"Perfect location, great staff!"
This was my first trip to Morocco with friends and it was made all the better by the staff and accommodation at the hotel. We spent 5 nights here out of a 7 day trip. The location was perfect & like with many accommodations in Morocco, the entrance is deceptive of the beauty that lies behind! The rooms were spacious & the decor was fab. Each day the room was made up, fresh fruit (dates & oranges) & water were left & each evening our beds were turned down. The roof top terrace with pool was a great addition with towels and sun hats provided, you even get a complimentary smoothie shot which are yum-perfect chill out area in right inside the bustle of the medina! The staff were excellent and very genuinely friendly, nothing was too much hassle. Would definitely recommend this hotel to travelers of all ages (we are late 20's to early 30's).
"Beautiful hotel on every level... wonderful stay"
The decor is dreamy, the staff is gracious and lovely, the location in the medina is perfect, the restaurant is very, very good. We were there off-season, but the breakfast set-up is very basic-- I think that's the only negative thing I could say about this hotel. We stayed in a Portuguese suite, which was really spacious and cosy at the same time. Huge bathtub with beautiful bath amenities. We'll definitely stay here again..
"One foot in the past,one in the now!"
A very diverse place to visit,unhurried,old and the modern coming togethers! A very small airport only one plane in and out from uk twice a week! We are in our seventies ,and we're not alone on the tourist trail by any means ! Old and young mingle well here.We would certainly recommend it to anyone! We were in a lovely hotel,but our daughter and friends,who go frequently as flights aren't expensive,stay in cheap apartments.Also even in the summer it doesn't get too hot,surprisingly!
"Best hotel in Essouira by far!"
We have just spent three nights here as part of a three center holiday in Morocco. If you were not shown where the hotel is you would never find it. With just a simple blue door in a high white wall and no name sign it hides conveniently just inside the Medina. It is a total contrast inside to what you experience outside. You have the calm, splendor inside and a bustling Medina outside on your doorstep. Without doubt it is the best hotel in Essouira. It is on the site of an old warehouse that was turned into an orphanage then left abandoned for 30 years in 1960 until a local family bought it and turned it into a luxury hotel. It opened in 2004 and is a hidden gem. Despite being quite expensive it is good value for money if you want a hotel of this quality and style in this location. Staff are exceptional, rooms more than adequate, it exudes friendliness and comfort along with calmness and a perfect base to explore the town. It has a great hammam and spa which you must try whilst there.The rooftop pool is private, discreet and has wonderful views over the Medina and nearby harbour. Essouira is developing quite quickly with work to complete the promenade likely to be finished in the next couple of months and before the busy period. This gives you a good 4-5 mile return walk from the hotel to the end of the prom which has off it avast expanse of beach. Go now before it turns into a bigger more European style beach resort. It could get spoiled but lets hope not. Whilst there are some big chain hotels around, we suggest you choose this one for its charm, comfort, high quality and location. It has everything you would want of a top quality hotel
"Exceptional stay at L'Heure leue Palais, in Essaouira"
We were very impressed after entering the Lobby door to see the large beautiful lobby and garden leisure and dining area. This riad has all the ammenities, wonderful service, great dining, and very well appointed rooms. Just outsjde is the really unique medina with very interesting souks.and ancient and very active harbor. We very highly recommend this affordable luxury hotel.
