I really can't think of anything wrong about this riad, the second one we stayed at during our trip to Marrakech. It is small and charming, with a little courtyard and swimming pool and the breakfast room at one end. My room was very tastefully decorated with blue accents and the bed was extremely comfortable - I slept like a rock almost every night I was there.

The staff, including Ahmed and Laurent, were extremely helpful in all ways and gave us excellent recommendations on where to eat, and directions on how to get places. We are particularly grateful for Ahmed recommending the restaurant Aicha No.1, an outdoor covered restaurant in Place Jemaa el Fna, the main square.

I would like to thank the staff for their warmth and attentiveness!

Five of us stayed here in January 2013 for four nights, we had three doulble rooms and each room was unique.It was an oasis of calm in the middle of madness! The accomodation was fabulous, clean, fragrant and had all the modcons yet kept its Moroccon feel. The staff cannot do enough for you and will endeavour to try and answer all your questions and arrange any trips outside in Marrakech.
The breakfast was lovely, homemade pancakes, coffee, freshly squeesed orange juice and mint tea, we didnt get chance to have an evening meal but I would imagine it would have been excellent.
A welcome break from the busy streets and hustle and bustle, Laurent and his team have got it spot on..

We were all that pleased to receive you at Riad Al Badia, even if 1 member for this adventure was missing, this is just postponed and we are very looking forward to meeting with him very soon. We all would like to say thank you for your happiness, your sense of humour, your smiles and enthusiasm everyday were just the icing on the cake for us. I we said when you left, do not change a thing, you are all 5 just fabulous. So thank you for everything you gave us during your stay and we hope to see you in a not too far future. We wish you all a very happy new year 2013. Take good care of all of you and we hope the missing gentleman will recover very quickly in order to come and visit!

We stayed for four nights, with two kids. The staff is very friendly and helpful, the breakfasts delicious, the riad itself very lovely. The room was rather small for the four of us (junior suite), so next time I would have chosen two rooms instead. The walk to the riad from the street is a bit of a cultural shock, so the surprise of seeing the serene place behing a door is even greater. Would definitely recommend to someone looking for comfortable adventure (as opposed to leisurely vacation in luxury)

We stayed in December and thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Al Badia. Laurent and his team is amazingly friendly, attentive and very much contributes to making this a special place to stay. The little extra's like helping us get bus and train tickets and having the tickets waiting when you get back after a long day in Marrakech was highly appreciated. We didn't eat dinner here on our visit, but the breakfasts were great. The only negative is that it is a slight walk to the main square.

Family holidays at Al Badia where fantastic. Perfect contact, perfect service, perfect organization.It was not so obvious because we where 13 persons between 10 and 70 ! Al Badia organized the Christmas dinner with Moroccan musicians and belly dancers, a trip for all of us to Essaouira, transfers to the airport ...The refinement of the Riad and the service was well above our expectations.The patio is covered and heated in winter. The size of the Riad (6 rooms) is perfect for our family, large enough and intimate at the same time.Very well exposed terrace has a beautiful 360 ° view on the Atlas, Coutoubia ...The service was perfect while being discreet. Moroccan food was varied and delicious, including the gargantuan breakfast.The nearest minaret is far enough away not to be awakened by the Muesin ...Special mention to Laurent, our host, who took care of us like friends. He was part of the success of this great family time!In May we return to Marrakech and did not hesitate to book here again!

Room Tip: 1 room on the patio, 2 on the terrace, 3 at the first floor with 1 suite. All very quiet.

Thank you again for everything you gave us during this few days and we are very looking forward to being in next May to be able to see you both again. We also wish you all the best, full of success, happiness, health for you and your all family during this new year 2013. Take good care of both of you and see you in May.
