My family and I booked for a week at Villa Bleue for new year 2012 as its reviews on Booking.com and Trip Adviser were so encouraging.
I suspect the management has changed recently as it wasn't the magnificent stay I was expecting.
The description on Booking.com has also been embellished some what, the hotel offers a restaurant, bar, snack bar and 24 hour desk. None of these facilities were offered or made available for us throughout our stay.
It is also an hours walk to the medina not 10 minutes.
The continental breakfast was shocking! Consisting of coffee, cheap additive packed orange juice, bread, butter and jam and one microwaved pancake per person (we heard the 'ping' every morning).
The housekeeping was non existent, we had one set of towels for the week and repeatedly had to ask for toilet rolls.
Due to mix up with rooms (hotels fault) our children didn't get the room we booked and had to change rooms half way though our holiday.
Our stay wasn't all bad the Riads day to day man Mohammed was friendly and did his best with what can only be described as poor management.
Needless to say we won't be booking again for next year.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Close to the Majorelle garden, a street, lined with orange trees, leads you to the Villa Bleue. This artist-owned villa offers you a magnificent stay and an enriching cultural and human experience. The shimmering water, the lemon trees, the doves, the painting and drawings on the walls... a longing to varied sensation! From the patio to the lounges, from the terrace roof to the hammam, everything accounts for a keen choice of colors, materials and objects. ... more less
