Very good location and great welcome by owner
The owner was very welcoming and the location of the Riad is very central, close to the main sightseeing spots. The only drawback is that there is no Air Conditioning whereas on the site it mentions that there is.

Right in the Medina, yet very quiet at night. Next to the fishing port, with plenty to see. Rooftop terrace for breakfast in the sun with views of the ocean. Beautiful place.

Great value and location in the heart of Essaouira.
Al Zahia was all we expected and more for a reasonable price. Our family room had enough space for parents and two kids, and the lounge downstairs was comfortable. The wifi in the hotel worked well, but Internet service in the city was spotty. Breakfast on the rooftop terrace was very good each morning. (It might be too much to ask a small riad, but I also love it when hotels have early morning coffee and tea service in their lobby.) I would definitely recommend Al Zahia to friends going to Essaouira.
