Coastal hotels & riads in Morocco, Essaouira

Charming little hotel 25 km from Essaouira on the famous windsurfing spot of Sidi Kaouki.

ABOUT: Daubed in white and blue – the colours of Essaouira, 15 miles away – this charming small hotel is a whitewashed villa occupying a beautiful spot.  Minutes away is the beach of Sidi Kaouki, one of the world’s most legendary surfing spots, with the wild sands extending for miles in either direction. 

 

ROOMS: Including a penthouse and five bungalows, Villa Soleil has nine rooms in total: each simple but comfortable and stylishly decorated.  All have their own patio and a strong shower; the two-bedroom first-floor apartment also boasts a Moroccan-style lounge and large balcony facing the Atlantic.  Wi-Fi’s available but can be slow.

 

FACILITIES:  Like a mini-medina, the hotel’s an appealing maze of short alleyways, stone arches, wooden gateways and secret terraces.  At its heart is a spacious courtyard with palm trees, high wind-blocking walls and snoozy hammocks; outside are attractive gardens.  Breakfast – crepes and breads with jams, honey and marmalades – is served here, and so too can be delicious Moroccan dinners.  If it’s chilly, the small restaurant has a fireplace.  Note that the hotel is cash-only and the nearest ATM’s in Essaouira. 

 

EXTRA INFO:  Watersports are easily arranged by manager Marie and her excellent staff, as are fishing, quad-biking and horse-rides along the sands.  Be sure to watch the stars each evening, and then rise early for a dip the next morning: the beach will be largely deserted. 

For your Moroccan surfing holiday at the Villa Soleil, call 01672 500555 to discuss your plans.

The Lawrence of Morocco map displays the locations of the destinations and accommodation that we have selected and visited; for each item, hovering over or clicking the marker will display a short summary and photo of that place or hotel, and hotel pricing. Follow the links in the info box to the full page listing which has much more information.

Note that the online map offers both a satellite view (click satellite in the top right) and, for some locations, a street level view (Drag the person in the top left onto the map). These let you explore the country; and when you wish to explore in person, or if you have any questions about the places you see, give our staff a call, or request a quote. Our staff regularly visit the places and accommodation that we feature.

When you book a holiday with us we will provide full driving instructions for reaching your accommodation, where necessary; these can be used by yourself, or you could enjoy the luxury of a driver. Alternatively we will arrange private (car rather than coach) transfers for you; helicopter transfers are also possible for some destinations.
