My wife and I spent 4 nights at the riad Abaka, not knowing quite what to expect, as this was our first trip to Morocco. Philippe had arranged for us to be picked up at the airport, and we were charmed by the place the moment we stepped in and saw its quaint little courtyard and pool. Our room was on the first floor, up a winding staircase, and done up in Moroccan style, but with an air-conditioner tucked away discreetly. That night, we had the most delicious dinner we 've had in Morocco, whipped up by Younis, who does the night shifts.

We spent quite a bit of time in the riad, relaxing in the courtyard or the open terrace over cups of mint tea, but the riad was very close (2 - 3 minutes walk) from the souks and the Jemaa el Fnaa at the heart of the old city. In spite of this, it was quiet and peaceful, and we slept well in the comfortable room.

The best thing about the riad, however, are the staff - Younis, Adil and the girls, Muna and Scheherazade - always smiling and cheerful, ready to help with advice or things like arranging trips to the hammam, or a pot of mint tea (I love the stuff!). A big thank you to all of them, and we would definitely recommend the Abaka to anyone visiting Marrakech.

Excellent location and very friendly hosts. Lovely little riad close to all the sites. Good breakfast and nice roof terrace away from the bustle of Marrakech. We had the two ground floor rooms which meant we also could use the entire groundfloor as a bit of an extension to them. Early waking guests meant there was a bit of noise in the morning but that is probably always the case when the rooms are around a central courtyard.

Room Tip: Ground floor rooms excellent for families - you have the whole courtyard to use as an extension. The only drawback is noise in the morning from people breakfasting earlier that you!

riad abaka rocks!!!!A true oasis in the middle of the action of Marrakech....quiet and tranquil with the best staff on the planet....staff super helpful and accommodating....rooms large and well appointed but the gem is the rooftop in the evening for reflection of the days events....when in doubt, eat in as the food and service is awesome and great value...p.s. ask for driver P/U at the airport as it can be hard to find for the uninitiated...

Room Tip: room 6 & 7 good options

We had a lovely 3 night stay in this delightful riad. Staff were so pleasant and helpful, everything comfortable and clean. Beautiful breakfasts served on the roof terrace, and we had a evening meal out there as well which was amazing. So convenient for the square and the souk, where we eat several times. Would certainly recommend this to anyone.

It is rare when a property combines affordability and the necessary sensibilities to accommodate business travelers. Riad Abaka has it all -- from free wifi and breakfast to tastefully decorated and comfortable rooms and a great location. The staff was nothing short of amazing. My only regret was in not staying longer.
