De gordijnen houden licht onvoldoende buiten, en de geluidsisolatie is ook niet goed. De krijsende meeuwen buiten waren iets te duidelijk hoorbaar.
Vriendelijke ontvangst, goede ligging nabij het strand (20 min te voet naar de stad). Handige locatie als je met de auto bent. Mooi ingericht hotel. Goed ontbijt en ook vrij goed avondeten, al hadden we misschien nog iets meer verwacht door de lovende recensies over het restaurant.

The pool was lovely and clean and sheltered from winds.

Very pleasant and very helpful owners. Food in the grill Zahra is amazing and relatively cheap for what you get (eg lobster). Close by to the beach and surf spots. Short afternoon walk to the medina. Clean rooms and facilities.

Building site is pretty overpowering... Think they might need to build a higher wall!
Hosts were outstanding, nothing too much trouble and always ready with information and a friendly smile.

Construction going on next door - this may obscure sea view when finished.
Good location near beach, nice food.

My bed was super hard. I woke up with neckache
Staff were lovely and helpful. Loved the swimming pool. It was a reasonable price

The wifi isn't great in rooms
Xavier and family were really helpful, arranging trips out, horse riding, and surf lessons. The food was great and good value. I left some jewellery in our room and was called immediately to arrange safe return. Wonderful service, we will definitely be back!

Great location, super friendly staff, felt like a home away from home. Will definitely stay again!

The owners and the staff are all very friendly and helpful. The riad is lovely and clean, smells great and made us feel very comfortable. I wish our flight back home had been later in the day so we could have stayed one more night instead of going back to Marrakech for a night. The walk along the beach to the Medina is great too. I'd love to go there again when the temperatures are higher so I could enjoy the beautiful pool!

The restaurant was fab. Heater in the room was a thougtful touch at yhis time of year and very appreciated. The owner and his wife make you very welcome and the staff in bar and restaurant go out of their way.

You will get what you have expected for a budgetable, comfortable, guest oriented, home alike accomodation. During our stay we came across to so many gestures that we felt as if we were in our friend's house. I haven't been accompanied to a dining room with greetings even in 5* hotels in every occasion. I hope this may give you the idea of fine management that they offer to their customers/guests (usually they call it as "our families"). From top to bottom to all the stuff we are sending our best wishes and thanks for the invaluable attitude to ourselves during our stay. Don't miss it, do consider to reserve for a stay if you are planing to visit Essasouria/Morocco.

Great place, beautiful view and excellent service. Owners are great welcoming guests. Speak all languages and make all the efforts for your stay to be as much pleasant as possible. Good restaurant with a very nice bar! Excellent breakfast! A must, specially for people wanting to enjoy the relaxing atmosphere of Essaouira.

Unfortunately there were building works going on next door. It didn't really disturb us but was noticeable during the day (obviously this is not the Riad's fault & they had forewarned us)
Could not fault the place. Spent a week over christmas in the Riad. Staff were very welcoming, room was lovely, atmosphere very relaxed and friendly & the food was really tasty. Would highly recommend.

Breakfast was plentiful although a little plain compared to some of the more interesting things we had elsewhere.
Friendly and helpful staff. Well priced in a good location for the beach. Bit of a walk into the medina but it is a pleasant stroll along the waterfront. Nice food available in the on site restaurant at a reasonable price.

We had a marvelous visit.

Beautiful Riad, very helpful hosts, one block from the beach!
November 13, 2014
Curtains are a little thin so street lighting did shine into the bedroom!
We had an excellent stay here, staff and owner are so welcoming and friendly! Lovely breakfast and great pool area! 20 min walk into town along beautiful beach! We definitely plan on coming back!

Great location and with a brilliant pool (although its by the sea, the pool was definitely where to sunbath during our visit due to the wind). Staff were massively helpful, and rooms really nice. Some people may find the 20 minute walk into the Medina a slight drag, but you walk along the new boardwalk - and get some cracking sunsets.

We really liked this town and Riad Zahra. All the staff was great and helpful, the room was nice and clean. There was good wifi in the big entrance room, and really good food in the restaurang. The only thing i can think about that could be better is a bit warmer pool =)

Close to the beach. Beautifull place
November 2, 2014
We stayed at 2 different rooms and from one we think the matras needs replacement. The wifi signal was not very strong outside the lobby, but strong enough for checking mail & apps.
the riad is beautiful and has a really Nice atmosphere. The owners and their son (who runs the very good restaurant up stairs) are so sweet & helpful. We stayed for 3 nights and it felt like coming home after a day at the medina, or we would choose to just relax at the great pool. All staff is great, so is the food and their hospitality. We would definitely come back! It's a 15 min boulevard walk to the medina, or a 3 min taxi drive, so perfectly situated.

The family running these apartments along with the staff were all amaxing. They went out of their way to be helpful. We are in the two restaurants ( yes they have two restaurants!) and the food was delicious. Would liked to have stayed longer but it was fully booked. Thanks for a lovely stay
