First, I would like to distinguish in my review between 3 factors:
1- The place: Wonderful penthouse with an excellent view over looking golf course, ocean and Mogador island. The place is clean, quiet, and modernly decorated with care and love. Top of the line Bosch kitchen utilities, large bathroom, AC, WiFi, leather set in the living room, large TV etc, it felt like home. A nice French downstairs neighbor added to feeling welcomed.
2- The owner: Bruno, is a sharp, dynamic and classy business man, who will go beyond the call of duty to make your stay comfortable, and work with you if you have difficulties in your trip. He did just that with me, and made me feel I have a new best friend at my stay. Thank you Bruno.
3- The over all experience: Great place, wonderful hospitality, friendly owner and neighbor. Very positive and satisfying experience. I would do it again.
6 stars out of 5.
One of the best aspects of this fantastic property is the owner, Karim. He was incredibly helpful and responsive. He helped set up our late night transportation from Marrakech, waited for our arrival and even escorted us to a nearby market that night to make sure we had everything we needed. He gave us local information about nearby events and sights, gave us the scoop on pricing, helped us set up a rental car and even delivered us to the bus when we left. He went way above and beyond what we expected - and, in the course of our stay - became a great friend I will always treasure.
The property itself it very clean, nice, airy and roomy. Everything works, the bed is comfortable and the entire place is homey. The apartment is very conveniently located with a pleasant 10 minute walk to the beach or 20 minutes to the medina. Cabs come right by and the cost to the medina is 6dh (rough 60 cents, US).
I highly recommend this place to anyone staying in Essaouira. Karim, the owner, is very honest and trustworthy and a great person. The property is clean, safe, secure and comfortable.
