Allan and Malika and their fantastic staff could not have been more welcoming during our short stay at Riad El Zohar in mid-November. We were at first amazed at the fact that the photographs of the interior of the Riad, whilst very nice, did not do justice to the reality, which needs to be seen to be believed.
We really would advise eating an evening meal at least once in the Riad since the freshly cooked food was absolutely wonderful. In addition to the very comfortable accommodation, spacious sun terrace (not to mention the best shower I have ever used!) and cosy salon complete with roaring open fire, we would literally have been lost in Marrakech without Allan's helpful introductory tour and signposting-pointers to guide us back to the Riad after a busy day in the souks.
We stayed in other locations after this and I can honestly say that the breakfast in El Zohar topped them all, in particular the coffee, the pomegranate fruit cocktails and the vanilla drinking yoghurt.
We would whole-heartedly recommend this Riad to any would-be visitors to Marrakech.
