The sun beats down even in winter on Marrakech, the intoxicating city at the heart of Morocco, making holidays here popular throughout the year. Average daytime temperatures linger at around 20C in December – perfect weather for browsing market stalls and haggling for unique Christmas gifts. There is a demand for hotels year-round in Marrakech, so book as far in advance of your trip as you can to secure your favoured hotel at the best price. You can stay in high-end accommodation in one of the city’s many brand hotels, or opt for a more authentic experience in a riad, or traditional townhouse. Some riad owners have spared no expense in creating havens of style featuring swimming pools and beautiful courtyards. But if your budget is tight, there are many mid-range and budget hotels available too.
In parts as romantic as the movie of the same name, Casablanca is a smooth blend of French style, Art-Deco gorgeousness and authentic Moroccan flavours. The European vibe runs into the accommodation scene here, with many hotels that will feel instantly familiar. Chain brands run hotels in Casablanca, so if you have a penchant for Sofitel, Hyatt Regency, Best Western or Barcelo (among others), you won’t be disappointed.
More well-known international hotel brands offer rooms in Rabat (Sofitel, Mercure and Ibis, to name a few). Many hotels in this scintillating city offer luxurious spa services, swimming pools and soothing gardens where fountains trickle. Boutique B&Bs are also popping up alongside traditional guesthouses that offer more of an insight into everyday Moroccan life.
We can also show you hotels in Tangier (also spelled Tangiers) and Fez, as well as holidays in coastal destinations such as Agadir and Essaouira.

Top five attractions
The Medina of Marrakech
The city’s old Islamic capital comprises the main square, Djemaa El-Fna, which acts as the central hub for Marrakech’s maze of alleys and souks.
This stunning building in Marrakech is a perfect example of 19th-century Moroccan architecture. The lavish palace is also surrounded by acres of lush gardens.
Rick’s Café, Casablanca
Opened in 2004, Rick’s Café is a doff of the fedora to the bar made famous by Humphrey Bogart and Ingrid Bergman in the classic film “Casablanca”. Its centrepiece is a 1930s piano manned by a busy musician who never tires of being requested to play “As Time Goes By”.
The Old City of Fez
The medieval capital of Morocco and home to the world’s oldest university, Fez is a labyrinth of ancient streets and markets where you can quickly get lost in Morocco’s history and museums.
The Oudayas Kasbah sits inside the 900-year-old walls of the ancient fortress in Rabat and is the place to really get a feeling for old Morocco.
