We were overwhelmed by the choice of riads and chose this one on the basis of trip advisor reviews. I was a little nervous therefore as we picked our way down the little alley to find it. The welcome by the staff was so warm. We were given mint tea and advice on our plans to explore the city. The... More

Dear Madam, I thank you for your long review, and I feel a bit frustrated to read that you had such a hard time in Marrakech especially as you did not mention it once while at the riad, nor leaving. We do regularly receive single ladies or couple of friends and this is the first time we read that type... More

This review is a bit overdue, as we stayed at this amazing Riad back in November 2010. It was still rather new then, but judging from all the positive reviews since then it looks like Laurent, Ahmed, and the rest of the team are still hard at work making travellers' holidays an amazing experience. Laurent was the perfect host, and... More

Laurent and all the staff could not do enough for us and made us feel so welcome that we felt right at home. We spent a week here exploring the city, getting lost and finding ourselves again which was all part of the fun. The riad itself is close to the Palaces and the storks that nest on El Badia... More

We did our research when choosing a Riad and went for this one because of the excellent reviews, they are pretty much bang on as the service is probably the best I have received in any accomodation we have stopped in. Laurent arranged for our transportation from the airport and we were greated by Ahmed on our arrival, with some... More

Marrakech is a bit overwhelming. How lucky we were to have found a riad so welcoming that all the chaos of Marrakech could be left behind and we could relax with a cup of mint tea by the lovely pool. We were to spend three days in Marrakech before picking up our tour with Around Morocco Travels. This is the... More

They went out of their way to make us comfortable and help us enjoy Marrakech. The riad is a few hundred yards from a proper road, so cases need to be manhandled down the little alleyways. All part of the fun. We especially liked the breakfast on the roof terrace.

My partner and I stayed here for 5 nights, and we can only agree with the positive reviews already posted. Fantastic service, which even included providing a bowl of warm water infused with mint and cloves for my partner to soak her sore and blistered feet in -- a great remedy by the way!

Everything good that you read about Riad Al Badia and it's amazing staff on TripAdvisor is true! And more! We found Laurent's riad by accident because our first choice wasn't available. What a wonderfully serendipitous 'accident' that was! From our first email contact to Laurent's insistence that he personally carry our backpacks out to the taxi when we left, our... More

I cannot speak highly enough of the welcome and service we received from Laurent, Ahmed and all the staff at Riad Al Badia. Nothing was too much trouble and their care and concern was exceptional.

We booked this Riad on the strength of previous reviews here and were not disappointed. Sadly we only had two days of our five day holiday before my sister and I both went down with a bug (nothing to do with the hotel) which caused a severe stomach upset. We spent the next three days feeling totally exhausted, either in... More
