Best decision I made all year!
Our stay at the Riad el Zohar was fantastic. The location is perfect to immerse yourself in the heart of the Medina. The Riad was beautiful inside and had a lovely comfortable and home-like feel and I simply cannot say enough about the staff and owners. We were looked after in such a kind way, given great advice when we wanted suggestions and without a doubt, our stay in Marrakech was better for having stayed at Riad El Zohar.

8/10 Very good

First off, the staff and owner at this property were the best I have encountered anywhere. They instantly made us feel comfortable and at home in Marrakech. Also, the Riad itself is beautiful, the food is delicious, and the location is unbelievable. My only issue was that the air conditioning in our room did not work and so it was quite hot at night, which prevented me from sleeping well. It did cool down after a few hours once we opened the windows. However the room itself was very nice. If this is your first time in Marrakech I would definitely recommend this property.

If you are planning on visiting Marrakech, Riad El Zohar is a superb choice and you should book without delay. The property itself is picturesque, located in an atmospheric neighbourhood, and is maintained to an impeccable standard. We stayed for four nights in mid May and enjoyed the superb hospitality of Allan and his amazing team, with mint tea and a beautiful dinner on arrival and delicious fresh breakfasts each day. Everyone at Riad El Zohar is incredibly friendly and nothing was too much trouble; Allan's deep knowledge and advice on what to do and where to go and help with arranging guides was invaluable. Riad El Zohar is 5 stars plus!

We booked El Zohar randomly on Expedia and it exceeded all expectations! Allan & team at El Zohar extended the greatest hospitality. Allan reached out to arrange car service to/from the airport in Marrakech. The riad is located in the medina which is a labyrinth of passageways not well known by Google Maps. A porter was waiting with a wagon to take our luggage and escort us through the narrow streets to the riad. Don't waste time researching the many tours/guides online. Allan & team have a set of recommended tours and guides that they are happy to arrange for you. The staff were extremely helpful with restaurants and making reservations. The riad has compiled a guest book in each room that is worth reading upon your arrival with plenty of information you should know. If you get a chance to catch tea with the owner, don't pass it up! Allan provided great insights on the city with recommendations on what to prioritize and what to avoid. The riad's accommodations are excellent. You will be staying in a 300 yr old Moroccan home with a magnificent courtyard, pool, and rooftop deck for evening tea or lounging in a sunbed during the day. The riad experience is similar to a bed and breakfast where you are treated to breakfast each morning, and have the option of ordering dinner if you choose. The entire staff treat you as if you are part of the family and you will, in turn, want to treat them the same. Stop your search and book your stay in Marrakech at the Riad El Zohar now!

Alan made us feel so welcome. We have never had such amazing service and nothing was too much for Alan and his staff. Would highly recommend this fantastic Ryad and would definitely come back again.

Staying at this beautiful riad was complete and utter bliss. I want to say a huge thank you to the lovely Allan who made our stay incredibly special. It was more than we expected, and the riad itself was absolutely gorgeous. The location was also perfect. Having our breakfast on the roof terrace in the sun each morning was a real dream, as well as relaxing by the fire each night for a nightcap after an evening meal out - what a treat. An enormous thanks to Allan and his amazing team at the riad, for their kind, generous selves, hospitality and all round loveliness. We will no doubt be back again, hopefully very soon.

The staff was most helpful and the food good. The rug between the beds was unnecessary and a slip hazard.
