Le merdien Nifis

I have recently booked a two week stay at the Le Merdien Hotel in Marrakesh for the last two weeks in September. After reading the reviews I am now worried is this hotel really that bad. We were looking for a five star hotel with pool and other other amenities.

Also it may be ramadan when we go will this affect our holiday in any way?

What is considered appropriate for women to wear in marrakesh so I know what to pack?

Thanks

I dont think the Meridien Nfis is that bad. the last time I was there the hotel had been renovated. the pool is really splendid and the hotel has a beautiful garden and is located on a quiet boulevard. Because of Ramadan the rhythm of life changes in Marrakech. So most cafes and small shops close until late in the morning. even the souks and the medina are not really busy until the afternoon. As for clothes I think you need to wear decent clothes, not necessarily ankle length blouses. What you should, however, avoid, If you don't want to offend the locals, is somke or drink in public. Otherwise Marakech is interesting in the evenings, as people go out after they break the fast.

need more help feel free to ask

cheers

Thanks for the info are the bars and restaurants still open for tourists during ramadan? Also do women need to be completely covered or can you get away with knee lenght shorts and skirts - just thinking about the hot weather!
