The Riad Badi is simply wonderful...why?
W - Welcoming - from the moment you step off the plane and come out of the airport a driver will be there to pick you up and take you safely to the Riad. Upon arrival at the Riad, Isabelle and Christian have the warmest genuine welcome for you which you will really appreciate after hours of travelling.
O - Open/spacious - The riad is very generous in it's space and light. The first floor consists of the breakfast/dining area, comfortable seating areas, an entertainment room, with games, books, music etc. The second floor consists of bedrooms and the third floor has a lovely roof terraced area.
N - Navigation - As you may have read from previous reviews, one of the most unique and exceptionally helpful aspects of staying here is that if you are a first time traveller to Marrakech, Christian will take you on a mini tour to help you find your bearings.
D- Design - As well as the Riad being spacious and tastefully Moroccan in design, the bedrooms are furnished in a simple, modern and luxurious way. There is real thought and attention to detail and it is so inviting to return to your room after a long day of sightseeing. Large beds, fresh, crisp linen sheets. Lovely bathroom with plentiful fluffy white towels and white bath robe. The rooms are cleaned daily by a lovely girl who regardless of the state you left it, she will leave it immaculate for you on your return!
E - Economical - Having researched numerous Riad's, this was by far the best value for money.
R- Roof terrace - On sunny days you have the pleasure of enjoying breakfast on the roof terrace or topping up your tan (beds, towels, and sun hats all there waiting!). There is a discrete toilet there too, so you don't have to go back to your bedroom.
F- Food - you will be served a hearty breakfast to get you ready for your adventures. You can also dine at the Riad in the evening if you feel like relaxing indoors.
U - Understanding - Isabelle and Christian are superb at catering for your needs, whether a bottle of water, arranging trips, taxi's, providing advice. I had a problem with the safe in my room, completely my fault, Christian fixed it within seconds and my initial panic was over!
L - Location - Perfect location south of the Medina. You will be close to Jemaa El Fna square (I recommend eating at Number one, having tried a few), good restaurants (Dar Essalam is superb) the souks are a short walk, the beautifully tranquil badi palace is literally next door to the Riad. Christian will show you where you can change your currency. You can buy lovely fresh fruit on the road to the left before crossing over, strawberries, apples etc.
Isabelle and Christian, the warmest thank you to both of you for being such fantastic hosts. Marrakech is a fabulous place to visit, but you made my trip even more special! Much love, Karen xx
