Reviewed January 18, 2014

This was the second time that I visited Riad Elizabeth. On this occasion it was just my girlfriend and I. We had the most wonderful time. Not only was the room lovely (I booked the second cheapest room) but as with last time the staff were superb. Nothing was ever too much trouble no matter what the time or the request. Before we went I bombarded John and Elizabeth with questions about christmas in Morocco, currency, weather etc and was always met with a courteous and prompt response. While we were there Samira was attentive without being intrusive, met with us every morning to see how the previous day had gone and gave us advice when needed.
I am already planning a third visit to this wonderful place!!

Thought I owed this place a long overdue review. It's lovely. We were 3 girls and stayed in the smallest room (I think) but it was still lovely. Roof is great. Takes around 10-15 mins to walk to the main square, it's not an easy route but you learn quick enough. Recommend you eat at the riad at least once. Breakfast also nice. Only gripe was the in accessibility for cars, it meant we couldn't get our own cabs as we couldn't explain where we needed to get to. Of course the great staff will order them for you but it's more expensive. It's a very good looking place also. They booked a spa treatment for us at the bains de Marrakech which I'd also thoroughly recommend.

Even before we arrived, Elizabeth has already provided excellent service through emails. She was friendly and helpful, and helped with every detail. We had booked this Riad almost 7 weeks before our arrival, and Elizabeth had, besides helping with the room reservation, also recommended restaurants and spas for us. She had also helped us to make reservations at all the restaurants we wanted.

Upon our arrival via train from Casa, the Riad pickup was there, and our transfer was without a hitch. after 25hours, the last thing we needed was to fuss about getting to the Riad in the maze like Medina. Thankfully, we had the pickup arranged.

During the stay, Semira was as helpful and courteous as can be. This made our Honeymoon even better. she was always available and provided all sorts of assistance and even organised a trip to Ourika Valley for us. That side trip was actually the highlight of our Honeymoon!
Staff was always cheery and helpful, and that added to the charm of Riad Elizabeth.

Location wise, it was just 5-10mins walk to the Souk, and 15mins to the Square... you couldn't ask for a better location, its near the major sights, yet far away enough from the noise.

Great Find!

We stayed here in January 2013 and returned a year later. For us this is in a perfect location in the Medina, near the souks and try the Terrasse La Medersa around the corner for a light lunch. We stayed in Olivia room which was clean and the bed remains the most comfortable we've slept in on holiday. The other rooms look lovely too. The staff are all helpful and Samira couldn't do enough to help us make the most of our stay. Elizabeth arranged our transfer from a hotel on the outskirts of Essaouira, the driver found it and was there on time.
We'll definitely be back!

Do not hesistate at all to book Riad Elizabeth.

We were a group of 10 girls on a hen party and from the moment we contacted the Riad, John and Elizabeth were super helpful. They helped organise us tours and NYE plans, provided lots of suggestions for nightlife and even researched vegetarian restaurant menus for us, hammam bath experience (definately go with their recommendations)!

We bugged John and Elizabeth with lots of emails and they always responded straight away!

The riad itself is gorgeous just like the pictures you see on the website! Rooms are beautifully decorated.

The staff however is what makes this place great. Samira is fab, nothing was too much for her, from restaurant bookings, taxi services, phone calls at 2am! She has great knowledge!

What I loved was no matter what time it was (quite often 3/4am) Yousef would meet us at the taxi drop off point and take literally a 30seconds walk down a dimlit alley and walk us back to the riad. Even when we were leaving for bars restaurants at night from riad he would walk us to the cab!

All the staff went above and beyond and really made us feel safe.

The riad have recommended taxi drivers- which I would highly recommend they always drop you off outside your location (not streets away and expect you to walk), they are very honest (we nearly overpaid them once).

The cook made us a yummy traditional morrocan meal (definately recommend you try it) and each day their was a new menu for breakfast.

Perfect location- 10 minute walk to the markets/souk. I didnt find the streets noisy and slept fine

I will definately come back and stay here again!

Room Tip: All rooms are gorgeous! no need to select a specific one you will be happy with whichever!

The location of the Riad is perfect, just outside the souks and a short (15 min) walk to the main square (still enough time to get lost in but that is part of the experience you have to do).

The hotel itself is wonderfully cosy, with some beautiful details and amazing hospitality from the owners and all the staff - you are immediately made to feel as if you are in a home away from home and they can't seem to do enough to help or advise you.

They will cook great food for you if you wish to stay in, or do their up most to help you book a meal, or any activity in or outside the city.

I couldn't say enough to give the credit that this Riad, and all those who are involved in running it deserve. Fantastic stay.

Room Tip: I stayed in the lowest priced room (I think) on the ground floor (called Louise), and it was more th...
