Fodor's Expert Review Dar Alfarah

58, Derb Touareg, Ksibat N'Hass, Marrakesh, Marrakech-Tensift-Al Haouz, Morocco

This authentic riad near the Badi Palace in the Mellah quarter was renovated and restyled in 2015 by new French owners. The rooms, arranged over two floors, look inward to the central patio pool and terrace, which is shaded by jasmine, bougainvillea, and banana palms; some suites are large enough to accommodate extra beds making this a convenient family base for exploring. Traditional features remain such as zellige tiled detailing and bathrooms finished in tadelakt. Request meals on the secluded terrace, which has great views of Marrakesh and the High Atlas.
