With the mercury due to hit the high thirties later this week, The View from Fez has been looking at where to take a swim in the city.
There's only one pool in the medina that's open to non-guests, at Riad Alkantara (pictured above). It costs Dh150 for the day, but non-guest places are extremely limited so you must phone to book on 0535 740 292.
High above the medina is Hotel Les Merinides, where a dip also costs Dh150 per person per day. The Hotel Menzeh Zalagh near McDonald's is only Dh100; it's a smaller pool, but the garden has a lovely view over the medina.
Larger pools can be found at the Royal Mirage Hotel on Avenue des FAR at Dh200 per person. The nicest is probably the Jnan Palace, which also charges Dh200.
The Hotel Ibis, Hotel Batha and Hotel Palais Jamai all told us that non-guests are not welcome.
