After booking an all inclusive resort in Marrakesh we instantly regretted it after discovering Riad Elizabeth. We had booked a week at Riu Tikida Garden resort (which was great) but I contacted Elizabeth to ask if it would be possible to stay for just one night in the Riad. Elizabeth got back to me straight away and said that would be absolutely fine.
On arriving at the Riad we were led down some very narrow winding alley ways until we reached an old dusty door, I knew what the Riad looked like inside after looking at their website but to see it for real was fantastic! It was like walking into a new world, beautifully tiled floors leading to a pool on the ground floor, quiet and tranquil. The Riad is over 4 floors including a roof terrace, we were led straight up to the terrace as we arrived earlier than planned and our room wasn't quite ready. We were presented with Moroccan tea and homemade biscuits which were delicious! I loved the roof terrace, it was a sun trap but had a shaded area where there were books and magazines to read on the cushions next to the honesty bar.
We stayed in the room named Olivia, there were gorgeous red rose petals spread across the bed through to the bathroom, a very romantic touch! The room was very clean and comfortable and quiet on a night.
I am so glad we stayed here but wish we had stayed longer so we could see more of Marrakesh and also eat some more of the gorgeous food on offer at Riad Elizabeth.
The staff were friendly and very attentive and Elizabeth and John were the most wonderful hosts... we will definitely be back!
