I went with a friend for a girly holiday. It was our first time to Morocco and I can honestly say every one is very friendly. If you are girls going without any lads though the locals can get a bit too friendly and it can be a bit intimidating but if you just laugh it off and try to be polite as you walk away from them you are generally OK. One criticism I would have is that on the hotel grounds there are a lot of stalls and on our first day we came in to them lined up all down the side of the pool so you physically couldn't get to your room if you are by the main reception without being hassled. It got very tedious very quickly because no matter how many times you tell them that you don't want to buy anything they don't seem to get the picture. The entertainment is questionable. I saw one show that I thought was any good and the rest was mediocre if that. The shows that the entertainers put on for example there was one called broadway classics and it basically consisted of the entertainers prancing around on the stage not really dancing and miming to songs when they don't know the words. So it looked awful and my friend and I often ended up going to the bar to use the internet rather than watch them. Beware when you get to the airport of the men trying to help you with your bags. They try and snatch them away from you and drag it about 3 meters to the coach and then want a tip for doing so, when you get your purse out they also see what you have in it and try to get you to give them everything you got. I saw in his hand that some one had been conned into giving him a £10 note. The entertainers can often be rude as well if you are not wanting to take part in their activities so if you are not that sort of person its probably best to sit around the quiet pool which has a bar there where you can get drinks. The restaurants are a good selection and I can honestly say I had no issue with the food. The whole hotel is in very clean condition. I woke up at 6am one time to the sound of the workers scrubbing the floor. Also being a closed currency I would watch out when you get to the airport to return to your country of origin. The exchange desk will only change a minimum of 150 Dirhams and also will not give you coins or exchange the coins for you. So if you have less than this (which my friend and I did seeing as we went all inclusive and so did not need much money) they will not exchange it which was not communicated to us by thomson reps or any one for that matter and we found out only after standing in a queue for 30 mins. So they don't want you to take their money out of the country but they don't want to exchange it for you either which means you may aswell throw it in the bin after because that's all it is worth to you. We ended up giving it to the thomson rep who must do quite well out of it because that's what many people ended up doing. Also when the people on the stalls tell you that they made the products them self this is definitely not true especially with the paintings it is almost like they have had a paint by number sheet given to them because they have the same paintings different colours. That also goes for pretty much every product they sell its all the same in every shop or stall. Other than those few points the hotel was in general cleanliness you could smell the cleaning products first thing in the morning when nothing is open and most of the people are very friendly which is one thing that I was warned against. If you go into marakech it is a good thing to make sure you are covered up to the neck and shoulders and down to the knees if you are female because you will get hassled by the locals throwing disgusting comments at you which a couple of girls that were walking around found out.
