Never Stay Here

My friend and I pre-booked, only to discover late at night when we arrived, they denied our reservation, despite having a confirmation. The front desk staff sent us into town (two women by themselves late at night) to find a computer to prove our confirmation. When we came back with the printout, they still denied us a room, despite being empty. The staff were rude and callous. I can't rate the room, because we were never able to stay there.

Top Local Tips for Essaouira

The Beaches!! Don't bother to pack your bucket and spade - to be frank the beaches are crap and the sea is brown!! Also the wind in Essaouira strips off any skin that is exposed for tanning. But please do not be put off the place - it is well worth a visit - just not for a beach holiday.

Bargaining Coming from the UK with its fixed prices in shops, the idea of bargaining can seem very uncomfortable but this is the Moroccan way. If they begin with 300 dirhams, make your opening gambit with 50 dirhams and find an agreement somewhere in the middle. Also be wary of buying things you didn't really want. Moroccan merchants are very skilful and can easily hoodwink unsuspecting tourists. Don't be afraid to smile say thank you and walk away.

Cafe de Plage We have dined here several times over the last year and it always lives up to its promise.
