We visited March 2008. Patrick and his staff were excellent. They made our stay wonderful. We had comfortable twin beds, and a continental breakfast was included. Our bags arrived two days late and Patrick drove us to the airport to pick them up. He also dropped us off at restaurants and gave us details about places to visit, things to see and where to eat. He also set up affordable day trips with reliable drivers at reasonable prices. The rooms were of a decent size, the water warm, great views of the surrounding area. It is in walking distance of the Medina, but taking a taxi - easy to do - is preferable. We were glad we stayed here rather than in a Medina riad. Getting back bteween 7 and 9 from the Medina can be tricky, though. The hotel's price is reasonable, and is even a bit less today (Jan 2009) than what we paid last year. Patrick is a great host, you'll be glad you stayed here. La Villa Bleu is also about 3 blocks away from the very attractive Majorelle Gardens, well worth a visit.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Close to the Majorelle garden, a street, lined with orange trees, leads you to the Villa Bleue. This artist-owned villa offers you a magnificent stay and an enriching cultural and human experience. The shimmering water, the lemon trees, the doves, the painting and drawings on the walls... a longing to varied sensation! From the patio to the lounges, from the terrace roof to the hammam, everything accounts for a keen choice of colors, materials and objects. ... more less
