As a 'Hammam virgin', I didn't really know what to expect, but this was a fun and worthwhile experience. Blokes strip off completely, apart from a little wrap around skirt thing, so be warned - you should not be squeamish about being near-on naked. First of all, one of the attendants washes you down with some black soap, and then you go into the sauna for 10-15 minutes. Afterwards, you are taken to have a quick shower, and then the treatment begins! You lie down on a table where you are scrubbed to within an inch of your life (gommage), with barely a square inch being left unscrubbed (again, having any hang-ups about getting up close and personal will seriously interfere with the experience!). After a complete layer of skin has been shred, another shower follows, followed by a massage. The package costs 270 dh (about £30), and ends with a glass of mint tea in a peaceful sitting area, which is good as I could hardly stand afterwards, and slept for 3 hrs when I got back to my hotel! I would definitely go back again if I visited Marrekech
