Reviewed 23 June 2013

We stayed only one night at this beautiful villa after flying into Casablanca Airport from Europe.
We were blown away with the beauty and tranquility of this amazing villa.

The colours in the garden were incredible and the decor inside the house were incredible.
The food was excellent and the service. Couldn't fault it in any way, wish we could have stayed there for a few more days

Villa Mandarine is a very cute, beautiful, charming hotel. It's the perfect harmony of nature, Moroccan traditional art and architecture, and modern facilities. The hotel is located in very lush and fertile grounds, surrounded by trees, plants, flowers from everywhere. I believe the property used to be a farm in the past. It always smells nice and you can hear the music of birds singing or water falling in the fountain in the central patio. Everywhere in the hotel is beautifully decorated, either by the owners with unique furniture and piece of arts, or by mother nature with gorgeous flowers and trees. There's a SPA in the hotel, an outdoors pool, Ping-Pong (table-tennis) table, billiard (pool) table, and plenty of corners to explore, and sitting areas to just relax enjoy being surrounded by beautiful paintings, pretty flowers and singing birds. You can even meet a peacock or two in the gardens. It's hard to believe that this absolutely quite and calm hotel is just a bloc away from a major busy avenue.

Room Tip: I believe all rooms have a view on a garden, patio or something beautiful. We stayed there twice, on...

The grounds of this hotel are beautiful and tranquil - very lush and colorful. The details of the decor are really stunning and what you would hope for to capture the culture. The room was very comfortable in all ways and had a gorgeous spacious bathroom, as well as a nice sitting area/balcony. The food was also quite good, excellent breakfast buffet and for dinner I recommend the lamb!

We stayed in this beautiful hotel for one night. The room was great as were the grounds and common areas. However, our experience was marred by the very unpleasant and rude person at reception. When we checked in, he was rather cold, and things were worse when we checked out. We settled our bill for dinner upon checkout and left. As we drove out, the guard at the gate told our driver that we had to go back. My husband and our driver went back into reception where we were accused of stealing the bathrobes. We had left them hanging in the bathroom on the hooks. Apparently, the housekeeper never looked there. The rude man barely apologized. A word to the next guests... Throw your robes on the floor and be prepared to not feel welcome and to be treated poorly. For the price of the room and the type of facility, they should train their staff at reception. We would recommend staying elsewhere!

Dear client,

First of all I want to apologize personaly for the bad treatment you have received at your departure from Villa Mandarine.
We made an extremly stupid error by excnanging two rooms on our planning (one single and your double).
We had forgotten two very important things : respect and communication !

I wish that you appreciate our room and garden.
we will do our best to avoid these inacceptable situation.

Sincerely yours

If travel takes you to Rabat area of Morocco, I cannot imagine a better hotel. The rooms were well appointed, the hotel quiet overall, and the staff very helpful. We arrived in the late evening and they made it easy for us to get relaxed. The breakfast buffet was excellent and they also made eggs upon request. We loved the center courtyard and orange trees. Such a nice hotel -- it was a surprise to us how wonderful it is.

Room Tip: We had standard rooms and they were good sized with balconies. Great bathroom amenities.

We stayed at the Villa Mandarine for over 3 weeks during a move to Morocco. The best thing about arriving at dusk was the beautiful scent of orange blossom and the romantic lighting. The decor is understated but very Moroccan. The gardens are lovely for strolling and the breakfast bar serves marmalades and jam made from the orchard fruits (the homemade yogurt at breakfast is amazing too). The rooms are peaceful and clean with unique touches in each. The pool can be a bit cold but is very nicely situated. The restaurant menu is top-notch, very yummy international and Moroccan cuisine (Fish tajine is a favorite). The staff were attentive and kind, especially to our 2 year old who, after 3 weeks, had the run of the place. We always take guests back for meals now that we have moved into our own home. Only complaint is the price tag but it certainly is an appreciated luxury.

We stayed at Villa Mandarine while on honeymoon only for a night. It was more of a travel break for us. The hotel was small and cosy. It was a good stay but slightly expensive.

The best part is their orange orchard - they have the best oranges in the world. We had not eaten such good oranges. Best was you could walk around and pluck out as many as you wanted. The best ones are ofcourse served in your room and at the breakfast table. Still remember the taste of the oranges!

Room Tip: A room facing the orange orchard / garden.
