Madada Mogador

****

Standing vigil over Essaouira’s old-town ramparts, Madada Mogador hotel has the easy, clean-lined chic of a Parisian apartment. Downstairs, a central sand-hued salon leads to five zen tadelakt bedrooms and, upstairs, two ravishing suites offer startling sea views. Take up residence in this laid-back retreat, a haven of indulgent bathrooms with vast soaking tubs, breezy terraces and uninterrupted ocean vistas.

Highlights:

  • Honey-hued chic

    Old-town location

    Harbour-view terraces

Smith extra

A bottle of wine or a home-made pastry

In the know

Also need to know:

Smoking is allowed on the patio and terrace. The annual Gnawa Festival happens the last week of June every year, and the area around the hotel can be quite busy and noisy. Try your hand at tajines with a two-hour lesson in Moroccan cookery, taught in either French or English, and culminating in a two-course meal. The cookery classes are held in L'Atelier Madada, a former almond warehouse.

Packing tips:

Leave some space in your luggage for a stash of hand-loomed towels from the souk: they'll double as handy wraps on the windy beaches and stylish bathroom-brighteners at home.

Dress code:

Whatever you like lounging in.

Mr and Mrs Smith reviews

I am ashamed to admit that before we were invited to spend a night in Essaouira, I’d never heard of it. In fact, I could barely even pronounce it. As our taxi takes us through desert, I discover that my companion cannot only pronounce it perfectly – ‘es-sooo-weera’ with a stress on the ‘weer’ – but she was there 15 years ago. And recalling it to be rather windy, it has a delightful onomatopoeic ring to it. My Ms Smith is curious about whether it will have changed, having arrived last time in a limping coach and found accommodation by entrusting herself to the least seedy-looking guy offering

Dining information

Restaurant:

Right beneath the hotel in an old converted carob warehouse, La Table by Madada is an arched, bistro-style eatery with a menu that draws heavily from Essaoira's seafood-rich waters. The day's catch – octopus, spider crab, swordfish – takes centre stage in inventive dishes such as pastilla, gratin and carpaccio.

Top table:

If you're just after nibbles from the tapas menu, nab the high table for two.

Last orders:

La Table by Madada takes last orders at about 10.30pm.

Room service:

Snack service during the afternoon until 7pm: paninis, omelettes, salade niçoise.

Hotel bar:

You can order drinks in the informal lobby or on the roof terrace. Try the local rosé, a blend of syrah and muscat grapes, or the home-made fruit cocktail.
