish and contemporary. We arrived early, before midday, yet our room was ready and we felt welcome straight away (a nice cup of Moroccan tea and some macaroons helped!). The room itself was fabulous - very spacious and decorated in a contemporary style. It had a huge bed in the centre of the room, a walk-in shower and large flat screen TV. Others have mentioned the bed and they weren't exaggerating.The view from the spacious balcony was equally amazing, overlooking the gardens, the golf course and the main swimming pool. We made ourselves at home on the comfortable sunbeds (the size of double beds) and enjoyed a few hours by the pool. There was plenty of choice and availability of sunbeds despite it being half term in the UK. Later on we had a nice 20 minute walk through the grounds to the beach. As others have said this is a bit 'rustic', but all the better for it. Other than a few camels we were the only ones on the beach! There is a security guard to let you in/out of the hotel grounds which is reassuring. Towards the end of the afternoon we enjoyed some treatments in the spa. The prices were already very reasonable but they have a special offer on on a Thursday which makes it even better value for 2 treatments each (about £45 each for 2). Before the treatments we were allowed to go into the Hammam and the pool - both consistent with the quality of the rest of the hotel. The treatments themselves were excellent and by this point we were feeling completely relaxed. In the evening we had a few drinks in the Tiki Bar. It wasn't cheap (£4 for a beer) but considering the setting it seemed decent value. There were some traditional African performers on who were excellent entertainment! As we were half board we ate in the buffet. This was very good, although there could have been a bit more choice (lots of Tagines). The setting and the service was excellent. We had breakfast in the same place and this was top quality. Plenty of choice, pancakes and omelettes cooked to order, any style of tea/coffee you could think of. It really set us up for the day. For all of this I would not have been surprised to have paid £300 per night, but in fact it was only £100. An absolute bargain!
Dear Sir, Thank you for taking the time to tell us about your experience at the Sofitel Essaouira Mogador Golf &Spa I am glad to read that you had an amazing stay among us and hope to welcome you again during your next visit to Essaouira. Best Regards Laurent Vigneron General Manager
After a very poor experience at the Sofitel Marrakech we wondered what we would find at the Sofitel Essaouira. Overall the hotel was excellent, with staff that gave high quality service and always seemed to care about guests. Managers regularly checked if guests were happy and made sure that the high standards were maintained. The location is out of town so there is not much nightlife out of the hotel, which is not a problem. The town is a cheap taxi ride if an alternative is needed. Rooms are modern, well equipped and spacious, but you if want traditional style this is not for you. The hotel looks over a golf course with views to the sea and is great for walking, golf or just relaxing near to the large pool. Food is very good, especially the seafood Atlantic restaurant. It is a pity that this is not open in the evening. The bar staff are excellent and sunset drinks on the large terrace are highly recommended. Our only suggestions would be that an a la carte menu should be available each evening somewhere in the hotel - not everyone likes buffets. The a la carte restaurant was good when it was open. The hotel provides the excellent quality and service associated with the Sofitel brand.
Madame, Sir Thank you for taking the time to tell us about your experience at the Sofitel Essaouira Mogador Golf &Spa. It is always a pleasure to receive such a positive feedback from our guests. I am glad to read that you loved not only the hotel’s facilities and location, the quality of the food, the golf course, the sunset drink at the terrace of the Tiki’So bar, but also and especially the service provided by our ambassadors. I would like to mention that the Atelier Aux Arômes restaurant is open 6 days a week for a la carte dinner. Finally, in the name of the entire team, I look forward to welcome you again very soon. Best Regards Laurent Vigneron General Manager
I wont bore you with all the positives ....although special mention has to be made regarding the Golf course and the Golf club.....make use of both facilities, the course is in magnificent condition and the catering and staff at the Golf club were wonderful. Tips to future guests and improvements that would make the establishment 5 stars include: - 1. If travelling from Marrakesh make certain you have a few Dirhams with you as the driver on the way to the hotel stopped off for a break/meal 2. Book a villa - especially if you are in group of 3 or more... 3. Please can the Turndown service in the evening be done whilst guests are having their dinner rather than when they are getting changed for dinner 4. Make use of the free shuttle service from the hotel to Essaouira 5. Visit Essaouira....it is nothing like Marrakesh....less crowded, lots of good restaurants, friendly locals 6. Visit the Golf Club for lunch....Louis and his team make you feel special and look after you...the food is good as well 7. It would great if there was a pool table/table tennis table at the Golf Club....something for teenagers to while away time without bothering their parents ! 8. Management employ a Foreman and Maintenance staff to repair the little things that need fixing....sounds stupid I know but the little things are really important 9. Enjoy your breakfast ......really good and sets you up for the day 10. Management to open up the Atlantique restaurant in the evening for those guests not on full or half board...lunch there was good but the less said about the evening meal the better 11. Lots of middle managers running about doing not a lot (or that was the impression) get them to really interact with the guests (we were there for 9 nights and they hardly bothered us). 12. Go Quad biking - an experience never to be forgotten Overall, a wonderful experience with memories to treasure I am a Sofitel Platinum member averaging 60 + nights a year in an Accor Hotel so I think the above is a fair and honest opinion.

