My daughter and I stayed here for 3 nights during a visit to Essaouira. The location was perfect- just inside the Bab Marrakech gate in the medina making it easy to find and easy to walk everywhere we wanted to go. The porters, front desk and wait staff were all excellent. We had breakfast twice, dinner once, and drinks twice... More

We have visited Essaouria before but now that our offspring are older and want their freedom we opted to stay in the Medina. Our first time at Heure Bleue and it didn't disappoint. From the moment you walk through the front door you are made to feel very welcome. Moroccan hospitality at it's very best. Traditional design, with a central... More

Loved the colonial style of the hotel, centre opened courtyard with lush foliage! The location is perfect, inside the walls of the old city and just a short walk to the beach, the harbour and the main square. But what makes this hotel special is the staff from the sweet old guy that monitors the car parking to the team... More

If you are looking for charm, elegance, service to perfection, a palace with great history and design, and above all the most amazing dining experience, l'Heure Bleue is for you. The chef Ahmed Handour deserves a Michelin star...or rather not if we want to keep the restaurant a well-kept secret among guests. He proposes excellent, creative versions of traditional Moroccan...

We stayed at L'Heure Bleu for a full week and it was the perfect place from which to enjoy the delights of Essaouira. A luxurious oasis just inside the medina. Stepping through the big, blue doors from the busy, bustling street was magical and once inside, the hotel is an old-school, palm filled, calm haven. The staff are all fantastic;... More

Just left after two days in a Suite at this wonderful location. Such nostalgic glamour hidden behind the big blue doors... Breakfast was delicious, roof terrace was fab (albeit a bit windy) and the lunch BBQ exceeded expectations - so tasty and well worth the money. Didn't have the dinner as it seemed quite pricey, but I'm sure it was... More

We recently spent six nights here. The staff were friendly, the buffet breakfast was amazing. The air conditioner in our room wasn't working properly and after a day we were moved to another room where the air conditioner was working. The rooms were lovely but few minor maintenance issues need addressing in both rooms. The bbq lunch on the roof... More

Our beautifully appointed classic room was was one of the many delights to be enjoyed at this well positioned hotel. Breakfast in the luxuriant courtyard was a great way to start the day and lunch on the roof terrace was another delightful experience.

Loved the architecture (Les Portes du Succes!), food, service, close to the markets and the old city walls, roof terrace eating al fresco above the city walls. Delightful service, loved breakfast on the courtyard. Cooool. Would definitely come again.

Excel·lent sophisticated hotel. The service was sublime. However, we felt it was not a hotel suited for children under 10 ( although they try to accommodated them as well they could). Highlights: The lady making pancakes for breakfast in the Moroccan old fashion way in front of the guests. Brunch in the roof terrace after a swim in the big... More
