    Fabulous

    Location is very convenient, within walking distance of all the main sights, beach and excellent restaurants (M'Riste Jouhar right next door & Sirocco around the corner to name but two great restaurants). The rooftop terrace with seaviews is a lovely spot for breakfast or relaxation.

    Good

    Location within the Medina excellent, close to the beach and restaurants.

    Rooms are very noisy, yet with no external windows. The Yasmina room wasn't nice so we switched although had to pay for it so it turned out quite expensive.

    It was an authentic ryad

    There was no air conditioner/fan or air cooler at the hotel. Luckily want too hot when we went. The room we booked 'yasmina' was v basic and no v clean. We asked for room change n were moved to hanani which was alot better. I dot think we could e stayed at 'yasmina' as we usually used to staying in atleast 4 star hotels.

    Fabulous

    The hotel had a great location and was very nice in terms of decor. Great roof terrace with lots of space, sunbeds, chairs, etc. Staff were very good and breakfast was tasty. Free wi-fi was good too.

    It was a tad noisy with a central atrium, and a little stuffy with no windows.

    Exceptional

    Excellent location, beautifully decorated, spacious twin room, light and very friendly service. Thanks for a great stay. Would highly recommend to anyone wanting a relaxing break in Essauira to stay at Riad Al Zahia. Also, a great restaurant with belly dancing (expensive but worth it) was Mamouche.

    Fabulous

    Beautiful roof top terrace with nice sun beds and lounge sets. Good location in the medina of Essaouira. Good fresh breakfast served at your tabel on the roof top or in the cosey lounge. The whole riad is beautiful and well-maintained. All rooms are different and have names instead of numbers.

    Though friendly, the European management gives you a less warm and friendly welcome compared to some other Moroccan managed hotels (no mint tea as a welcome) The whole atmosphere was less personal and less friendly compared to the other hotels we visited. (Not a reason not to go there, but just less...)
