Rif is a historic hotel in great location which has been refurbished in recent years. It retains the old world charm in many public areas thought the reception and bar are bright and modern. The old restaurant seems old and tired tho! Reception staff delightful but bar man rude and not customer focused at all!! Bedrooms and bathrooms reasonably spacious... More

A really nice friendly hotel, staff were very good, in reception, in the bar cafe, the concierge. Could not complain at all. The rooms were very clean and spacious and it is right on the water front so access to restaurants and nightlife within easy walking distance. Special compliments to the Spa staff for a good massage and and lots... More

I stayed here with a tour group of 13. First sign of trouble was at check-in; they'd lost our reservations. The room was dark and dingy, though it did have a view of the beach - through dirty windows and broken curtains. No one's TVs worked and the front desk staff said they couldn't do anything about it. The restaurant... More

The hotel is conveniently placed, right near the beach and the medina. It looks impressive from the outside, however, the service we received at the hotel left a lot to be desired. Even though we arrived at 8PM, our room was not yet ready and we had to sit in the reception for almost an hour before it was ready.... More

The hotel was good to stay, close to the beach and the boardwalk, with some restaurants in the vicinity and the kasbah and medina are a nice leisurely 10 minute stroll away. The hotel itself has good sized rooms, clean, good wifi and a enjoyable continental breakfast. The bad bit was the check in, we arrived and got told our... More

As international teachers living in Morocco, we stopped off in Tangier before heading to Spain on the ferry the following day. For the most part the Rif & Spa delivered on everything we were hoping for. The hotel is located very close to both the ferry port and the train station.The hotel was beautiful as were the pool and pool... More

Had a view of the ocean, which was nice, but the noise and the crowd at night was loud and there are many nightclubs below. The rooms were just okay and so was the bfast and dinner. Nothing special. The decor was pretty in some of the public rooms, but the staff was lacking any friendliness.

Very "french" service. You should fire to draw the staff's attention. The only possible language except their native one is french. No english. For about 20 min they tried to find my reservation. The location is good, the room was clean.

Nice hotel with a good sized twin room and bathroom overlooking the beach. We needed to leave early the next morning for the ferry to Spain so the staff arranged to bring an assortmemt of breakfast goodies to our room. The Winston Churchill Bar had impressive decor and was a great spot to relax. Unfortunately we had a bad experience... More

This place saved us after Hotel Continental lost our reservation. The lounge areas are beautiful and there's a nice little pool with a bar just inside. Everytime I think back about this hotel it just reminds me of some old las vegas hotel from the 70s. It's just got that vibe to it. You feel like there should be old... More
