Airport to Villa Mandarine?

What is the best way to get from the main airport in Rabat to Villa Mandarine? On the hotel's website there is mention of shuttle/taxi under "services", but I assume that means "at your own expense". Can anyone give me an idea of how long it takes to get from the airport to his hotel, and offer at least an educated guess on how much we can expect to have to pay for a taxi? Or will there be shuttles available and is the cost for those more or less than for taxis? Thanks for any info.

you can take bus shuttle for just 20 Dh (MAD) from airport to rabat train station, and then you can take a blue taxi for less than 15 Dh.

what is your date of arrival and the time ? which plane ? Ryanair, jetairfly, air france, vueling ..... ???

Not for sure yet. Still deciding. Does date, time or airline affect the price?

What would a cab straight to the hotel from the airport cost, if you know?

Thanks for your help!

There is a price list for taxis at the exit door of the airport, also on the taxi rank itself, which is a 30 second walk across the road on exiting the doors. You will find people asking if you want a taxi in arrivals lounge. Last week to get to Sale the fare was 150-200 mad, I think from memory yours would be 250. We got 13.3 mad to the £ in the airport exchange

Thanks a bunch, NorwichHomer! Does the rate stay the same if you are a couple rather than a single? The rate signs are helpful. Do they have destinations listed such as hotels or does it go by neighborhood, landmarks or distances?

for the bus shuttle, about timetable is easy, it's schedules are as flights of the day.

from airport to train station : One hour after the arrival of the plane

from train station to airport: 2 hours prior to departure of the plane

this is a image of google maps, three steps from train station gate to airport buses :
