An amazing Riad and wonderful experience. Monique and her team were lovely and so helpful. On request, they prepared us our evening dinner, which was one of the best meals we had in Morocco. Monique was lovely and chatty and made us feel so welcome. I actually missed her when we left!! The riad itself is really beautiful, and it is in a much more chilled out area of the medina. Would recommend this riad to anyone visiting Marrakech.
Riad Zara was very comfortable and relaxing. We felt like we had the whole riad to ourselves! Our room was for three people and set up as a double and single bed but Hassan suggested they could turn it in to three singles and while we were out exploring they did this for us. The riad was clean and colourful with a tasty breakfast each morning. The staff were very helpful and it was great to be able to leave our bags there on our last day as our flights were late in the evening.
Monique was a sweet host - full of tips and personality. She was a wonderful introduction to Morocco for our 2 weeks trip. We were full of questions and requests and Monique were always there to help.
The riad was charming, cosy and conveniently located, but just removed enough from the hustle-bustles of it all. It was perfect: It gave us a sense of a home base in Marakesh.
The riad was beautifully renovated and tastefully furnished. Each bedroom was large and provided with its own private bath. The baths were to modern standards and were spotlessly clean. We enjoyed the beautiful combination of colors in the house and furnishings and also enjoyed the berber carpets in the rooms. The WiFi worked well in the common area, but could not be accessed from the room. The host was very responsive and accommodating during our stay. He provided us with a map, and explained how to get to some of the main attractions within the medina. On the day of arrival, we took advantage of the evening meal offer in the riad. We had a lamb and peas Tajine, which was well prepared and delicious. We had a rental car, so it was nice to find a guarded parking area just outside the Bab Aylen gate. From there, it was only about 250m to the Riad Zara.
Nous (une groupe de 10 personnes) avons passé un séjour de rêve de 5 jours au Riad Zara ! Le Riad est situé à 15 minutes à pied de la place Jema El Fna, ce qui permet beaucoup de calme et un accès facile à pied aux plus beaux quartiers de la Medina. Les chambres sont toutes très jolies, très propres et bien décorées. Très jolie terrasse où se reposer ou prendre le petit déjeuner !
Nous avons particulièrement été bien accueillis par Monique et Hassan avec un thé de bienvenue et plusieurs très bons conseils pratiques pour notre séjour. Monique a organisé pour nous une excursion aux pieds de l'Atlas qui nous a beaucoup plu. Elle nous a également préparé un très bon petit diner au Riad le soir où nous étions trop fatigués pour sortir. Bref, il a eu réponse à tout et à su combler tous nos besoins !
I had such a great time at Riad Zara!! Monique organised my transport from the airport to the riad and the driver was very nice and professional. Complimentary Mint tea on arrival was so welcoming! Followed by a whole heap of practical information for my time in Marrakech/Morocco. Riad Zara is so pretty, well decorated by Monique! It felt like an Oasis in Medina! Nice breakfasts served every morning. Also Monique's cooking is amazing for any other meals of the day (3 course dinner!). My room was the one with loft bed, clean, cute and well furnished with ensuite. Nice rooftop area for quiet timeout. I have particular interest in pottery and was lucky and Monique had time to take me to the area of potters/factory. Also, Monique very kindly dropped me off at the airport for my departure. I could not have made a better choice! Riad Zara is definitely recommended! Thanks Monique!
Me and My Girlfriend arrived at the airport to a taxi organised by Monique and waiting for us, very easy 15 minute drive from the airport to the edge of the medina and then a short 2 minute walk to Riad Zara. We arrived before our check in time but we where very happily accommodated. Monique and Hassam where wonderful, very helpful and very friendly, made us feel completely at Home straight away. They where very accommodating to our occasional long sleep in and would always have a wonderful breakfast waiting as soon as we had woken up, whatever time that happened to be, Breakfast was different most days with fresh fruit and yogurt and different Moroccan pastries and breads and home made Berber Peanut Butter and many other spreads, always with a pot of mint tea and freshly squeezed orange juice.
Monique was full of fantastic tips and ideas for how to spend our time and how to get the greatest deals, she was truly our Marrakech guardian angel, we grew to love her very quickly, she speaks english and french very well and has a good tip no matter what you want to go do, be it a couples Hammam or just general Haggling advice. She gave us many Options for day trips also and another family there went to Imlil in the mountains on one of these trips and said it was absolutely fantastic. She has a lovely selection of treats and drinks and wines if you want to stay in and chill at the Riad and can make you dinner if you are feeling very lazy.
The Riad itself was incredible, we loved it so much, just like the pictures, amazing Tiles and patterns everywhere, very traditional and all the original fixtures just refurbished, it all very nicely looked after definitely the most soulful place we had looked at or saw whilst there, the Roof is wonderful, beautiful shady boxes, wonderful place to read, very hot in the sun even at the beginning of january (and when it gets cold Monique bust's out all the heaters makes it very cosy in the friendly common space)
This Riad was the perfect place for us, it is a good 15 minute walk for Jemma Al Fna, the main square, but that was fine for us, we enjoyed being able to get away from the madness in the souks and around, but for some it may be too long. And come back to our wonderfully peaceful Riad where we felt completely at home. We were able to come back whenever we wanted also as Monique gave us our own key so we didn't have to disturb anyone.
We will always look back on this trip with huge amounts of affection and love, it was total magic and a lot of that is due to Monique and the community feeling she has created at Riad Zara. We will definitely be back!
