I stayed three nights in Fontaine Bleue with my arabic course from the university and it was the best riad/hote I've ever stayed! Such a warm and lovely welcome, it will make you feel like home. The girls from the kitchen are sooo friendly and nice and they prepare the best breakfast and dinner !! The view from the rooftop...

We stayed at the Fontaine Bleue for two nights at the beginning of March. We were made so welcome and immediately felt at home. Everything is so clean and bright, from the sitting areas on the ground floor to the bedrooms and to the roof area where, weather permitting, you can have breakfast (and a very good breakfast it is)...

Stayed in Fontaine Bleue with my partner . I am half Moroccan and so was really excited to show my partner where I am from! No better place to bring him than to this wonderful, welcoming and charming hotel. I cannot speak highly enough about the staff. They could not have been more accommodating! We were greeted with smiles, Moroccan...

My husband and I spent a very happy couple of days here at the end of December. The riad is positioned within the fortress walls, a short walk to the medina, and is clean and cosy. Highpoint was breakfast on the roof terrace. As a previous reviewer has commented, the view is a bit more built-up than the original pictures...

The family that own Fontaine Bleue are lovely, we had a wonderful time here and were made so welcome - couldn't recommend it enough! The food and service here is excellent, and it has a lovely beach front location. We will be back again!

Booked for 3 nights to experience Essaouira. We couldn't have booked a nicer riad. The place is spotless and the staff are without doubt the best we have ever experienced in Morocco. We had the room at the top of the riad opening onto the terrace. It suited us but we were aware of the terrace being cleaned at 7.30a.m....

We booked this riad through another well know website. Our main reason for doing so, aside from the generally excellent reviews, were the pictures of the terrace that show an amazing view of the nearby ocean. Unfortunately this is slightly deceptive. While you can indeed see the ocean waves crash against the rock from the rooftop terrace, there is a...

We spent three nights here in early March. The hotel had arranged a taxi from the airport which was met by a man with a cart to take our luggage through the medina. As you are not alloŵed to take local currency into Morocco we paid in euros - 18. for the taxi and 2 for the cart (should have...

I can't say enough good things about the staff here - from the emails organising a taxi before arrival to the fabulous breakfasts, hot water bottles in bed of an evening and just generally always someone lovely being around to help with anything or just to say hello, they really make it feel like a home from home. The rooms...
