It has a cosy atmosphere with several small lounges to play board games. Gilles and Dominique, the owners of the Riad, are really helpful and make sure that you have a fantastic time in Marrakech. The breakfast...

We have just returned from the Abaca Badra for the forth time and we are already planning our next trip. This really is a fantastic place to stay when in Marrakech. The warm friendly greeting from the hosts Gilles and Dominique make you feel at home from the outset. The Riad is stylish, comfortable and spotlessly clean. As an added...

Dominque & Gilles are fantastic hosts who care deeply about their guests - they provide useful "survival" tips for Marrakech, provide water for your day so that you're not dehydrated, assisted us in booking tours, and offered a small gift to remember the stay! They gave us great restaurant recommendations, and directed us to the best FX shop (which was...

We chose this Riad thanks to a great review on tripadvisor and we were not disappointed, it was everything we wanted and much more. The house was immediately welcoming and our room was divine with the welcoming fresh rose petals and fruit. The roof terrace was my quiet spot for reading and relaxing. But of course the star attraction were...

Giles and his wife were fantastic hosts! We were upgraded to a better room when we arrived and Giles immediately offered to take me to a shop that he has a relationship with to get a Moroccan teapot at a price that was far lower than we were able to get anywhere else. The included breakfast was spectacular and a...

Could not have asked for a better place to stay in Marrakech. Dominique and Gilles are fantastic hosts - our room was very comfortable and breakfast was delicious. They helped us navigate Marrakech and provided recommendations about restaurants and shopping alike. The location is wonderful, and I could not have been happier with the choice.

I was nervous enough about Moroccan culture shock, but even more so with a sprawling and alien city like Marrakech. I don't do well in large urban environments, but I simply had to experience this strange new world -- therefore, I needed the perfect oasis in this North African metropolis. And let me say that I couldn't have asked for...

Dominique and Gilles are the most outstanding hosts I can recall in a long long time. Look no further and book this place for your visit to Marakech. Location is excellent.
