Great hotel, unless you need air conditioning
Good location. Staff was generally very good and helpful. Pool was good and breakfast plentiful and also very good. Unfortunately they do not have air conditioning which really is desirable in this climate. I recommend this hotel very much, unless you want air conditioning.

Wonderful Riad a block from the beach!
Riad Zahra was an amazing place! Wonderfully run hotel near the beach. The owners were incredibly friendly and helpful. Plus it has two of the best restaurants in Essaouira!

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.

Friendly family run Riad
The French family that run this riad could not be more helpful. Well positioned near the beach and an easy flat walk to the medina. Food was varied and good value. We think the hot water was desalinated, as it tasted very salty, and left our skin feeling a little sticky. Unfortunately a new building on one side of the beautifully kept pool meant it lost the sun at about 2pm when we were there late Oct/ early Nov. However we would have no hesitation in recommending Riad Zahra in Essaouira.
