My wife and I spent 4 nights at the riad Abaka, not knowing quite what to expect, as this was our first trip to Morocco. Philippe had arranged for us to be picked up at the airport, and we were charmed by the place the moment we stepped in and saw its quaint little courtyard and pool. Our room was on the first floor, up a winding staircase, and done up in Moroccan style, but with an air-conditioner tucked away discreetly. That night, we had the most delicious dinner we 've had in Morocco, whipped up by Younis, who does the night shifts.
We spent quite a bit of time in the riad, relaxing in the courtyard or the open terrace over cups of mint tea, but the riad was very close (2 - 3 minutes walk) from the souks and the Jemaa el Fnaa at the heart of the old city. In spite of this, it was quiet and peaceful, and we slept well in the comfortable room.
The best thing about the riad, however, are the staff - Younis, Adil and the girls, Muna and Scheherazade - always smiling and cheerful, ready to help with advice or things like arranging trips to the hammam, or a pot of mint tea (I love the stuff!). A big thank you to all of them, and we would definitely recommend the Abaka to anyone visiting Marrakech.
