Villa Diyafa is located in an exclusive part of Rabat and that is reflected in both the style and service. The bathroom in my suite was huge with a massive tub, separate water closet and shower with both rain and regular shower head! The walk-in closet had loads of storage and hanging space, so I had plenty of space to unpack after the long flight and reorganise myself. There is a very modern feature - you can pipe in music from lobby or hook to your own bluetooth all from a button on the wall.
