Marrakech, Morocco. What to do, what to eat and where to stay.

Your quick travel guide to Marrakech!

This is your quick and easy guide to seeing Marrakech in a few days. We spent a little over a week traveling through Morocco by car and we ended the trip in this chic and historic city.

There is so much to do and see in Morocco and you should really spend a couple of weeks there, to visit each region. Our two week long trip ended with us spending 3 days in Marrakech.

Where to stay:

I booked our stay at Riad Be Marrakech, before we purchased our plane tickets. I did this for a reason. This Riad is in high demand and sells out quickly. By making our reservation here first, we were able to guarantee the room that we wanted and availability in advance. I booked through and got a refundable reservation, that we did not have to pay for until check out.

Where to eat:

Where do I begin!the food in Morocco was so good and fresh. On our first night, we had dinner at Le Comptoir Marrakech. This restaurant was so chic and modern. We ate in the indoor garden and the belly dancing show started at 10 pm. We had lamb shank, mango mojitos and some of the best bread. Dinner ran us about $65 total.

Have breakfast with white glove service, at Royal Mansour Marrakech. It’s about $45 per person, but you can choose everything on the menu, including freshly squeezed juices. Buy some Argan Butter to bring home!

Have a fresh juice in the Souk and eat street food! The juice was $2 each for the largest size and dinner, 3 courses was about $17.

What to do:

I will say this, the souk is very large, the merchants are aggressive and you will get lost. Please hire a guide to shop with you. Our guide picked us up and walked us through everything and made sure that we were not harassed and got the best deals for what we wanted.

Book a spa day at La Mamounia (Do this at least 6 months in advance).


See the Bahia Palace

Book tickets in advance to Le Jardin Majorelle

Spend a day exploring the Souk.

Happy travels!

Welcome to my Travel blog! Some of you may not know that this is not my first rodeo on the blogging scene. I wrote an entertainment and lifestyle blog for an NYC based PR Firm back in 2011 before my business took off and got a little busy. I have traveled abroad and domestically at my leisure and for work since 2005 and I have many stories to share. I was first introduced to international travel by my parents. They took me along with them on a missions trip to Germany and halfway through the trip, I hopped on a bus by myself and crossed the border into France. I spent the weekend exploring Paris on my own back when solo trips were not popular. I was 25 years old with a YOLO attitude and just could not be that close to the "City of Lights" without making a visit. That is when the travel bug hit! I was recently inspired to start blogging again after my trip to Cuba, and this time, create a blog for myself. When I first started traveling on a more consistent basis and internationally, I was 25 years old, single and working full time as contract travel Occupational Therapist. I met my husband of almost ten years along the way and he said that one of the things that attracted me to him was my love for travel. He got himself a passport and we have continued to see the world since then, kids and all!
