Not many hotels around, and the few there is tend to fill up quickly in summer time. And you get slightly less for your money here, compared to other cities along the Atlantic coast. Outside season, prices drop dramatically.
Restaurants and alternatives
Just like hotels, there are not many restaurants around, and in general quality appears to be below what is found in most other coastal cities.
El-Jadida has a number of discos which unfortunately has turned into a type of brothel, where the ordinary woman, Moroccan or foreign, will feel uncomfortable. Some of the better hotels, do however have more normal opportunities.
Plenty of banks.
Good on buses and shared taxis in all directions. Trains? Forget it. You will see from maps and some guidebooks that there is a train station for El-Jadida. But somehow this has been put 15 km (and El-Jadida is not a big city!) out into the countryside, so you will need a taxi to get there.
Azemmour (20 km north-east), and must be among the most relaxed cities in Morocco, yet the old town is definitely worth a visit.
Oualidia (80 km south-west), is another good holiday city. And a great place for eating oysters.
Casablanca (100 km north-east). When you're this close, how can you not visit Casablanca.
