I arrived late in the evening, hot and sweaty and very tired, but the Villa Mandarine requires no effort, the check in was simple and quick the room was cool and welcoming the bed was underneath me when I fell back. Room service was quick and the menu selection was adequate for my needs, though the salt and pepper never... More

The Villa Mandarine was the first hotel I stayed at on two week tour of Morocco. Upon check in, I was struck by the coldness of the welcome - no greeting, no welcome drink, no explanation of the hotel's layout or amenities, just an abrupt demand for a passport and a direction to my room. This might be the norm... More

The Villa Mandarine is a beautiful property for an overnight stay at in Rabat. It is built around huge gardens .... very quiet .... very peaceful. It is a low rise 2 story property. The room and bath are good size. The feel of the place is very French and so are a lot of the guests. We had an... More

I stayed in this hotel last night, and decided to write a review while the place is still fresh in my mind. Villa Mandarine is set in a beautiful location, surrounded by lush gardens, detailed mosaics, and a blend of Mediterranean and Moorish architecture. The vivid colors and exotic fragrances immediately make you feel like you're in another world. The... More

This boutique hotel is situated in the ambassadorial district of Rabat. It is expertly run, sophisticated and quite comfortable with a savvy crowd. Yet it is charming...the rooms and public spaces are decorated with artist's copies and unique Moroccan themes. The food is expertly prepared in the restaurant and the service impeccable. The front desk is singularly efficient and was... More

We spent the first night of our two-week Moroccan holiday in Room #1 at the Villa Mandarine, and found it absolutely charming. The room was spacious and cheerful and private, with a lovely little terrace, excellent bathroom and comfy bed. The room was great -- but the building itself and the surrounding grounds make exploring a real pleasure. There's a... More

We had one night in Rabat and after a full day of touring this hotel was perfect. Beautifully decorated, our room was bright blue and white with a connecting door to my sisters, warm tangerine room. Both rooms had a private patio overlooking the wonderful gardens. To top it all the restaurant at the hotel was 5 star! We had... More

We had one night in Rabat and are glad that we spent it at Villa Mandarine. It is very quiet, the room was spacious and comfortable, and everything was clean. We had a ground level room so could enjoy the view of the garden as well as a stroll in it. Both the room and the garden were clearly handled... More
