Went here for our honeymoon, and it was amazing. Fantastic service, really friendly. Rooms are kept really clean with snacks topped up every day. Roof terrace restaurant was so good, and great to have a big pool whilst still being inside the medina. You can walk really easily to the beach, takes about 15 minutes if you want to get... More

I cannot recommend this hotel highly enough - it's the perfect location, in the medina but with a rooftop pool so feels like an oasis, the staff are all incredible and it's so peaceful! This is my second visit as I couldn't find another hotel in this incredible city that ticked as many boxes!

This hotel, part of the Relais and Chateaux affiliation, is exquisitely renovated. All the rooms open into the lush greenery of an open atrium. In addition, the staff is very helpful. We had the least expensive room, and it was simple and perfectly designed with a comfortable bed and a large and functional bathroom. The only snag for us is... More

The hotel was everything you could wish for and more. The room was beautiful, the roof top pool area absolutely lovely and the service fantastic. Cannot fault this hotel at all - we would strongly recommend it to anyone who would like to stay in a little Moroccan oasis within the walls of the Medina!

A truly exceptional hotel. The staff - from the director, to the maid who cleaned the room - were friendly, natural and helpful in every way. The roof pool works beautifully, with immaculate service, and lovely snacks and drinks. The bedrooms open on to a spacious atrium, with a cloistered corridor on each floor, and a small fountain at the... More

I stayed in the Riad with my partner on a tour of Morocco and it was the best place we stayed. The raid is traditional, but modern at the same time, extremely clean and tidy with lots to do if it did happen to raid (luckily didn't while we were there!) The breakfast was great, the pool are was great,... More

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
