Palmeraie, Marrakech, Morocco
Brand new hotel
Mini club and splash area
Marrakech is home to famous souks, Atlas mountains and top-level grub. Make it an all-inclusive family shindig and you've got a pretty good jolly on your hands, that's for sure. It's scorchin' hot all year round, so good if you're looking to get away off-season and it's also ideal for couples looking for a bit of spice in their life or families with kids in tow. Meals are sorted all day, drinks by the pool too, and you can even go out and about and explore. An all-inclusive holiday in Marrakech throws up a proper diverse mix, making it a spot-on destination.
Marrakech may not have a beach but what it does have is a load of hotels that prove to be popular year on year to make up for it. There's no wonder people keep on booking up spots at these hotels 'cause, not only do we have some top deals on them, they're stacked full of top stuff, like big ol' swimming pools and highly rated restaurants.
If you're looking for cheap holidays where you can kick back and have some quality vitamin-D time but the kids can run riot and burn off all the sugar they wolfed down at breakfast, then Marrakech is spot on. It's home to some top hotels that are ideal for the whole gang.
We're talking dinner in Riad (a typical Moroccan-style house) like setting, a drink on a rooftop bar watching the sunset or some all-out, adventure-filled exploring in the Atlas mountains. Whatever your bag, Marrakech has you covered and then some. Combine this with some pool days where you can grab a beer (tip: get a Casablanca, the local lager) at any time and have all your meals sorted, too. All-inclusive couples holidays? We've mastered them.
The best time to visit is in the Spring or the Autumn because you'll avoid uncomfortable levels of heat but still have great weather and scorchin' hot temperatures.
Marrakech isn't overly expensive, no. Just like most cities, you'll find a wide range of prices depending on the restaurant and its location. You can get some great goodies for a great price at the Souks, which are normally handmade pieces too!
Plus, if you go all-inclusive, then you need not worry 'cause meals and drinks are included at the hotel. Now that sounds good, doesn't it?!
The answer? No, no it's not. Marrakech is a landlocked city, so if you're wanting to swim then grab a hotel with a big ol' pool complex and get ready to take a cooling dip.
