Villa Mandarine is an excellent place to chill and stay - I only had two nights here but I intend to return for an extended holiday. The atmosphere of the Villa is quite exceptional. The room (30) included absolutely everything one would need to be comfortable. I am usually able to note the 'little things' missing in a standard chain... More

Basic lack of skills and/or training of middle management in this hotel led to a very unsatisfactory stay. After a long day travelling and sightseeing we arrived hot, tired and dusty at the Villa Mandarin in Rabat, only to find that the hotel had incorrectly reserved only one, rather than two, bedrooms for our party of two couples and the...

Spent a night here while traveling Morocco. The facility is wonderful, an old villa restored to a hotel. Sitting on our patio and looking at the gardens was delightful. The room was fine, no complaints. Breakfast was very good and included. Service was very good,a place we would stay again should we end in Rabat. The location is maybe not... More

Only got to stay one night, and was very sad not to spend more time in the magnificent gardens surrounding the hotel. The rooms were lovely and the service excellent. Our room had it's own patio, perfect for sipping very good morning coffee. The breakfast buffet was fine and our dinner excellent. would return for a longer stay next time.

We stayed one night at Villa Mandarine and found the hotel to be very pleasant with good service, an excellent dinner and an adequate breakfast. It was also lovely to get away from city chaos and be surrounded by beautiful gardens (unfortunately we did not have time to use the pool or spend time in the garden). We did however... More

Nested in the quiet diplomatic area of Rabat, once you cross the gate, you feel like you are in a "peaceful haven". Walking around the garden at night after dinner is like a walk in paradise. The orange smell is strong enough to send you to the 7th haven. I hope one day, I will have a miniature garden like... More

Really lovely hotel with great use of colours and space in the rooms and public reception areas. We ate in the hotel restaurant for both lunch and dinner and the food was excellent on all occasions. The service at dinner on out first night was a little slow but I think they just had fewer staff on duty, but we... More

We enjoyed our stay at Villa Mandarine. It's in the quiet diplomatic area of Rabat, so you need a way of getting into the main tourist areas in the centre. It's too far to walk.

We spent a very pleasant evening at this hotel in Rabat. The staff were pleasant and our room was clean, spacious and comfortable. We ate dinner there too. It was very nice to feel safe after three nights in questionable riads.

Villa Mandarine was so beautiful, it felt as if you were in a private home, but with the convenience of a hotel. The idea that a family runs this place added to the great charm. The gardens were gorgeous, and just walking the property was a pleasure. The dining room and outdoor terraces were lovely. Our room had every possible... More
