Unfortunately we were not able to go inside, but the stunning tile work is worth stopping and looking from outside. make sure you get up close as the colour of the tiles and patterns are stunning.

This palace has, as all other royal palaces in Morocco, a very nice gate. But that is all you can see. Since it is a bit away from the center, you might omit this sight.

The outside of the palace is quite attractive, but since it is a "working" royal palace you are not allowed inside, although I gather that sometimes you can gain admission. What you will see is a big plaza, nicely kept landscape, huge palace doors and palace walls. You can take some photographs but do not take pictures that include the... More

I did an extensive walk around Casablanca yesterday and tried the Royal Palace yet again. Unfortunately, yet again, I wasn't allowed in. It seems that, from reviews posted here, some people have managed to gain entry and have even uploaded photos. I wish they had posted details of when and how. I had a shopping bag with me yesterday and... More

If you are visiting Casablanca, this is a must see. I really admired the giant door outside the palace with its Moroccan decorations. One must visit the surroundings in order to see the entire place. I must suggest one should hire a guide who should be able to give the details of the palace. Although tourists are not allowed inside... More

Really not worth your time other than to say you've been there. You can not go in, so what you see is what you get, a view of a Royal Palace from the outside and some guards, The overall grounds are nice. Take a photo or just buy a postcard all the same.

The Palace seems nicely decorated and beautiful but cannot go inside. They do not allow visitors. Therefore it is not worth it. It is a waste of time to just go outside the gate. There are are better places to visit in Casablanca!
