Where to stay in Morocco


Morocco has a thriving tourist industry and accordingly, there is no shortage of hotels in every budget range, class and style.

Riads, referring to traditional Moroccan houses designed around a courtyard garden, are favoured by many travellers, while international luxury chains like Four Seasons and Mandarin Oriental are also available to visitors who value privacy and tranquillity.

Those looking for the simple pleasures of sun, sea and sand are likely to opt for a holiday resort with amenities along the Atlantic coast, particularly in Agadir.


Traditionally, Morocco's indigenous tribes camp as they move from one place to another. And now tourists who venture into remote areas that lack hotel facilities also need to pitch a tent. Some campsites are basic, but others offer a 'luxury under canvas' experience with on-site restaurants, massage services, and even a front desk for your convenience.

Other accomodation

Self-catering villas and youth hostels are also available.
