L'Amphitrite Palace in Skhirat, Morocco
You saw the medieval spires of Fez, rode the whirlwind of wares and spices in Marrakech’s souk, and now you’re here at L'Amphitrite Palace – part of the collection of – for some well earned down time on one of the North Atlantic’s prettiest beaches. Guests come to L'Amphitrite to unwind – the whitewashed compound is in an isolated area and indeed feels like palace, where many of the rooms afford sea views. If the pull of the tides isn’t strong enough to reset your system, book a session in one of the spa’s hydrotherapy huts surrounded by spindly palms.
Order a traditional Moroccan breakfast: stacks of corn-sesame pancakes soaked with raw pressed olive oil and loads of honey, fresh fruit, and tart homemade raib yogurt. Relish a lazy morning by the beachfront infinity pool, which cascades in levels toward the shore. Go for a stroll as the sun turns the sky deep shades of pink and purple.

Reviews for L'Amphitrite Palace
The L'Amphitrite Palace Resort & Spa Skhirat is an adequate hotel in a beautiful location that could be so much more. It suffers from lack of attention to detail, poor management oversight, and inadequate maintenance / utility facilities. Location: The L'Amphitrite is located on Skhirat Beach about 20 minutes south of Morocco's capital, Rabat, and just next door to one of the Moroccan King's 14 palaces. It's a beautiful location. I have stayed here three times to date. It is the nicest beach, and beach hotel, within 30 minutes of Rabat. Check-in: The check-in process is interminably slow. There are four check-in / check-out desks that are usually occupied, but only one person is actually checking anyone in. On our most recent visit, after we had completed the requisite paperwork, we were told our room wasn't ready (we arrived at 14:30) and would require 10 more minutes. As we live in Morocco, we knew that meant we needed to waste an hour or more, so we went to lunch. We returned to the front desk(s) nearly two hours later expecting to simply retrieve the room keys, but instead started the painfully slow check-in process anew, albeit with a different clerk. Upon arriving in the room, we realized that they had not given us a WiFi password so we dialed the front desk from the room phone. No one answered. Ever. The Room: The rooms come in four "grades": beach front, sea side, sea view, and city side. Due to costs, we opted for sea view; it simply means that you can see a bit of the ocean between the other buildings. Our room was spacious, nicely appointed, and clean, with a large balcony fitted with a table and chairs. On the downside, the sliding glass doors would not close completely, leaving a one inch gap. I asked the housekeeper about it and she said "that's the way it is"... And she was right as during a previous stay we had the same issue in a different room. Which brings me to air conditioning / heating. Simply put, neither are adequate. I don't know whether this is a builder's issue or a money-saving ploy but the lack of suitable air conditioning / heating is common throughout Morocco... As is the lack of hot water. In this case the water pressure in the bathroom was just adequate, but the water temperature never got above lukewarm; another issue quite common in Morocco. The room has a minibar, but it was unstocked, which contrasts with our two previous stays where the bar was barely stocked and fully stocked. We wouldn't have touched the alcohol in any case due to fear of pricing... On a previous stay, we paid $60 at the poolside bar for a pitcher of Sangria! WiFi: One day some enterprising soul will figure out that A/C, hot water, and decent WiFi are the holy trinity of the hotel guest experience, and strive to ensure that all are up to speed. But, that hasn't happened yet and the WiFi at this hotel was barely adequate, kicking us offline every 5-10 minutes. Tipping: Yes, please do! But, as in nearly all Moroccan businesses, only the owner or his direct representative are permitted to handle cash, thus our request to change a 200 dirham bill (~$20) at the front desk - so that we might tip some of the staff - turned into a 20-minute quest that was finally solved when a couple of bellboys dug into their pockets. Positives: a. The grounds are beautifully maintained; buildings, not so much. b. The staff, as are people throughout Morocco, were very friendly and welcoming. c. The beach side pool is very nice but too small and without sufficient seating to accommodate even a tenth of the potential guests. d. The restaurants are fine... They're not gourmet but neither are the prices. Our room service breakfast one morning was excellent. On another morning, our restaurant buffet breakfast was adequate but the staff was unable to keep up with the largely western guests' demand for coffee.

This was our first visit to Morocco, and we certainly enjoyed our break. Hotel was well kept, clean, tidy and the views are breathtaking! If you plan to leave the resort, to Rabat city centre, this can work out to be quite dear, as only certain taxis have the ability to travel from town to town. Our overall stay was very pleasant, all the staff were friendly, helpful and accommodating. We came across a few issues on our first day, more so because we were unaware of the surrounding areas. However, Mohammad Bounain who is chief concierge was happy to go out of his way to ensure we were completely satisfied by the end of our trip. I would also like to name the hotels driver Saeed, who accompanied us to Casablancaâ€™s famous Hassan Masjid. He made us feel very comfortable, and although there was a language barrier, he catered to us to the very best of his ability. Happy to stay here and would recommend and re visit.

Upon arrival we were greeted by front desk staff who were excellent (especially Meryem and Hind who looked after us throughout our stay.) I stayed for 7 nights at the hotel and everyday would come back to a perfectly clean room. The beach and pool were the best part of the hotel and we visited these everyday without fail. The service provided at the hotel was exceptional and I would not stay in any other hotel when visiting Morocco. Our stay was more expensive than expected but I can say with confidence that it was well worth the price. 5 star!!!!

Perfect location! Very comfortable accommodations and truly amazing staff. Our new home away from home . First time stay in this hotel and not disappointed with anything. Definitely a 5 star visit! Amazing spa with super pool. Special mention to coach Said on the gym, he was beyond helpful, would strongly recommend to use the gym. Great stay - will definitely stay again.

My husband and I stayed here for one night on our drive from Marrakech to Tangier. We were able to check in an hour early and were welcomed by mint tea and cookies. Our room was clean and comfortable, the pool was amazing, and the food (dinner in the restaurant and the morning buffet) was delicious. We had a nice stay and would recommend the hotel to others!
