We had a beautiful Seaside room. Fresh roses in our room. Fantastic breakfast. Fabulous staff. The pool and lunch at the sister Maroc was heaven. We loved this hotel and the city. I had a hammam!!! Very special.

The staff were very accommodating and one of the the owners (Cornelia I belive) was wonderful. The villa itself was quite amazing ikn its design and construction and with all of the decorative elements incorporated into that. And the villa is very clean. Having breakfast on the terrace was amazing and the food was fabulous. Dinners in the small rooms... More

Hosts were welcoming and helpful. They listened to our comments and were understanding, even offered us a different room to accommodate our needs. However we were there during off season so this probably can’t always be expected. Hint: if you are a light-sleeper mention this when booking a room, as we were placed in a lovely "tower" Sea View Suite... More

We were mainly staying in the sister hotel (Les Jardins) but decided to have one night here in the medina for variety. Particularly notable is that the staff are very friendly and helpful. However, the room itself was very average and certainly in need of modernisation: Small, no AC and the window shutters were broken so could not actually be... More

Stayed at Le Jardin, which is like a county retreat belonging to Villa Maroc. It was quiet and peaceful and the food was divine...homemade Maroccan cuisine. We were the only ones staying and the service was fantastic as was the pools. No hassle for driver to shuttle us in and out of town for shopping and sight seeing.

Quaint guesthouse/riad with exceptional details throughout the entire property. The guest rooms are beautifully furnished with local art and craft pieces - you almost feel like you're staying in a comfortable museum. Throughout the riad, there are 'amuse les yeux' - little tasty feasts for your eyes, from the unexpected fresh flowers perched in a pitcher on a table, to... More

You describe our hotel as we see it. Thank you so much. Villa Maroc are four beautiful, interconnected moroccan houses full of roses, antiques, original paintings and moroccan hand craft. Fantastic views from the roof terrace. Home made food. Ideally situated just next to the Moulay Hassan square and 2 minutes to the beach. Looking forward to welcoming you soon. More

I can't rate this accommodation highly enough and really wish there was a sixth star as it was really that good. From the moment we arrived we were made to feel so welcome by the waiting staff in the restaurant and served a delicious meal. The hotel arranged transfers for us from Marrakech after our flights from Dublin. Incredibly long... More
