We were completly seduced already at the first steps into this luxurious hotel. The Ryad has been refurbished with a lot of taste. The place is clinically clean and the staff is very welcoming, discrete and friendly...In fact they make you feel at home instantly...They have a working Wifi and cable TV and they didnt mind emptying the Minibar for our bottles of water.
Whilst checking in, they served us Moroccan tea and later they came with complimentary cold drinks and moroccan olives to the room. We were 2 couples, extensive travellers, sharing the huge "May16th Suite" this suite has a terass with breathtaking views over the entire Rabat City and on the roof terrass you will find the entire 360 view with the Oudayas and the ocean as well...we could have our meals served there if we wanted.
One morning we woke up quite late but the staff were still waiting for us for breakfast servings.
The hotel is very quiet and the only thing we heard was bird songs all day long.
The rooms are clean, spacious with very comfortable and large beds and if we could take the bed linens back home with us we would have!!
The location is perfect, round the corner from the old city (medina) and the Fort of Oudayas where we recommend a moroccan tea at the ocean front café.
Many different restaurants in walking distance as well as the Dhow, an old wodden boat in the Marina where we recommend a drink after diner (the food was average and expensive)
The Alcazar is an absolute must in Rabat and we are very happy to have found it both for leisure and business travel. Have a word with the owner if you meet him, he will tell you the story of this Ryad. Strongly recommended!
