Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

I’d usually write fairly short reviews for places we’ve stayed as a family, but Rebali and the amazing team are well deserving of a longer review. Short summary - If you’d like to experience Morocco in a welcoming, relaxing and beautiful environment, book straight away. Longer review - we traveled here as a family during February half term. We have two teenagers, age 17 and 14. It was their first trip to Morocco. Mohammed and Fatima (and their amazing team) are the absolute cornerstone of what Rebali offers. They have entirely mastered how to provide amazing holiday service, without being overbearing. Their quiet, considerate and friendly approach perfectly matches the laid back and relaxing atmosphere of the whole place. I can’t commend the team highly enough. We stayed in one of the three bedroom villas with private pool. There’s a lot more space in the Riads than you’d imagine. The breakfasts and evening meals (if you choose to stay in to eat) are amongst the best food we’ve had in Morocco. You can have meals served in your accommodation, or at the shared outdoor dining area. The gardens and Rebali surroundings are beautiful. The three resident tortoises set the pace of life! If you want a break in the sun and a chance to kick back and do very little, Rebali is ideal. There are also plenty of choices of things to do. Mohamed can arrange everything for you. We did quad biking on the dunes (10/10), on site Hammam (10/10) and a highlight for the whole family was spending the afternoon and evening with a local Moroccan family, cooking in their home after buying ingredients in the market. Both the kids were a bit skeptical about doing that at first - and it is probably as close as you’ll get to real Moroccan life - but they both said it was the highlight of the trip. The beach is huge and the waves are amazing for surfing. It’s about a 30 minute (100 Durham) taxi ride into Essouaria. Taxis to and from Rebali can be pre-arranged and they were always at the pick up spot to bring us back I the evening. We’ve had a lovely trip. Thank you so much to Mohamed and Fatima. This is the 17th country we’ve visited as a family and they are far and away the best hosts we’ve ever had the pleasure of meeting. Such kind and generous people. Tip 1: agree with the other reviews - shove your own tennis racket in your luggage if you want a game. Tip 2: spend more time here than you think you’ll need. It’s the antidote to the hustle and bustle of Marrakech.

We had a fantastic 4 night stay here, strongly recommend. We stayed in the slightly separate villa, across the track from the main entrance. It's got three large bedrooms, a large living room/kitchen and a great pool area plus roof terrace. Beautifully laid out. We really loved our stay, secluded from the slight bustle of Sidi Kaouki and really restful. The team there are wonderful, a great breakfast and dinner was delivered to us each morning and evening and we really rested.

Our stay at Rebali Riad has been exceptional. We had a fantastic personalised service from Mohammed and Fatima ranging from organising a fabulous cooking experience to a delicious meal delivered to our Riad. The beach is just across the road, where the kids could attempt to surf, boogie board and could have engaged in quad biking, horse or camel riding if required. The lazier parents just lay by the pool or walked along miles of empty beach watching the sun go down. Perfect!

What a fantastic location. The riads are much more beautiful than we expected, the pictures don't really do them justice. The team are wonderful, the whole place is so well run and nothing is too much trouble - we felt so at home there. And the FOOD! Wow, such delicious food. Thank you so much Fatima, Mohamed and the Rebali Rad team. We will be back next year...

We recently spent 4 nights at this charming Rebali. The villas are beautifully done up, with every need catered for. The most lasting memory of our stay was the warmth of the welcome we received from Mohamed, Fatima and the entire team; nothing was too much trouble and they were so friendly and attentive. The highlight for us was having breakfast or dinner brought to us outside the villa. A special place, highly recommend.

Nice Riad, staff is welcoming and very professional. We stayed at Riad Valmar where everything was perfect. Enough rooms and salons for all family member to enjoy. The pool was perfect for the kids and the beautiful beach is at less than 2 minute of the riad. Perfect for a family trip!

We loved the whole experience. Sidi Kabuki is a very chilled surf village and we loved how un-spoilt it is. Mohamed and Fatima were friendly, relaxed, kind and extremely helpful and made out stay truly lovely. The riad itself was great, just the right level of modern sophistication while maintaining a very Moroccan feel. The breakfasts were fresh and delicious and we really enjoyed the food created for the evening meals - always plentiful and delicious. The pool was very nice and we loved having use of the tennis court and ping pong...and the games and DVDs. Small touches, but really lovely and made the experience home-like. We didn't ever join for the tea at 4pm because we were doing other things, but we did notice that other guests joined it liked it. The massage was great too! We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would highly recommend it for families or couples.

We stayed at Ribali at the end of a Morocco tour and it was an excellent choice. Beautiful villa with pool and walking distance to beautiful beach where you can go horseriding, camel riding, surfing or just walk along it with no hassle. Easy trip into Essaouira, don't miss it. Fantastic place. Staff at Ribali are so friendly and welcoming, helpful and will arrange anything you need including evening meals etc. Fantastic choice, very highly recommended.

Due to the earthquake we needed to change our travel plans and this villa complex was suggested by our travel agent. It was a great find. Very clean spacious villa with an amazing pool. A short walk from the beach, where you could watch surfer, horse riding and take a camel ride. The staff were very welcoming and provided excellent breakfast. We enjoyed two evening meals in the villa gardens. After two days we were sorry to leave .

Our tour company (Fleewinter) booked us in to Rebali Riads on the third leg of our amazing Gastronomy Tour set up by them. We ended up having a whole villa with a private pool all to ourselves at Rebali - fantastic! Mohamed, Fatima and all the staff went out of their way to make sure we were looked after like royalty. The food at the riad was first class (both breakfast and dinner). Mint tea and excellent home made cake was served every day, and was a lovely way to meet other guests from around the world. During the 5 days we were at Rebali, we went on a Camel Trek & Picnic, visited a Berber Village for lunch and learned about argan oil, and our favourite outing was a trip to Essaouira to meet, shop, cook and eat with a local family - a fascinating experience (highly recommended). The surroundings at Rebali are stunning, but its people make it extra special!
