We booked this riad through another well know website. Our main reason for doing so, aside from the generally excellent reviews, were the pictures of the terrace that show an amazing view of the nearby ocean. Unfortunately this is slightly deceptive. While you can indeed see the ocean waves crash against the rock from the rooftop terrace, there is a... More

We spent three nights here in early March. The hotel had arranged a taxi from the airport which was met by a man with a cart to take our luggage through the medina. As you are not alloŵed to take local currency into Morocco we paid in euros - 18. for the taxi and 2 for the cart (should have... More

I can't say enough good things about the staff here - from the emails organising a taxi before arrival to the fabulous breakfasts, hot water bottles in bed of an evening and just generally always someone lovely being around to help with anything or just to say hello, they really make it feel like a home from home. The rooms... More

I have never met such amazing staff in any hotel in my life. This riad is not only beautiful but what makes it special is all the people that work there. They made us feel so taken care of and one big family with them. I spent 4 nights in the terrace room (which I highly recommend as it has... More

We very much enjoyed our stay here. The location was central but quiet and it was easy to find our way around the town. The staff were very friendly and helpful, especially with booking a porter and taxi back to Marrakech at a good price. Rooms were very clean, stylish and comfortable and we would return if we visited Essaouira... More

We loved Essaouira - much more relaxed and friendly than Marrakech. From reading other comments on TripAdvisor we were a bit worried about the weather but it was lovely, warmer than Marrakech. The riad is centrally located in the medina and with sea views. The building is beautiful and cool and the staff couldn't be more helpful and friendly. Whilst... More

Fountaine Bleue is a small riad inside the medina of Essaouira. It is very clean, rooms are spacious (no TV for CNN junkies) and the owner is super friendly but I think that 60 euro for a rather basic accommodation and a basic breakfast is a bit too much. A similar b&b in a French or a Spanish countryside would... More

Stayed at this riad while visiting Essaouira. The location is great, with a wonderful sea view. The staff, all women, except for the night watchman, were extremely pleasant and friendly. Breakfast was very good, served on the terrace. Everything very clean and well kept. The room and all facilities good.

We stayed two nights at the Fontaine Bleue. The welcome we received was excellent. Our room on the terrace was small but very clean. The ladies who run the place are an absolute credit - kind, helpful and pleasant. Essaouira was a revelation. A great mix of old and new and a complete rest from the mania in Marrakech. Place...
