Tucked inside Marrakech’s vibrant Medina is Le Perroquet Bleu, a calming oasis that feels worlds away from the sights and sounds of the buzzing city. This beautiful property comprises three distinct riads, including an open-air courtyard, lounge pool and a rooftop deck. There’s also a hammam, as well as hidden nooks and seating areas where you can relax. Breakfast is served each morning and typically offers such delicious fare as Moroccan pancakes with decadent cheeses, fresh fruit and just-squeezed orange juice.
If this is your first time to this magical city, you couldn’t ask for a more perfect base for getting a taste of what Marrakech is all about. Start by exploring the vibrant Medina, with its maze-like streets and souks. Then, head outside the city walls to fascinating places like Jardin Majorelle, Yves Saint Laurent’s former home, with its impressive garden, and the Berber Culture Museum. Take a walk down the street to 33 Rue Majorelle, a lively boutique that features many independent Moroccan designers with one particular favorite, the Harakat Sisters. If you’re feeling adventurous, book a tour to the Atlas Mountains or nearby Lalla Takerkoust.
Good to know
Please note that a city tax of €2.50 per person, per night is payable directly to the hotel.
Warm, traditional interiors and an eclectic mix of modern and antique features give each above its own individual Moroccan flavor. Junior suites and the larger Superior suites both include a small living room.
The hotel offers truly outstanding Moroccan dishes at lunchtime and in the evening, served either in your room, in the candlelit patio or up on the roof. Be sure to inform reception the day before you’d like to dine, as the kitchen opens only for reserved orders.Breakfast features fresh juices, traditional Moroccan pancakes and continental options.
The hotel boasts a pretty, tiled pool area and hammam, where you can also enjoy a massage.
Le Perroquet Bleu sits in Marrakech’s magical Medina, or old quarter, a labyrinth of winding alleys, buzzing souks and authentic Islamic architecture. The famous Jemaa el-Fnaa square is a short walk away, and the Royal Golf Course is a ten-minute drive from the hotel.
How to Get There
This Riad is like a stunning exhibition of Moroccan Medina Architecture. The detailing, which is everywhere, is fabulous. In fact it is three buildings combined which gives even more variety. There are stairways and nooks and crannies everywhere for you to discover and explore. Its a real beauty!
It has a calm and relaxing atmosphere, is spotlessly clean throughout. The staff are friendly and helpful. Breakfast is a continental style with a mix of breads and cake, fruit and excellent coffee. The rooms are well maintained and well laid out and have everything you need. The cleaners do an excellent job!
Logistics and such:-
Airport transfers were good and only take 15-20 mins. The location is away from the main touristy part of the Medina. Jamma El Fna (main square) is a 10-15 minute stroll and the area around the Riad is not at all touristy. This means you can experience some of the real Marrakech rather than just the square and the souk. We were picked up for our tours and trips from the end of the road.
I cannot reccomend this place highly enough.
This is a gorgeous riad; the pictures don't do it justice. The pool and lounge areas are beautiful. Our room (I think it was Mogador) was comfortable and gorgeous, with a large bathroom and separate toilet which was convenient.
More importantly the staff is welcoming and kind. We were served mint tea and cookies upon our arrival. When we left (we did an over night trip to the Atlas Mountains) they let us leave our bags so we didn't have to schlep our suitcases up the mountain. When we returned, I asked to buy a bottle of water for our drive to Essaouria, they just gave it to me and wouldn't take money.
as others have mentioned, the riad is on a hidden street. So take them up on the offer to have someone meet you wherever you are coming from so that they will get you there. We thought it wouldn't be that hard to find but had to ask someone for help (and of course they wanted money).
We got there late and had skewers, salad and fries, but the traditional Moroccan food at their restaurant needs to be reserved in advance. Worth it if you are arriving later as it's about a 15 min walk to the food in the Medina.
The street it’s on is really not appealing but once they open the door it’s like walking into a little paradise, the staff are always on hand and can not do enough for you, whatever you want they arrange, taxis, restaurants, excursions.
Rooms were lovely and clean.
We also used the spa and highly recommend the hamman.
We were a party of 6 and always used the taxis as it’s approx 20 mins walk to the centre.
Breakfast was ok but not much of a choice.
We also tried the lunch & dinner and thoroughly enjoyed it.
I was there last week. The riad is really a Nice place, quiet and intimate. Very clean. The People are very friendly and helpful.
Good balance between quality and price. Position of the riad is not really in the center, about 15 mins from the Médina.
From the outside, you would not guess what lies within as is the case with traditional raids. The street itself is not appealing. Inside, there is a charming pool, garden and dining room and three separate bedroom areas. Our room was certainly quiet and located away from the main dining area. I would recommended using the hamman, book ahead if you can. The couples package is the best value. Re the location, yes it is a bit of a walk to the centre, but easily doable.
