4.0 out of 5 stars Does the job
Travelling in November, found hotel prices lower than in the book, other prices generally higher.
I only went to well-trodden places, and found the info provided adequate.
There's also a lot of interesting stuff to read.

3.0 out of 5 stars A good guide, slightly let down by missing practical info
Reviews of guide books are difficult - it's not just about how good the guide is, but how good it is compared to the alternatives. This is a solid lonely planet guide book, and I think it's probably better than many of the alternatives in many ways.

Having said that, it does suffer from some frustrating issues. The format (perhaps across all the new LP guides)...

3.0 out of 5 stars A good guide, slightly let down by missing practical info, 2 Oct. 2014

This review is from: Lonely Planet Morocco (Travel Guide) (Paperback)
Reviews of guide books are difficult - it's not just about how good the guide is, but how good it is compared to the alternatives. This is a solid lonely planet guide book, and I think it's probably better than many of the alternatives in many ways.

Having said that, it does suffer from some frustrating issues. The format (perhaps across all the new LP guides) means you find yourself having to flick back and forth skipping over random insert-sections (e.g. in the middle of the Fez section). There's also not enough cross referencing - it isn't always obvious where the 'generic' information is going to be, and linking back and forth would be helpful. That's true of the sections at the end of the book, and of the little pull-out boxes on food, etc. which aren't always referred to in the 'eating' section itself (or vice-versa).
More generally, while there are lots of great ideas on what to do and where to go, some of the practical detail is lacking for example on approximate costs (e.g. of a desert tour), how or where you might organise particular trips or activities (useful just to be able to compare to what a hotel might say if nothing else), etc.

So - a good guide, but could have done with being longer and expanding some of the detail

Much too inflexible - too difficult to switch between one section and another and the maps are impossible.
