I stayed in Marrakesh for 3 nights with my parents (my father is 79) and my daughter (who is 10), so we had a diverse slate of needs and tastes - but the Riad Elizabeth suited all of them and we enjoyed not only our stay but the delicious, plentiful, home-cooked food.
After I booked the hotel, the owner John emailed me directly and we worked out all our plans for the three days we had in Marrakesh, including a tour guide for a day in Marrakesh at the medina and other sites, & a day trip to the mountains. He also helped me rent a car for our drive out to Essaouira. John was responsive, flexible, and honest. When we arrived and met him in person, he was warm and welcoming, so we felt like we were staying with friends rather than in a hotel. (Elizabeth, the hotel's namesake and his wife, was out of town when we were there.)
We visited in February, so it was quite chilly, but we spent a little bit of time on the roof, lounging. I imagine when it's warmer that would be a favorite place to hang out.
Usually when we travel, we eat breakfast in the hotel and dinner out-&-about, but in Marrakesh we not only loved the breakfasts, but also ended up having 3 of 4 dinners at the Riad because the food was delicious.
While we were there, the other rooms were held by couples on romantic holidays, and one even got engaged on Valentine's Day - so although I was there on a family vacation, I can imagine the hotel would be lovely for romance as well as family.
I highly recommend the Riad Elizabeth.
