We had an amazing short break in Marrakech, made all the better with our stay at Abaca Badra. The Riad provides a beautiful and intimate environment to unwind right in the centre of the Medina, perfect for us as we love to explore! We highly recommend having a meal there as it was the best meal we had on our... More

We had the best time. The raid is run by the couple Dominique & Gilles. We were picked up at the air port and then taken to the raid. We were then given a map and advice as to where to go and where not to go (do not go to the tanneries!). The breakfast is almost all home made... More

The Riad was extremely clean and comfortable. Gilles and Dominique made every effort to make us comfortable and feel at home. From a home cooked breakfast to suggestions for our excursions, they went out of their way to make this a pleasurable experience. Dominique took time from her busy day and walked us into jemaa el fna to make sure... More

We stayed at Abaca Badra for 4 nights and then one more after a 5 day trip to the desert, and couldn't have been happier. Gilles & Dominique were incredibly welcoming and helpful beyond words, from suggesting restaurants to cooking delicious meals and to providing us extra blankets for our desert trip because they were concerned we would be cold....

We had a wonderful stay at Riad Abaca Badra. Dominique, Gilles and their lovely staff made us feel so welcome and were very helpful while assisting us with planning the rest of our trip in Morocco including a desert tour, day trip to Essaouria, and a number of other activities. Their generosity will make your stay one you will always... More

Dominique, Gilles and all the staff at riad abaca badra could not have been more amazing! Incredible hosts and excellent chefs allowed us the peace of mind to explore Marrakesh in our own time and pace. Breakfast whenever you are ready and all the mint tea you could could desire. Breakfast comprises of exquisite home-made marmalades and fresh bread combined... More

Stayed here on our last night in Morocco. Stayed in other riads during the earlier portion of our trip. Many riads in Marrakech are lovely but the service at Abaca Badra stood out among the rest. Specifics that we received here but not at other riads: greeted with mint tea and homemade cookies, detailed explanation of our room, large map... More

Tired after a long drive from the desert, Giles and Dominique’s welcoming faces and warm concern was exactly what we (parents and 2 children ages 7 and 10) needed. Our stay at their Riad was all that has been detailed in the reviews and it all boils down to this; Giles and Dominique are lovely people both of whom have... More
