Hotel Les Matins Bleus
Ranked #18 of 75 Hotels in Essaouira
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 15 July 2017

We booked this Riad after a TERRIBLE experience at another one and leaving early. Les Matins Bleus was MUCH better! It is beautiful and owned by a family. We were greeted with tea and a map of the city when we arrived.

Our room was on the terrace and had a comfortable bed and a great shower :) At night we went up the stairs to the top part of the terrace and watched the stars for a while (beautiful!). Breakfast is yummy and they will bring it to the terrace if you wish to eat there, or you can eat downstairs also.

We were originally going to stay one night, but loved it so much we ended up booking for another. The wifi was out for half our stay, but apparently it was a company issue. I didn't mind too much as we were out most of the time anyway. Otherwise it worked perfectly. It is located in the old Medina. and if we are to return to Essaouira in the future (likely) I would definitely book here again. Thank you for an amazing stay :D

The staff at les matins bleus went above and beyond our expectations to make us feel comfortable, and always with a wide grin on their faces, even during the challenge of ramadan fasting! They were always happy to shed some local insight on essaouria and on the final evening cooked us a huge delicious homemade meal. The riad is stylish in an understated way with leafy vines hanging down and a rooftop terrace that is perfect both for lounging in the sun and sheltering from the wind. The big breakfast always set us up for the day with fresh fruit and juice. Its so comfy and mellow here you won't believe the mad alleys of the medina lie outside of the door. Highly recommend for a romantic experience of essaouria.

This is a perfect location for a brief stay in the heart of Essaouira's medina. Within easy walking distance of all the town's sights. Converted and run by several friends, the riad is welcoming and nicely presented in all it's traditional furnishings. Don't be put off by the little alley that leads the last few metres to the riad, it is freshly washed at least twice a day.

We stayed in room 6 on the 2nd floor, up in the fresh air on the terrace. The room was simply furnished but comfortable and clean. The double bed was surprisingly comfortable and the en-suite bathroom had plentiful hot water and good towels.

The included breakfast was very tasty, fresh orange juice, pain au chocolat (or a croissant), bread and tasty coffee. We had a small number of honey bees who visited us at breakfast to sample the home made jams (they were never any problem other than having to fish them out of the jam when they fell in!!).

Youssef (x2) and Siad, who we often found on duty at reception, were all charming and endlessly helped with ideas, tips and advice. Thanks!!

Everything was perfect.

The cute and beautiful little hotel is located in the center of the Medina and still very quiet and cozy.

The owner was incredibly helpful and he speaks four languages fluently (German English French Arabic) so he can help you out in whatever language you need.

The staff is super friendly and the breakfast on the sunny rooftop was fantastic.

The rooms were very comfortable and super clean.

We felt very welcome and at home and would recommend the hotel for everyone!

This is a lovely hotel located right in the heart of Essaouira: very clean, quiet at night, very good breakfast (including pain au chocolat and fresh orange juice), and the friendliest hosts (Samir and Youssef were so welcoming and had great recommendations for dinner). A really genuine place run by locals!
