Stayed at Riad al Badia for 6 nights recently with my boyfriend and I can honestly say it was one of the most enjoyable weeks I could have possibly had.
We booked after reading excellent reviews on tripadvisor, in particular those that commented on the brilliant hospitality. We were not disappointed. Having flown into Agadir due to the closure of Marrakech airport, we finally arrived at Marrakech 2 hours late and were promptly picked up by our taxi driver who had left his dinner as soon as Laurent had called letting him know we had finally arrived!
Despite our late arrival we were warmly welcomed with delicious mint tea (certainly the best we had in our whole time in Marrakech) and yummy Moroccan pastries. Laurent showed us round the riad which was simply beautiful before we were served up a three course meal that was scrumptious!
Although being a young student couple we were looked after as any other guest would have been and we felt extremely safe - on our first morning one of the staff (whose name i have completely forgotten but whom was lovely!) gave us a map and gave us all the information we needed to navigate our way around the city.
Breakfast was delicious - all fresh and the homemade yoghurt was certainly the highlight.
Our room was spotless and beautifully decked out.
We booked through Laurent a trip into the Atlas mountains which was one of the highlights of our stay (see other review on 4x4 camel) and on our return to the riad we stayed in a different double room. The air con wasn't working properly and although cold it wasn't as cold as we would have liked. On telling the staff, reasonably late at night, we were promptly given a fan for the room and received numerous apologies! The next day by the time we returned from our morning out in the city, someone had already been in and fixed the system - excellent service!
All the staff were exceptional - we were always greeted with a smile and nothing was ever too much hassle. We loved returning to the peace and quiet of the riad.
I would highly recommend Riad al Badia for the delicious food, warm hospitality and beautiful decor - we had the best time ever. Thank you Laurent and all your wonderful staff - we will certainly return!
