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. It was too cold... More

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

Walk 20 mintes and your in the old fish harbour and medina. The bedroom in the Riad was great, the breakfast was excellent,... More

My partner and myself had a great stay at the Riad Zahra. The location is perfect. Walkable but far enough away from the medina but close to the ocean and bars and restaurants. We were able to wake up and see the ocean from our room. The room was spacious, clean and nicely decorated. However, what really made the place... More

We weren't expecting to be in Essaouira at all but got diverted from our desert trip due to flooding! So this was a last minute booking by our local operator Atlas Trek Shop and we were extremely happy with their choice. Zahra is a lovely riad with huge rooms, beautiful furnishings and a courtyard/central staircase that would put many 5... More
