I stayed in the cosy Meknes room on my third trip to Marrakech. I booked using the 'last minute' deal option to get 20% off so the riad was excellent value at around 35 euro per night. The bed was exceptionally comfortable and the riad is a very peaceful place so I had some of the best night’s sleep. The...

I would give full marks to Gilles and Dominique, the owners of this place. They are ever willing to give you valuable information about the place and its' surrounds and are always there to help you. Which makes you feel at home. The place is very conveniently located, just 2 mins from the main road and walking distance from all...

Had a wonderful stay with Dominique & Gilles on my last 3 nights in Marrakech (& Morocco) - highly recommended if you want to be well taken care of by the resident owners and enjoy a gem of a riad. Breakfasts were plentiful, varied, & the best on my trip; there is filtered water available throughout the riad (free); fresh...

We are back at the Riad Abaca Badra once again enjoying Gilles and Dominique's (GD for brevity from now on) hospitality, aided by their wonderful staff Soumia, Fathia and Khadija. We have stayed in riads and hotels elsewhere in Morocco but nowhere can approach the joys of being here. Actually I can't think of anywhere we have stayed that comes...

Gilles and Dominique, the proprietors here, go out of their way to make you feel at home in this cozy riad on a quiet derb between Dar el-Basha and Bab Doukala. The location is convenient to everything you could possibly want: airport, bus station, Jemaa al-Fnaa, Guéliz, souks, etc. Our room, Ouarzazate, was spacious and well-appointed. There's plenty of common...

It has a cosy atmosphere with several small lounges to play board games. Gilles and Dominique, the owners of the Riad, are really helpful and make sure that you have a fantastic time in Marrakech.

We have just returned from the Abaca Badra for the forth time and we are already planning our next trip. This really is a fantastic place to stay when in Marrakech. The warm friendly greeting from the hosts Gilles and Dominique make you feel at home from the outset. The Riad is stylish, comfortable and spotlessly clean. As an added...

Dominque & Gilles are fantastic hosts who care deeply about their guests - they provide useful "survival" tips for Marrakech, provide water for your day so that you're not dehydrated, assisted us in booking tours, and offered a small gift to remember the stay! They gave us great restaurant recommendations, and directed us to the best FX shop (which was...
