Am I being too ambitious?!

I am going to Marrakech on 14th April, had originally planned to spend 4 nights there but keep reading about all the other surrounding areas and am thinking about changing my itinerary!

I am now planning to spend my first 2 nights in Marrakech, 1 night in Essaouira and am considering spending a day and my final night somewhere around the Atlas mountains (possibly Imlil). I'm not doing any trekking or hiking but just want to take in the views which look amazing, I don't mind just chilling out and eating! I have a 5pm flight so have plenty of time to get back to the airport after my night there, I've been checking out hotels which do transfers. Does this look like a sensible itinerary or should I calm it down a tad?! If anyone has tried to do something similar then would be great to hear from you.

P.S. If anyone is around Marrakech from 14th-16th April then I would be very happy to meet up for a mint tea and cake!

Calm down a tad I'd say. Gracious, you are only here for 4 nights, you could spend the whole time in Marrakech and barely scratch the surface. If you have to see somewhere else I'd say visit the mountains as a day trip and plan to come back to explore more of Morocco when you have more time.

You have done exactly what we did lol!

What started as a 3 night city break has now turned into a 5 night holiday!

on our first trip, we spent ten nights in marrakech, with only one day-trip outside, from which i could not wait to get back! in four days, you will barely scratch the surface of this wonderful city. [in my opinion, of course.]

I've decided to leave the mountains for another trip and spend a proper amount of time there, so 3 nights in Marrakesh and 1 night in Essaouira it is!

Thanks all.
