I have been lucky enough to travel to many amazing places however this is the first time I have reviewed a hotel on trip advisor. I am not a fan of Trip Advisor however I did use it when looking into where I should stay in Marrakech as I was finding it a real minefield and struggling with all of the options, so I hope this will help others who are in the same situation.
The Riad Al Badia completely made our stay and from the moment we stepped into the oasis of the Riad we were made to feel very special. We arrived late in the evening and from the outset Laurent the manager made sure we were comfortable and in the morning spent the best part of an hour walking us over the map of Marrakech, helping us figure out what we needed to see and do in the time we had. Then to our amazement, on our 1st foray out of the Riad, Laurent and Yusuf walked with us until we were comfortable with our surroundings and made sure we could find our way back to the Riad.
The Riad Itself is lovely. I did not look in any other Riads but I can't think of a better example of a Moroccan Riad. The rooms were extremely comfortable, clean and decorated in beautiful Moroccan styles and colours. The breakfasts were fantastic, everything being homemade , including the best yogurt I have ever tasted..seriously good.
We believed the Location was brilliant. It is a 10 minuet (easy) walk to the Main Square but you are in a quieter area, which is just what we needed after days getting lost in the souks.
It was however the service of this Riad that made our stay so special. Nothing was to much and no question lay unanswered. When we asked for restaurant recommendations we were not just offered the more expensive options closer to the Riad but also some fantastic local options which turned out to be fantastic.
This Riad was a treat for me and my wife but I have to say that it is one of those few places that is absolutely worth every penny.
