After being met at the airport, and then delivered to the corner near to the riad, Gilles then walked me to the riad. Great location, lovely owners, amazing breakfast, beautiful room. It is just a jewel.

We are back at the Riad Abaca Badra once again enjoying Gilles and Dominique's (GD for brevity from now on) hospitality, aided by their wonderful staff Soumia, Fathia and Khadija. We have stayed in riads and hotels elsewhere in Morocco but nowhere can approach the joys of being here. Actually I can't think of anywhere we have stayed that comes...

Gilles and Dominique, the proprietors here, go out of their way to make you feel at home in this cozy riad on a quiet derb between Dar el-Basha and Bab Doukala. The location is convenient to everything you could possibly want: airport, bus station, Jemaa al-Fnaa, Guéliz, souks, etc. Our room, Ouarzazate, was spacious and well-appointed. There's plenty of common...

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.

Giles and his wife were fantastic hosts!
