I was set up in this place by Royal Air Maroc during my long layover and I have to say that it was way better than sitting in the airport for 14 hours. There was some construction going on but I found the whole place to be suitable for me while I was in transit. I looked online while staying there and several people gave horrid reviews, I really don't think it was as bad as most people said it was, then again I didn't pay for it. So I would label it "Functional" for those traveling due to it's proximity to the airport and the free shuttle. I would also like to remind people that you're in Africa, so knock your expectations down a notch or two.
If you're not in transit to or from the airport, don't stay there.

Marble galore, and no expense spared, quite unbelievable really, an amazing architectural feat and the architect was neither Muslim or Moroccan! Gave up the idea of walking home, took a cab and retrieved our bags and walked 100m up the road to the Movenpick hotel, where we dumped the bags and headed to the rooftop pool, most refreshing after shot dusty day. We have regained out trust in Lonely ...
... and feast away.
Fruit? The Zagora watermelons might be the sweetest we've tasted, and we had a few, but the Crenshaw melons (green inside, orange wrinkled outside) are the sweetest, juiciest melon imaginable, and we had many! Morocco grows its own bananas (not so great) and oranges in massive quantities. A typical Moroccan dessert is peeled, sliced oranges served with cinnamon sprinkled generously. Try it at home. (I would sneak cinnamon orange segments to ...
... with cream cheese and strawberries. Then we ate a caesar salad for lunch at Le 25 Casablanca for 90 MAD (10.19 USD). In total (with conversion fees) we spent $339.24 USD (3014.74 MAD). We have $5280.33 USD (46924.97 MAD) in total left over. See you soon!
... be on Moroccan soil. The airport being located about forty minutes outside of Casablanca it was great to have a transfer organised so we could just sit back and take in the scenery as we made our way into town. This too was our first exposure to the polite chaos of Moroccan traffic, to us it was mayhem, however whilst there is the regular use of the car horn (and lots of minor bingles) there is no sign of aggression.
