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!

Gilles and Dominique have created a lovely and welcoming home at Riad Abaca Badra. They are warm, genuine people who made every effort to make our stay as enjoyable as possible. Dominique even appeared one evening with a bottle of after-sun as she had clearly clocked that our pasty Irish skin had borne the brunt of the suns rays that... More

We got to this Riad quite late after a long journey to the desert. Giles was very welcoming and even upgraded us to a large room for free as it happened to be vacant when he arrived. The room was super clean and breakfast was great.

Gilles and his wife are from France. They have a beautifull Riad in the medina. Clean, fresh and with good personal service. Gilles will do everthing to make it a special Marrakesh experience. The breakfast is good. In the bathroom you even get a special shampoo and showergel.

Marrakech is a very intensive city. It's easy to get overwhelmed by all the impressions, smells, people and sounds. Staying at Abaca Badra helps you to enjoy Marrakech. When we were there, we only met Gilles. He is a great host! His tips and advices help you to get to know the best places. The rooms are lovely, very clean... More

We only stayed here for 1 night, however Gilles was very welcoming and friendly. This was a beautiful riad and wished we stayed here for longer. We had dinner and it was delicious, we recommend it to anyone who is looking for a traditional Moroccan meal!
