We started our two-week travels in Rabat rather than Casablanca, given availability of international flights and a much less hectic arrival scene in a small easy-to-navigate airport. Villa Rabat is a beautiful home turned into a hotel, surrounded by a garden, pool, and 700 citrus trees. Just walking around the garden on a beautiful spring day like today and you... More

A garden villa. Beautiful grounds. Nice room with semi-private patio. We stayed here on a tour. We had one meal here, which was excellent. This is not in the downtown area (thank heavens), but out in a nice neighborhood (Souissi) of villas and embassies. If you have some urge to go downtown, you can get a cab. It's not especially...

No chain hotel here. Mid April and the weather was perfect, citrus blossom in full scent and hotel just the right type of interesting and relaxing. It honestly felt a bit dreamy and just right - stayed for business will stay again for vacation.

I have stayed at Villa Mandarine on many occasions, mostly on business but also with my wife. We love it! Welcoming staff. Stylish, individual rooms. Beautiful gardens. Nice pool. Excellent restaurant with discrete staff. Great wine list with a well-chosen selection of Moroccan wines. Good food with a nice balance of Moroccan, French/international. Great spa/hammam - great for relaxing!

We booked at this hotel based on Trip Advisor reviews. It's absolutely gorgeous. Let's be clear, though. It is VERY far from town. In non-rush hour, 30 minutes. The taxis don't want to come out because they can't pick up a return fare. Most of the staff was very nice, but the desk manager was absolutely snarky. Perhaps he's jaded... More

We were looking for a relaxing break and some winter sun after the relentless rain in the UK. We could not have chosen better. Villa Mandarine is a peaceful, sophisticated retreat from the bustle of central Rabat. Located in the prestigious diplomatic area, it is a short taxi ride to the Kasbah, Necropolis, souk etc. and the petits taxis are... More

Villa Mandarine is an excellent place to wind-down and transition after an overseas fight. Its neighborhood is made up of ambassadors' residences and beautiful estates, and the hotel is in the middle of a lovely citrus orchid. The cocoon-like atmosphere envelopes you immediately, and the lush landscaping and aromas are incredibly relaxing after a long day of travel. We only... More

We arrived at this beautiful property in the dark just in time to have a delicious dinner in the restaurant. My chicken tangine was delicious! The atmosphere in the dining room was just elegant! Our room on the 2nd floor was spacious, furnished beautifully and had all the amenities! I rose early in the a.m. to take a swim in... More

We came for one night in Rabat, and unfortunately we were delayed and did not arrive till 9pm. The room was very nice and the grounds were exceptional. We had a light dinner in the bar and enjoyed lox sandwiches and frys. Our room had its own small patio and lounge area. If you come here, try to arrive early... More

Our only regret was that we were in this delightful place for only one night. However we were fortunate enough to arrive at lunch time, so had a whole afternoon to enjoy the lovely gardens and excellent pool. There is nothing we can fault from the well appointed, large room, good wifi, delicious breakfast, lunch and dinner to the greeting... More
