Just came back from here last week and let me tell you STAY AWAY! I am a seasoned traveler and out of every riad I stayed in Morocco and every hotel I've ever stayed in, this was by far the WORST. Moha, the guy who manages this riad on behalf of someone else is a fraudulent,inconsiderate man (I'll soon tell... More

Riad Elixir was the perfect place to start off our Morocco adventure. The roof top terrace is great for relaxing in the sun, playing chess and drinking mint tea - a true haven of the northern part of the Medina. Sahara made us great traditional moroccan food to be enjoyed in the cozy courtyard, easily fixing veggie-options upon request. Moha,... More

Had such a great time staying at Riad Elixir, Moha is a brilliant host. After the first night my friend and I were the only people staying in the Riad so he let us change rooms from the original double we had booked to one that was slightly bigger with two seperate beds. He gave us a really helpful map... More

We stayed at the Riad at the end of April this year. Moha was extremely welcoming and made sure we felt at home. From the English magazines outside our room to sourcing the odd bottle of wine for us, he really went out of his way to make our time in Marrakech special. One of the best meals we had... More

I loved Riad Elixir! I was welcomed at the airport by a driver who took me to the riad and met Moha who looked after me during my 2 night stay. I was the only one staying there and had a lovely bedroom on the ground floor which was good size. The location was great inside the old city however... More

On a recent trip to Morocco, I stayed in riad elixir for three nights with a small group of friends. If you want a taste of real Morocco and a wonderful atmosphere I highly recommend this riad. Honestly, since the first moment we entered the riad we felt like we were at home. I wish we could have spent more... More

My partner and I stayed here for 6 nights on our recent 2 week holiday to Morocco. We were the only ones in the Riad for the majority of the stay and I have to say that Moha is the loveliest host! We were met at the station by their driver Majid and as soon as we got to the... More

If you want to be away from the hustle and bustle of the souks and and Jeema El Fna then Riad Elixer is a wonderful choice. You get to explore and see more of life in the Medina as you have fun winding your way back after a hard days bargaining for that illustrious teapot and you can take some... More

I stayed in this riad for 7 nights. The ambience and decor is very authentic. Rooms are comfortable,very clean and quiet. The manager Moha is incredible. He was so helpful with my itinerary and took me to some wonderful places. It was like having a great Moroccan friend. It is worth driving to Essaouira and over the Atlas Mountains if... More
