We liked the fact that this hotel was far enough away from the medina to be quiet and so close to the beach that we had some lovely walks there but what made it really special was the people.

Our stay in Riad Zahra was truly wonderful. Clean spacious rooms, delicious breakfast and friendly staff and owners. The fish restaurant at the top of the hotel with views across the beach was immense and the food amazing.

We stayed at Riad Zara for 4 nights - it is close to the beach which is great and about 20/25 Min walk into town but taxis only cost 20 dirhams - but ....only take 3 passengers!! We enjoyed the walk.
