Family holidays should be all about relaxing together. This holiday has been designed for families who want to slow down and take it easy in the sun shine, but avoiding the package resorts. We have chosen our favourite boutique accommodation for a year round holiday on Morocco’s Atlantic Coast.

Morocco makes the perfect base for a relaxed family beach holiday with mile upon mile of sandy beaches and year round sunshine. Around the ancient fortified City of Essaouira there are several gorgeous boutique small independent family friendly beach hotels. Here families get the best of both worlds, where those seeking relaxation can indulge around the pool, walled gardens and spas whilst their more active family members can head out surfing, body boarding, camel trekking or exploring the ramparts, fish restaurants and souks of Essaouira.
With direct flights to Essaouira with Easyjet (from Luton), it is only a short 20 minute transfer to the small laid back beach side village of Sidi Kaouki and the boutique Rebali Riads. Don’t expect Kids Clubs and all inclusive options, like most properties in this area, Rebali is a child-friendly boutique hotel rather than a dedicated family resort. There is a tennis court, two swimming pools, including one shallow kids’ pool and three private pools for upgraded villas. Rebali is barely a minute’s walk from the huge Atlantic beach and the handful of small local restaurants and each villa comes with a huge modern kitchen and the hotel serves meals to your private terrace or pool-side. There is a fantastic surf school in the village and it is easy to arrange camel treks on the beach.
We have extensive knowledge of Morocco and our team have stayed at many of these resorts with our children in tow. The Atlantic Beaches can be rough (although usually less so in the summer months) and are best for older kids and confident swimmers – so a resort with a good pool is a must. Our advertised from lead in price is based on Rebali Riads, one of our favourite options, but depending on your own preferences and availability, there are several fantastic alternatives ranging from larger resorts to boutique hotels (see accommodation tab above). Please call us on (UK) 0203 291 2907 and we will be delighted discuss the best options for your family.
Quote is based on return transfers from Essaouira Airport and seven nights at a 2 bedroom villa at Rebali Riads in Sidi Kaouki.
We also offer the option to swap a couple of nights of your week’s stay for an incredible stay in a boutique riad (traditional house) in the old town of Essaouira or Marrakech where you’ll be able to explore the winding souks and heady atmosphere of old Morocco before retreating to the sensory delight of a traditional Berber riad complete with roof terrace and central courtyard. Please ask us for a quote.
Guide price is based on recommended accommodations. Alternative accommodations and upgrades are available. Please get in touch or click on 'alternatives' below for alternatives and upgrade options.
Marrakech offers the widest variety of direct International flights from the UK, but is a 3-4 hour drive from the Coast. Marrakech offers direct flights from London (Gatwick, Luton, Stansted), Bristol, Manchester and Birmingham.
Easyjet have introduced a twice weekly service from London Luton to Essaouira (Mondays and Fridays) which is an excellent option to save on transfer times and costs in Morocco.
Easyjet, Monarch and Thompson fly direct to Agadir further South on the Moroccan Coast.
Price quoted includes 7 nights peak season (covers school holidays) Bed and Breakfast in a two bedroom villa at Rebali Riads with private transfers from Essaouira Airport. If you are flying in to Marrakech, transfers cost an extra £80 each way.
We can organise a hire car, surf lessons in Sidi Kaouki through our partner surf school and camel treks along the Atlantic Coast. Please get in touch for a quote.
We recommend considering spending 2 nights of your stay amid the exotic atmosphere of Essaouira or Marrakech’s old walled Medina’s. Please let us know if you would like us to quote for this option.
This holiday is possible any time of year, with sunshine year round. Temperatures are highest from May to September, but still very comfortable with the hot temperatures inland well regulated by the Atlantic and the sea breeze. The winter still sees plenty of sunshine but temperatures are usually between the high teens and mid 20s (Celsius) with occasional but relatively rare overcast or stormy spells. During the summer holidays and May half term expect perfect sunny beach weather. In April holidays and October half term it is usually still very warm and sunny during the day, but cooler at nights. Christmas and February are good bets for winter sun, but expect to need to wrap up at night and be a little chilly if in the breeze and out of the sunshine.

Service rating : Tourdust arranged a trip to Morocco for my family of four. Their advice and help putting together the right itinerary was excellent. All the information we received before the trip was very useful meaning we felt well prepared for our first trip to Morocco. I would definitely recommend them and use them again
Product : Our recent trip to Morocco was fantastic. We stopped at 3 different locations - Imlil in the Atlas mountains, Marrakesh and Sidi Kaouki on the coast. All our accommodation was first class as were the transfers. The staff at all 3 places were so helpful and friendly. Would definitely recommend to anyone wanting something a bit different.

Another fab adventure holiday with Tourdust. After initial discussions with we had a personalised itinerary from coast to souks within our budget for our family of 5. Flying into Essouira was so easy, and we were in Sidi Kaouki in 15 mins with Rebali Riad as our base and wow.... what a gem! with a heated pool, tennis court, table tennis, resident turtles and a team of friendly hosts, led by the delightful Fatima and Mohammed. We explored Essouira, souks, ramparts, the harbour, beach walks and enjoyed lots of delicious food, including Rebali home baked cakes, pastries and the breakfasts/evening meals were excellent. Self catering was an option too. Sidi Kaouki was a brilliant base. Big skies, spring sunshine, huge waves, miles upon miles of golden sand beaches plus ever changing dunes.
A real highlight was horse riding with Equievasion through argon forest, salt marsh, dunes and beach. I booked this in the UK after rave reviews by Tourdust and Mohammed at Rebali, via email. It was the most fantastic riding experience. Jawad was the perfect host; rightly very proud of his 18 Arab stallions, all of whom were treated with upmost care and respect. Well managed horse yard with space, good feed and care for his horses. We galloped for miles along the deserted beach. We are keen riders at home & this ride was brilliant.
Then onto Marrakesh & Riad Adore. Set in the heart of the medina, tucked away in a quiet location with easy access to all the sights, souks and places of interest. As a family of five (2+ 3 children 15,13,12), we enjoyed two adjoining rooms, with a private balcony and staircase. The attentive staff were brilliant; so friendly and helpful. The plunge pool was an added bonus and much enjoyed ( albeit very cold!) breakfast was delicious, and the little extras such as freshly prepared pancakes, unlimited coffee & hot chocolate on the sun terrace, plus patio fire in the evening made our stay wonderful. The orange blossom scent, heavenly toiletries and very comfy beds were all much appreciated. We wouldn't hesitate to recommend Riad Adore, Rebali Riads & Equievasion. It was a perfect holiday. Thank you & well done Tourdust ( again!).

Service rating : Could not have been more helpful - prompt in keeping in touch and arranging everything
Product : The riad was all it was made out to be and wonderfully well managed - but they could perhaps have been clearer about what it was like around it and the limitations of local amenities
