Charming and authentic riad with cosy and comfortable rooms, located half way between Jemaa El Fna Square and the modern town.
A delightful and elegant medium-sized Marrakech riad located just inside the medina (old part of the city) in a calm and quiet neighbourhood, with easy car access and secure parking nearby. The house is built around two courtyards with eight double bedrooms (two with fireplaces). The riad has been restored and beautifully decorated by its charming French owner.
The quality of decoration and furnishings confirms ones first impressions of the house, where arches and galleries are mirrored in the waters of the superb small swimming pool which adorns the central courtyard. The second patio, more private, enchants with its quiet atmosphere and the murmur of a beautiful marble fountain.
There are several sitting rooms, some opening on patios, some others more intimate, with a fireplace.
With a charming view of Marrakech rooftops, the terrace welcomes you for a rest either under the pergola, in the solarium or in the traditional hammam and rest room where you may be tempted by the pleasures of a "gommage" or a regenerating massage with argan or essential oils.
Upon request, meals inspired by the flavours and fresh food from the market can be prepared. Breakfast, lunch and candlelit dinners can be served on the terrace, in the sitting rooms or near the pool.

We thought that Les Yeux Bleus was a beautiful, relaxed hotel with very friendly and helpful staff and the service was excellent; being so close to the city centre was a great bonus. Our room was very comfortable and the food was very good. Just a couple of comments on our room: it would be a good idea for the hotel to have a partition between the bedroom / sitting area and the bathroom to afford the person using the bathroom some privacy; we also think that it would be a good idea to have a safe in the room rather than having to use the hotel's safe. The guide that you provided recommending sites to see was very useful, especially as we were only in Marrakesh for a short time.

Despite the evening chaos we found Les Yeux Bleus. Nothing was too much trouble for Brik and the team. His restaurant recommendations spot on and the house wine very drinkable. Accommodation great and very comfortable. The rooftop terraces were a wonderful spot to enjoy the late afternoon sunshine after a day's exploring. Breakfast was plentiful.

Les Yeux Bleus was lovely. The management were very quick to help when I needed a doctor and the doctor did not charge. The tour guide, Noura, was informative, friendly and helpful.

We really enjoyed our stay at Les Yeux Bleu. The service and atmosphere there was lovely. It was decorated beautifully and a lot of care and thought has gone into the Riad. The staff are also great and there is a lovely balance between engaging with the guests and letting you enjoy the surroundings . The breakfast is lovely and served in a very personal and professional way.

Les Yeux Bleus was good - we were very happy with it. It was certainly evocative and everything you would want in a romantic Riad. The less-than-private privy in our room probably would have come as more of a shock to our American sensibilities when we were fresh off the boat 13 years ago but today it is okay and didn't detract. It was all just as you described.

Riad Les Yeux Bleus was a great place to stay. The owners had prepared a lovely meal for us on our arrival in Marrakech and it was just what we needed.
Just one small criticism the Riad was rather cold in the evenings and morning.
From Rachel S who stayed here in September 2012
Such a lovely spot off such a dingy road – a real treat to return there after trips out into the hot city. I’d emailed ahead asking to have dinner at the riad on the first night, and this was our joint favourite meal whilst in the city. The food was superb and it was a good relaxing start to the holiday. The rival for top/favourite spot was Dar Moha which is a great restaurant and an easy walk from the riad. It would have been useful to know that the riad doesn’t accept credit cards – they were happy to take UK currency though.
