Had a magical stay in the Abaca Badra in later July for a surprise birthday present for my partner. Even though I'd read on TA about Giles and Dominique's legendary hospitality, I got a nice taste before even arriving.
I casually asked if they could do anything special for a birthday and was pleasantly surprised as they prepared a special menu, created by their chef, based around our tastes and threw in a birthday cake - all for the regular menu price. The meal was absolutely exquisite and enormous too and a great start to our weekend.
Giles and Dominique are down to earth and exceptionally friendly. They helped us feel instantly welcome and gave us great tips to make the most out of our stay - make sure you organise your transfer (v. reasonable) through them too as it takes a while to find your way around the medina without getting hopelessly lost.
The Riad itself is calm (except when there's the call to prayer - but that just adds to the experience and can't be escaped in any case !) and airy offering excellent value for money with a pleasant roof terrace and nicely decorated bedrooms.
Next time I go back, I know where I'll be staying.
