Hi,

Most people bring a small amount of cash to change and then use the ATM's as and when they want more. Read the banks and money article on the right in the top questions box for lots of useful information.

Also you can't get Moroccan Dihrams until you are in the country, so you can only take sterling then change it once there. The airport ones only change up cash for cash which we found out ! If your going all inclusive then I wouldn't take a lot unless you plan on lots of trips out and buying lots of gifts !

You can get dirhams before arrival but the exchange rate will be terrible.

Gifts and things are very cheap there - you could buy a real leather handbag for about £8-£10 - day trips and excursions etc can be haggled for - do not be afraid to ask for discounts. I do think Marrakech is very reasonable - one thing I would recommend with children is to use a hotel pool - you can google riad pools" or "hotel pools in Marrakech" and most will allow you to go in and use the pool and have lunch for a small fee. For children, id suggest one called the Riad Clementina (or similar) - we used it and the pool is big and it was really quiet, so no danger of annoying the other guests with children!
