My wife and I recently stayed with friends for 4 nights. We were picked up from the airport and personally escorted to the riad by the driver. On arrival we were welcomed by Samira (a gem of a manageress)and offered refreshments before being shown to our room.
The riad is beautifully refurbished to a very high standard and is spotlessly clean. Our room overlooked a narrow street which is too narrow for cars and consequently quieter than you would expect in the centre of a bustling city. Our friends rooms were equally as nice as ours and possibly even quieter.
Our party went on may excursions which were all arranged prior to arrival by Elizabeth and John. We had excellent guides who were very knowledgable and spoke excellent English - well worth paying a little extra for.
Breakfast was served on the roof patio and every morning we were treated to a different array of goodies. Dinner was arranged for one special evening at the riad. What a wonderful experience ! It started in the morning by going to the butcher with Samira to buy the lamb and on the way picking up all the other ingredients to go in the tangier pot. We then watched the cooks preparing the dish and we the set off with our pots to go to the communal oven down the road. 6 hours later it was beautifully presented and thoroughly enjoyed.
Marrakech is fascinating,buzzing and suprisingly clean. Many places of historical interest and of course the souks, which remain unspoilt.
We shall definately return to Riad Elizabeth, you will find it hard to beat !
