Me and my girlfriend have just returned from a four night stay at Riad Al Badia.
We opted to contact the Riad in advance and were offered an upgrade to the Turquoise room and took advantage of a transfer arranged by them. I am glad we did as any traveller new to Marrakech will know finding places can be a challenge especially after a flight.
From the out set we were warmly welcomed by Mostapha & Laurent with complimentary mint tea and house petit fours. They talked us through Marrakech and even took us out on a short orientation walk - again an added touch not to be declined.
We were then shown to our room which was lovely with some nice welcome touches including complimentary ice cold water. The room was a good size with ample storage space and essential air conditioning (especially in 40c heat!!).
Throughout our stay all the team could not have been more helpful and genuinely interested in our days itinerary. Often suggesting the best times to visit certain attractions and making reservations on our behalf. This included a trips to the Atlas Moutains & a Hammam at Les Bains de Marrakech - neither to be missed.
The continental breakfast included was delicious (see pic) and was varied slightly each morning and plenty to fuel anyone for a day sight seeing.
The Riad is located in the South of the Medina still making everything within the Medina accessible on foot. Also nearby are Kosy Bar and Le Tanjia (both had good food and served alcohol but at a price).
We ended our stay with a meal at the Riad which I would recommend doing at least once. It was not only delicious but good value for money and we were made to feel at home (a running theme throughout our stay).
I would recommend this Riad highly and during our stay there were several other couples and families with small children who equally appeared happy with their choice of Riad.
Thanks again to all the staff... Samira, Hanane, Fatima, Laïla, Jalil, Mostapha & Laurent!
