    Africa

    Africa is a common destination for tourists from all over the world. There is something primal about this beautiful land that calls many people to it, and a trip to Africa is a once-in-a-lifetime experience sure to create memories to be cherished for the rest of one's life.

    Weather in South Africa tends to be hot all-year round, with an average temperature of 85 degrees Fahrenheit (30 degrees Celsius) during the day. At night, temperatures drop quite a bit. Because the temperature remains so constant throughout the year, the main determining factor as far as when to go will be whether it is the rainy or dry season.

    The dry season runs from October through March. The dry season is the best time to visit if you are planning to go to one of Africa's breathtaking beaches. If you are planning on a safari, the dry season is also an optimal time to visit thanks to the fact that the animals will conveniently gather around watering holes during this season.

    The wet season lasts from April to July along the coast and from July to September further inland. If you are planning a trip to areas such as Mali, this is the best time to go as temperatures tend to be a bit cooler.

    Africa offers a wide variety of things to see and experience. For those who love to watch wildlife, a safari is a great opportunity to do just that. If you prefer to lounge around in a posh beach resort, there are plenty of those along Africa's coastline. While a visit to Egypt to see the pyramids and experience Egyptian culture is the perfect trip for history, culture, and archaeology buffs.

    The Indian Ocean

    The beautiful Indian Ocean is scattered with many beautiful islands that present a picturesque place to relax and soak up the warm sun. There are many places in the Indian Ocean that make for excellent diving spots, and there is an abundance of great exotic marine wildlife to interact with and view.

    "Centrally located"
    Firstly please note that the hotel is based in the old part of Marrakech. However really nice as its centrally located. Shops are really close and the main square is about 10mins walk. The people of Marrakech are really friendly. One thing I must warn everyone about. Is please, please, please make sure that you book airport transfer. Just costs 170 MAD it will save you the time. It only takes about 20minutes from the airport however our experience was over 2 and a half hours. In terms of the hotel just kindly note they have a few branches all are within walking distance and the place you check in is not where you stay. But please don't be frightened as the staff explain everything to you and they even provide you with a mobile to call anytime 24/7 if you need help. Not once have they ever let me down. The breakfast is really nice to. Remember it's included in your bill. Just so you have no surprises you will need to pay 1500 MAD upfront and will be refunded to you upon check out. You also have to pay tax information can be found on Expedia page. I was really impressed with all the staff members and flattened with the great experience that everyone is really really friendly. Well I hope you enjoy your stay the way I did!

    "Nice Hotel, Good Value, Close to Airport"
    Stayed overnight while making a connecting flight. Had read other expedia reviews that suggested to ask for a room that did not face the airport .. which we did. Lovely and quiet. Room had been freshly painted though .. didn't care for that. Superbly comfy bed with duvet, wonderful tub for 2, great shower and 24 hour room service with a good selection of great food. Free shuttle to/from the airport - a little challenging to find upon arrival in Johannesburg but we just kept asking people along the way. Shuttle operates on a good schedule making it most convenient.
