Didn't get rooms we booked. Rude staff unfriendly service terrible breakfasts. Would not stay again. Towels for the pool like gold dust, all in need of a good overhaul. Good location for medina but would not recommend

The pool is clean, the have a (small) nice garden and the location is great! Next to the medina, just a few steps away from the beach and there are rooms with balcony and sea views. Downside: a...

Great set up to have a beer/wine while facing the beach and having a relaxing lunch. Oysters were briney in a good way. Fish was good not great. Very crispy good fries. Excellent setting, cats were a little whiny. Popular hangout during a quiet week and then not a long stroll to the medina.

Ocean Vagabond is a real cool place to hang out in the day listening to good music, eating a nice lunch and watching the beach and the kite surfers, camels and horses on the beach. It has a very sunny location with nice day beds for people to lie on or deck chairs to sit and drink a nice chilled...

I travelled to Essaouira with my Mum for a short sunny break and relaxation. The hotel was beautifully decorated and we were upgraded to the Pondichery suite with a pool view, due to the hotel being less than fully booked, which was great! They ensured our room was clean without being invasive! Throughout our stay the staff made us feel...

stayed here for 3 days R&R, meeting up with with my wife after climbing Mount Jebel Toubkal. The hotel sits on a long corniche and offers great views over the spectacular beach and is just a short walk into the centre of this iconic town. the hotel has a relaxed and easy vibe and serves extremely generous measures of Gin!

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
UNIK PALAIS enjoys the best of both worlds: a perfect location in the enchanting Atlantic resort of Essaouira, just a stone's throw from the fine sandy beach of the bay, yet it is only a few minute's walk to the colourful souks and shops of the old walled Medina. The hotel offers14 well-equipped rooms and suites, each is unique and stylishly designed, but all are spacious and bright, united by attention to detail and comfort. All rooms come with an en suite bathroom (bath or shower), mini bar, safe, heating, satellite TV, phone and Wi-Fi. Most rooms have a private terrace or balcony with views, overlooking the ocean, the gardens or the Medina. There are also several inter-connecting rooms, which are ideal for families. Outside, a good-size heated swimming pool is set in a pretty garden, provides an ideal spot for guests to while away the hours, sunbathing, reading or just relaxing. Tucked away at the back of the garden, is the hotel's intimate Oriental Spa, offering guests a good choice of beauty treatments, massage and hammam. In addition, guests can participate in the many activities available on the beach, just across the road from the hotel, such as swimming, water sports or even camel riding...... Our charming "L'O' Restaurant, looks out over the gardens and offers an enticing selection of Moroccan and Mediterranean cuisine. Unik palais offers plenty of communal spaces and quiet corners for both adults and children to chill out in: a cosy lounge overlooks the gardens and has comfy sofas, floor cushions and an open-fire. Our library and reading room on the mezzanine floor, with its comfortable leather chairs, good selection of books, 42" satellite TV and DVD player, is a great favorite with our guests, as is our cozy African Colonial-style bar. ... more   less
