Half a cup of terrible lukewarm tea upon arrival. They didn't have the room we booked so without apology tried to give us an awful room for the same price. Nice Riad but not worth more than $70/night.

My husband and I spent a night at Dar El Kebira and what a wonderful experience. It started with the gracious greeting we received upon arrival including a tray of delicious Moroccan treats and mint tea, followed by our lovely room, and capped off with a delicious Moroccan dinner. The owners and staff were so friendly and kind; we felt... More

I had a great time at Dar El Kebira, the property is simply wonderful and the hosts did a great job creating a peaceful and welcoming atmosphere. It is a great experience especially for tourists like me (all the way from cold montreal) as it is located in the heart of the medina of Rabat and I would greatly recommend... More

Of the half dozen places we stayed on our trip to Morocco this was probably the second worst. The worst place had no hot water. It was certainly adequate and while not especially comfortable it was comfortable enough. I'm not generally an entitled, complainy person, but feel it necessary to warn travelers that this place is certainly not worth the... More

This Riad has a convenient location in the Medina not far from the Kasbah. While the rooms are not as nice as in the photos (as another reviewer observed) and I would not call this a 5* hotel, it is nice and comfortable. We had rooms off the lobby on main floor. Both were comfortable and clean. We had both... More

Not too difficult to find and well positioned for the souqs, the Kasbah and the sea, this Riad was very comfortable. The welcome was fine and the Moroccan details of furnishing and decor were great. Our room had a 4 poster bed and the bathroom had a deep bath (we never did find the light switch though!). It was the... More

Nice entrance way, sitting area and dining area. My party and I stayed on the 2nd floor which overlooked the courtyard. The room furnishings were pleasant. The sink pattern was the most unique that I have ever seen. The front desk was pleasant. The food was fine. Unfortunately, a few of the kitchenware were not cleaned enough for my liking... More
