This deluxe, character hotel is in an ideal location just within the Medina walls, close to the harbour, beach and souk. Absolutely loved the colonial style and atmosphere of the place, felt as if we had been transported back to a bygone era... expected Poirot to shuffle in at any moment.
Service was excellent, staff were attentive and polite, the lovely smiley doorman in particularly provided a great first impression.
The spotlessly clean rooms were fantastic, we were given an upgrade to the most fabulous huge suite furnished in rich dark woods and fabrics. The entrance opened into a small lobby area with a fridge, desk and chair . This led into the large main room which was divided into two by a central fireplace. To the one side a lounge area with window seat and chairs and table and to the other side was a bedroom area with huge comfy bed, lots of storage, safe, moveable tv. Off the bedroom was the fantastic opulent marble bathroom, huge tub, separate shower, twin basins, separate private loo, thick fluffy towels & robes and locally made gorgeous toiletries. Supplies of bottled water, fresh fruit & dates were replenished daily.
Breakfasts were a very enjoyable start to the day. Orange juice freshly squeezed as you were being seated in the central courtyard, surrounded by the exotic plants. A superb buffet selection including fresh fruits, breads, patisseries, cheeses, meat, smoked salmon etc. etc. etc.. and a selection a hot pancakes and coffee etc. served at the table. Omelettes and egg dishes could be ordered.
Great roof top pool & lovely spacious terrace area with plenty of sun beds & efficient bar and food service.
We stayed here as part of a tailor made package, so are unsure of the individual hotel charges. We felt we got good value for money, as we were upgraded in every hotel.

A beautiful Riad on the edge of the Medina. Beautiful accommodations, excellent food and pleasant and helpful staff. The roof top pool and views are really nice. Not an intimate Riad, but certainly a top notch hotel. Dinners are superb, but also very expensive.

We spent 3 nights there relaxing after the hustle & bustle of Marrakech. From the moment we arrived we loved heure bleue - it is absolutely beautiful and full of character, a total oasis! The staff were very friendly & welcoming, nothing was too much trouble. The room was gorgeous. The only small downside was the air con wasn't v effective but it wasn't a huge problem. Breakfast was fabulous, great selection plus omelettes etc... Location was excellent just inside the medina. We really couldn't fault it at all and would thoroughly recommend it.

After a few bad experiences in the last couple of days it was time for lunch at L'heure bleue. We arrived and the staff immediately started taking care of its guests. We were seated in the shadow on the fantastic roof terras for an aperitive which was served with all kinds of nice food. After that we ordered the sardines and Maroccan hamburgers and again all great quality and served with delicious vegetables. A great experience that I can recommend to everybody and therewith the best in town!

The is a fantastic Riad, set within the Medina and just a short walk from the Souks.

The setting inside the Riad was very peaceful and the service first class, all the rooms are set around the central courtyard.

Our room was very large and equipped well. very comfortable.

Up on the roof you have a good sized pool with plenty of sun loungers spread around. The views from the roof give a good vista over Essaouira.

It is a peaceful place, a perfect location to enjoy Essaouira, which is compact and easily accessed from the Riad.

Breakfast was excellent and plentiful, this set us up well for the day.

The staff were very attentive and helpful and contributed to this wonderful stay.
