Accommodations


Morocco provides a wide range of lodging options, including riads (Old Medina houses), world-class luxury hotels, beach resorts, desert and mountain kasbahs, and camps.

There is still plenty of affordable and low-cost options available, although the number of luxurious accommodations has risen in recent years. Booking in advance is suggested during the high season (October, End of December, Easter, and August).

Riad is the most popular place to stay in Morocco. A riad is an old house constructed around a patio with a garden, and the name “riad” refers to the garden, not the building. It is often more elegant and costly, with the option of renting the entire riad.

Weather


Morocco has a huge difference in temperature between the north, south, the Atlas Mountains, and the Sahara Desert.

The best time to explore the north of Morocco, the imperial cities, and the Atlas Mountains is from September to June. Avoid visiting the high Atlas Mountains in December and January, since they are the coldest months of the year, with the chance of snowing.

Those who travel to the south or the desert must avoid June, July, and August because they’re the warmest months, with high temperatures reaching 46 °C during the day and 34 °C at night. If you have summer vacation and don’t want to miss the desert, we recommend riding camels for the sunset or the sunrise and spending only one night in the desert or staying in a hotel with a swimming pool.
