Knowledge is key!

Posted Aug 17, 2016
When you get to the old town of Marrakech knowledge is key - without it you are nowhere! From the moment to walk in to the moment you walk out you are well looked after and informed - excellent - a must book

Best Riad in the city, this is the place to stay.

Posted May 27, 2016
Pros: The staff is amazing and are available day and night, the Riad is walking distance to all areas of the old city, the rooms are very clean and quiet.
Cons: Nothing - everything was perfect.
Location: With the exception of two day-tours to Essaouira and Imlil we spent our week in the old city. It is in a very safe area and easy to walk to all sites.
The combination of location, staff, facilities and ambiance blend together to provide a rich and rewarding holiday experience. From the moment you arrive until you depart, the Riad organizes everything to meet your expectations, from personal guides to taxis and dinners around town, the team made our time in Marrakech unforgettable. Make sure to reserve one night for dinner at the Riad - it was not only the best dinner in Marrakech, it may just be our best dinner we've experienced in our travels. The Riad scheduled a spa day for our family and like everything else, it exceeded our expectations. Also, the Riad offers group or personal tours that will extend your experience from the beach to the Sahara. We scheduled two tours and found our personal guide to be extremely knowledgeable, making certain we saw everything possible in each day's tour. Each of the Riad's staff members were like family, if we are able to return to Marrakech we would not consider any other location besides Riad Al Badia. Finally, it was common to see tourists wandering the streets of the old city towing their luggage while looking for their hotels - save yourself that frustration and let the hotel schedule a pickup and dropoff for you from the airport or train station.

Dear Sir, I thank you ever so much for such a tribute. It was a great pleasure for all of us to meet you and an absolute delight to receive you these few days. Your kindness with everyone of us, your smiles, your interest in Marrakech and South of Morocco as your knowledge of the oriental culture all were much appreciated. Thank you to the three of you, you are a fabulous family and you are home at Riad Al Badia, anytime Samira will be very happy to make you discover more of the "Moroccan Home" cuisine. Thank you ever so much and see you very soon.

Small Palace in Marrakech

Posted May 14, 2016
Pros: Quiet, beautifully furnished, well maintained.
Cons: Laundry charge was very high.
Location: Badi and Bahia Palaces, Saadi Tombs, souks.
The riad is located a 15 minute stroll from Jemaa el Fna square, a little hard to find on the first visit, but OK afterwards. The staff are very gracious and accommodating, tea and treats when you arrive, directions, taxis, even a walking tour of the neighbourhood.

Wonderful Experience

Posted Mar 5, 2016
My stay at Riad al Badia was just lovely. The hotel is centrally located to various attractions, the room was very comfortable, and the staff are extremely attentive/helpful. All of my excursions were booked via the hotel, and I really didn't have to lift a finger for anything. Moreover, the food is really superb...each morning there was a breakfast that was homemade with completely fresh ingredients. The dinners consisted of three courses, and were just delicious. I truly enjoyed my time in Marrakech and at the Riad. The staff really catered to all my needs, and I will never forget my time there.

Una perla escondida en la Medina

Posted Feb 29, 2016 on Hotels
Laurent es un tipo muy educado y discreto que nos ayudó mucho más que lo que se espera de un hotelero, organizandonos transporte, comidas, enlaces con nuestro siguiente hotel de destino etc. Quisimos volver al cabo de unos dias en Essauira pero ya tenía overbooking. No os asusteis por la fachada o el camino de llegada, lo de dentro es una perla escondida en la Medina.

Estimado Señor, Muchas gracias por este comentario muy agradable. Era un placer recibirles para empezar su viaje a Marrueccos y lamentamos que no teniamos mas disponibilidad cuando han regresado a Marrakech, la proxima vez ojala, con una reserva un poco mas antes. Quedamos un recuerdo muy suave de su estancia corta al Riad Al Badia y esperamos todos poder recibirles de nuevos pronto. Gracias por todo y hasta muy pronto

Brilliant!

Posted Feb 20, 2016
I stayed at the Riad Al Badia with my wife and daughters (6 and 2 years old) from 15/02/16 for 4 nights and we stayed in the junior suite. I initially choose the Riad Al Badia due to their amazing Trip Advisor reviews and having read them and having now stayed at the Riad Al Badia I can say that they are all true and the Riad Al Badia is outstanding. I emailed the Riad a week before our stay with a number of questions including airport transfers and acquiring a local SIM card and I received a quick reply put to rest any concerns I had. We arrived in the evening and were greeted by the Riad driver who took us to the Riad, where Mohammed was a lready stood on the main road waiting for us. He took us to the Riad (which is a very short walk to from the main road) and our luggage was taken to our room. Mohammed gave us a map and told us where the main sights were and how best to get to them all. We then went out our room, which was immaculate and we freshened up before Mohammed took us for a walk and showed us to the main junction from where you could either walk or take a taxi to the main attractions. There is also exchange bureau there where they will give you a better exchange rate with the Riad’s business card (Airport was £1=Dh13.4 where at this place was £1=Dh13.7). The Riad is very easy to find and having caught a number of taxis I did not find a single taxi driver who did not know how to find the Riad but I would recommend agreeing a price before you get in and a
