Myself and a friend stayed at Abaca Badra for 3 nights at the end of June and cannot recommend it highly enough! It was wonderful. Gilles and Dominique are incredibly hospitable and helpful and go out of their way to help their guests. The Riad itself is beautiful and gives you a sense of calm in an incredibly busy and bustling city. There are lots of places to sit and chill out and the rooms are lovely and air-conditioned. Our room was beautiful and cleaned every day. It's only 10 minutes away from the main square and Gilles shows you the two routes so you know how to navigate your way around (he also told us the best way to get back at night which was appreciated as being two blonde girls we were concerned about being hassled, but going the main road way meant this wasn't an issue at all). They also gave us a map and showed us places of interest and how best to get there again. I would certainly have Gilles and Dominique organise a transfer for you from the airport as Marrakech is a maze and I think you'd struggle to find the Riad yourself, and the transfer they organise is very reasable in cost. They have filtered water available so you don't have to go and buy bottles all the time which is a welcomed little extra as when it's hot you drink so much! The mint tea is the best we had in Marrakech too and is available whenever you would like it. Gilles and Dominique go out of their way to ensure your trip is special, and myself and my friend would not hesitate in going back - it really was a fantastic place to stay!
