We stayed for 7 nights at the Zara and would go back again with no hesitation When we arrived at the airport, our personal transfer, organised beforehand by Monique, was there to take us in comfort to the Riad. Monique had organised a Moroccan lunch and refreshment on our arrival and we felt relaxed straight away. The Riad itself is... More

We stayed at Riad Zara for 4 nights. Our interaction with Monique began while we were in the US. What a host! Monique arranged for a driver to and from the airport, a guided tour of the Medina, a full day guided tour to Telouet and beyond. The Riad is lovely and Monique's assistant, Hassan, is a wonderful host (and... More

My husband, three year old daughter and I stayed here for three nights. My only regret was that we did not stay longer. Monique was not there during our stay but Hassan was and he was excellent. He made every effort to ensure that our stay was comfortable and that our needs were met. My daughter loved him and in... More

If you want to experience the real Morocco from a clean, calm and comfortable basis - this place is excellent. It's situated a few minutes away from the souks. Navigating the busy little streets and alley ways at night takes practise but Monique, the riad's owner, is always at hand and happy to help. An amazing French hostess who tells... More

I had such a great time at Riad Zara!! Monique organised my transport from the airport to the riad and the driver was very nice and professional. Complimentary Mint tea on arrival was so welcoming! Followed by a whole heap of practical information for my time in Marrakech/Morocco. Riad Zara is so pretty, well decorated by Monique! It felt like... More

I've been coming back to Riad Zara and Monique, the host, for 10 years now, and for a reason. This place is soothing for my soul. The colors, materials and decorations is genuinely Morocco. Plain pretty. Zara is located in Quartier Ailen in the medina, here you'll find the charming busy tiny street moroccan daily life. And the friendly hearted... More

I can't really recommend this place enough. It is not the type of place for people who like to feel as though they are in a protected, secluded area for the privileged. It is for those willing to experience the truth of an area and how its people live whilst still offering a wonderful level of comfort. The breakfasts at... More

We had a nice time in Zarka. Once that you are in Marrakech (Old City), you need to know that things are difficult to be found. Zarka´s staff made our trip much easier, helping us with all information that we need to know about the Old City. They received us with a delicious mint tea!!! Our room was perfect and... More

We spent with the family (2 adults 2 kids) a great time here in April 2014. Fatima cooks extraordinarily good food! The rooms are really charming with a nice bathroom. The location of the Riad is quite convenient too, 10 min walking from the main square. And, and don't forget to stop by the bakery close to the Riad in... More

We only stayed in marrakech for a few nights but had the most amazing stay in Riad Zara. The building was beautiful with a really friendly atmosphere and surprisingly calm even though it's so close to the old town centre. The best part of amour stay though has to be the owner, Monique. She was so welcoming and went above... More
