“Could not ask for anything more”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 1, 2013

Spent 6 nights at this beautiful riad while attending a conference - I was travelling alone for the first 4 nights (my husband only joined once my conference had ended) and I was very well looked after - in fact Laurent even arranged excursions for my colleagues who were not staying at the Riad.

I loved the walk from the Riad to the square, amazing breakfast on the terrace (my waistline has increased), wonderful suggestions from team in terms of restaurants - hope that one day my travels bring me back here.

Room Tip: i stayed in a room on the terrace and loved that I could sit outside in the evening and enjoy the so...

We all remain at your disposal while you are still visiting south of Morocco our drivers and especially little « Oulik » remain available, just contact us and once again, our heartfelt gratitude to both of you for everything you gave us.

I have meaning to leave a review for the last 6 months - how time flies! We stayed in the Riad in November to celebrate my husbands up and coming 40th. The Riad was a tranquil escape from the hustle and bustle of the city. We enjoyed thepersonal service offered by the friendly and helpful staff. The meal we had cooked for us in the Riad was the best meal we had during our whole stay. We managed to have breakfast on the rooftop which was a real treat. The rooms were clean and decorated nicely. Thank you Ahmed and all the staff at Riad Al Badia.

We both loved the place, the hotel has all you need, and the rooms are clean/tidy (rest of the hotel as well of course). The hotel has a great rooftop terras and breakfast is excellent. But the absolute plus of this place is the service. The staff is very kind, proactive (but definitely not in a disturbing way), fast and creative. They are determined to make you walk around with a smile all day and in our case more than succeeded. From small things like arranging a charger (which i forgot) to advices on how to spend your day and where to eat; eg we wanted to relax a day near a pool and they came up with the great & inexpensive place where we spend a wonderful day. They really made our citytrip feel like a holiday, as we were truly able to relax and enjoy Marrakech. I would recommend this place to everyone.

My boyfriend and I stayed at the Al Badia last week for 5 nights. We want to thank Ahmed and all the staff for a wonderful stay. Everyone was very friendly and helpful and we felt throughly looked after the whole time we were there. The Riad is beautiful, modern with a traditional twist and a tranquil haven from the hectic rush of the streets. We ate at the Riad twice and the food was AMAZING! The best meals we had on our whole trip. Thank you again for making our holiday so special and memorable.

We really enjoyed our stay here last week - clean, comfortable, good food, good location, friendly and helpful staff - would love to be back there now! Thank you Ahmed for looking after us,being so helpful and to all the staff because from what we observed you worked very much together as a team. Very relaxing atmosphere and loved the copious amounts of mint tea - we are hooked!

Room Tip: We had the blue room (superior) but can't compare with any others as we didn't look inside...

Stayed here for 3 nights and enjoyed every minute of it. The staff could not have been nicer. The Riad is beautiful and welcoming. We had breakfast every morning on the roof and ate dinner there one night which was wonderful. They are very helpful with restaurant suggestions, calling for taxi's, meeting you to help carry luggage or anything else. We truly felt like we were family and we were home. Would not hesitate to stay there again. It is in a good location, very close to the Medina. The Wifi was not good in our room and to get good service you had to sit in a common area. That would be my one and only negative comment and that was not a big deal. Thank you Laurent!
