Hotel le Caspien
Travel Blogs from Marrakech
We had a bit of a sleep in this morning after the late night festivities the previous evening. Eventually the possibility of missing breakfast pulled us out of bed and we stumbled downstairs to see what awaited us. It was a veritable feast. Gone was the stale wedge bread, laughing cow cheese and black olives we had come to …
Got 1st class tix. had compartment to ourselves for awhile--laid down & slept. In Meknes 2 others came in.
Nice driver took us to the Cottages. Difficult to find, but he was very nice.
Got in our cottage, Sylvain showed us around. Went to the pool.
Laid down, not feeling well. A/C not working. Sylvain couldn't get it to work, so we moved to another cottage.
Dinner: chicken & couscous--delish.
... sitting. He double checked again, making sure he understood what I wanted: tea in the teapot, ice in the glasses. Oui. I really think he had no idea what we were doing.
Once the black tea had steeped, I slowly poured it over the ice. Voila! Iced tea. So happy. Of course, we only had enough ice for one glass, but by the time we drank that, the rest of the tea in the pot had cooled down considerably (and so had we), so it all worked out very well. The salads were amazing too.
... has air conditioning, so he got the prices for me. Marrakech to Meknes is a nearly 7-hour train ride, so I had to go with 1st Class; I just couldn't see sweltering for seven hours.
He also made an appointment for us at a spa for messages. We both woke up with migraines. Sigh. We both took Imitrex. Our appointment was for 1 pm, so we relaxed until then. Fortunately, Hunter's migraine went away. Mine improved quite a bit after I laid down for awhile.
... bright town carnival and neon glowing ferris wheel, had shut down for Friday night at 8pm! sadly. Also sad was the fact that there was literally no food that didn't have meaty stuff in it anywhere in this town, which is unusual as the veggie and lentil stews are pretty commonplace everywhere in Morocco. But not in Amizmiz, just goat blood and your choice of hanging carcasses galore. In the morning we shimmied out of town unnoticed, heading toward Imi-n-Tanoute in the ...

TravelPod Member ReviewsHotel le Caspien Marrakech
This hotel was a nice change from some of the other hotels that we had stayed at during our tour. It is a 3 star hotel, the rooms are nice an clean and they have a restaurant, small pool ( where you can get a beer) and also a roof top bar. There are some good restaurants within walking distance. It is in the new part of town so the only downfall is that you will need to take a taxi ( about $5) to the souk and main square .
