lovely house and very friendly owners
Well located for kitesurfing!
The staff were extremely friendly, and we went with our 20 month old child and couldn't have picked a better place for that. Very child friendly. Also very relaxed atmosphere, especially in the evening when enjoying a nice meal and lovely Moroccan wine.
These are very minor points compared with the overal excellence. Breakfast was good but a bit carb based, and the pool was colder than ideal.
Quiet and nice pool (with turtles!)
A very nice Riad with a beautifully laid out reception area. Central staircase, plants, paintings etc. Very large rooms that were clean & well kept. The pool was a decent size & all the more interesting because of the resident two turtles & eight or so tortoises that patrolled the surrounding area. Adequate breakfasts (continental) although slightly heavy on the bread side! The riad is about a 15-20 minute stroll along the sea front to the medina. Very pleasant as this allows your dinner to settle on the return plus you have a quiet night. A lovely place to stay!
The water supply to the shower was patchy in late afternoon but having said that new water tanks were installed while we were there. The approach road/alley to the Riad leaves something to be desired but then again that's Morocco for you!
very good overall. swimming pool with turtles, nice breakfast and dinner with a bar. very close to sea
We found the staff and owners of this Riad to be most helpfull, friendly and welcoming. The facillities were good and the location close to the beach and within easy walk of the old town excellent. This small family run hotel offers a calm and relaxing experience.
The only area of comment would be we found the beds to be "firmer" as in hard, when compared with those found in European hotels, but probably this reflects the very "local" nature of the hotel.
Stayed in Riad Zahra for a week last week! Couldnt fault this place at all! Was amazing! Welcomed by friedndly staff members, who were extremely helpful and also spoke good english! Riad was at the end of the beach, about a 20 minute walk from the medina, which we found very nice in the evening to walk off diner and a nice break from being in the busy medina! Room was very comfy, breakfast in the morning was good, continental - bread, pain au chocolate, fresh orange and coffee!! Swimming pool was much appreciated a nice break from the midday sun! Would definitely stay here again and would recommend it to anyone thinking of visiting!!
