The Club Albatros (previously know as the Royal Mirage) was a great location and base for our 5 night break in Marrakech. Our room was clean, spacious and over looked the pool with a brilliant view of the Atlas Mountains. The food was OK but you pay for what you get. We could not fault the pool area although it was very quite at this time of year and sun beds were plentiful (the pool was freezing)!
The point is the hotel was great for visiting and enjoying Marrakech, you can walk or pay less than £5 for a taxi into the Medina.
Take the red bus tour to really get your bearings and decide which areas you really want to explore. You can hop on and hop off over 2 days for £12 per person.
The Kosi Bar in Place des Ferblantiers was a brilliant find, we watched the sunset and the storks come in to roost on the Median walls whilst enjoying a lovely glass of wine. We ate at the Yacout which was out of this world if you are willing to pay over £100 for two (including wine) but it was worth it but make sure you get there before sunset and you will need to go by taxi and get picked up as you will never find it yourself . It is a 5 course meal plus wine - no menu and your bill is just the bottom line. As a contrast eating in the square for £10 for two was brilliant.
