Changing Currency In Morocco

The currency in Morocco is the Dirham. At the time of writing 100 Dirham is worth about €10. Notes are available in 200, 100, 50 and 20 Dirhams. What’s unusual about the Dirham is that it’s a “closed” currency, so you can’t just pop into your local travel agency or bank and change money for a trip to Morocco. You can only buy and sell Dirhams in country. On arrival at any of the airports in Morocco, you will see…

Riad Dar Mayssane, Rabat

Hotel Palais Medina & Spa, Fes

We weren’t planning to stay at the Palais Medina & Spa in Fès, however we weren’t happy with the location of our accommodation we’d booked, so we cancelled and reserved a room at this 5* hotel. The hotel is situated on a main road, opposite the medina and next to a good sized shopping centre. We booked a standard double room with bed & breakfast and were allocated one with a lovely view over the pool and medina. Our room…

Hotel Atlas Les Almohades, Tangier

We decided on the 4* Atlas Les Almohades for our stay in Tangier as it overlooks the Bay of Tangier, had WiFi and offered free parking onsite. On our journey from the Tangier airport through the city, we discovered that there is so much construction happening, therefore it wasn’t a surprise to find a building site on the beach directly opposite our hotel, for the new Tanja Marina Bay. For this reason, we were allocated a pool view room at…

Mike’s Thoughts On Morocco

Every guide book to every destination on the planet seems to fall back on the oldest cliche of all – “It’s a country / city / town of contrasts.” But in the case of Morocco, I have finally found a place worthy of that hackneyed phrase. On the one hand, I have never witnessed such abject poverty at close quarters, and on the other, I have seen more Maseratis during my week here, than I have in my previous 54…

Our tour to discover Morocco

Our road trip to discover Morocco all started with the Ryanair €9.99 winter sale, where I spotted an offer from Madrid to Tangier. Usually we can’t find any deals from Lanzarote so when I spotted this flight I booked it on a whim. I had always wanted to visit Marrakech, despite our close location to Morocco from the Canary Islands it’s not cheap or convenient to fly direct. Binter offer a service but I haven’t found flights under 400 euro…

Le Dhow Restaurant Lounge Bar, Rabat

Our riad had recommended two local restaurants for our evening meal in Rabat, we opted for Le Dhow. Le Dhow is a wooden dhow boat that has been converted to offer a floating restaurant and chill out lounge moored on the waterfront of Rabat, underneath the Kasbah D’Oudayas. When we boarded we were shown to the dining room on the top deck, it was warm and cosy, out of the cool evening breeze. We were given a romantic table for…
