“one of the best villages i ever visited”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 31, 2014

My plan was to stay here just 1 night, but i enjoyed it here for 6 other nights !!
Chefchauen is really cool, calm village (especially medina) and i felt so relaxed here.

I am sure i will get back here soon again.

“Blue streets”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 26, 2014

Easy to wander around getting lost and finding way back to main streets better than the bigger cities. The main square is very tourist oriented but it is possible to find other little quiet squares to relax in and at this time of year watch the locals painting everything blue!

“a tourist trap”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 22, 2014

Difficult to get to, and not worth the effort. The town is not even very blue! They ought to get together and at least do that. You can score hash easier than you can get a glass of good quality wine with dinner.

“Surpringly good small city”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 20, 2014

The minute I set my foot in Chefchzouen, I fell in love with it and its blue colored walls. This place is stunning and even though it is small we enjoyed a relaxing break from the bigger cities just simply wandering the blue coloured streets of the city taking in the life of the locals here. Fully recommend this place

“true Moroccan experience”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 16, 2014

Local foods off the main square are the best. Wonder through the blue streets and pop into antique shops. Look around before you decide to buy anything! also haggle for prices because the 1st is always way way way over priced. Its ok to accept a glass of tea even though you aren't going to buy anything. I found the best things in shops that were rarely visited.

Also great hiking is very close. A short bus ride north and you will find great views, waterfalls and Gods bridge. You don't need a local guide but stay on the path!