Beautiful hotel,lovely staff ,very clean. Room was gorgeous and the bed was sooooooo comfy.restaurant served a variety of foods ,all prepared /cooked perfectly. Only criticism is overpriced drinks and price for coffee and tea.no kettle provided in the room so you are extremely limited -either pay well over the odds for your morning cuppa or go wothout!!! If I were to stay here again I would bring s travel kettle and stop in the duty free shop en route.

ideal hotel for design lovers and spa lovers. the only 'bad' thing is that the service is 'horrendous' quite rude ,and at times ' liars' so be careful of added things on the bill and extras not accounted for....but yet alas your in Marocco.

Went for a family Christmas, with husband, 6 year old and grandmother. We booked a Mogador villa with views of the golf course. First impressions were very good and both rooms were of equal size with en-suites so there were no arguments as to who went where. Villa was well equipped and beautifully furnished – the beds were incredibly comfortable and bonus having an expresso machine at hand. Our pool area was lovely but the pool was not heated (as described) so impossible to swim. Christmas Eve they held a reception for all families, where Santa arrived on a camel to hand out presents to each child. It was a great event and an opportunity for my daughter to meet other children. She immediately made friends with a girl, and they made a date to visit the Kids Club the following morning. The evening buffet was equally impressive. Where this hotel lets itself down is on service. I felt it was very haphazard. When problems happened, it took a long while for it to be sorted. Our villa had ongoing issues with electricity, lights/heating not working and workmen were in and out for a whole day trying to sort it. Always polite and apologetic but when they finally left, they left debris all over the floor which wasn't cleaned up until the next day, despite various phone calls. Incredibly frustrating and meant we couldn't relax on our final day. A formal complaint was made and the manager agreed to offer us a free night, so we were glad that the problems were acknowledged. This could be an excellent hotel but it still needs to work on service that Sofitel is renowned for.
Dear Madame, Thank you for sharing your experience of your recent stay at the Sofitel Essaouira Mogador Golf & Spa. As you mentioned, we met several times during your stay in order to solve the situation in your villa. Please accept once again our apologies for the inconvenience caused. On a positive side, I was glad to read that you found our hotel beautiful and that you enjoyed the Christmas celebrations and the buffet restaurant, the Café Kasbah. On behalf of all of us, I look forward to welcoming you back to our resort in the near future. Kind regards, Edoardo Giuntoli
A really special hotel. We can only offer superlatives!The staff were superb from the second we arrived! We were met at the airport and driven to the hotel- a 2-2.5 hour journey but even that was excellent. Freshening towelettes and cold drinks provided, even a rest break if we had needed it. The reception staff were very helpful throughout the stay. The waiting staff in all the restaurants and bars were great too. The butlers were amazingly efficient and helpful too. The villa was kept clean and serviced twice a day. Put the card provided onto the bed if you don't want clean bedding every day.The grounds were tended daily as was the pool. There are security men dotted around the site and everyone was so friendly! The golf course is a delight as were all the staff working there and that includes the restaurant where we ate lunch on several occasions even if we were not playing that day! The walk down to the beach is long and follows a cart track through the golf course and across a minor road, then down a "dirt" track to the beach. Another security guard (and dog) here too. If you did not feel like walking the hotel staff would drive you down by cart and collect you later. We walked and then strolled along the beach to Essaouira. A good walk! The villa was lovely with open plan bedroom/bathroom facilities (toilet was separate),but the screen did not offer much privacy whilst showering for non-extroverts! Lovely rainfall shower and large bathtub! It will be a long time before the magic of sitting on the terrace watching the beautiful sunsets fades from memory and I hope to have returned to this hotel before that happens! Thank you for such a wonderful holiday.
