Score from 609 reviews Very good
The hotel was fantastic. When we arrived we were upgraded in to a premium room with no extra cost. We were shown around the hotel & the facilities were amazing. The location was great too; easy walking distance to the centre of the medina, the port and the beach. The hotel staff provided us with all the information we needed about Essaouira and were happy to help with any requests that we made. There was so much choice at breakfast which set us up well for the day. A fantastic hotel to match a wonderful seaside town.
After spending 5 days in Marrakech, L'heure Bleue was an oasis. The staff is amazing!
Hotel is perfect: great location, very helpful staff, always smiling and polite (especially the doorman with whom we chatted always when entering/leaving the hotel). Bottled water, fruits and dates were replaced every day. The best thing was a roof swimming pool with great views and royal breakfast.
The minus is that swimming pool closes at 6 pm and there is no service in the roof bar after that. And sometimes there was no wifi in the room
quiet and discreet staff, respectful and attentive Location Beautiful terrace with pool (rare in the Medina) Gorgeous colonial type style
proximity to street can be bothersome in mornings for lower floors Comfort and style come at a price
Wonderful in all possible ways. Fantastic breakfast. Unforgettable roof terrace with pool and splendid view of Medina and the sea.
The hotel organized a surfing lesson for us. The surfing shop ignored us for one hour while the staff drank tea. When its normal opening hour arrived after their tea, they took care of others while we continued to sit in the cafe next door. We were frustrated, the surfing shop lost a lot of money (savings to me) and the hotel made a mistake. I trust that the hotel will not recommend this place again.
The hotel is amazing and the staff were incredibly sweet and nice.
The A/C in our room was not working and it was hot. Instead of moving us to another room or upgrading us they offered us a 'fan'.
Staff was there to help and assist us all the way! .....only had to ask once! Including basket with towels for the beach. Towels, robes were changed twice per day. Gel wash,shampoo and body lotion were in great big bottles! Thank you Kamal, Neomi, Mohamed! And to all the rest of the staff. You exceeded our expectations!
Wonderful ...brilliant shower....excellent pool....breakfast to die for...great staff.
Wifi a bit iffy...comes and goes, epecially on the roof poolside area. Safe deposit box...bit of a joke...it was a lightweight plastic box, which wasn't bolted down...anyone could walk off with it...not a place to leave my best plastic watch!! ...told the manager this when he was doing a bit of grandstanding when we were having breakfast...he laughed it off...saying we need to trust our fellow guest...well, I do but not if I had something valuable that needed safekeeper.
One of the best hotels we have ever stayed in. Very friendly staff , the quality of service and facilities is second to none.
Quality of hotel, staff & location
A real 5*.
Great service, well staffed. The facilities are very good too. It's like a haven from the bustling town!
The terrace menu is well over priced, which doesn't ecourage you to stay. €22 for a club sandwich is a bit steep! Breakfast at €25 each is quite expensive too, but there is a lot of choice of fresh food.
An oasis of calm, understated luxury, delicious breakfasts. We loved it.
The roof terrace,bar and swimming pool closed at 6pm which seemed ridiculous.
swimming pool/ terrace. The hotel has a colonial feel in the decor.
The dining area and bedroom. A basic single is very small with no window and very little light making the room feel damp and drab. I think the hotel is nice enough overall but very over-priced ( basic double works out around £125 p/n )and the staff at times were a little difficult to communicate with. One member of staff was quite rude and un-helpful. The breakfast was very basic for a 5 * hotel but the food was reasonable quality. The dining area lacks any atmosphere and it can be quite cold in the breakfast area in the morning as it in an open-air patio down on the ground floor which does not get any sunshine. Sound carries all over the hotel and you could hear the washing machine late at night from a first floor double room so book an expensive top floor suite if you want peace and quiet and a window in your room.
Staff at front desk very helpful and friendly. We especially liked the door man! The location is good, although not on the beach, but personally I would prefer to be closer to the town so it's only a short walk to the restaurants etc in the evening. The beach is only 5 mins walk away. We arranged a tour through the hotel which I would recommend - although be warned the tour guide we had hardly spoke any English so it was more a case of being shown sites rather than learning about the history etc. The breakfast is great There is a cinema room which is perfect if your feeling a bit tired. We had a drink in the bar before going out to supper which was very nice
No tea / coffee facilities in the room - was charged for tea to be brought to the room which I though was unfair. When it was brought to the room the lady wouldn't give me the tray for some reason (she didn't speak English) and thrust a boiling hot teapot into my hand -ouch! No minibar in the room - when we mentioned this a kind man brought us a fridge, however it would be nice to have some drinks in it! The rooftop pool was freezing (I don't think it's heated). We didn't really use the roof terrace as a result. The room was small and dark - although it was nicely done - all of the rooms face an internal courtyard which means that unless we had the door / window shutters closed people walking past could see in. One of the magazines in the hotel advertised a restaurant / bar called Taros - DON'T GO unless you want to spend two days with food poisoning. When we went to see the owner to complain he was possibly the rudest, vilest man we have ever met. Check your bill at the end - they had added someone else's drinks to ours
Best location in Essaouira, staff is super and the building is great!!
Excellent hospitality, great location, delicious food and relaxing pool
