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

From the moment we entered the door it felt good at Riad Zahra. The owners are very friendly and hospitable. The villa is beautiful, in a quit place. Cross the street and you're on the great beach. 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

I really enjoyed my stay in Riad Zahra Mogador. The riad is a short 20-30 minute walk from the medina which we didn't mind walking since the weather was so nice and you could walk along the beach. There are turtles in the pool! Yes, turtles. The pool itself is very calm and relaxing with lots of greenery. The service... More
