10/10 Exceptional

This Riad is a piece of paradise in this crazy world. Once you step through the beautiful front door, a beautiful, quiet oasis awaits you. Hosted by Said and his wife Majda, who will make you a wonderful traditional lunch or dinner upon request. This Riad is like an English B&B but in another world. Authentic Morrocan, quiet, great service, and a nice breakfast. Nothing was too much trouble for Mr. Said, he is a great host. We hope to come back.

8/10 Very good

Overall our stay at Riad Elias was a pleasant one. Said, the owner doesnt speak much English, but we were able to communicate enough to get by. We could hear everyone in the room and I'm sure that everyone could hear us. The location of the Riad was good, but note that you will have to walk through the market area every time you want to go home. Speaking of home, the staff were wonderful and they had a very friendly pet turtle there. The staff cleaned up our room every day and even with some cash left around by us at one point accidentally, they didnt take anything. Lastly, don't expect a 5 star accommodation. I would say that this is comparable to an elevated hostel. NOTE: The government expects an extra tourist tax at the end of your stay and Said will ask for it in cash. We calculated it beforehand so there wasnt an argument about it.

Home away from home
Amazing hospitality by Saeed and Sanaa. It was a home away from home. Nothing was too much for them. They would go the extra mile for you. My son got sick and needed medicine in the middle of the night and Saeed took me by bike to the pharmacy and helped me get the right thing for him. Definitely recommend a stay here
