The Riad El Zohar was an excellent place to stay so central. This was my first visit to Morrakech and it was made so much easier as the proprietors of the Riad were happy to impart all their knowledge of the area. Such a warm and friendly Riad, the staff were always on hand day or night to give friendly advice and help us to find our way around. I was taken to the spice shop by the owner so that I could by spices that were both excellent quality and value for money, including saffron at an exceedingly good price.
The Riad El Zohar has 5 rooms, we stayed in the Moulouya; the room was very comfortable for two people, with en-suite. Both of which were to a very high standard of cleanliness. There was plenty of room and storage and on the odd night when my partner snored too loud and took up the whole bed, there was a little extra place for me to put my head down for a couple of hours.
The Riad had was a very relaxed atmosphere with the proprietors checking in regularly with us making sure we were having a good time and able to do what we wanted to do. They were able to give advice on the best places to view and eat and also where we should be a little more vigilant.
The terrace in the Riad was a great place to catch the sun or to have afternoon tea under the shade. Complementary Tea and coffee was available on demand and was always served by cheery friendly staff. The evenings in the lounge with a blazing fire were just one of my favourite memories of the Riad. I would recommend this place for couples, families, travelling friends or even if you are on your own they have a room to suit all traveller and a warm friendly welcome for all.
