Fodor's Expert Review Heure Bleue Palais

2, rue Ibn Batouta, Essaouira, Marrakesh-Safi, Morocco Fodor's Choice

Enjoy ample space and amenities like nowhere else in the medina at Essaouira's most prestigious lodging, a meticulously designed, luxurious property that evokes a colonial ambience in decor that includes cream tones, granite, and dark wood. There are few other places in Essaouira where evening entertainment options include an in-house cinema, billiard room, spa, bar, and a heated rooftop swimming pool with some of the best views in town. The restaurant and bar are open to nonguests if the hotel is just beyond your budget.

PROS

  • entertainment choices including a cinema
  • the only pool in a luxury property inside the medina walls
  • beautiful architecture

CONS

  • not the typical Moroccan decor some might expect
  • by far the most expensive rates in the medina
  • noise from the billiards room and bar can reverberate up to the rooms
