Hotel Le Grand Imilchil
Travel Blogs from Marrakech
Started the day with the free hotel breakfast by the swimming pool consisting of a bread roll, boiled egg, cream cheese, jam, croissant, orange juice and coffee. Headed out to explore the city of Marrakech. Came across the big mosque with a very tall tower but were told my a local that we couldn't go in until 2pm so we kept walking and arrived at …
Breakfast on the last day of the ride was quite basic. The interesting addition was sliced tomato, cucumber (Moroccan salad?) and plastic cheese (yuk). Whilst waiting for Marina, we noticed several sheep and lambs with their legs bound in the back of a ute parked next to our van. They were bleating pathetically, and obviously, destined for the …
Had to check out of the B&B this morning as we had to rendezvous with our cycling tour this evening at another hotel.
Left the bags in the B&B then walked to Palais Badii, built by Sultan Ahmad el Mansour in the 1500's, the King entombed in the Saadian tombs.. As with most others, the palace was eventually destroyed and valuables …
Got 1st class tix. had compartment to ourselves for awhile--laid down & slept. In Meknes 2 others came in.

Dinner: chicken & couscous--delish.

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.

Very Very Very tired. TripAdvisor stated go somewhere else. We have to agree. BUT this is also where our bicycle tour ended. Carpets were threadbare. The shower does work. Room doors look like they have been jimmied. Lots of fancy Mercedes parked out the front. Don't think they were for complimentary limo transfers. Happy to leave.
