Five of us stayed here in January 2013 for four nights, we had three doulble rooms and each room was unique.It was an oasis of calm in the middle of madness! The accomodation was fabulous, clean, fragrant and had all the modcons yet kept its Moroccon feel. The staff cannot do enough for you and will endeavour to try and... More

We stayed for four nights, with two kids. The staff is very friendly and helpful, the breakfasts delicious, the riad itself very lovely. The room was rather small for the four of us (junior suite), so next time I would have chosen two rooms instead. The walk to the riad from the street is a bit of a cultural shock,... More

We stayed in December and thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Al Badia. Laurent and his team is amazingly friendly, attentive and very much contributes to making this a special place to stay.

In the south of the Medina in Berrima, the Riad is a 6 bedroom house in a pleasant building. we were welcomed with sweet mint tea and pastries - ask if you prefer sugarless. Very friendly staff though occasionally oversolicitous. In December the building is rather cold. We had the Turquoise room: queen bed, table & chairs, dreadful painting and... More

We found this riad through the many good reviews in Trip Advisor. We expected a nice place but they exceeded our expectations. We were greeted with mint tea and small pastries.

Finally a trip advisor review that can be trusted! Stayed in a fair share of places in both marrakech and the coastal towns, all offering different experiences- your riad is a lovely place for us to spend our final evening in morrocco. Attentive staff, clean, well presented. Excellent service- thank you for your time!

Stayed here in October and was not disappointed. We found it a little difficult to find at first, but paid a local boy to walk us to the door.
