It will be cold but not too cold. temperature durin gthe day is arouind 15 -20 ; dat night it gets down to 5 . have some warm clothes on you if you decide to visit

Otherwise wait until March or April, but then it's the peak season and everything tends to be expensive

cheers

anytime you go is a good time.

i would make sure your hotel has heat, and i would pack some layered clothing in case it is cold.

this past frb i was there and it was freezing each day, the year before was short sleeve weather.

so best to have a layered thing going so you cna keep warm.

any other questions you can email me at

Thanks for the info :-)

Can you recommend a few good hotels and the area(s) to stay in? I will be taking my mum with me, and she would probably prefer to take it a bit easy - how many days (minimum) would you suggest is enough to get a flavour of the place?

i would deff. tell you to book into grand hotel tazi.

nice rooms tv's with 2 english channels and a movie channel with english and arabic subtitles.

it also have a rather basic bar and restaurant down stairs.

please don't eat dinner there .

it is too over priced.

you are most likely looking at 35 or 40 euro for the 2 of you.

you can do a search and get thier number, and since i would guess you speak french you can call and make reservations.

if this is too much email me and i can give you a few others i like to use.

Check the reports on tripadvisor before you book any hotel, some are not as grand as they sound
