Can't that there is anything here better than this. Rooms are spacious and very well appointed. Staff extremely warm and accommodating. Food well prepared and presented. A woman in native dress prepares crepe like pastries at breakfast to order. This is about 6 or 7 stars as far as I'm concerned. Comfortable pool area on rooftop terrace. VERY luxurious all... More

3 of us spent an all too short 2 nights in this lovely hotel. The location is fantastic, at the edge of the medina. This is a great place to go shopping with the added benefit of a short trip back to the hotel to deposit the booty! From the minute we arrived to the time of departure we were... More

Stayed here for 3 nights on first floor overlooking atrium. We arrived here after 8 hour drive from Skoura frazzled! Cool towels and welcome drink hit the spot. Rooms and towels could do with TLC. Food and service here was very good. Having already contracted a tummy bug whilst eating outside our previous hotels decided to play safe and eat... More

In a two week Morocco stay this was our favorite hotel, and others were twice the price. The atrium setting is truly unique and an incredibly peaceful spot at any time of day. Our suite was uniquely Moroccan but comfortable for westerners. Do not miss dinner at threir wonderful restaurant with classical guitarist and great lighting. The cuisine was best... More

I spent 2 nights in this typical Moroccan riad which is ideally located in the medina and also very close to the beach. It is a very quiet place where the manager and his staff obviously feel concerned by providing a lot of personal and delicate attention to the guests while remaining also nicely discreet. Breakfast is simply excellent just... More

This was the second part of my visit to Morocco. After a three hour drive from Marrakech arrived to the hotel just after mid day. Reception staff were polite and I was offered tea whilst I waited for the room to be ready. The twin bedded room was on the first floor with ensuite shower and bathroom. The air conditioning... More

Stayed at L'Heure Bleue for 4 nights - immediate reaction was good but soon found that this is not a typical Relais & Châteaux establishment. The twin room we shared was very small and smelled musty with poor air conditioning which was either on or off.... when we commented on this to the front desk we were advised that the... More

This is an exceptional boutique hotel. Situated right at the edge of the Medina just inside one of the gates. There is parking for your car and behind the blue double doors is a haven from the hustle and bustle of the crowded streets. The 3 story building is open on all sides to the tranquil inner courtyard where they... More

Having traipsed half-way through the Medina and then retracing our steps back to near where we started, we found this this wonderful hotel fronted by a barracks like facade and a small name sign. And on entering its portals....it had the wow effect....courtyard with a mini-forest through the reception area. Everything in the hotel was brilliant...with a couple of exceptions.... More

Stayed for 2 nights. Room was only ready some time after 15.00 so left us quite lost for lunch. Central courtyard with tropical plants is exotic and attractive. Room good, location just within the Medina and very close to the gate for taxi drop-offs and beach. Very wide choice during breakfast. Staff friendly and accommodating. Recommended.
