Summer in Marrakech
Posted on 11th July 2017 at 14:35
It's Pool Season in Marrakech!
July and August are at the height of European and American tourist season which happens to coincide with pool season in Marrakech! With average temperatures in the 30's, a swimming pool becomes more than a luxury, it becomes a necessity! At Hotel Al Fassia we are lucky enough to have a large swimming pool set in a open but intimate part of the hotel; here you can bask in the glorious Marrakech sun while sipping on a refreshing cocktail or two. Don't be fooled by a lot of other hotels and riads in Marrakech who claim to have pools, sadly, these tend to be little more than ornamental plunge pools.
After spending an afternoon chilling out by our pool, why not check out some of the events happening in Marrakech this July and August.
