When we arrived at the Dar El Kebira hotel, were were told that we had a room at "Dar El Kebira 2" and were escorted to another hotel a few streets away, where we seemed to be the only guests. The hotel was a fine traditional riad, but the decor was nothing like what I chose based on the photos....

When we arrived at the Riad we were somewhat surprised to see that our booking for a triple room for 3 single men comprised queen bed & a single. This was unacceptable, our hosts were really obliging & quickly found us an additional room in another Riad, at no cost to us. The fault lay with the tour operator &...

Everyone was so nice and hospitable. They gave us recommendations for places to go. They even gave us a ride!! So happy to have met our hosts and stayed here even for one night. My family and I took so many photos here just to remember the wonderful memories.

The Riad was really easy to find, sitting just off the Main Street that runs through the old medina, so we had no problems making our own way there! Upon entering the Riad we were blown away by the traditional Moroccan details that adorned the courtyard and received a warm welcome from the staff, who served us tea and dried...

Lovely and helpful staff. Location characterful. The whole interior decor was beautiful and authentic. Terrace excellent in summer. Food and room a little disappointing considering our expectations and the price. Rooms felt a little claustrophobic if you didn't have an outside window. Glass (room) door opened on to a public gallery.

We spent 2 nights at the Riad - it was beautiful - a lovely authentic Moroccan tiled courtyard where we were warmly greeted with mint tea and pastries. The staff was very attentive and accommodating - they started breakfast for us at 7:30 one morning upon request, which required staff to begin their day earlier. The room was spacious with...

This is quiet gentle Riad just off the Medina. Excellent roof terrace for breakfast and a good dining room. Our room was quiet and well-appointed. Easy parking nearby although quite difficult to find !!

We stayed in this Riad on two separate visit to Rabat during the same holiday at the beginning and again at the end. Amina Khayou was extremely gracious and helped us with anything needed (restaurants, sight seeing, car service, etc. ) as well as going out of her way to secure services at the best prices. Amina and her staff...

I really enjoyed my stay at Riad el Kebira, it was my favourite Riad in all of Morocco. The property is gorgeous, rooms well appointed, and staff is incredibly courteous and friendly.
