Great location if you want to be out of the busy city. About a 10 minute walk to Jemaa El Fna. Good buffet breakfast, decent restaurant, and friendly staff. Also very safe as the hotel is surrounded by a wall and has security at the front gate. Overall I very much enjoyed the stay.

It was a thrill to stay in the hotel in which Orson Welles stayed when shooting Othello.

Excellent choice for Essaouria Relaxing/Shopping
I have stayed at Hotel des Iles for more than 20 years and this was the first time in the main building. Rooms had been remodeled, new decor, new locks on door, great bathroom-- esp. big tub and excellent shower. Room of sufficient size for comfort and mobility. I saw the rooms around the pool that I always used to stay in and while larger, due to wet season it was far better to stay in main hotel. Restaurant was expensive and we ate there only once as a result; breakfast was fine with combination of Moroccan and Western breakfast choices. Excellent for convenience to beach and to souks and medina.

The breakfast was very poor. The rooms are very dated and old.

Long weekend
My wife and booked a long weekend at the hotel. The position was excellent being next to the old town, the beach and nearby restaurants that served alcohol.The hotel itself had obviously seen better days. Whist the location and the size of the rooms was fine and everything worked it was looking very tired and in desperate need of some modernisation and decor. Breakfast was very basic and if you arrived later there was little left. There was also a nightclub attached which was very noisy so light sleepers be prepared.That said in the chalets away from the main hotel it was not too bad .Overall for the price we paid we could not complain..
