Staff superb. Roof terrace and breakfast
Room too small and location compromised by the rubbish outside the property and in surrounding derelict properties
The view to ocean is amazing!!!... Staff and facilities as well!!!
It's a bit far from the main old town door.... you have to walk a bit to get there...
The staff was very friendly and helpful. From the moment we walked in the door the staff took care of us until the 3rd day when Hafida got up early and served us an excellent breakfast at 6am so we could get to our 7am bus. Could not say enough kind words for the complete staff and great location and place.
Absolutely beautiful riad with a stunning location. Staff were so helpful and lovely. The place was decorated beautifully and spotlessly clean. There was always someone around to help. The views from the terrace are sensational and it was the best breakfast we had in Morocco.
Nothing - perfect place!
the room was great as was the bathroom. Breakfast was amazing and the location is perfect.
We were greeted so warmly and treated so well. The room was beautiful as was the rest of the Riad. Hafida invited us to have couscous at the Riad for dinner and we were not disappointed! It was the best we had during our stay. Also the rest of the staff were very helpful and kind. The breakfast on the terrace was another highlight. I really can't say enough good things about this place.
Very friendly staff, very clean room and quite big. very quiet, and a very nice roof with the view on the ocean and the city.
The bathroom didn't smell good in the morning when we woke up. Must have been a an issue with the evacuation tubes.
The staff is amazing, they make your stay at the Riad excellent. My daughter was asking for Fatima the whole day after our holidays.
Great host, friendly, helpful... Perfect location in the center of the Medina. I would highly recommend this Riad
The staff were friendly, warm and relaxed. We were only going to stay 2 nights but my mum liked it so much we stayed 4. Great breakfasts, lovely jams, fruit and home made yoghurt as well as the usual pancakes etc. Loved the bed- very comfortable- nice and firm.
some may find the street a bit dark and rather litter strewn but we always felt very safe and it was easy to find.
room was very clean room smelled clean good breakfast comfortable sleep nice helpful staff ocean view from roof affordable
Super friendly and helpful staff. Hafida makes you feel really at home and she's a great cook so make sure to book a dinner at the riad one night. Close to the sea with a nice view of the waves crashing against the rocks.
Friendly, helpful staff. Great position and view from the terrace. INCREDIBLE breakfast. Stunning rooms and riad inside.
The price on booking.com was not what we paid as we had to pay the rate of the hotel (55euros).
It was just great! And Hafida makes you feel 'at home'
They gather garbage in front of this riad, smell can be rather oppressive. This is not criticism, just an information. And at the end of the day, this is how it goes in Essaouira. But dont be put off by this, they will make it up for you in Fontaine Blue
Wish we had stayed longer the setting and service was fantastic , we will return !!!!
Lovely riad with tastefully decorated rooms. The riad is relatively easy to find. Staff are always helpful and friendly.
Losing the fantastic sea view from the terrace.
Very welcoming staff, clean and beautiful room, very nice terrace
Location: dirty and dark street, not nice in the evening
very clean, nice staff, nice lobby and a rooftop terrace, beautiful bathrooms,
modest breakfasts, the smell of the hotel straight out of the trash can,
All the staff was very warm and friendly. Great care was taken of us during stay. Rooms were very clean; Riad was renovated beautifully and stylish. From the rooftop there was a beautiful view at sea. Great place to go!
The meal cooked here was the best in Essaouira, and we ate at some highly rated places. Decorative touches Breakfasts with a view Staff
-stunning views -breakfast on the terrace (w/views) -cleanliness -simple but neat decor -helpful staff -comfortable bed and pillows -very quiet
-like most riads, still a bit stuffy -no window, so not much light -bad water smell the first night (subsequently fixed) -couple of small insects on floor spotted
Excellent riad, nice and friendly staff. Good breakfast served on the top roof terrace with view over the ocean. Great place to stay in Essaouira.
We were warmly welcomed by Hafida to La Fountaine Bleue. She was very helpful supplying us with a map and showing us places to visit, she even cooked a homemade meal for us, nothing was too much trouble. The Rhiad is very clean and is beautifully furnished throughout, we had a very nice room on the top floor. We loved the breakfasts served on the terrace each morning. We had a really relaxing stay.
charm of the room kindness of staff breakfast in the terrace
street works and some waste in the surroundings
Such friendly staff who went out of their way to help.
