We were looking for a simple comfortable place to stay for our first few days in Morocco before setting off on a three week vacation in Morocco. We selected Riad Al Faras because it had air conditioning and a pool and the forecast was for extremely hot weather in Marrakech. We weren't all that interested in luxury or a full service riad. Riad Al Faras exceeded expectations on most every count. Breakfast was excellent, common spaces were immaculate, and service was very pleasant. My one piece of advice is don't try to find this place on your own. You won't. Resign yourself to paying some kid in the Square to guide you there or, better yet, arrange for Yousef to pick you up. You will save yourself considerable time and frustration. Once you have found it, getting to and from the Square is quite easy.
