Riad Al Zahia, Essaouira
Very Good8.0
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.

Riad Al Zahia, Essaouira
A beautiful riad with a pretty rooftop terrace. The room was cosy & the bed was heaven. The mattress was so soft & good. The best bes i had in my stay in Morocco thus far. The breakfast spread was good & delicous too. The staircase though was like a mountain climb especially with heavy luggages. But it was only a minute of pain.

Riad Al Zahia, Essaouira
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.
