In may 2007 my partner and I booked a last minute holiday to Marrakesh with Thomas cook. The holiday started off really bad. First problem was that there was no one there to collect us from the hotel after some very costly calls back to the UK we eventually got a driver to drop us at Ayoub hotel. When we arrived it got even worse... we were not even booked into the hotel. After more costly phone calls to the U.K they managed to get the hotel to let us stay for one night. When taken to our room we were given two single beds when we had originally booked a 1 x king size room. The room was very basic and the bathroom was not very pleasent. I must admit i was dying to jump in the pool though. The man on the reception was helpful but we decided not to stay as we had to find a hotel to stay in for our remaining nights there. We ended up staying at the Le Tafilalet which was 4* and only £5 dearer then the Ayoub hotel. This hotel was brilliant.. comfy, nicely decorated and great staff.
I would recommend The Tafilalet hotel rather then Ayoub hotel although Ayoub was not that bad but for an extra £5 you can alot nicer.
