What an unbelievable little gem of calm and comfort in a crazy and unexplainable city.
The Riad Al Badia is the most beautiful accommodation we have stayed in and we have been very fortunate with good accommodation in the many places we have visited. What sets it apart is the unparalleled service provided by Laurent and his team. Their attention to detail and willingness to cater for your every need makes Al Badia a special place. From walking side by side with us for our first venture out into the main city to laying on a wonderful breakfast spread each morning in the most romantic setting and at a time of our choosing, we could not find fault with this Riad.
As for Marrakech, difficult to describe, at first slightly unnerving but you very quickly warm to the people as they do to you. Traffic is a sight to behold and at times you feel like death is imminent but you quite quickly get used to this also. If your palate is a tad uncultured, as ours would be, food outlets will not come easy but you can definitely get by (I must shamefully admit we went McDonalds in the new city). Some of the main sights are a little underwhelming but the experience of the Jemma Al Fna square and the souks easily make up for this.
All in all this is a very worthwhile trip even just to experience the hospitality of the Al Badia.
