"We were welcomed with tea and cakes and then shown to our lovely ajoining rooms. We were traveling with our 2 daughters aged 11 and 12. It is a small really friendly hotel with lovely communal area, where the fire was lite every night. [...] Breakfasts were good, fresh orange juice, yoghurts, fruits, all sorts of bread, cheese and jams. We were also offered omelettes. Guests can use the Hamman everyday which is included in the price of your stay. I also had a massage which was very good. The pool is warm and I did laze by the pool one afternoon. It is a very short walk into the Medina so perfect location. The rooms were spotless and bathrooms great [...]"

Rachel from Brighton, April 2013

"The hotel has a nice little Hamman, free Wifi, a library, a lovely pool and the most amazing breakfasts we had all holiday! Shame we only stayed 2 nights! The hotel is only 2mins from the coach drop off, which was very handy as we arrived from Marrakech, then headed onto Agadir afterwards : ) Would definitely recommend Ocean Vagabond hotel to others!"

A guest from London, March 2013

"It was the small things that made it for us: not only did they sew up a split seam in my trousers in minutes, but when we went down to our car to leave, we found they had washed it by hand for our departure. We have nothing but praise for this hotel, and would heartily recommend it to anyone."

Andy from London, March 2013
