We recently traveled to Morocco where we explored this magnificent desert country from.our base in Rabat, Villa Mandarine provided a charming, relaxed and extremely comfortable base for us. The beautifully manicured gardens and appointed rooms provided for a very relaxing stay. Excellent restaurant, bar and internet wifi with a great pool area which our 3 children made the most of....

A superb hotel set amongst a mandarine grove and lush gardens. This was our first visit to Rabat and we were recommended the Villa and it lived up to its excellent reputation. We were a family of three travelling with an adult daughter and felt as if we were coming home from the moment we stepped through the front doors.... More

We were with a small tour group, using a small bus, so the location was not a problem. But it is not located close to the downtown. But the hotel itself is a lovely accommodation, surrounded by lush gardens and trees. The restaurant is good, the bar is small and convivial, the pool is also nice. I enjoyed the quiet... More

Lovely boutique hotel. Hotel grounds (well-landscaped with pointsettas, fruit trees, and lush and gorgeous gardens) and public spaces (lush courtyards & dining areas with a mix of colonial era & traditional Moroccan decor) were an absolute delight. Rooms were simple but extremely comfortable. Breakfasts (included) & dinners were delicious.

The hotel was nice but a bit dated. It was in a really interesting neighborhood with many embassys. We tried to go to the river or Salle but taxis were very very expensive to Salle so we went to the river and just walked around. I wouldn't necessarily tell people to go to Rabat. Hotel was “fine” but was too... More

We arrived at Villa Mandarine following a long flight from Los Angeles via Paris to Casablanca, so we were very happy to pull up to what looks like a lovely property. The gardens are quite nice; however our room was quite underwhelming with a bed that was on the older side. The bathroom also left a bit to be desired,... More

We staid here with my family in december. Great place to stay - nice pool, pingpong and "boules" game available, as well as a snooker. Very nice rooms and nice staff. It is far from the center of the city, so you'll need a car.

A great hotel in Rabat and relatively near most businesses, but quite secluded; you'll need a car to get around because there are no commercial establishments / restaurants nearby. I was there for a week on a UN Mission and this is where they recommended ... I confirmed it on Travel Adviser and it was as advertised ... Absolutely gorgeous... More

I love the attention to detail they put into the place. The attention is very personal as the owners are usually around. The gardens are lovely and well kept, the restaurant is excellent and the wine list very good. I would recommend this hotel to people stopping in Rabat, not only on business.

This the perfect place to spend first night in morrocco. We flew into Casablanca. And after a short tour of that city were driven to Rabat and this lovely riad. It could best be described as a small inn. Room open to outside with small patio and enclosed garden. The restaurant was outstanding with the service by the locals best... More
