We went on Friday, so don't do that. You cannot see very much as Friday is a holy day in Morocco. Still, it was interesting to walk around the grounds as our friends told us a bit about the history of the monarchy in Morocco....More

This came last in my feedback rankings following my recent Morocco tour. Put bluntly, this is boring. The palace which is pretty dull anyway is viewed from some distance and given that you are standing in a vast uninteresting space doesn't put one in the...More

The palace area is well worth a visit. The gardens are beautiful and tranquil. The entire area is huge and the guards are very polite. Put in the list for places to visit in Rabat if you have time.

The Royal Palace kind of sums up Rabat for me. We were on a tour from Casablanca (not my favourite way to see things), and pretty well everything we saw in Rabat was nice without really being particularly interesting. As has been noted by others,...More

We were going to visit a royal palace! We were excited! The reality was not exciting. We walked past large squares and civil servants hurrying to work to look at the gate. That's all we saw. The gate guarded by various troops, with the Moroccan...More

The palace grounds are very spacious, containing not only the administrative and domestic complexes, but also a mosque, school, and servant's quarters. There ar 43 builings, veritably a city within a city. The present King Mohammed VI lived in Sale as a prince, and has...More

This place is green and interesting. Not too much to see, but we did see the horse ps of the palace. The guards won’t let you near the front of the palace. But you can look at the gardens, flowers and fountains.

The Royal Palace in Rabat is a worthwhile stop on any tour of Morocco’s capital. The palace grounds include beautiful trees and gardens as well as elegant buildings, including the residence of the royal household, a mosque and of course the palace itself. The only...More

Well kept buildings and landscape. However just one of many such palaces which is never occupied by the current King. Seems a glorious waste of state funds. A shame that one can only admire from a distance as not permitted to enter or even get...More

When we heard we could enter if the King was not in we thought it meant the palace ....but it meant the grounds. They are huge and interesting but no big deal if you miss it

It is not possible for tourists to meet with the king. In fact, unlike many European palaces, it is not possible even to visit the interior of the palace. (The Royal Palace in Rabat is also not the current king’s actual... More
