“Oh I do like to be beside the seaside”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 7, 2013

Riad Chems Bleu was another fantastic riad in what is a fabulous town .
We had a great room on the second floor with a view of the ocean . The riad is right on the medina wall which adds to the stay as well.
The room was clean and spaceous and the garden in the common area was lush . Breakfast was served on an open air balcony with the seagulls gliding overhead.
The riad is located down a small lane but we never felt unsafe.
Essaouira was a great relaxed town which was a lovely place to finish our trip

We stayed for 6 nights in Chems Bleu. With very spacious rooms with direct ocean view, comfortable bed and bathroom this place is great. Staff is very friendly. They even did our laundry for free. We didn't have problems with the alley people describe. It is just the way every Medina is built in Morocco. It's small and people hang out everywhere. And it might even smell sometimes. However, we found it clean and safe. The place is within 3 minutes walking distance from the Supr@ Tours station and relatively easy to find. Next we will definately go there again!
The only weak spot we could find is that some neigbouring place had a fire going on the first two days, which was uncomfortable when wind blowing smoke our direction...

This is a lovely riad and is exceptional value for money. Our room was very clean,( as is the whole place) and bright with a view of the sea. The bed was comfortable which makes a nice change. We had a very nice breakfast on the roof terrace served by the very charming and polite staff. The riad is also very conveniently placed close to lots of nice cafes and restaurants. We took a taxi to Essauoira from Marrakech which the riad kindly arranged, and the taxi driver took us to the riad which saved us having to look for it.

We were very lucky choosing this place!
This wonderful Riad is managed only by very friendly maroccan women. It is placed at a quite edge of the medina with a beautiful roof terrace with view to the ocean were you get a plenty and delicious breakfast to start the day.
The rooms are very comfortable, bright and charming.
For the next time we will stay here for sure again.

From the moment we arrived in the riad Chems blue, we were recieved with great hospitality and we felt right at home. The first night, the host immediately gave us tips for a good restaurant (wich was very good and cheap , 2 good meals+drinks for under 150dh). We dont speak french but the host speaks good english. All together it was a great stay and we will definately come back there... many thanx again Chems Bleu team!

The riad is nice with a great view of the ocean. Rooms are spacious and clean. Breakfast in the morning is really good and they serve eggs and fresh juice in addition to the wonderful breads and crepes. The only thing I didn't like about this place were the creepy guys hanging around in the alleyway leading to the riad entrance.
