- Roof top swimming pool
- Located in the old town
- Elegant, colonial styling
- High end service
Since it’s opening in 2004 L’Heure Bleue has fast established itself as one of the most luxurious places to stay in Essaoura. Part of the Relais et Chateaux group you’ll find a refined and sophisticated atmosphere and facilities which you wouldn’t find in many smaller hotels and riads. From the doormen who welcome you into the property to the concierge desk in the reception the experience is akin to being in a 5* London hotel. The roof terrace pool (which is heated) is surely one of the highlights, as is are the refined and elegant communal areas, including a Billiards room and colonial style drinks lounge complete with piano and roaring fire in winter.
Located just within the walls of the medina the hotel has 33 rooms, 14 standard rooms, 5 deluxe rooms and a collection of suites. Standard rooms are quite compact so we recommend opting for a deluxe. The room décor is fairly standard throughout, perfectly nice but lacking the artistic touches you find in some of the boutique alternatives. All rooms have marble bathrooms with a walk in shower, some have baths. Each room also has a safe, tv and a wifi connection.
Standard doubles at doubles starting at around €170 per night, expensive, but as the only old town hotel with a decent sized swimming pool L’Heure Bleue can command such prices.
We had an amazing time thank you very much! The riads and hotels were outstanding and everything went as clockwork. We had really bad rainfall on the day we transferred to Marrakech but our driver didnt give up and we eventually found a passable road ( which I think was the last possible one to get us there!)
Thank you so much!

We would very much like to give our feedback regarding our trip to Morocco because it was absolutely fantastic. From start to finish there was nothing to fault, Mustafa our guide in the mountains was great - discrete when necessary but delightfully eloquent and informed about a wide variety of subjects. The food in the mountains was superb ( though the toilet facilities in the gites d'etape left a lot to be desired!!) The guest house Dar Adrar was beautiful with amazing views. The riad in Marrakesh was lovely and such a welcome respite after the hectic souks.....and as for the surfing.....it was fab!!!! Mohammed our instructor was patient and so super cool....a real gem and great with our children.
All in all it was wonderful and we were all sad to leave. We will definitely consider using Tourdust again and wont hesitate to recommend you to our friends.
