I have been severals time now and l'heure bleue is one of the best hotels i have been too, The service is excellent and the rooms are very well appointed. Essaouira is off the beaten track for UK visiters as there are no direct flights, but it is worth the 2-3 hour drive from Marrakech. During the summer it is... More

We had a suite and our friend had a connecting room -- just so convenient that way to go back and forth. The suite had a fireplace and since it was a cold windy nite in April, we asked the staff to make us a fire. They did, and left wood so we could keep it going. It was so... More

This is an absolutely wonderful hotel. In the Moroccan tradition, beautifully decorated and furnished with wonderful, caring staff. The suites are spacious and comfortable with very good lighting and stylish decor. There are fireplaces in every room should the wind cause the temperatures to drop too much. The restaurant offers some of the best food we have ever eaten. Very... More

A most impressive and comfortable hotel, just inside the city walls. The hotel has a lift, and there is a heated swimming pool on the roof. Good views in all directions. There is a log fire at night in the restaurant. The helpful and attentive staff will light a log fire in your room.The rooms are very well appointed and... More

Nice hotel in the Medina with a good atmosphere of the past..I was told that it was an old caravanserai. Nice room spotless, impeccable service and good food: In a word a very good stay despite of the chilly and windy weather. Not cheap, but it worth the money
