We were do we begin, I am an avid user of Airbnb and have stayed in a couple properties which have been good, but this room as well as the property was really disappointing to say the least. Firstly, the house is not as bright as it looks like in the pictures. It is in fact quite dim, I don’t know whether it has been designed to create some kind of ambiance but I would imagine a lot of people would love natural light, especially in a sunny place like Essaouira
Moving on the real reason why this place was such a let-down was because the Host Majid does not run it like a B&B. In my opinion if you’re going to rent out rooms in your property they are some things that should be standard. Firstly they should be running hot water, soap dispenser in ever y bathroom, as well as toilet paper. When I arrived there was no hot water I was told by Majid that they were doing some water repairs, and it would be back in the evening. This was not the case ,when I used it the following morning. There was no hot water period, moreover the pressure of the water was ridiculously low .
The building is not clean, and by that I mean it appears that it, does not get clean as often as it should. The property has a fair number of rooms in addition to the lounge area, but if I have to be honest, I don’t think most would feel comfortable , for instance the kitchen sink had sand in it. Yes sand, the cupboards were stuffed, not with everyday cooking utensils but stuff which should not be in a kitchen. The bathroom was dimly lit and there was no soap dispenser either and the toilet tank took a long time to fill. It is stuff like this that really lets down this place. Furthermore the room I stayed in did not have a window , which opened outside so it got stuffy and humid. I guess the good bit about this place is the proximity to the market and the fishing harbor . I really hope this review helps Majid seriously think about running his place more professionally , which would make paying customers more comfortable to stay in.
Really incredible location, and such a cool place. Majid is a great host, friendly and helpful. Definitely recommend!
