Just returned from a fabuous time in Marrakech and all thanks to Gilles and Dominique, the Riad owners. From arrival to departure they ensured that our stay was perfect. Dominique showed us to our room which is decorated in true Moroccan theme and there is also shower gel, shampoo and body lotion provided and topped up every day. The shower... More

Dominique and Gilles are the diamonds in this jewel of a riad. What can I say but to endorse the wonderfully positive reviews already posted. From the minute we booked this riad to the minute we left to come home we were shown the utmost consideration and kindness. We have stayed in lots of different types of accommodation in many...

Dominique and Gilles are the friendliest, most fantastic hosts. Their riad has been lovingly put together and each room is unique. I have nothing but positive things to write about my experiences here. On arrival you are greeted with a delicious pot of moroccan tea, just what you need after a long journey. Dominique helped us book our hamam, gave... More

Abaca Badra is a unique Rijad in the very center of Marakech, right next to the old Medina, situated in a charming old neighborhood with tiny little streets where it's easy to get lost. The place is run by Dominique & Gilles, an extremely nice, warm and helpful French couple that will help you with anything you might need (they... More

We arrived exhausted from our 4 day tour (Sahara desert) to the quaint street where the Riad was. We knocked on the door and were greeted by Dominique who I immediately liked. She welcomed us with Moroccan tea and biscuits and gave us a tour of the Riad and a map of highlights in Marrakesh, how to barter, what to... More

Dominique and Giles are incredible hosts who are so kind. The riad is wonderfully peaceful and very well placed, and the breakfast is one of the best we've ever had. It's situated in a quiet side street but very close to the souks and not far from the main square- ideal. Dominique and Giles were so helpful and had such... More

As we've heard a lot about the difficulties of finding the accommodation in the labyrinth that are Marrakech's streets we were happy to accept Dominique & Gilles' offer of a transfer from the airport to the riad (15 € for both of us). The driver(s) made me feel very safe in the (so it seems) chaotic traffic and played lovely... More

We had a great time staying with Gilles and Dominique at this Riad, they were so accommodating as soon as we walked in the door. They were happy to overload us with information about what to go and see in Marrakech as well as offering us solid advice about getting to Imlil in the High Atlas. The breakfast was great... More

This riad is situated in a wonderful position in the old town la Medina and very close to the Djeema el Fna Square. It is a very nice place with lovely and super clean rooms and a nice terrace on the top. The breakfast is delicious, everything is home made and for me they serve the best the a la... More

Gilles and Dominique could not have been more gracious or helpful during our stay in Marrakech. They really helped us get our bearings and make it through the rest of our trip. Their communication was very prompt and Gilles was always available to answer any question we may have about Marrakech. Everything was just as promised -- from the airport... More
