Sofitel Essaouira Medina & Spa Review

Looming over the beach, this five-star hotel has little of the magic that is Essaouira. Both exterior and interior decor fail to inspire, but it offers everything one would expect from a full-service international chain. As the name implies, the hotel has a luxurious thalassotherapy clinic for massage and beauty treatments and a huge pool surrounded by sun loungers. Sofitel also operates the deluxe hotel villa-resort Sofitel Essaouira Mogador Golf & Spa, about 5 km (3 mi) from Essaouira (on the road to Agadir). The 18-hole golf course designed by Gary Player is available to residents at the Sofitel Essaouira Medina & Spa.
