Our family of four has just completed a fabulous 10 nights at Riad Zahra. With two small children we wanted somewhere quiet, with a pool, where we could choose to spend the whole day relaxing if we wanted. The location is great - just 2 minutes onto the best beachside cafes, where you can do all the watersports you like,... More

Hi guys! I was travelling alone to Essaouira mainly for surfing. Riad Zahra Hotel I settled in was, I think, one of the best hotels I've ever lived in, not form the point of luxury accessories in rooms, but from the point of unforgettable atmosphere which you will for sure enjoy for the whole stay, and kind, happy locals working...

Loved this place! We ate here most nights as we were too lazy to walk down to the medina, the food portions were huge and they had the best spaghetti Bolognese ever! The staff were very friendly, and helped us organise horse riding, boat trip and general stuff. It is not even a two minute walk from the beach. Will... More

You will get what you have expected for a budgetable, comfortable, guest oriented, home alike accomodation. During our stay we came across to so many gestures that we felt as if we were in our friend's house. I haven't been accompanied to a dining room with greetings even in 5* hotels in every occasion. I hope this may give you... More

Love this place, people, the staff everything is amazing. Some people have complained about breakfast which I fail to comprehend, if you want a 6star breakfast buffet then it's probably a good idea that you attend a 6star hotel and pay that price. Breakfast is sweet, one pancake, two bits of cake, some bread with the usual toppings and some... More

Loved this Riad and the hosts are very helpful. The room was nice and comfortable bed. Received an email after booking about the building site next door....we still decided to stay here and Im glad we did because apart from a bit of noise in the daytime around the pool the building site didn't bother us.

We stayed here after a bad night in an hotel in the old part of town. Well worth the money, a chance to sunbathe and swim without being sandblasted and annoyed by the beach peddlers. The lobby makes a great impression and the rooms are also impressive. Room had a view of a building site (can't be helped in some... More

We stayed here for almost a week. After the chaos of Marrakech, it was very nice to relax here for a while. The owners are very friendly and made us feel at home. The pool is big and clean, the breakfast and Restaurant was perfect!

Had a very pleasant two night stay at Riad Zahra in January, low season. The first thing we noticed were how welcoming and helpful the staff were. The restaurant is very good and offers good value, with a different special each evening. We ate here both evenings. Breakfast was fine, nothing special but definitely satisfactory. Wifi was free, fast and... More

Riad Zahra was our first experience staying in a riad. It was beautifully restored and the host was welcoming and very friendly. Unfortunately ours was only a one night stay so we had little time to enjoy the amenities. We arrived late in the afternoon and checked out early in the next day. The breakfast room was beautiful and the... More
