Close to the beach, Riad Zahra proposes simplicity and comfort only 15 minutes walk from the Medina. Located in the residential district, the Zahra offers calm, relaxation and a peaceful stay.

The civility of the staff, bordering on delightful at times. if you smile they smile but if you dont they dont, so smile. The ladies who run the hotel are sweet and pleasant, and the guys, there were 2 main protagonists at the time, couldnt do enough, but this was at the end of the season, so there was not much for them to do. It would be teeming in season.
The time of year I went to stay in Essouaria was December 7th not a good time for hotel service it is all over by then. So I was led to believe, naively, that the restaurant would be open. It was opened for me alone, and I was offered food, but it was inedible. But they wanted me to have food. They are very kind people.
The staff are so friendly and helpful. The whole place is spotlessly clean. The food and service are to be highly recommended.
Seagulls watching me have breakfast 2 feet away
Really cheerful and happy staff. A beautiful building in a great location within very close proximity to the sound of the ocean. Good Moroccan breakfast - more than you can eat - unlike some riad's, especially in Marrakech, which serve just a flat bread, a yoghourt and a berber pancake. Have travelled Morocco a lot over many years and would definitely visit again if in Essaouria.
Nothing. All great. The only thing some visitors might comment on is that the Wi-fi is a tiny bit slow at times but hey - get a life - you're on holiday!
There was nothing not to like during our stay. The hotel, the location, staff, and the food were all excellent. We particularly enjoyed the breakfast buffet every morning, all the food was freshly prepared and delicious.
Love the setting, amazing hotel. Great location for the square and harbour. Staff great. Food good, great room.
We paid over €100 per night for a suite and found the room to be of a good size and the bed comfortable.
The shower didn't work properly. Only 1 coat hanger between 2 of us. Asked for more, no you can't have any. Asked for iron, no not today. Breakfast not good. Watched guests clear tables so they could sit down. Food not replenished, no greeting,not offered omelettes.guests only found out if the saw other people eating them. 4 staff stood around. No excuse for dirty tables, empty water jugs, empty coffee pots, no hot water for tea. Breakfast of a very poor quality. Would not return, would not recommended.No safe in room.
We had first a regular room,which was dark and smelly. After 2 nights we could change to the rooftop room with a wonderful sea view. Fatima,the lady at the reception was very helpful and arranged everything we wanted. Sunset is amazing from the roof terrace.
Breakfast could have been better.There was only sweet food and the service not on the top.
Fantastic location. Truly beautiful, and the rooftop patio is spectacular. The beds are good and the rooms are fine, but nothing exceptional. They make up for comfort with character!
"Luxury hotel" is a generous description at best. It is very comfortable, but it is not luxury. Also, getting there was not super difficult but you have to walk through the medina asking for directions, which may not be the best strategy if you are dragging a suitcase.
Receptionist was delightful, likewise her colleague that came to meet us and helped with our expanse of luggage. Great location bordering the medina on the waters edge. close to parking. View from the roof terrace was amazing.
We wished we'd able to stay longer
Large size room and bed Beautiful roof terrace for breakfast with a view over the ocean
Very helpful staff. Very clean and a great room - we were upgraded in order to accommodate our twin room request without extra charge. Perfect location right in the middle of it all. Short walk to and from the bus station. Highly recommended.

Loved it all.
Lovely Riad, we had a beautiful Maisonette suite. The terrace, where breakfast is served, faces the sea and is a wonderful place to relaxe. The staff ist very kind, professional and helpful.
From the pick up by the taxi driver who had waited patiently for over an hour as we were finally permitted entry to Morocco, to the warmest welcoming smile that awaited us at reception in The Palais de Remparts in Essaouira our stay here was wonderful.All the staff were extremely helpful, charming, polite. The hotel is a converted Rhiad with a traditional central courtyard. The rooms all have a balcony that overlooks this, three floors from which the palm trees and a fountain sit among traditional tiled and marble floors. House Buntings roost among the fronds of the palm trees over night. Our room was on the top floor with fantastic sea views, not overlooked so we slept with curtains and window open , the sound of the waves crashing on the rocks below a whispered lullaby.Seperate bathroom, with roof top views across the medina, comfortable king size bed there are two rooms on the top floor both are highly recommended , both having access right outside your door to the roof terrace on which breakfast is served, a huge selection of fruit, breads, pastries, pancakes, cakes, yoghurt etc, etc. eaten whilst taking in the views, sounds and scent of Essaoiura. The hotel is right in the medina, next to the old Portuguese wall, the souks are a five minute walk, restaurants, some selling alcohol are on your doorstep, the port and the windswept beach are a ten minute walk, nothing is too far to walk, as the medina has everything you could want. I recommend this hotel to all, would stay there again if I visited Essaoiura once more
the hotel, the building, roof terraces, views, breakfast on the roof, receptionist, sound of the waves through our open window, the town, the harbour
the restaurant/bar on the roof is a great idea but also in its way removed some freedom from those who may have wished to relax up there without these extras. We were unable to locate the hotel address on google maps or sat nav so had to request the services of a chap at the parking to show us the way.
Staff helpful and location adj Remparts great. Breakfast for everyone.
Unfortunately we had a noisy room level 3 above delivery door and chair shuffle noise from rooftop. Shower pressure low, pillow small and lumpy.
Location and the building and courtyard were super. Bath was brilliant, big and lots of hot water. The little birds that came in over night were lovely and should be used as selling point.
Decor in deluxe room -dated and less attractive than other rooms. Simple cream colour would be better. Electrics on light above dressing table sparked and general buzzing from fuse box could be distracting.Toilet flush runs slightly continuously.
Comfortable rooms, spacious bathroom and brilliant breakfast spread. A full manicure and pedicure for £20 was also good value.
You're told that you can't check in until 4pm but our room still wasn't ready at 4.30pm- not great after a 3 hour trip from Marrakech with a migraine!
Helpful, friendly staff. Great location. Good price. Terrace with amazing views. Comfortable and nicely appointed rooms.
Had some odor issues in one of our rooms. Breakfast buffet needs more pistachio yogurt! And stronger coffee please!
Friendliness of the staff! The location
Breakfast options a little weak but not a big deal
Very warm welcome from the staff and they were incredibly professional throughout the whole stay. This was a bigger riad than others that we'd stayed in, which was nice as felt a bit more private
View of the ocean from the terrace and our room. Staff was very friendly and helpful. Very pretty inside, clean room. Location close to restaurants, shopping, beach, ramparts. Not difficult to find.
Elevator was broken, many steps to our room at the top. Wifi spotty.
Perfect location, inside medina, very easy to get to the riad. Room are spacious and clean. Quite at night, we slept very well. We had breakfast at the terrace everyday with unbeatable ocean view and panorama view of the old medina. Riad stuffs are professional and friendly. They greet us with smile all the time and willing to give assistance whenever we needed. The staffs made our stay like home at this riad. Special thank you to Anouar El Gamani, Mohammed El Majdoulaini. You guys are wonderful. Wish to stay at this riad again!
Everything, especially enjoying a good glass of red wine at the terrace at sundown, the wonderful rooms and the smile of the receptionsit.
Very nice people and peaceful
All is nice the price is a bit high
