“shoddy but not chic”
Reviewed 29 September 2012

This **** hôtel combined unhelpful staff with incomprehensible accents. The food was cold, when it should have been hot and vice versa. The room and pillows smelt of smoke and the spa was not available. The works on the new port are in front of the hotel and there is a noisy nightclub rattling through the dark until 3am. The parking facilities claimed are private and adjacent to the hôtel.
Having stayed in 4 other Tangier hôtels and numerous Moroccan hôtels I can have no bad conscience in strongly recommending that the Rif spa be used only by the uprepared.

Room Tip: try another hôtel

A grand hotel, where the public areas are visually very attractive. Room service was good, the restaurant ok.
Our stay was spoiled by the front desk. We booked in before our tour, and did not get off to a good start, as they had no record of our booking. This continued when on the second morning when we received a call to say we had to check out. After 1/2 an hour this was resolved.
Our tour guide was to contact us via the hotel, and when he arrived he was told by front desk that we were not staying here (when we enquired if there were any messages for us we were told no!) This meant we missed the first morning of the tour. Whilst I appreciate that my high school French language skills may have contributed to the confusion, front desk nowhere near good enough considering the four star rating.

Better then some 5 marrocan stars hotels. However the rooms should have a better windows to cancel the noize of the street. Exept from that the hotel is good to rest and relax for 2 nights.

They didn't have our reservation booked through Expedia and instead of getting us another room, they had us wait an hour in the lobby. Finally we left and found another hotel. And since they charged Expedia even though we didn't stay there, we couldn't get a refund! The WORST customer service we had in Morocco!

This hotel was lovely overall, however the check in at reception was slow and definately not 4star,, we found one particular member of the staff at reception to be rude, he never made eye contact with us actually I am not sure he even spoke to us, just took our confirmation and mumbled. We were left waiting for 2.5hrs for our room!! And if we had not chased him we probably would still be waiting!! But the hotel itself was 4star.. However it is not directly on the beachfront, you have to cross a busy road and walk a little to get to the beach... If I were to return to Tanger I probably would choose a different hotel!

Went to Atlas Rif & Spa Tanger by suggestion of a friend, who insisted that I should get a room with sea view on one of the highest floors. I did book a room with sea view and tried to request such location but unfortunately the hotel's web site is lost in time and the e-mail address indicated there is inoperative. Got to the hotel and was informed that there was no room with sea view available. I insisted in getting one because it was what I had paid for and after a little time did get one in the 4th floor. The room was spacious, with indeed a very nice view. The furniture was ok, even had comfortable chairs and a coffee table for sitting and reading a book while enjoying the view, but a bit oldish (as almost everything in the hotel) and, to my surprise, I had no hot water in the washing basin, just in the bath tub with shower.
The corridors and other common areas are almost sumptuously decorated, with some very nice carpets. Some wooden ceilings deserve a good contemplating look.
Breakfast is ok, without anything to really marvel us apart from very good Moroccan crêpes which would only be provided quite late. Hence, no crêpes in several days while I was there. Other goods' availability was also uncertain at times.
In all, I can't complain about the price/quality ratio, and indeed the hotel's location is very good. I wasn't thrilled but nothing was fundamentally wrong either. Won't mind to come back.

Room Tip: Rooms facing the pool will be quieter. However, a room with sea view, particularly in the higher flo...

Loved staying here. The view of the bay is spectacular. The staff was efficient. The room was spacious. The breakfast was great. On a main street but quiet in the rooms.
