We arrive in Casablanca and meet our guide, Ahmed and driver Abdul. They load up our chariot for the next week, a late model mini-van and take us through the city giving us a short tour to get our bearings. After they drop us off at our hotel, we go for a short walk to help us adjust to the time difference. Unfortunately, nothing is open for dinner …
We left Essaouira fairly earlier for our last tedious, long trip to Casablanca. We stopped for lunch in El Jadida, our guide's home town. This town was the last holdout of the Portuguese occupiers, mainly because of strong fortifications. When they abandoned the fort and the town they place mines all around to be detonated when the Moroccans came …

TravelPod Member ReviewsNovotel Casablanca City Center
I am a single women traveling by myself and wanted a good hotel to stay at for a couple if nights before meeting up with my tour. The novatel was perfect for this. The rooms are clean and comfortable and the stuff were helpful.
