We stayed at Riad Zara for 4 nights - it is close to the beach which is great and about 20/25 Min walk into town but taxis only cost 20 dirhams - but ....only take 3 passengers!! We enjoyed the walk.
The owners were lovely and friendly- my daughter was fascinated by the turtles in the pool and the tortoises around the pool- some guests didnt notice the difference,,!!
Our room was a big one for the 4 of us but on the ground floor right next to reception which actually was relatively quiet in the evenings but a bit noisy in the mornings.
We didnt have an evening meal at the hotel - the menu looked nice but pricey.
Breakfast was adequate but service quite poor- even though friendly.We had to ask for spoons every morning / the tea pot for 4 had 1 weak tea bag so we asked for more each morning.
Pancakes were served cold but bread nice and fresh.
Sleeping was challenging with the wild barking dogs, wailing in the early hours and building work in the morning .
But they had a chess set which a,used my son and the pool looked nice albeit rather freezing.
It was a good base and good value.
