“A different perspective”
Reviewed 26 June 2013

Royal palaces are not usually for the subjects to use. This one his, Moroccans can walk and stay in the gardens and it's a very peaceful place to stay.

“You can't see much, so don't make this a priority”
Reviewed 10 June 2013

Tourists who look like tourists can sometimes walk through part of the grounds if no one important is around, and it is impressive to see some of the facilities from the outside.

“Very nice palace”
Reviewed 7 May 2013

I enjoyed walking around and not being bothered by guides who want to be tipped for any little thing. It was nice, relaxing and I loved the tiles and architecture of the palace.

“Grand buildings, but with no real surrounding atmosphere.”
Reviewed 6 May 2013

Arrived at Casablanca on the Thomson Dream cruise liner and opted to go on a tour of Rabat. Our tour guide appeared to be knowledgeable but we think that he was putting a gloss on things. On our way to Rabat we passed some dreadfully poor looking shanty towns where the people must live in real abject poverty only to be confronted with the cordoned off area in Rabat containing the Royal Palace. Our guide advised us that this was one of several palaces that the King had throughout Morroco. The buildings are very imposing and well laid out in amongst well tended gardens kept green with water continuously sprayed from hoses. One wonders however if the people living in the shanty towns have such ready access to clean water? However the only people going about the compound were parties of tourists. Other than men in uniform there were no local people to be seen so the area looked somewhat clinical and devoid of any real character.

“Worth a very quick look”
Reviewed 20 April 2013

The grounds of the palace are huge, but you can't go inside any of the buildings. It is worth a drive through, but not much more. We were told that all the beauty is on the inside. It's not worth much time.
