A great traditional hammam. If you want a European spa, as many posts on this site seem to, then this is not for you. But if you want to be in a real hammam then this is the place to go. I disregarded the bad...More

Service désagréable, horrible expérience : il faisait froid, le masseuse faisait des économies de savon noir, le gommage a duré vingt minutes. A fuir ! Awful staff, horrible experience: we were cold, they barely used black soap, the scrub lasted less than 20 minutes. Don't...More

Went to Hammam Mounia on a recent visit to Essaouira. Our hotel was not too far and we managed to locate it when we were in the medina. Not sure why there are so many negative reviews. Me and my friends really enjoyed our time...More

I was there on 2/1/2014 for a one hour massage. I have had massages and have visited hamans a lot in Morocco in the past time but this was really a bad experience. I had serious doubts about the hygiene in the room where I...More

Without a doubt the worst Hammam experience ever. The place is filthy, scrubbing materials, soaps and shampoos of a very low quality and continuously reused. The place was too small for the number of customers which meant sitting around naked on white plastic mould covered...More

The staff at this hammam was very clear upfront about what they were offering. So we were not surprised by the difference with the more lush Turkish hammams. However, what we both did not like about the male and female treatments were the dirty rooms...More

We were told by our hotel manager that this was the best hammam in Ess although having read the TA reviews I was sceptical. But on his recommendation we went - it was fairly close to the Riad we were staying in (the Wind Palace,...More

Just had a fantastic hammam here. Real good scrub down and friendly personal service in an atmospheric setting. Okay, it's geared to tourists and more expensive as a result. But the advantage of that is that you get a more personal service and are shown...More

This review is about men's treatment. It was my 2nd hammam experience in Morocco. The place is small (there are two stone beds for scrubbing, two for massage), not very clean, a bit smelly. Not hot nor warm. Even lying on the stone, it was...More
