They are flagging up a week in the Royal Mansour Marrakech from £5995 two+two family (kids under 12).
There’s all kind of luxury: riads, hamams, fine dining.
As well as lots for the adventurous sort such as dune surfing, horse and carriage ride through the city, riding camels.

Seven nights to the lushly forested Mljet Island and Dubrovnik, staying at a 3* on June 18, with flights from Dublin from €887.
