We spent 3 nights at the Riad Zahara in September after a manic 5 nights in Marrakech and I suspect it won't be long until we're back. We arrived off the Supratours bus (highly recommended!) and as we had rucksacks, decided not to get a taxi but instead walk along the waterfront. From the centre of town (next to the... More

A lovely quiet Riad close to the beach but within a 25 minute leisurely stroll along the attractive promenade to the Medina. The location could not have been better for us as we were kitesurfing and this riad is very close to a couple of hire places (we were with Explora). The owners and their son were kind and helpful,...

After looking up restaurants on Trip Advisor while in Essaoiura, we saw the Riad Zahra and made the short walk from our hotel along the beachfront. Upon arriving, we were greeted and told they have two restaurants. We opted for the fish restaurant, so were taken up to the top floor. A lovely restaurant overlooking the pool below (complete with... More

We love this little family owned hotel so much we go back regularly. Delighfully designed and furnished the downstairs dining rooms can be intimate or more open. The top storey fish and meat grill restaurant is splendid with gorgeous views over the sea. Food in both excellent and service can't be faulted. You relax by the swimming pool or on... More

We really enjoyed our stay since its location is outside the noisy center of Essaouira, and only 3 mins away from the beach! We loved the big pool with its three little friendly turtles!

This is a lovely Riad about 15 minutes sea front walk from the Medina. The hosts are very nice and friendly people and the service is great. It has two restaurants with very good food and breakfast is lovely, the best I had during my Moroccan tour. I would definitely recommend it to family and friends.
