This is a very good hotel with a high reputation. The building is stunning, arranged around a large palm filled courtyard with the swimming pool and sun bathing terrace located on the roof. It is on the edge of the medina and an easy walk to the harbour and town centre. The bar is quite dark and can be a... More

Stayed for just one night on short trip away from hustle and bustle of Marrakech. Low key entrance just behind a square, lovely courtyard filled with palms and little pools, served freshly squeezed orange juice and pastries on arrival. Decided to brave a hammam experience with my partner- we were pampered with steam room, doused with warm water, covered in... More

We stayed only one night as a day out from Marrakech. It's a very unassuming building on the outside, very close to town and docks, but once inside it's an amazing and beautiful Riad. We were upgraded to a suite which was very well appointed and comfortable. We spent a couple of hours lying by the pool in the afternoon... More

Traveling with Abercrombie & Kent we stayed at some of the top hotels in Morocco and this was our favorite. The location is just inside the medina and the building is wonderful. Although the rooms were not very large, they had great attention to detail and were very well furnished. We were there in February and could not enjoy the... More

Moved from another hotel to this one, no regrets at all! Great place, decoration and ambiance! Regular rooms are not big, but quite comfortable. Restaurant is great, as well as overall service. Just the restaurant on the terrace run out of food when we tried a late lunch on Sunday.

A perfect place from which to enjoy all that Essaouira has to offer. A welcome, serene retreat within the walls of the medina and only a short walk from the beach. Nothing here is too much trouble. The staff are wonderful, the food is outstanding. Breakfast being an absolute treat, dinner exquisite. Suites are cozy and spacious with real wood... More

Everything about this fantastic riad is wonderful. The building is decorated in the old Moroccan style. Our room was a second floor suite which was spacious and comfortable. Staff is fastidious about opening doors and pushing elevator call buttons. Our dinner in the restaurant was delicious; served in front of a blazing fire. The only glitch was trying to find... More

This was our fourth visit to L'Heure Bleue. Whilst the beach in Essaouira is stunning, it is perhaps the hotel which draws us back. It seems that this is a hotel which attracts loyal and dedicated staff, many of whom have been working in the hotel for some time and are genuinely welcoming. It is so delightful to return to...
