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

Super happy to find this place after the disappointing villa Marco. Not cheap obviously but well worth the extra for a couple of peaceful nights in essouira great for kids as has lovely pool. Large family rooms well laid out. All the extras you would expect at this standard.

I wish I could put 3.5. Nice enough, but we thought it was a riad. It was bigger and less personal than what we expected - not ridiculously clean, and slightly damp (likely owing to the proximity to the sea). But staff was friendly enough, it was clean enough... it was alright. It kind've felt like the style and feel... More

We stayed at L'heure Bleue at the start of October. It has a beautiful courtyard where guests can peacefully eat meals, have a drink of choice or simply relax. The rooms are nice, though nothing special. What makes this riad special are the people, who are very helpful and attentive. Their recommendations for tourist services were excellent (with the exception... More

We visited this hotel as part of a 2 weeks holiday in Morocco with my wife and my 3.5 years old daughter. This hotel has a lot of colonial character and we liked it very much. All furnitures are in dark wood. The hotel offers a parking for the guests which is constantly monitored. We had a suite which was... More

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
