A fabulous couple of days spent in Marrakech. The owners are helpful and friendly. The place is charming and beautifully decorated. Breakfast and dinner exquisite. Centrally located - although don't expect to be able to find it yourself! Ask a local and pay them a few dirham. Highly recommended.

This well situated riad was a peaceful haven from the nearby souk. The owners are welcoming, helpful and very knowledgable. The riad is beautifully decorated with large clean rooms, and areas for relaxing both in and outside. Breakfasts were sumptious and a pre booked dinner on arrival was delicious and better than any of the rather good restaurants we also... More

A lovely Riad run by a very friendly and helpful couple Gilles and Dominique. It is in the Medina and very close to the souks but also within walking distance of the bus station (we caught a bus there to Essaouira). The Riad is beautifully decorated and the room was large, clean and comfortable. The calm and peaceful atmosphere was... More

As soon as the door closes behind you, all of the hustle and bustle of the busy streets of Marrakesh disappear! This Riad is a beautiful oasis of calm, just 5 minutes walk from the souks. The hosts, Gilles and Dominique are so friendly and welcoming, nothing is too much trouble. Our room was massive and well air conditioned, with... More

I would definitely recommend this riad. It had friendly and helpful owners, a lovely roof terrace with loungers and shady areas and great breakfasts served by the host Gilles. The bedrooms with ensuite bathrooms were very spoacious and clean. All in all a lovely riad located a 10 minute walk away from the souks and the main square. Definitely recommend.

Friendly owners, nice location, beautiful riad! This is about all you can ask for in Marrakech. It is a beautiful riad, close to everything but just far enough out of the hustle and bustle. 5 minutes to the souks and 15 minutes to the square. Rooms are large with HUGE bathrooms. Breakfast was great and a very nice touch to... More

Giving the Riad Abaca Badra highly deserved full marks in this review worries me. Why? Because next time we, or the family and friends to whom we will certainly recommend it, try to make a reservation they will surely be fully booked. There are not sufficient superlatives to describe the friendly, kind, willing and attentive treatment we received from Gilles... More

We had an absolutely fantastic experience with Gilles and Dominique!! They thought of everything! They easily set up a last minute hamamm and massage appointment for us. The food was superb! Our stay was of such value because of the heart they put in their business. We highly recommend you book with them while visiting Marrakesh. We went during Ramandan,... More
