Just returned from a stunning 4 day break in Marrakech. Riad El Zohar is immersed in right in the centre of the vibrant and bustling souk in the heart of the old town of Marrakech, most of which can be seen from a sun-bed on the beautiful roof terrace! None of the traditional Moroccan style or culture is sacrificed by the comfort and luxury provided in the Riad, my family and I were lucky enough to experience the best of both worlds. It really is a wonderfully decorated, and yet spacious and relaxing place to stay, and could not be better located to explore such a diverse and exciting city. The staff were kind, welcoming and extremely helpful, and it felt as though we spent the entire time amongst friends. Upon our arrival we were given a tour of the old town with expert knowledge and guidance by Allan, which set us up perfectly to explore for the rest of our stay. We really enjoyed a visit to the local bbq stalls in the evening, which are fantastic value for money, and I would recommend number 1 in particular for seafood, however I found that the chips in number 81 are the best! Also, I had anticipated being hassled whilst walking around the city, but this was not the case. Shop owners etc do try to get your attention, but it is always in an honest, open and friendly way and at no point did I feel harassed or remotely unsafe. I honestly couldn't recommend Riad El Zohar or even a trip to Marrakech enough! Its a must visit destination, an absolutely stunning place to visit for the scenery, the culture and the warm weather was very nice as well! I will definitely be returning, and greatly look forward to doing so!
