El Morocco Inn and Spa is a top notch experience in every way! The ambiance is magical, the rooms unique and carefully appointed, and the spa services the best I have ever experienced. The staff is attentive to needs but respectful of privacy. We LOVE El Morocco and our only problem is not being able to go more often because... More

My husband and I wanted to take a quick out of town trip and really weren't set on traveling to any place in particular. He found the El Morocco and felt that it would be a good match for our likes and preferences. We always like to stay in places that have a quirky charm but are also clean and... More

After a month of global travelling and chain hotels I was in the PSP area on business and craved something more intimate. I happened on reviews of the El Morocco and was surprised I hadn't discovered this hotel earlier after all my PSP visits, so I had to try it. I arrived around 3 from LA, and was immediately charmed... More

The first thing we noticed upon arriving was how wonderfully scented the rooms and outside area was. We stayed there for 5 nights at the end of October. We had the first room as you enter the compound. It was surprisingly quite! The room was very clean, staff is very accommodating . The pool and spa were also very clean,... More

We stayed at this glorious place as part of our honeymoon (August 2013) and had a very special time there. The place is majestic. Decorated with attention to detail and precision. You feel as of you are in Morocco itself. The pools are so inviting especially with the heat of the climate. The service is so, so good. What makes... More

The first time we visited El Morocco was about four years ago during the summer. It was pretty hot then -- 110+ -- but the glorious pools, the comforts and atmosphere at El Morocco made us forget the heat. This time around the weather was perfect, which only enhanced the two days we recently spent here. Even though it was... More

It's very quiet so if you just want to chill or just finish a book this is the place to be. We stayed for 2 nights to break the monotony of living in LA and it did not disappoint. I love the smell when you enter the door as if you where transported to far away land. I like the... More

The minute you walk through the front door you feel transported. This wonderful gem is a must. My mother and I decided to go for a mini getaway. It is clear that a lot of thought and care went into this place. Our room was very comfortable, with the plushest bed I've ever slept on! I loved all the beautiful... More
