“Best One”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 30, 2013

Riad Bamaga was the best choice for our first stay in Marrakech. The rooms are really lovely and nicely decorated. Since we arrived late at night at the airport we were happy about Colette's offer that a driver is picking us up at the airport. Colette is really helpful and has good recommendations how to best explore the city. Also the staff is very charming and the breakfast on the rooftop terrace was always a good start of the day. Nice, quite neighborhood, not far from the souks and the main square.

We stayed for three nights and loved it here. Before and during our stay Colette could not have been more helpful and charming - for example, emails were answered very promptly and when we arrived she spent a lot of time with us explaining maps and giving advice. The staff and driver are fantastic also. The room was lovely and breakfast on the terrace a great way to start the day. The riad is about 20 mins walk from the main square but we came to really enjoy the familiar stroll through the souk. We cannot speak highly enough of this riad.
One warning: we were caught out by the time change on April 29th (in 2013) and arrived an hour late for our taxi back to the airport. I don't remember seeing a clock anywhere in Marrakech or in Imlil where we had been staying so we had missed it completely! Everyone was so polite and hadn't liked to tell us that we had been late for our breakfast, the drive back to Marrakech....!

My partner, daughter and I recently had an enjoyable two night stay here. We arranged in advance with Collette for a pick up at the airport as others have recommended and we were guided to the door of the Riad by the driver. We also arranged to have dinner in the Riad due to our late arrival, the food was excellent. We had a three bed room which was very comfortable. Collette took the time to sit with us to give advice on how to make the most of our brief visit and provided maps etc. The roof terrace is lovely, for breakfast in the morning and drinks in the evening.

Riad Bamaga is just the place to stay if you go to Marrakech. Friendly staff, excelent service and a stones throw away from Jemaa El Fna. The hostess Mrs Collete makes sure you have everything you need upon arrival in Marocco. She can organize collection from the Airport, provides you with maps and advice so you can enjoy your stay without stress and even organizes trips for you. I spent 4 nights there and never had to lock my bedroom. It`s like a familly. Each room has a small safe where we can keep our valuables. I thouroughly recommend this Riad right in the heart of the Medina. Well decorated with the typical Marrakech decorations.

Room Tip: you can contact the Riad before hand to organize all your travel and acomodation arrangements.

Having decided to stay at Riad Bamaga due to the reviews on trip advisor, I went with high expectations. I was not to be dissapointed. My partner and I had such an amazing time within the city and that was in no small part due to Colette and Jean-Jacque. The Riad itself is a tranquil escape from the hustle and bustle that you want from Marrakech. It is well styled and has everything that you would want from a Riad in Morocco. the food served up for breakfast and main meals was outstanding and we ate there on several occassions. What really sets it apart are the hosts. the advice that we were given was incredibley helpful and informative. Even with guide books, the local knowledge was priceless. There is a wonderful atmosphere within the Riad and I would certainly choose to stay there again. A big thank you to Colette, Jean-Jacque and the rest of the staff.

I really enjoyed staying in this riad with its green courtyard, huge terrace and big rooms made our stay very comfortable. Attentive and helpfull staff was always there when you need it, to help with directions, advise or book a taxi.
I particulary liked our big room with livingroom area, big bathroom and ac.

I greatly enjoyed staying in this riad. Not only the beautiful rooms, but what made it special was the warm welcome, help and care of the owners, Colette and Jean-Jacques. They made our stay to a delightful and it felt really like coming home. French charm, Arabic hospitality and refined taste : all in one. In the morning breakfast on the roof terrace with little colourful birds singing and the whispering of a fountain in the court yard. Hard to imagine a better place to start and come back to in Marrakech. Highly recommended !
