We do not recommend that visitors/travelers in Morocco drink tap water. Even in the larger, modern cities or hotels, the water contains higher levels of minerals than the water in North America and can also contain various microbes or amoeba. For Moroccans, these kinds of microbes or concentration of minerals are not a problem as their bodies are used to coping with them. For travelers, however, drinking the tap water often results in illness (upset stomach, diarrhea, vomiting, etc). Although such illnesses are not usually serious in nature, they can spoil a day or two of your holiday/vacation.
Bottled water is widely available and reasonably priced in Morocco! Popular brands of water include Oulmes (sparkling) and Sidi Ali, Sidi Harazem and Ain Saiss Danone (still). We recommend Sidi Ali as the best tasting bottled water in Morocco.
