Well what a wonderful experience we had staying at Riad Elizabeth. Almost as soon as we booked we were contacted by the owners, Jon and Elizabeth, who impressed us with some really helpful tourist information. They were open and honest about any charges on card payments and responded to all our questions within hours which was greatly appreciated. The trips they highlighted were well worth it and a lot cheaper than anywhere we could have found ourselves for the same quality.
Upon arriving we were treated like royalty. Greeted at the door and presented with mint tea and authentic Moroccan biscuits, whilst Samira (the manager) gave us a local map and helped a great deal with finding all the hotspots. We were then upgraded to the Olivia suite which was so beautiful – rose petals and clean beyond perfection. We were warned some other guests thought it was a bit loud but we did not find this to be the case. Marrakesh is noisy in general!
Samira looked after us throughout our stay and did a fantastic job. She checked in with us every morning and before she went home to check if we needed anything arranging on our behalf – whether it be planning trips, booking transport or assisting with questions and queries.
Someone we haven’t seen mentioned in other trip advisor recommendations was Mohammad. A night porter who made our stay really stand out with his constant attention and beautiful attitude to looking after us. We ran out of cigarettes on night, so he went out and got them. We wanted nibbles really late at night (after the kitchen had closed) and without hesitation he organised this. He was so happy and friendly, we will never forget him. A real charmer and asset to the Riad.
My girlfriend was very ill on the last night and everyone was so eager to help. Made all the more special by an email from the owners once we left asking if she was okay.
If you visit Marrakesh stay at Riad Elizabeth – we know we will be returning.
