Travelled to Marrakech (Morocco) Janaury 2014. Went for 4 days, direct flight 2 hours fight from where I live (Gran Canaria, Spain), with Binter airlines.
If your from an EU country, you surely don’t need any Visa, however, you have to fill in the immigration paper, and there is no pen there for tourists to write, so BRING A PEN WITH YOU, otherwise you can get stuck 30min asking others for a bloody pen.
There isn’t much to see, the main attraction is the Jemaa el Fna square, inside the Medina (old town). It reminded me of India, you have small markets around, people selling literally all kind of stuff! It was annoying, all sellers are very very very very harassing.
Visited Jardins Majorelle, what a waste of time, don’t bother visiting it!
If your travelling with your couple, you should stay in a Riad, visited one inside the Medina, and it was beautiful. Otherwise stay one of the hotels which are 15min walking from Medina, eg. Sofitel, Novotel, Kenzi Farah…
The new area (Gueliz) was a bit dull, not much to see either.
Went to Bahia Palace, it was ok, worth visit.
Jewish area was nothing special.
Did the open air bus tour, which I recommend, as you see pretty much of the city, there is 1 day or 2 days pass, go for the 1 day one.
Recommend visiting La Mamounia Hotel, possibly the most beautiful hotel in the world!
Food was not too good, they have two main dishes, cuscus and tajin, both can be either chicken, beef or lamb. Usually the lamb is the tastiest, but was disappointed with the country’s cuisine. They always give bread with the food, I thought it was the nicest bread I’ve ever had.
Did not go clubbing, but seemed like there is a good vibe on weekends, specially in Summer. Pachá, Nikki Beach, Triple 5, Ushuaia… seems like there are many youngsters overthere.
When you check-out from your hotel, there is a tourist tax and some other tax, beware, its was something like 15 euros in total per person per day.
The interior designs of buildings was spectacular, arabic designs in my opinion are above any other.
Can’t remember seeing any white building, most of them are browny-salmon color.
Saw many men cutting their toe nails with a nail cutter in middle of the street, was disgusting lol
Overall, I would recommend visiting Marrakech only if your somewhere in Spain, not worth if its more than 2.5 hours flight honestly. 3 days are enough, if you want to see the other towns outside Marrakech then 5 days should be good.
