Heure Bleue Palais - Relais & Châteaux, hotel in Essaouira

This luxurious hotel features a terrace with a heated outdoor pool with panoramic views of the Medina and the sea. It is just 1312 feet from the beach, in central Essaouira.

Small enough to feel cozy, big enough to have a great restaurant, a billiards room and a beautiful bar. My room was very comfortable, with a little terrace. Staff was friendly, attentive and competent.

Suite Azur Hotel, hotel in Essaouira

Featuring a shared lounge, a terrace as well as a restaurant, Suite Azur Hotel is located in the center of Essaouira, a 8-minute walk from Plage d'Essaouira.

The breakfast is one of the highlights and a reason why we came back to stay at Suite Azur. The fresh OJ and baked items, along with beautiful fruit and honey and cheese and omelets on request are best enjoyed on the roof top deck overseeing the majestic views of the Atlantic. The room was perfect for us and our son, with incredibly comfortable beds, a sitting area to play cards and cross ventilation for great breezes. Yusuf and Farah and the rest of the staff are always eager to help out, will personally walk you places to be sure you don't get lost in the Medina and make wonderful recommendations for activities and restaurants. We love Essaouira and the Suite Azur is a huge factor in our fabulous experience there.

On the seafront, a 5-minute walk from Essaouira Port, this hotel is designed around a large outdoor swimming pool. It offers spa facilities, 3 restaurants and 2 bars, and free Wi-Fi in public areas.

Breakfast was fine. Similar to other hotel breakfasts. Sort of a Moroccan-continental breakfast with pastries, fruit, omelet station, Moroccan-pancake section, yogurts, breads and jams. It was nice to go down every day for breakfast.

FAQs about hotels in Essaouira







Morocco With a European Twist

Essaouira has developed from a hippie hangout to become a top Morocco beach resort with good surfing conditions. Its 18th-century medina is almost European in feel and narrow streets lead under low arches past fragrant spice stalls and local artisans selling everything from wood carvings to faience pottery.

Dotted around the souk are many traditional-style riads on Booking.com, hidden behind tiled façades and blue doors. Other Essaouira accommodation options include luxury hotels with swimming pools, cheap apartments, and B&Bs near Essaouira Airport.

Also bright blue are the rowing boats bobbing gently in small harbours sheltered by the Scala of the Port, a wide walkway with ramparts through which several historic cannons poke out. At the end is the Citadel, a small fortress overlooking Mogador Island - the largest of the Iles Purpuraires, so-called for the purple shells found in their rocks that were once used to produce dyes for Roman senator togas.

Another fortress – Bordj El Berod – lies in pieces on the long, sandy beach south of the marina. In the opposite direction the coastline is more rocky and lined by the Scala of the Kasbah, the crenellated walls protecting the medina. Horseriding and camel safaris are available on the beach and you can also visit a Berber village inland.

    Not as ‘hip’ as I’d expected but still worth visiting for the old town and souks. Nice walk along the beach and some good restaurants. Great horse ride along the beach but take care to book a reputable stable.

    Essaouira is a relatively small, compact, ancient, traditional Moroccan city. Narrow alleyways and traditional architecture. Cafes, stalls etc. An interesting fishing boat filled harbour with animated action, fish gutting, cooking, selling etc. City walls and fortresses to explore. Friendly non hassling people. Much more relaxing than Marrakech, whilst still having exotic ambiance. Inumerable restaurants serving good food at reasonable prices. You can walk from one side of the city to the other in 15 minutes (if you don't lose yourself in the maze!) This was a former 'hippy' hangout and it is easy to understand why.

    Lovely old medina and fishing port just a short walk along the promenade. If you explore the alleyways away from the shops you will come across workshops where the local products are being handcrafted.

    What a wonderful city!

    What a wonderful city! Beaming with actual local craft and art, lots of cute street cats and beautiful colourful houses with intricately decorated doors, windows and fountains. We fell in love with this small city and would love to go back. Pro Tip if you like cats: buy some vet cat food and walk around the city with it because those creatures will break your heart with their cuteness. I would recommend spending at least two days there. Get lost in the small streets to the sides from the main shopping areas. Visit the fish market, eat fresh oysters or other sea products. The beach was nice and serves as a great refreshment after long walks in Medina. Shopping was great and cheap but I would still recommend learning the actual prices first. For example, we got small tiles for 10dhs but in other places we’re getting prices like 50 or 30. Don’t be afraid to walk away and negotiate a bit. Especially if it is not the master themselves selling but a reseller. You can usually find actual masters on the smaller side streets (especially for wood and fabrics). I also noticed that women have fair prices more often. Food. Amazing street food and fruits! Don’t go to overpriced restaurants on tourist streets, unless they have a “menu” offer which can be worth the price. Otherwise, if you just take a detour from the main hustle, there will be tangine not for 80dhs but for 30. The food is also way cheaper outside of Medina.

    Impressive fort!

    Impressive fort! The Atlantic brings a fresh brise and a lot of problems for the buildings because humidity. It’s impressive to watch the ocean breaks at the city wall and sunset over the blue fisher boats. The Souk is small but fine and not so over crowded like Marrakech but not easy to get good prices because you don’t have many options like in other souks.But it’s a unique place impressive too!

    Good place with a chilled-out vibe.

    Good place with a chilled-out vibe. Great for those who are into surfing or wind sports. Also a cool place for those who like to try local food, shop at markets, or just meander through the narrow streets of a historic and vibrant town. Accommodation is affordable, food is tasty, and the people are friendly. Also lots of activities such as surfing and camel/horse riding. Easy to reach other towns and cities from the bus station.

They have a restaurant that is associated to the property which is outstanding!! One of the best meals we ever had and they made the effort to accommodate us because we were staying at the hotel. We also appreciated that the restaurant was pushed on us as an option but suggested.

Location is inside the medina and it was only a short walk to the shopping, restaurants, etc. Views from the upper floor were beautiful.

The property was decorated with interesting art and featured atypical fixtures. Access in and out was simple and easy. The breakfast was simple, delicious, and filling.
