Never having been to Morocco before, we were not sure what to expect but we were more than pleasantly surprised by the wonderful welcome we received on arrival, the friendliness of the family ,Xavier, his wife and son, and the ambiance of the Riad. There are two restaurants both of which serve superb food. The staff were all so friendly... More

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
