If you are not staying in the Raid you can still use the Spa services. which is beautiful all black and gold pool. it does not feel like you are in the middle of Marrakech. wonderful service i do believe the price was expensive compared to the other Raids. so if you are looking for spa treatments at a cheaper cost go somewhere else but experience and perfect pictures come to this raid

I’m sure the riad is beautiful, but unfortunately I wasn’t given a chance to see it, as the guy at the door forbade me and my mom from entering. When we persisted he said it’s forbidden for Moroccans (we are Moroccan and my mom wears the headscarf). He said the owner told him so and he couldn’t do anything about it. I don’t know if the owner is a big racist or the guy at the door is against his own people, but this is pure discrimination and humiliation. I’ve sent an email to the riad but haven’t gotten a response. This happened on 25/04 around 15h.

Riad Elisa is a gorgeous riad located in the heart of the medina. The rooms and the courtyard are elegant with intricate carvings and quintessential Moroccan architecture that will mesmerize you. Most importantly Loubna and her team at the riad go above and beyond to make your stay convenient and provide you with a true luxurious experience. The staff is highly courteous and accommodating. Their hammam and spa experience is undoubtedly one of the best in Marrakech. It is peaceful and quaint once you step inside and provides a solace from the busy souks nearby. Would highly recommend.

Beautiful riad, just as nice as the pictures. But this place is NOT a 5 star hotel. There is a beautiful lobby bar that is not ready. There is a rooftop terrace that is not ready. Without these amenities, it cannot be considered anything more than a 3 star Bed and Breakfast, except breakfast is not included. Also, the street the riad is located on is horrendous. Scootters buzzing by a 20kph at all hours of the day. very dangerous to walk and horrible pollution. If you would like a relaxing trip to marrakesh, do yourself a favor and stay at a hotel outside of the walled city. It is 4-5 dollar cab ride to the old city each way. It is best to be able to leave the walled city, as it gets very crowded and smelly.

Staff are wonderful and professional especially Fatima and Loubna always ready for help and solve problems, the spa is relaxing and beautiful, really it was lovely experience we will come back again for sure. Highly recommend!!

Once you get through the busy streets and enter the medina walls Riad Elisa is just another door in the wall until you step inside and immediately feel a sense of calm and peace. It is a beautiful place .we stayed 4 nights. Loubna is a credit to the hotel, she gave advice on everything we needed. Sorted out a driver for us and made sure our stay was worthwhile. The spa is so relaxing, although the pool was freezing! We had Hamman and massage and it was an amazing experience. Breakfast was lovely and was definitely a feast! The Riad is in a great location and most places you can walk to, Djemma al Fna, Le Jardin secret, Ben Youssef Madrasa, souks. Etc. When I return I will be staying here again. Thanks Loubna, Norman and the rest of the team!

We stayed in the Riad for 7 nights and had a fantastic time. The Spa is extraordinary and so Relaxing - we felt like we were in heaven ;). The staff - especially Loubna (!!!) - is so friendly we felt more than welcome. We can recommend the Riad and the spa (for People who don't stay in the Hotel) 100%! Thank you Riad Elisa Spa for our fantastic stay!

When you want to feel yourself like a rich traveller back in time, but enjoy 21st century comfort, stay in riad (counter to a hotel) this accommodation is in center position (medina) close to every POI you might to visit. Dazzling life starts when you left the riad, nevertheless inside the building it's quiet. Hammam and spa right inside the riad building is superb for relax, massage, and water treatment.

Such a lovely place! Pristine white marble, cool courtyard, white walls. Very comfortable bedroom but quite small, with enormous bed. And the staff are excellent, friendly helpful and very professional. Two years ago the Riad was done up by a Spanish architect in the Alhambra/Muslim style, and no expense seems to have been spared. The spa is very beautiful, too. Quiet, but eight minutes walk from Jemaa el Fna and very central. You can walk to all tourist sites, although taxis are two minutes away if you want them. Problems: the internet worked very spasmodically, and you cannot get to the front door by taxi - the road is too narrow. Greatly recommended.

We had an amazing stay in Marrakech. We got such a great warm welcome from the receptionist Loubna! Who gave us some great recommendations for places to go, like Bo-zin (must visit!). The riad is beautiful, the breakfast was perfect, the staff is great and the hammam is amaaaazing. We would definitely come back! :) Thank you Riad Elisa & Loubna :-) Jeroen & Jelle
