After coming recommended in the lonely planet guide we were sure we were in for a blissful afternoon of relaxation......we were so wrong!!!! My boyfriend and I decided on the traditional hammam, body wrap and massage which was 480 dirham each. We arrived and were shown into a small room to change into our swimwear. We were then led to the Hammam room which had a hot stone ledge for you to sit on, this was so hot i could hardly sit on it. A women then came in and threw a bucket of cold water over our heads with no prior warning......not relaxing. The women seemed to have a little bit of a 'cant be bothered' attitude and later when I was unsure where to go, walked behind me and pushed me down a corridor!!!! We were then sat in a room with a burnt sofa and a halogen heater to 'relax' and have a mint tea before our massage. At this point I thought it couldn't get any worse.....how wrong I was!!! We were taken into separate rooms for our massage, my lady applied no pressure what so ever and all I could here was the coughing of the masseuse next door. I actually didn't have it as bad as my boyfriend though who was the one being coughed all over for 30 minutes!!! We said something to the manager about this however were just asked to put our card in the machine whilst she said sorry!!!!! Just to let you know we are a young couple (mid twenties) and really easy going, it takes a lot for us to complain, but this was truly awful, apart from this experience we loved Marrakech!!!
