Atlas Rif and Spa

4.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

First off, we have stayed at many Atlas hotels in different cities in Morocco. This is by far the worst. Outdated rooms, lack of air conditioning and false advertising of amenities just touch the surface of the downfall of this place. We asked to change room due to air conditioning issues. When We were reissued a room, it had another family staying in it. I went back down to the front desk and they reissued us another. When I asked if they needed the key for the old room back, they told me I needed it to transfer the baggage myself. I don't have a problem doing that, and in fact feel more secure doing it myself, but the fact that their system gives me another person's room is concerning. And , even though they advertise it, there is no safe in the room. Nor is there a refrigerator. While dealing with the room, there was another gentleman at the desk dealing with 30 + charges on his room that weren't his. See, they have this archaic system and had a STACK of receipts that was probably going to take them all day to get through considering their slow pace. We started to take pictures of the receipts to prove our usage of the "amenities". I was told that this is because it was this week and it wasn't normally like this. It was a July ...where no special holiday, regardless of culture, is happening. I told the bartender who said this that this is really a 2 star hotel by US standards. Other issues include sub par towels, a "life" guard who I wouldn't trust with any life and food that is on a menu but not available. Book at the Royal Tulip...the Dutch do it right.

The hotel is a little tired but utterly charming (it will be undergoing a refurbishment soon) but at £37 for 2 including breakfast worth every penny and some. The staff are very friendly and helpful and the views are great. It's an oasis of calm and only a 10 minute walk from the hustle and bustle of town. Would definitely recommend

I was there for a week and I noticed a big difference in the rooms. A lot of them have not been renovated in spite of getting the 306 or 510 with sea view. The problem is the WiFi that is non existent in the room compared to my previous stays. I usually go every 3 months to this hotel. The staff has changed and no longer the same. They cater to the customer but some young and inexperienced staff should not be at the front desk. The entrance hasn't been done for quite a while and the side walk is unfinished therefore it is dangerous when you walk on it. Also the hotel has changed its name and is no longer called Rif & Spa rather Hotel Rif Beach. Breakfast has changed also and is very limited with no variety. The hotel advertises Free Parking. NOT TRUE at all. Parking is at your own risk on the side streets and good luck to find one at night. I will be looking for another hotel in my next stay in Tangier.

I try to say more that what mere words of title say.And so it is in this case To write the review search for "RIF and Spa Hotel".Failed as it was not listed Some efforts revealed that "Atlas Rif Front Beach Tangier" already listed with Trip Advisor and the hotel of my intended review " RIF and SPA" are one and the same.(see my photos).To avoide confusion some standardisation should be maintained to have only one name for same property. RIF and Spa Hotel is very good .because:- Ideally located. Right across the port area with great view. Ambience , Decor and general layout is very good. Staff is well behaved and coureuos. We had only breakfast there .It had normal varities expected at a hotel of this standard . It was good . Selection and quality if fruits was good.Other meals were taken whereever our fancy took no comments about those. A good place to stay when in Tangier.

Wonderful location, walking distance to Medina and train station. Beautiful architecture and wonderful service. Amazing views of the new marina and Spain across the Straight of Gibraltar. Lovely breakfast and bar for an evening drink by the pool.

This hotel isn't that far from the bus or train stations and is pretty much opposite the beach. Unfortunately when we were there bad weather meant we couldn't use the beach or the pool area. However we did use the bar, the room was fine and the restaurant and other facilities seemed solid.

We get to the hotel given the port ferries were cancelled due to bad weather. Everything was clean and for one night it was really equilibrated given the good price. A lit bit old and room service deficient. Front desk really kind and consumer centric.

This hotel is centrally located. It's in front of the harbour and beach walkway. The Medina is nearby but be prepared and fit to walk in this area as there are many steps and winding paths. The aroma of coffee, restaurant and the diversity local and the Souk market can be experienced and appreciated. I visited the tomb of Ibn Battuta that can be quite strenuous to get there. A must visit. The hotels breakfast interesting and has a wide selection and well presented. The hotel gets a vote 3.8/5

Hotel grounds and furniture are nice. No internet in the rooms and the front desk staff are abysmal. Don't ask anything especially to the young chap with glasses his reply will make you want to jump over the desk and deck him. Food was horrible, we ended up eating out the rest of our stay. On the other hand the guy at the bar was really nice and friendly makes good cup of mint tea too! Also if your planning on staying in this hotel make sure u get a high floor, we stayed on the third level and we got woken up constantly throughout the night with the traffic, cars beeping and also there is a night club just around the corner. Overall this hotel is in a good location.

I stayed at this hotel 2 nights. It was fine. Rooms were just ok, little dingy, older style, but they were clean and the service was good. The price was right and the location on the beach front was good. Security seemed ok, across the street throughout the night there were police forces walking in two's and threes. I did not eat at the hotel but there were restaurants in the local area that were fine. It was an easy walk to places from this hotel. Not the best, but it was adequate and the price was right. I liked the views.
