Excellent position, nearby the entrance of the medina, with taxi only a few distance, quiete but so close to the median. The room so big and fascinating, fine terrace where to have breakfast. The staff is very kind.

Online this place looked amazing. And the rooms really do live up to the description along with the roof terrace. However it feels like its lacking in a bit of heart. There is no cohesive bar area and they have the room and the design aesthetic to develop that and make it feel much more inviting from bottom lobby up....

I absolutely loved this place. It was like going back in time to the early 30s maybe and then have it decorated by Restoration Hardware. The rooms were beautifully appointed as was the rest of the hotel. Lovely little breakfast room and excellent food. The staff was lovely. Wish we could have stayed here and in this sweet town longer.

We are in the prestige suite with sea view. Surely the best room, ask for Opium suite. Big rooms, huge bathroom with comfy bath with view of the ocean. The view is straight down the beach and lovely at sunrise. High enough up to not bother with road noise but the seagulls take care of that. The seafront is being...

This hotel is well situated, where the ocean meets the Medina. The breeze is very nice, and view from the roof pleasant. The staff is very accommodating, helpful and pleasant. The lobby is lovely and comfortable. We were welcomed in the lobby on our arrival with very good cookies and sweet mint tea. The included breakfast is served on the...

In this riad, all rooms are differently decorated in a romantic adventureish fashion. Some have windows to the outside and some have them towards the atrium in the middle of the buliding. The atrium is covered with a glass cieling, which makes it possible to sit and relax outside your room even on widy days (this town is on the...

We started at the Villa de L'O for four nights, two of which were during the 2016 Gnoua music festival. The significance of this is that the population of Essaouira quadruples for the festival...but the Villa De L'O retained its air of peace and tranquility. The service is efficient and generally understated, although our chambermaid seemed a little obsessed with...

Beautiful and very stylish riad. Amazing design and rooms. Lovely view from the terrace and very good location - close to all attractions, CTM station, port, restaurants and the beach. Totally fell in love with the view from the rooftop and the bed!

I like this hotel and its position just inside the Medina. It's a little "frayed" in parts but this is a 300 year old building in Morocco. It is very clean and the staff are very pleasant and very helpful. Breakfast on the roof terrace was excellent although it can be fairly windy hence the reason why all the windsurfers...

So despite that we have not booked this hotel in advance, we got a beautiful room where we could feel us at home at once.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Sheltered by the Medina walls, Villa de l'O is located at few meters from the beach, the souks, and at the doors of the Essaouira golf court. Eighteenth-century riad, the architectural spirit of Villa de l'O is given by the subtle alchemy between stone, sculpted wood, and the quivering of the beautifully made fabrics. Refined, the modern decoration of the house combines the oriental and colonial spirit. ... more   less
