Once again, this is a review full of praise for Dominic, Gilles and their Riad. We stayed with them on our first visit to Marrakech and having booked through booking.com we were reassured to receive an email from them soon after making the reservation. They arranged a taxi transfer from the airport, gave us tips on where to exchange our... More

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

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
