During the night from Saturday to Sunday, the death toll from the earthquake measuring 6.8 on the Richter scale, which struck Friday evening and whose epicenter was southwest of Marrakech, exceeded 2,000 deaths. As reported by Spanish daily Marca, numerous establishments served as shelter for survivors in the Moroccan city, including the four-star hotel owned by soccer star Cristiano Ronaldo.
The Pestana CR7 hotel, located slightly west of the city center, welcomed several people including a Spanish woman who spoke on the 24 Horas channel. "We managed to get to Cristiano Ronaldo's hotel to get a room," says the young woman. We spent the night in the street and at 7am, they told us that we could approach.
“We found ourselves in the hall with people of different nationalities,” she continues. A four-star hotel, the establishment opened its doors in Marrakech in March 2022, in the heart of M Avenue. It is the result of the association between the Portuguese footballer, player of Al-Nassr (Saudi Arabia) whose fortune is estimated at more than a billion euros, and the Portuguese group Pestana.
