Riad Badi truly deserves its status as number one riad on Tripadvisor! (I haven't stayed in them all - but why go anywhere else when you find such a treat, eh?!) Isabelle and Christian are warm, laid-back, generous people, and their riad is absolutely gorgeous! The attention to detail during out five-night stay was incredible; rose petals sprinkled on the...

Isabelle and Christian are great hosts and will bend over backwards to make sure that you have everything you need, from breakfast or drinks on the terrace to organising excursions and suggesting places to visit, shop, eat or drink. Even at the hottest time of year, the Riad is relatively cool, and if it's still too hot, the plunge pool... More

Isabelle and Christian are wonderful hosts. They are hosts in the true sense for they live in the Riad as well so they are extra careful about security. All other reviews -- about Christian's tour, good breakfasts with the home-made yoghurts and jams, location close to the main sights of the medina, the lush towels -- are all true. There... More

This hotel really was like a haven in the madness of Marrakech. Not only was it clean, relaxing and a really lovely hotel with a great terrace Isabelle and Christian are such lovely people. We arrived and Christian talked us through everything and even showed us around which really made a difference because its so easy to get lost. The... More

We stayed at Riad Badi for one week and were later joined by our family. We were all so impressed by Isabelle and Christian’s wonderful hospitality. They were the most welcoming, considerate and helpful of hosts. The Riad is absolutely beautiful with such attention to detail: it is a real haven of tranquillity after the bustle of the souks.

Isabelle and Christian are such welcoming, helpful and lovely hosts, their riad is just beautiful as well. The location is also really good, as the main square is just a short walk, but at the same time it is far enough out to be quiet. So relaxing and a pleasure to stay there, I doubt you will find a better... More

Riad Badi is managed by the lovely couple Isabelle and Christian. On our first day at arrival, Christian showed us the surroundings to the riad and the main points inside the medina so we could be able to manage alone. After this tour there was no need to use any guide during the week, even in souks. Christian also pointed... More

A beautiful riad, owned and operated by two of the nicest and most welcoming people we've met. After a long day of (hot) travel, Christian and Isabelle greeted us with Moroccan tea, then gave a walking tour of the medina area, pointing out key sights and good restaurants along the way. In the mornings, we woke to a delicious breakfast... More

Isobelle and Christian are the most amazing hosts!
