Enjoyable stay but needs more attention to detail to be a 5*

Really happy with this hotel,amazing pool area and good breakfast selection. The rooms are spacious going outside into a lovely balcony. Beware the prices for food and drink are very expensive and the hotel knows there's no shops in the area so knows guests will pay. We ate in the buffet restaurant on the first night as arrived late and it was 350 dirhams each this could get you 3 evening meals in town with drinks. To say it's a 5 star it wasn't perfect needs more attention to detail for the little things. I would expect a much higher standard for a 5*-cracked and marked floors in room and corridors,dirty windows in corridors,chipped paint and personally would say it's a 4 star. We still had a positive experience and enjoyed the stay just agree with the other reviews with the hotel needing to keep on top of maintenance.

Good for Essaouira but not Sofitel standard

At first the hotel looks amazing due to its beautiful setting and large areal. The staff is mostly friendly, but unfortunately most of them are trained ver very bad, or probably not at all. It took 3 people to call us a cab outside of essaouira, which came 1h later than agreed. Often staff kept forgetting what was ordered. We started of with two towels per person and by day 4 had 0 in the room. The mini fridge is empty. Half of the bathroom did not work. The sheets were not changed even though they have been visibly dirty. Overall the hotel is quite run-down. Elevators do not all work. Cables are sticking out of the grass. Lights don‘t work in the bathroom. If you expect the standard of Sofitel hotels from other countries do not come here. If you want a decent Marrocan‘ standard 5 star hotel come. My suggestion: Fire the manager, train the staff and invest in repairs!
