Excellent Hotel and location

Had my second visit to Le Meridien and was thrilled to see that [...] was there to greet us again. He made such a difference to us 2 women on our own, calling taxis for us and advising us how much it should be (its easy to be conned by some taxi drivers). On our return one evening he interveened when I foolishly was paying the driver with Euros instead of Dirhams. He is such an asset to the hotel and was the reason we returned. The hotel is in a great location, out of the sometimes manic centre but just a £2 taxi ride away. The pool area is great with ample sunbeds even at busy times and the breakfasts set us up for the day. I am sure we will be staying there again

Interesting Trip/Nice Hotel

Our trip to Morocco was pretty good and the hotel was very nice. The grounds are beautiful and the location is decent. We actually walked to the hotel from the airport, which turned out to be about 5 miles (don't trust the perspective of the maps in this regard). The city center and the Medina are both within walking range (about a 30 minute walk to both), but you need to remember to take water (it's easy to forget you're in the desert when you're surrounded by rose gardens and manicured landscaping of the various hotels). The staff at the hotel were all very nice, polite, and accomodating, helping to get us what we needed. It is also important to remember that it's a very different culture, and the staff may not know to tell you something, such as: 1. If you take a tour, be aware that you will be expected to tip everyone between 30-100 Durham, which is about $3.75-13.00 US (for us, it was the driver and guide, which we expected, and the lady who gave us the unexpected tour of her house and the guys who led the mules we never intended to ride). It's important to understand this and take enough money to avoid any awkward situations. Tourism is their income, so they will do these little tricks to make money without seeing it as a "trick." Otherwise, tipping is more European (5-10%) than US (15-20%), so you can keep that in mind when eating at restaurants, etc. 2. Most of what you'll encounter in the Medina is not authentic (i.e., "made in China"). We ended up buying our souvenirs in the airport so that we could get something more unique. 3. If you do buy anything in the Medina, keep in mind that the culture is to negotiate. Offer no more than 40% of what they're asking and walk away if they don't give it to you. They will either call you back or the next guy selling the same thing will give it to you for the price you want. The same is true with taxis. It's about 20-30 Durham to get around the city and 60 to get to and from the airport, but make sure that the driver agrees to the price before getting in the car. You can walk away from any driver who acts affronted at your offer (they will) because the next driver is likely to accept. 4. Be conservative in your dress - it is a Muslim country after all. Belly shirts and shorts are likely to get you stared at and harrassed, though it's fine if you don't intend to leave the hotel complex. Hope this helped...have fun!

A surprisingly pleasant stay

This hotel is great for the price. It has a beautiful and mature garden, with very efficient staff. The location is good, if you want to stay near the Medina, but not in it. The rooms although old, are very simple, i.e. not cluttered, and clean, which I like. But don't worry, the bathrooms are renovated and sparkling clean. The concierge, Yousef, was great and extremely helpful. We spent 4 nights at this hotel and 3 nights at a top resort in Palmeraie. I have to say that we were sorry to leave Le Meridien behind. We liked it better than our expensive resort. The one negative of the hotel is the unheated pool. My children were not able to use the pool, though the weather was warm during the day.

Shopping tip: Short drive from hotel

Prices are completely subjective, even in the best stores. you will find great items at the Souks. However, make sure to bargain the price to 1/10th and then walk away. The only way to get the real deal. Hanna tattoos at the Jema al fnaa should cost about 15 dirhams, about $2, not more. I know of a few women who paid around 20 Euros.
