This hotel was our first stop on a two week tour of Morocco - an outstanding place to rest and regroup after a LONG flight with stops in Minneapolis and Paris!. Everything was spotless; food appetizing and easily accepted by the "western" palate. Navigating the many internal hallways took a little practice - one could imagine secret doors and passageways....

We have stayed here several times often in the winter and when it is raining. Not the best time to enjoy the lovely gardens but we keep coming back! The courtyard of rooms is removed from the main desk area but that makes it quiet. The rooms have a comfortable decor - somewhat Moroccan but with a yellow and white... More

Very nice boutique hotel. Located in a residential aerea of Rabat. The hotel is surrounded by citrus trees and beautiful gardens. The hotel decor is very pretty.breakfast is very good. It is located away from center town.

We spent several nights in this beautiful hotel. It has an intimate private villa feel to it without being claustrophobic. Wonderful grounds and gardens, gorgeous decor and art work. The restaurant was outstanding. As non smokers we much appreciated the large non-smoking section. The food was superb French cuisine complete with dessert soufflés. Our room was large and beautiful with... More

I stayed 8 months in Villa Mandarine (July 2013-March 2014) while I was waiting to move to another country. The team helped us to feel like home during this long period. Rooms are really beautiful with a Moroccan touch that makes the difference. We tried different rooms, different floors and I can guarantee that all the rooms are different, have... More

Villa Mandarine is an excellent place to chill and stay - I only had two nights here but I intend to return for an extended holiday. The atmosphere of the Villa is quite exceptional. The room (30) included absolutely everything one would need to be comfortable. I am usually able to note the 'little things' missing in a standard chain... More

Basic lack of skills and/or training of middle management in this hotel led to a very unsatisfactory stay. After a long day travelling and sightseeing we arrived hot, tired and dusty at the Villa Mandarin in Rabat, only to find that the hotel had incorrectly reserved only one, rather than two, bedrooms for our party of two couples and the...

Spent a night here while traveling Morocco. The facility is wonderful, an old villa restored to a hotel. Sitting on our patio and looking at the gardens was delightful. The room was fine, no complaints. Breakfast was very good and included. Service was very good,a place we would stay again should we end in Rabat. The location is maybe not... More

Only got to stay one night, and was very sad not to spend more time in the magnificent gardens surrounding the hotel. The rooms were lovely and the service excellent. Our room had it's own patio, perfect for sipping very good morning coffee. The breakfast buffet was fine and our dinner excellent. would return for a longer stay next time.

We stayed one night at Villa Mandarine and found the hotel to be very pleasant with good service, an excellent dinner and an adequate breakfast. It was also lovely to get away from city chaos and be surrounded by beautiful gardens (unfortunately we did not have time to use the pool or spend time in the garden). We did however... More
