Before selecting to stay at Riad Al Badia, we also looked at other Riad's in Marrakech which were slightly cheaper although due to the glowing reviews, we made the decision to spend a little extra and book here.
It absolutely did not disappoint, whilst the Riad itself is beautiful, Laurent and his staff were incredible throughout our stay, continually going above and beyond for us.
On arrival, Laurent sat with us for 15-20 minutes, giving us a great overview of the local area, places he recommended that we visit and what to expect in and around Marrakech. This made us instantly feel at home.
When we were looking to arrange a quad biking experience in the area, we needed to borrow a phone to book in advance and arrange pickup. When we asked at the Riad to borrow a phone to make a call, Laurent himself called on our behalf and made sure that the driver knew the best location to collect us.
Prior to our final day, we asked about when check-out time at the property was and if we would be able to leave our luggage as we had an evening flight out of Marrakech. Instead, we were allowed to keep the room until our departure so that we had additional time to pack and shower before leaving.
Overall, I do not think we could have had a better experience by staying anywhere else in Marrakech and I would love to return one day.
