Good3.0 / 5
Good location and public spaces, uncomfortable bed
Cons: Rooms: super thin walls, uncomfortable beds, no amenities like safe, tea/coffee service, and the bathroom supplies are meager. Also the window coverings are thin and the room never gets dark. Finally, our tv did not work until I asked at the front desk and someone came to fix it. When I complained about the noise (we could hear noise from the lobby and people showering and using the toilet above and next to us), the female owner told me my hearing was "sensitive." Pros: good location near the beach and the board walk, a 15 minute walk to the medina. Also, the lobby is pretty, the male owner and young woman who works the desk are friendly and helpful, and the seafood restaurant on the top floor has great views and tasty food and good service. Good breakfast--fresh fruit options and pots of hot strong coffee lots of bread options They also have a nice pool, but it isn't heated. There are a few turtles who live in the pool area, which was fun.

Basic comfort but old and dated look
Comfortable and spacious room with some interesting artwork, however, the hotel itself is painfully dated and worn-out and could use some remodeling and fixing-up. WIFI was not working in the room. The Free Shuttle to CDG is the main reason to stay there.

Book it if you like hostels!
if you like staying at a hostel-like hotel, then this is the place for you. The room was dark, no view - well, there was a view of a backyard shed. This room should be used for storage, not for a tourist room. They claimed the place was full, I guess someone had to end up with this room, bad luck of the draw. But, I am beginning to wonder whether hotels have 'special' rooms set aside for the discounted online booking services such as Hotels.com's secret prices. Soap (toileteries) were sparse, old furniture that felt as though it was about to fall apart, bed very uncomfortable, dark hallways and room, poor wifi connection. It has no beach or water view since there is now a new building blocking that view, but then I did mention that the room we had was on the ground floor overlooking a shed area that stored surf boards.

A wonderful oasis!
We had a fantastic stay in Riad Zahra. We initially booked for one night but ended up staying for three! The pool was lovely and the staff were very attentive. We ate in the hotel restaurant and the food was amazing.

Excellent4.0 / 5
Lovely people, nice food in downstairs restaurant, reasonably priced. Pool is nice, three pet terrapins and two tortoises add a nice touch. Service was attentive and pleasant. Bedroom was a good size, big shower and hot water at all times. We were very comfortable. Bedroom furnishings were pretty dour, and the sea view is spoilt by building works
