We have just had a fantastic 4 night stay with Christian & Isabelle and their team at Riad Badi. We knew before we arrived that we were in for a good experience by reading all the other reivews, which have made this No.1 on Tripadviser. They truly deserve this accolade. Nothing was too much trouble. From the time of booking the emails back and forward were very helpful and we felt we knew them before arriving. We were collected from the airport by the transport arranged and taken to the end of the lane where the Riad is situated. Opening the door of the taxi a voice said "Hello Linda", that was Isabelle!! Once inside we were given Moroccan tea and Christian orientated us with maps, and suggestions of places to visit. He took us on a trip to the Al Fnaa Square and to a cash machine which gave a good rate. He explained what to look out for and what prices to pay. His information was invaluable. We were there for my husband's 70th birthday and had booked a restaurant. Chrisitian even walked us there, which we were so grateful for as it was situated down narrow lanes.
The room was beautiful. On arrival we had biscuits and water in the room and the whole room was adorned with rose petals (even in the toilet!!). Each day we had fresh fluffy towels and the room was immaculate. We stayed in the Hibisus room which is really large and air conditioned, which was a must. The decor is beautiful. The rooms were so quiet at night and we both slept so well. Breakfasts were lovely with different bread and jams every day. There was so much of it too. We ate two nights in the Riad and, again, the food was faultless and served beautifully.
Christian & Isobelle you thoroughly deserve your 5 stars and anyone that gives you less than this does not deserve to stay with you. Long may it last!!!! You have left us with lovely memories of John's 70th birthday and we thank you for your kind hospitality. Please also thank your team. Their smiling faces and helpfulness every morning was a delight. We would love to come again one day. xx
