I loved it!! I was supposed to be in there for 2 weeks but loved it so much I ended up living and travelling in Maroc for 4 months!!

I do, however, know loads of people who hate it... give it another chance as it is a place that grows on you!

I would have thought that you couldnt get better than The Palmairaie Palace Hotel!Apart from the one that Chruchill stayed at which is being renovated and will cost £500 to £800 a night!

Still..........crikey it was like that when I was last there, 24 years ago! Nice people though, you should have headed up to the Atlas mountains.... stunning!

I worked in morocco for 6weeks back in 2002, I thought the people were extremely friendly and helpful (expecting a reward no doubt for there time)
I thoroughly enjoyed the atlas mountains and thought the food was nice where ever we ate.
You do get a bit harassed but thats the same in any poor country Ive ever been to. We bought fans for our room which were a god send. The last place we went was marrakech which was an eye opener but the world would be boring if it was the same everywhere. :)
I will definately take my kids one day just so they can experience it.
