We stayed here for six nights in February 2014. The service is personal and friendly and they couldn't have done more to make our stay enjoyable. My husband uses a wheel chair and there was always someone on hand to help with this. The open air courtyard is beautiful as is the roof terrace with swimming pool and comfortable chairs... More

Amazing hotel just inside the ramparts and within a safe short walk of the beach and town restaurants. Service is quite formal but very helpful and the inner courtyard is delightful. We stayed here for 7 nights in September and really enjoyed the roof- top terrace with lovely pool and nice restaurant and the service here was exceptional. We ate... More

Excellent hotel with beautiful roof terrace and pool. We were upgraded to a suite which was wonderful. It is very well located on the edge of the Medina, so wandering around is easy. Fantastic stay - highly recommend.

L'Heure Bleue let me count the ways I love you.... I love: The fact that our driver greeted us in style with a beautiful L'Heure Bleue marquetry (a traditional craft from Essaouria) paddle rather than a scrappy bit of paper with our names written on it. Your beauty - hidden behind your unsuspecting blue door lies a breath-taking, majestic building... More

We greatly enjoyed the tranquility and beauty of this hotel. Fun to explore the medina, walk the beach and then retreat to the hotel. We enjoyed the cinema and billiard a room as well as the roof terrace.

Essaouira should absolutely be on any itinerary for Morroco, and L'Heure Bleue is a fantastic place to base yourself at while exploring the medium sized, friendly and vibrant Medina. Location is impossible to beat, right inside one of the main Babs (gates) to the Medina and an easy walk from the parking lot. They have their own reserved paring with... More

This hotel is amazing. Beautiful dark woods throughout. Great service, well located (right at edge of Medina), nice amenities (heated pool on roof deck, billards). Restaurant is expensive for Morocco but a very unique gourmet meal.

I have split my review for L'Heure Bleue into two parts. Here I want to review the riad in terms of the accommodation on offer, which is definitely world class. I have written a second review for the restaurant, which to be frank was an absolute outrage, but this is not the place for those words. My wife and I... More

Just spent nine nights there...fab little place...just inside the medina so easy to find, get to. Staff really excellent...as they said, please treat this place as your home. Fab ground floor courtyard for b'fast, drinks, with bar (old English drawing room feel) and upmarket restaurant...you wouldn't want to eat here every night, which is fine as loads of great restaurants...
