I chose this riad on the strength of the posts I read, and I'm very pleased to have stayed here. The staff are universally nice, very helpful, pleasant and keen to help. I had a grump after I was moved to a smaller room after my first night, but that was because I hadn't been told that I had been... More

We went during July and temperatures in Marrakech were over 40 degrees but this didn't have any negative impact on our visit (and made us appreciate the Riad even more). The Riad is a bit hard to find when first arriving so make sure you know a couple of the roads near it (or print out a map). When we... More

My friend and I spent 5 nights last week at this Riad and could not have asked for more. Laurent certainly knows customer service and the staff have taken it all on board.

We stayed at Riad Al Badia for a couple of nights in June and it was absolutely perfect. Laurent and his team were incredibly helpful before we had even arrived - arranging airport transfers and transport to and from Essaouira for us. On our arrival, we were welcomed with delicious mint tea and a tour of the Riad. We were... More

I will not belabor all the great things that have already been written on Tripadvisor about the Riad al Badia. They are all true. What I want to share with the readers is a specific example of how the staff at the Riad exceeded our expectations for customer service. Because of a general strike in Portugal where we were prior...

My (adult) daughters and I spent five wonderful nights at Riad Al Badia, and we couldn't recommend it more highly.

An oasis for real. This hotel was a bargain. Each room has a colour theme. The staff is very attentive and caring. Relaxed comfort and a decorator's paradise awaits the traveller. Located amongst native dwellings, one feels in touch with Moroccans.
