My husband and I and our three teenage girls have just returned from 5 nights in the wonderful Riad Badi. The riad itself is just a 10 minute walk from Jemaa el Fna so a brilliant location. The rooms are all beautifully decorated with great en suite facilities and air conditioning (a must in August!). There is a plunge pool on the roof terrace for cooling down and loungers for sun bathing. We spent time up there most afternoons relaxing with a book and napping. On the ground floor are sitting areas for relaxing and including one room with lots of games where we played cards in the evening.
But what makes Riad Badi such a wonderful place to stay is the owners Christian and Isabella who were so incredibly helpful. Christian took us out to the main square on the first afternoon to help us get out bearings and explained all about money and bartering and basically everything we needed to know to enjoy our stay and not get ripped off! They were both available at any time to help with advice, find out about day trips and places to visit. Nothing was too much trouble.
They recommended places to eat (one of which we went to three times the food was so good) and on the last night we had dinner cooked by Isabella in the riad which was sensational, as were the breakfasts each morning which despite our best efforts we never managed to finish.
This was our first time in Marrakesh,a city which can be a little overwhelming and confusing but with Christian and Isabella's wonderful help and hospitality we had a great time.
