The Heure Bleue Hotel is truly a five star hotel, with authentic surrounding of Moroccan Culture but offers the highest standard comfort to its residents. Perfect location. Rooms, services, dining and leisure experiences are up to perfection. All staff kind, helpful and professional. We have stayed here six years ago and hopefully will return at future time. Highly recommend the... More

We were very impressed with this gorgeous place, overall. The dramatic entrance into a courtyard of palm trees looks very impressive at night when lit in colors. The staff is friendly and helpful (though most of them don't speak English well) and the breakfast spread is delicious and never-ending (try the different jams). The pool deck is also a wonderful...

The Heure Bleue is a real oasis on the edge of the medina in Essaouira where the old town is a World Heritage Site. The staff welcome you with great warmth and nothing is too much trouble. The courtyard has a rare tranquility which belies the hotels proximity to the bustling thoroughfare outside. If possible book a suite where the... More

I had high expectations going in to our stay here based on the fact that it's a Relais & Chateau property and the website, description etc was awesome. It turned out to be good, not great. We stayed at the Palais Heure Bleue for two nights traveling as a family (2 adults, 2 kids). The hotel was well maintained, clean,... More

We were only supposed to stay for a couple of nights before heading on to Casablanca but the hotel was so nice we ended up staying longer. I was a little sceptical when we arrived after driving from Marrakeh. From the outside it doesn't look like much but don't let appearances fool you. I was stunned by how beautiful the... More

We 3 friends loved our 3 night stay at L'Heure Bleu; the staff were pleasant, helpful and attentive. After a long and tiring trip when we arrived on a busy night, the restaurant was full but they served us in the bar which was brilliant. Our junior suite was fantastic and the little curtained window seat a joy! The breakfast... More

We spent one week in this hotel. It is literally just past the gateway known as the 'Bab Marrachech'. We were dropped off by our driver and therefore did not need any of the porters who wait by the gateway to carry your luggage in their quaint little carts. After a long day of travel, we arrived at the hotel... More

Just spent 6 nights at l'heure bleue. It's right at the edge of the car free Medina so taxi can drop you almost at the door, great if you have luggage.

The hotel is convenient, with pleasant staff, and a peaceful tropical courtyard. My room had a tub with hand held shower, but no place to mount the shower head. Had I noticed the setup prior to my first shower I would have asked to change rooms. Taking a bath was next to impossible as the hot water pressure was very... More

You could not be better located inside the walls of the Medina. A stunning hotel with professional, attentive and considerate staff. Nothing is too much effort. We did not eat in the hotel dining room, but asked for recommendations of local restaurants. The deputy manager provided 4 names, two of which we tried and found them to be excellent and... More
