Accommodation booked by Majestic Morocco Tours - what a great choice by Linda and Karim, who recommended and organised everything. Just a short sunshine break, so tended to stay chilling out by the pool in the day, rather than go on any other trips. The breakfast was great and the food in the riad was so good that we ate...

My parents, my brothers and I have just come back from an amazing stay at Riad Zahra. We arrived at the hotel and were promptly checked in and shown to our rooms. All the staff were extremely helpful and always brightened up the atmosphere of the Riad. The swimming pool was lovely amd secluded- the turtles were an added bonus!... More

Really lovely stay here. The hosts and room were lovely. Complimentary breakfast in the morning was delicious. The poolside area is really nice and you can spot some tortoises by the side! Good value for the rooms and stay.

We have just returned from a wonderful stay at Riad Zahra. Everything was faultless - fantastic food, enjoyed at both their restaurants, a beautiful setting with every home comfort you could ask for.

This Riad is run by a brilliant couple (from Barcelona and Midi-Pyrenees) who really, really care about the well-being of their guests. They go that extra-mile to get to know you and make sure you have no issues with the room, food etc. Some of the services provided: - Free wifi in the main atrium/lobby - very strong and very...

We stayed at this charming riad for 3 nights and enjoyed the stay very much. The building has a beautiful interior and the hosts are always welcoming, smiling and ready to help and answering any questions we had. The breakfast is great and there's a big clean pool behind the building.

We stayed here for 10 nights, in a family room for myself, my husband and our 9 year old son. Our son called it a "Hometel" because it felt like being at home. The ambiance and decore was colourful, traditionally Moroccan yet calming. The room (no 20) was spacious and light with a double bed and two singles, one of... More

This was our second visit to Riad Zahra. We stayed there two years ago on our honeymoon. This time we came with our one year old daughter. Our memories were of a pleasant hotel where we could relax and stroll into town if needed. We remembered that the service was good. We remembered wrongly. The service is excellent. On arrival...

We stayed here for 6 days and had such a wonderful time. The owners and staff were absolutely fantastic - so friendly and willing to help with everything. The Riad is beautiful; the room very comfortable and cool; the pool clean and relaxing; and the restaurant is incredible. Breakfast was a simple but tasty selection of breads, cake and crepes...
