Reviewed yesterday NEWvia mobile

Where to start? The villa is set in lovely gardens with a small, but adequate pool. The rooms are spacious (even the standard rooms), and well equipped with plenty of hanging space, and a very good shower. Breakfast is substantial enough to set you up until tea time, and there is free tea, coffee and water available throughout the day....

After 3 days of Marrakech medina madness we found this oasis of tranquility in Essaouira. Arriving by car we found it easily and were pleasantly surprised by the free parking right in front of the hotel. The hotel interior is held in traditional Moroccan style, very well kept and has lovely facilities (e.g. the peaceful garden, pool, roof terrace with...

Stayed here with my girlfriend Ellie in October. Met the son of the owner (Zachary) who went out of his way to look after us, even taking us on a day trip for free to nearby surfers town. Outside of that, we were upgraded to an incredible suite for no extra charge - the hotel is amazing, outside of the...

Classic and traditional hotel with great location, parking, nice and friendly staff, good pool and beautiful garden. The breakfast is also very good. Beach is only 3 minutes walking with some restaurants in front. The medina is 20min walking. Recommend it!

This was the most magical hotel! The building itself is an old palace so the furnishings and decor are stunning. It feels like you're staying in a museum. The rooms are spacious and the little touches such as the fresh red roses and bowl of fruit were much appreciated. The staff were incredibly friendly and helpful and as English speakers...

This is a hidden gem outside the old city (Medina) but within walking distance. Large and beautiful rooms, specious and grand common areas, meticulous maintained and with a garden and swimming pool. The staff was very service-minded and friendly and did everything to keep us happy. Highly recommended!

We had a great stay at VQ! The place is grand and beautiful. The grounds are green, tidy and quiet. And the staff are lovely and very helpful. VQ is a wonderful place to have as a base while exploring Essaouira.

Gorgeous villa 15 to 20 minutes from the Medina, but only 1 minute from the beach. Delicious 4 course breakfast with impeccable service. There are multiple lounges for relaxing in and the decoration with antiques is done beautifully. We had a large suite with an ocean view and were very happy with it.

If you like or don't mind hard beds, then this is the hotel for you. The decor and furnishings are full blown Moroccan. Absolutely gorgeous. Everywhere is spacious. The staff could not have been friendlier. The location is perfect. 3 minutes to the beach and good restaurants and 10 minutes on foot to the Medina. I haven't given 100% rating...

You are totally secure here. Villa Quieta is spacious, sunlit, tasteful and refined. A successful blend of traditional and modern design, you will find the same comfort as in the most luxurious palaces. We have 13 double rooms, a quadruple, a two-person suite, and a penthouse — each room different and personalized with original art, fresh flowers, handcrafted furniture, and modern, luxurious bathrooms. Breakfast is served on the terrace (overlooking the bay of Essaouira, the beach, the town and the port) or in the unforgettable grand salon (approx. 4,000 sq.ft. decorated with elaborately hand-chiseled plaster ceilings, mosaic tile and Moroccan traditional furniture.) For more intimate moments, you may choose one of the smaller, cozy salons with fireplaces. A unique green expanse in the town, the Villa Quieta is the only Charm Hotel situated in a scented garden. ACTIVITIES: Miles of natural beach await you for windsurfing, fishing, long walks, water sports, camel rides, horseback riding …all a few steps away. Art galleries, fitness club, cybercafes, artisanal shopping, massage, beauty treatments, hammam, available close by.
