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...

A very quaint hotel with a beautiful courtyard. Excellent location in Essaouria. We were upgraded to suites which were large, not ultra luxurious but very nice nonetheless. Rooms were lit with candles every night for turndown. But the most amazing thing about the hotel was it's staff who were amongst the best i have come across anywhere, genuine, helpful ,... More

Beautifully restored building at the entrance to medina - just in the center of town. Main Essaouira beach is just 10 minutes walking away. After arrival we were offered a welcome drink - superb experience.

One of the best places we have ever stayed. Unique decor with buckets of character. rooms are all amazing. Can't recommend it highly enough. Staff very helpful . We booked the hotel with a special offer as a club member of luxury-riads .com (Authentic luxury travel). This hotel was a true authenic experience of Essaouira for us.

This riad, more like a boutique hotel, is located just steps into the magical Essaouira medina. The staff is very nice, giving very helpful tips of where to go and what to do. The rooms very comfortable and nice, although be sure to close the shutters as the streets can get noisy at night. The spa here is also good,... More

As seems to be so often the case in Morocco, noise and bustle (and large holes in the ground in this particular case) can be happening literally outside the door, but all remains calm and serene inside. This stately place worked its charms gradually.(It was always going to have a tough job coming after Kasbah Tamadot). Our upgraded room, with... More

We thought this place was wonderful. Obviously it is expensive but We thought the staff were excellent, without exception. We stayed 3 nights. It is a Riad rather than a normal hotel but has everything you could wish for. The restaurant is expensive but we ate there 3 times and thought it delivered exquisite food - arguably 'fussy' or 'over... More

We stayed at L'Heure Bleue in the beginning of October for two nights. You walk through a tall door that opens onto a teaming street in the old part of the city, a short walk from the seaside. Inside you are greeted with a lushly planted courtyard decorated in an evocative Moroccan style. The rooms are comfortable, but you need... More
