On arrival we were generously greeted by Laurent and Mohammed. They took the time to get us settled, offered us a drink and some snacks and showed us around. They also ran through the map of places to see and even walked with us into town to show us the best routes. The highlight of our trip was the food... More

We absolutely loved our stay at Riad Al Badia. It was in a convenient location in the medina, and decor was beautiful and comfortable. While everything about the riad was great, I must say, the highlight was the staff. Every staff member was very friendly and fun to chat with. I would give a special shout-out and thanks to Laurent,... More

Our stay in the Riad Al Badia was, without a doubt, one of the best parts of our trip to Morocco! I would heartily recommends this to whoever is seeking a relaxing haven amidst the hustle and bustle of the medina, but -- more importantly -- a taste of absolutely incredible Moroccan hospitality.

From the spa like feeling when they open the door to the Majorelle inspired rooftop garden this riad is a gem. Chef Samara's tasting dinner was amazing... And educational at the same time.

I must say this is a place that defines the word "Hospitality". Both Laurent and Mohammed went an extra mile to make our stay comfortable and memorable. They provided the best service that one could ask for in terms of directions, reservations for local restaurants, taxi service, tours etc. 1. The Riad is about 7 km away from the train... More

It was really a pleasure to stay at the riad. Everyone had been friendly and helpful and felt pretty genuine. We have been a bit fussy about room size, breakfast requirements..etc and they have responded in each case with a more than satisfactory solution. I kind of felt embarrassed by how much they've put in to accommodate us. Thank you... More
