We had an excellent stay at Riad Al Badia at the beginning of January 2014. My wife had planned the trip as a suprise for my 30th birthday. When making the booking, Laurent was always prompt with his reponses and was always extremely helpful. On arriving at the riad, we were welcomed by the softly spoken Ahmed who immediately put...

This is one of those beautiful places you also hope you will end up staying. I loved everything about the Riad al Badia. The staff were excellent, friendly and helpful.

This is a very pretty Riad in old Marrakech, easy to reach on foot from where the taxi drops you on the main road. We only stayed one night, but enjoyed the place.

Brilliant location within walking distance to main square but off main road making it very quiet at night. Staff were always very friendly and helpful. The Riad terrace would be great in warmer weather. We eat one evening in the Riad which was very tasty and cooked fresh by their chef. Would recommend this Riad and would certainly return.

This riad is beyond good, it is exceptional. The service from all the staff was 5 star. From the initial greeting where they sit you down with mint tea and go through how to orientate yourself in the maze that is the medina, recommend good restaurants (which were fantastic) and the must-see sights, to a tour of the riad.
