"Lovely riad but seen better days ..."
Honestly, is such a sleepy seaside town heure-bleue is a lovely escape, which lights up at night. Lovely rooftop pool, but it just lacks a bit of life. We felt like we are the only people in the place which meant no-one was serving on the roof. The room, which was sizeable smelt musty, like it hadnt been used for months, and the carpets and bedspreads were so dusty they could use a spectacular beating. The wi-fi was a disaster zone and dropped every minute ... 0.8mb/s so not enough to even send pics on whatsapp. Shame really as Its a relais et chateaux. Like essaouria i would say it has seen better days. Strikes me as a town on the decline. Quite a bit of game of thrones filmed here ... but the battlements are closed for rennovations for a year, no doubt before season 7 and 8 start filming the epic battle.
"Great hotel- if you have a room with a window"
The hotel has a beautiful inside garden. The bar is very impressive and the breakfast was very good. The staff was nice and inviting. But- the room that we stayed in had no windows and although the staff lid a scented candle - it had a moldy smell of a room without a window. To be correct - there was a small window that turned to the inside patio, but to use it meant zero privacy. When we ordered the room on a internet ,n they did not mentioned the fact that there are no windows. In our opinion the price of the room did not reflect the standard of it.
"Sophisticated and comfortable accommodation"
We stayed in a Premium suite on the third floor, which has a separate lounge area and office space, as well as minibar. The bed is king sized, very comfortable, and there is plenty of wardrobe space. The bathroom is large and well designed,with bath, separate shower and toilet, all designed in marble. The staff are very helpful and friendly. The central garden area is delightful and the setting for the buffet breakfast which is excellent. The terrace includes a pool, a bar and restaurant for lunch, and ocean views. With two lifts as well as stairs, it's easy to move around the hotel. Highly recommend.
"Well placed Hotel"
This is a very well placed Hotel just inside the Medina, so easy to walk to the Port and souk from. Lovely setting with a central courtyard, we had one of the few rooms that looked out away from the Medina so it was much lighter than the rest of the rooms which look into the courtyard and are rather dark. Lovely roof top pool and lunch bar. The hotel is rather "Tired" housekeeping was hit and miss the bath was a disgrace very very chipped with a horrid plastic mat to hide them, and the air con did not really work. No one was very bothered they tried to fix it but there was no sense of urgency or real interest. Essaouira is delightful really lovely well worth a visit
"Elegant, traditional quality"
This is a really lovely Riad. A relatively recent restoration with very comfortable, well appointed rooms, gorgeous courtyard, nice rooftop pool with great views, discrete but attentive staff and very good food. Just inside one of the gates of the medina, it is easy to access and close to the port and souks.
