The proprietor, Bruno, is a wonderful host, and his staff is friendly and accomodating. It feels more like you are visting the house of a friend than staying in a hotel. Some of the rooms are very spacious, but the least expensive a much smaller. A beautiful property with wonderful people.

Villa Gonatouki is a special experience. It is a little bit remoted from Essaouira (8 km), the road to the villa is in a quite bad condition, but after you visit the villa, you easily forget this trifle. It is really worth it. To say so, villa has its own soul. It is special. The materials are unique and well selected, the architecture is great ( I especially enjoyed the narrow, at the time of our visit, heated swimming pool), the view from the balcony is superb. The personnel is charming and very professional, the food was great. Very fresh and tasty. It is obvious that the hotel is managed by a person who loves and enjoys his work. And really, Mr. Bruno, the owner and the manager, is simply a great guy. Very attentive, with excellent knowledge of how to treat his guests. He did everything to make us happy in his place. It is a fact, that this kind of hotel managers are rare this days. Absolutely recommended!
