Found 25th May 2014
UPDATE: - Big thanks to Bargainhuntersupreme who spotted that the hotel in this example provide free airport shuttle transfers 24 hours a day and therefore I have amended the price accordingly in the title

Amended price £192.44 per couple (£96.21)

Here is a nice cheap little Break to Marrakech, Morocco for 2 Adults for 5 nights.

There are many flights/dates to choose from throughout November and December which means you can alter this deal, or play around with dates to shorten or even make longer your stay. The great thing also with using Easyet is that the more that travel the cheaper the price goes so if there are four of you wanting to travel you can bring this price down quite a lot.

The price with easyjet includes an unweighted cabin bag so you can take a small case without any additional costs.

I have also included transfers in the price so that you are getting a realistic price of what this short break is going to cost you.

There are many hotels not only listed on Travel Republic but also different options on Alpharooms or bookings.com but I have chosen this hotel for the example here as its rated very well (4.5/5 on Trip Advisor with a Certificate of Excellence Award for 2014.

Example based on flights from Stansted on 1st December returning on 6th December 2014.

Just arrived back from Marrakech, it is BORING, use it as a base and travel out. Head to Essaouira for two nights, absolutely beautiful. Plus a taxi from the airport will cost you max 100 MAD ( £8 ), but can be had for as little as 50 MAD, don't bother with transfers. The number 19 bus will take you there for 30 MAD single, 50 MAD return. (13 MAD=£1 )

I recommend road aubrec instead, road sacr is hard to find and not as described went there last year, woman is nice but its more of a home.

Anything for morocco in the next couple of months OP? Thanks in advance!! @sunshinestacey

Great price!

You don't need transfers if you stay here as it says complimentary shuttle is provided.

Is advise a day or two in Marrakech, definitely not 5 days. Agadir is nice, and I imagine other coastal parts of Morocco are great also.

First day I got to Marrakech I had diareah from the food, it was 42C and I had to down bottles of water to keep me hydrated haha. Good times.

Really good stuff Stacey. Anyone know what the weathers like there around this time?

Horrible place. Save your money and go elsewhere. Food is absolutely horrible, food in square will actually make u sick, under the marquee and in the cafés surrounding the square, both crap. The square is crap, miles of horrible stalls which sells the same thing...see 6-7stalls and you've seen it all. Bought two leather belts, both broke within a year. Be prepared to haggle hard if u want to buy anything from the stalls. For my belt they started at 300dirhams and got it down to 60dirhams each after 15-30mins of negotiations. Only thing I enjoyed was the excursions, quod biking, ourika valley, etc. be prepared to be taken to crappy restaurants on these excursions where you have to pay 75dhs for set menu with horrible food (tell them you're not prepared to pay so much and don't want to eat there and the staff will oblige to sell you one thing on the menu for cheaper. Eat enough to keep you going and eat when you get back to your hotel or somwhere nice) and then they take you to a medical centre where they try to sell you herbal medicine. Only place I loved was Al-Fasia (a restaurant run by women only) will cost you on average £15-25 each possibly more with alcohol but well worth it. Save your money and go somewhere in Asia (China, India, Japan etc). Sorry for the rant but the city is horrible and say this to all my friends and family....only built to exploit money from tourists, no authenticity at all!!

I was looking at Morocco until I looked up the government advise
"There is a general threat from terrorism." Not for me.

dont listen to these boring people, go to marrakech its amazing, lots to do, weather not so hot in dec, but still a cheap holiday, abt the terrorism threat hes an idiot, every country is a threat doesn't mean you lock yourself up in the basement.

is this available from manchester?

When going on excursions, be expected to be taken to the drivers friends restaurants on the way to these places. They make little money, so they earn commission from the food eaten at inflated prices here. Your breakfasts and dinners will all be paid for, and a little common sense will get you a long way when travelling abroad. I took my own food, bought from the French supermarket outside of the 'Old Town', and didn't have to pay the expensive food prices like everyone else. I paid around £70 for the Sahara Desert excursion, bring along small change to tip various characters along the way, they call themselves tour guides, but some of them don't know s*it. I didn't like Marrakech, but Fez is worth a trip, as well as Chefchaouen and, like I said, Essauorra. There is not a lot of soul in Marrakech, it's all a bit fake.

Agree this is a horrible place!

thanks stace!!!

I would say don't stay near the medina the hassle you get is inbelievable we stayed at the Kenzi Menara palace about 10 mins drive from the centre hotel was lush just do a trip in to the centre there's an aqua park hotel not far from there too which looked good to stay in if you are taking little ones. We were also warned about eating food in the square only for those with strong stomachs I think!

I was going to book this until I read the Tripadvisor reviews on Riad SACR. Although there were decent reviews of the owners, these two comments in particular (on top some of the comments here about Marrakesh generally) put me off:

"It is not as advertised. There is no bar, no restaurant, no complimentary transport from the airport, no spa, etc... There was very little (5 minutes) of hot water for my shower. There are no locks on the doors to the rooms and no safes either. "

And from a senior reviewer:

"Booked this based on the reviews and the description, Bar , restaurant, steam room , terrace NONE of which existed. No door locks which could be of concern, to get in you need to ring the front doorbell so as the bolts can be thrown and the door opened, not so good if you are sleeping and someone wants to come in.
You will NOT find this place without a guide, even if you use the taxi transfer as this drops you off outside of the medina walls. The staff were really helpful however I should have preferred the website description to much the reality."

Where's stanstead?
