Definitely get an airport transfer or arrange to meet Youssef by the square as...

We spent a wonderful time in here, amazing entrée to Morocco for us. Staff was friendly and helpful. It's in great location, just a short walk from Jaama and not that hard to find after one or two trips. The offer of pickup from airport was really appreciated by us. Even though it's bit more than the price you should...

This riad is lovely in that it is charming and authentic! It is also very clean and has a lovely atmosphere. The breakfasts were also really good and the location was perfect...right in the medina and close to everything. What made it special was Youssef...kind, relaxed and pleasant host, and always wanting to help. In addition, there is also a...

My boyfriend and I only intended to stay at Riad Al Faras for a few days but actually ended up returning there towards the end of our trip- we loved it!
