The hotel is such a gem: one of the best Boutique hotels in the capital. It's located in an isolated diplomatic area that is very far from the center - I think it's easy to find a taxi. The building is very beautiful with a gorgeous garden and a deep heated swimming pool where you can spend a day and... More

This was a beautifully decorated and lovely place to stay. We booked a standard room which was spacious as was the bathroom. Bathrobes are also supplied. There is a fabulous pool area but unfortunately we only stayed one night and did not have an opportunity to use it.

So mysterious, lovely, a beautiful villa turned into a hotel. Unbelievable garden and very Moroccan. Our room was very comfortable with a extra bedroom for our daughter and a spacious bathroom. This is a 5 star hotel but very reasonably priced. The restaurant is also fabulous, excellent food and lovely atmosphere. So many quiet and inviting corners and sitting areas... More

We should we could have stayed at this property longer. The staff and property was amazing. After 20 hours in flight or in an airport being spoiled at the Spa is a must. The staff at the spa even offered to babysit my daughter while my wife and I got wonderful Hamam's (and must have after that long in flight).

This is a lovely hotel set in beautiful gardens and is a great place to relax. We stayed one night on our way through Rabat and decided we would spend our last two nights in Morocco back at Villa Mandarine to rest and relax. The air in Rabat is much cleaner than Casablanca and the rooms are large and comfortable... More

Wonderful hotel with beautiful grounds and gardens; very pleasant staff and excellent restaurant with friendly, informative chef. Rooms large and comfortable. Staff does everything to please. A great place to stay when visiting the Casablanca area.

We really like this place. We stayed there one week. The villa is set in a garden full of the most luxurious plants, both comestible and not. Everyday we walked the property and picked deliciously ripe kumquats right from the trees. Every morning at breakfast (which we had in own small shaded garden with hibiscus and bougainvillaeas), we drank fresh... More

This was a lovely hotel with beautiful grounds. We had two nights in a spacious room, with a huge bathroom. There was wonderful tile everywhere, and the room was quite appealing, with its patio and lush vegetation. It was spotless space, with a reasonably comfortable bed. We hated to leave for our next city. The public spaces (rooms, patios, gardens)... More

My main worry about this hotel is its location and that is not the Villa's fault but that of my travel agent. I did not realize that the Villa is in effect isolated from Rabat and one could not walk into the city centre. That said all other aspects of the Villa were just about faultless. The rooms were very... More

This was an excellent choice of accommodation for the start of a 2-week journey around Morocco and an introduction to Moroccan lifestyle. The villa is beautifully decorated in a traditional style. Our room was on the upper level with a lovely balcony that faces the west. From our balcony, we had a lovely view of the olive trees in the... More
