We stayed at the Riad el Zohar in June. We have been to Marrakech many times and stayed in other riads, including one much more expensive one, but this is the riad we will come back to. It is the genuine article that has been lovingly conserved. Allan, who was away in UK recovering from an operation, could not have...

What a fantastic find. This place is truly stunning: fantastic hosts, great evening meal on our arrival, fantastic breakfasts. Indeed from the moment we were met at the airport to the time we were dropped off to come home we could not have asked for anything more. Perfectly located and an oasis of calm and tranquility and a truly wonderful...

We arranged a very last minute stay in Marrakech, and after much deliberation chose to stay the Riad El Zohar. With only a couple of days notice, Alan arranged for us to be met at the airport late at night and smoothly taken to the Riad. I would recommend being collected simply because the riad wouldn't have been easy to...

Having read the previous positive reviews we absolutely agree that this is the place to be if you want to experience true Riad style with the service of a 5* hotel. We can't disagree enough with the one bad review that was put on here previously and can't believe that one review has caused the rating to drop so low...

A friend was involved in a fiasco with the French air strike where a complete mess got more complicated by confusing the similar names of riads. Allan from El Zohar became involved in all this as an accidental middle man. He and his wife went to the most incredible amount of trouble - to the extent of visiting other riads...

Beautiful, spotless, quiet riad - yet only moments from the hustle and bustle.Lovely to come back in the afternoon and laze on the sun deck, drink tea; children enjoyed the pool despite the chilly temperature. Delicious breakfast and very accommodating staff. Would definitely return.

The Riad is beautifully restored and perfectly situated for the Souks, Main Square and visiting gardens, palaces etc. The staff were a delight with beaming smiles whatever was asked of them. The pool was cool but very welcome after hours sightseeing. This is a small hotel that offers everything a 5* can with a much friendlier welcome. We had dinner...

Just had a delightful stay at this beautiful riad which is more of a luxurious home than a hotel, a peaceful retreat after the bustle of the town. It has been tastefully restored and decorated we were made most welcome by the management and staff all of whom were warm and friendly making us feel at home from the moment...
