As others have said, Dominique and Giles were wonderful hosts! They arranged airport transfers, assisted us with buying a tajine, arranged a day trip to Essaouira with a friendly guide, and provided many good restaurant recommendations. They sat down with us and answered all of our questions both when we arrived and throughout our stay. We ate dinner at the... More

Dominique and Gilles were very friendly and attentive, providing not only delicious food but also useful advice for exploring the souks. They also arranged transfers to and from the airport as well as our day trip to the High Atlas; even sun hats and umbrellas are available should they be needed. The riad is very conveniently situated in a quiet... More

Let me add to the parade of 5 star reviews of Riad Abaca Badra. We stayed in the Fes room upstairs and were treated to some of the most comfy beds in Morocco, a sizable bathroom and lots of storage space. There are only 5 rooms in this guesthouse and during our 5 night stay we found it to be... More

Dominique & Gilles are just fabulous hosts. They arranged the taxi for our arrival at the airport and a lovely evening meal on our first night. Gilles spent time explaining the best places to visit and how to haggle etc whilst Dominique was kind enough to take us to the square and ensure that we could find our way back... More

My husband and I spent three nights at Gilles and Dominique's Riad. It was the tail end of our trip and we really hadn't done much research into what to do in and around the city. After a conversation with them we were truly geared up for a Marrakshi experience. Where to eat, how to bargain with the locals and... More

During a recent trip to Marrakech, myself and a friend spent the last few nights of our holiday at this Riad. We were overwhelmed by the wonderful hospitality of Gilles and Dominique. They are the perfect hosts. They upgraded our room on arrival, and made our stay very comfortable. Breakfast was served whenever it was convenient for us which is... More

Gilles and Dominique are the perfect hosts of this delightful riad (guesthouse) set in the heart of Marrakesch. Although they are from France their english is very good. They do an exceptional job in looking after their guests - we were met at the airport, fed when we arrived and given all the advice, tips and recommendations needed. Our room,... More

We chose the Riad Abaca Badra based on Tripadvisor recommendations and they were spot on as the Riad is a real gem in vibrant Marrakech. We booked directly with the Riad and the communications with Giles was very quick and he arranged the transfer. The driver was waiting for us at the airport which is great relief in the heat....

I was so impressed by the attention to detail with the service in the Riad. Truly exceptional warmth and hospitality provided by Doninique and Gilles- it shows that they take a lot of pride in their business. Appreciated the unlimited access to tea, homemade pastries, filtered water, lovely toiletries, location, and tips. Thank you!
