Imraan Couples - 06/09/2021 Confirmed reviews ALL

For the spa , we had a treatment for 2 but my companion had to wait around 45 mins for me to finish my massage before he could have his massage. I think it’s because there was only one masseuse on site that day but this should have been communicated better or maybe one person could do the hammam first whilst the other one does the massage. This is to prevent excessive waiting times between treatment as otherwise it’s not pleasant to sit and wait for your treatment for 45 mins when it should be done right after.

Dear Imraan H., We very much appreciate your comments regarding your stay at the Hôtel Le Médina Essaouira Thalassa sea & spa - MGallery. We are glad to know that you have enjoyed your stay. Although we sincerely regret your disappointment with the SPA' service, please rest assured that your comments have been shared with the team in an effort to improve our service. We hope to have an opportunity to better your experience with us whenever your travels bring you back to Essaouira. Sincerely, Loubna BOUBRIK Room Division Manager

gurhan33 19/08/2021 TripAdvisor review

this hotel really does not deserve being a member of Accor group. Room is terrible, outdated and not tidy breakfast was disaster looks like inside was not cleaned ages. i have requested reception to book for me a table on the beach resturant which belongs to the hotel , and when i went there the manager told me not yet booked and he can do his best find a table for me outside then i got crazy and left there without having meal . i and my wife had have our dinner on the balcony with hamburger and Cesar salad .Although i nooked for two nights stayed one night went back yo Marrakech. Girls at the reception did their best during my stay however rest of the staff looks like they are forced to do work or doing without salary.

Breakfast was awful. No hygienic standards or concept. (Although our waiter was very nice. But overall situation did not make us feel comfortable. lunch - waiter was polishing cutlery and dropped a knife on the floor. And he saw that I saw it. Still picked and up and continued polishing the same! Beach Service? Non existent. Room was alright, although basic too. (view was nice - thank you for the upgrade) Pool - only broken umbrellas. Pool was freezing. Showers didn't work.....

Dear Jana S., Thank you for sharing your opinion. It does indeed sound from what you describe that some aspects of your stay did not meet our usual standards of service; please accept our sincerest apologies for failing to make your stay with us a perfect moment of relaxation, we sincerely appreciate you taking the time to bring this matter to our attention.

wheretonow2012 27/02/2021 TripAdvisor review

Such an old and dated hotel with poor customer service from the reception team. Hygiene at breakfast was also not good considering the current Covid situation - it was a help yourself buffet but people were not wearing masks or gloves including the lady cooking pancakes. We were due to stay two nights but checked out early and moved to another hotel

Dear Guest, We appreciate you reaching out on Tripadvisor to notify us of your concerns related to your recent stay at Le Médina Mgallery. We were most concerned to read your remarks on the service you experienced whilst staying among us, mostly because your comments do not reflect the usual standard of service we strive to ensure for our guests, nevertheless please rest assured that your review will be shared with our head of departments for information and further revision. Thank you again for making us your choice hotel on this occasion, we look forward to serving you again in the near future, for a better experience”

Comfortable hotel with a superb location. Only regret was not booking a sea view room. Breakfast was plentiful and we requested espresso coffee. fresh juices and pancakes available to order and such a pleasure sitting by the pool in the sun.

V0jtaH Family - 07/10/2019 TripAdvisor review

We did like the stay in Essaouira, maybe the swimming pool could be a little bit hotter as the ocean was cold and weather windy, but hot spa did compensated that very well in the evening. Room, breakfest, service all that was very good.

Staff make the place, rooms need refurbishment

TripAdvisor rating 4.0/5

michaeljcbrooks Couples - 10/03/2019 TripAdvisor review

The staff go to great lengths to make your stay comfortable, but there's nothing they can do to overcome the fact that the rooms are in need of a refurb. A few niggles, like the shaver socket not working, old features (like old volume controls) are still present and scuffed mirrors etc. The room is 'tired' and if you're looking for the usual clean/clinical hotel style, then maybe try the Sofitel as this hotel definitely has Moroccan 'personality'. The waiting staff work hard and are attentive. I would like to mention Nezha & Agoub at Reception for their excellent service. Housekeeping are also very attentive. The property is in an excellent location and the Beach Club is also great, this would be ideal in the summer. Overall, this property just needs Accor to pump some money into refurbishing the rooms.

Dear guest, We thank you for taking the time to write to us after your recent visit. We are delighted to know that you have yielded to many of our benefits. We sincerely regret that you have noticed some flaws in your home, we look forward to providing impeccable service to our clients and we will certainly consider your constructive comments and make the necessary improvements. We hope to have the opportunity to welcome you soon and regain your trust. Best regards
