We were lucky enough to stay at Riad Al Badia for 4 nights last weekend, and can highly recommend it to anyone who wants to experience the real Marrakech and be looked after like royalty.
I booked the trip as a surprise present for my husbands 65th birthday as i wanted something that was going to be memorable - it was certainly that and so much more. We both fell in love with Marrakech and this Riad, which really is something very special.
The Riad is beautiful, peaceful, and spotlessly clean throughout. The roof terrance is idyllic, rooms comfortable and nicely decorated, and the homecooking just wonderful. We were fortunate to sample breakfast, lunch and dinner, all of which were fantastic. What made each meal so special (apart from the taste) was the explanation we were given about each dish, so not only did we know what it was, but also the history behind it and when it would be eaten by a Morrocan family. This really added to the authentic feel of our visit.
Outside of the hotel our favourite restaurant was the Kosybar which is close by and has an amazing chilled out atmosphere, great food and terrific views.
We loved Marrakech itself and found the people to be lovely. We felt very safe and at home there. Shoping in the Souks is a great experience so make sure you have plenty of room in your suitcase for your flight home!
I am really struggling to sum up just how special the team at this Riad are. They want you to have an amazing time whilst you are with them, and share their local knowledge to ensure this happens. This really is priceless.
From start to finish they went out of their way to be the perfect hosts (and guides), from mint tea and pastries on arrival (along with an explanation of where you are and how to get to where you want to go), an escort when you first venture out so you get your bearings, recommending and booking restaurants, phoning the airport to check flight times (and then rearranging lunch and taxi when it our flight was delayed).
The staff here are a very dedicated and loveable team of people who take great pride in providing an exceptionally high level of service to their guests.
So if you are looking for somewhere very special to stay book this Riad.
So from Jacqueline and James in the UK a massive THANK YOU to Laurent, Ahmed, Mohammed, Samira, and all the team for making our trip so very special.
