UCPA Essaouira

Instead of having a purpose built UCPA centre, in ​Essaouira UCPA use Hotel Miramar. The hotel is ​situated on the beach, in the centre of the town. Not only can you sunbathe on the private beach, but you can also take advantage of the many recreational facilities including an indoor pool and a sauna.  

Rooms

  • Multishare rooms are 2-3 person rooms
  • Twin and double rooms are available for a small supplement
  • Bathroom facilities are mainly en-suite

Dining

You will eat between 2 or 3 restaurants during the week, not always at the hotel, giving you the chance to experience different Moroccan cusine delights around the city. This is included in your holiday cost. 

Please inform us of any dietary requirements beforehand (e.g. allergies).

Difference to 'standard' UCPA trips

UCPA Planete, worldwide resorts, is a product that has been created by UCPA, but as they are not hosted in UCPA specific centres so they can be very different.

  • Trips are usually hosted by a hotel, so you will not neccesarily be sharing with others and may have your own room (please check rooming above). 
  • All meals are included, but they are not neccesarily buffet style within the hotel, they may be at other restaurants around the resorts. A great opportunity to soak in evening atmosphere and try different cuisines!
  • There may be non- UCPA clients in the hotel that you are staying in. UCPA will have a select number of rooms within the hotel. 
  • As these are new products to us, we do not have as many UK clients travelling to these destinations yet, but they have been running for a few years now and starting to gain popularity very quickly amongst UCPA fans. This may however mean that there are not as many English speaking travellers in these destinations, but as always, basic English is required of staff and instructors. 
  • Hotel dependent, but UCPA do not always provide evening entertainment so this may be down to you and your course group to arrange your evening activites.

These amazing products give you the opportunity to take on new sports on improve on current skills in fantastic destinations. It's all about getting to know the local areas and culture.  

History

UCPA is more than 40 years old, and was originally set-up by the French government to encourage young people to enjoy the outdoors.It is now a "not for profit" organisation with all profits being put back into refurbishing the centres and creating new activities.

The ethos of sport is still first on the agenda, but the instructors and centre staff don't forget that it is still your holiday.

    Testimonials

    • Imagine moules mariniereier, steak (cooked how you like it) and paella just to name a few options during our week and you get a picture of how well fed you will be at UCPA.

    • I love the system at UCPA where you can go as a group of friends, but still spend a full day out with other people right at your own level. 
      Amelia S
    • Having never used UCPA before I was not sure what to expect but the week I spent there was absolutely fantastic and I genuinely can’t wait to go back.
      Richard J
    • There is always a range of ages, nationalities, mixtures of solo travellers, couples, groups etc.  We have booked as a group of 6, a group of 36 (no joke) and even just me and my boyfriend – it works for all.

    • I wish I had discovered UCPA earlier.

    • The food is great and there is tons of it from breakfast, lunch, snack time (after your day on the slopes) and dinner in the evening. My favourite meal this year was on the Thursday evening when it was...

    • One click and you’ve booked everything. No searching around for lessons, ski-hire etc. And the best thing is you can keep adding people to your group.

    • The UCPA has its own bar which is slightly cheaper than anywhere else in the resort. It has a pool table, comfy seats and a good atmosphere.
