I accidentally booked a room at Villa Maroc. I realized my error and went to cancel the next day and was charged a full night's stay ($200+ USD), And this was with a reservation that was 3 months away. Absolutely ridiculous. Beware when booking with them.

According to the booking conditions at Expedia the first night is charged to guarantee the booking and is not refundable. In your case, with a booking three month prior arrival and a cancellation just one day after the booking, you should contact the hotel and not TripAdvisor to see what can be done. It is sad to see that online bookings become more important than a direct contact with the hotel.

We arrived for a 3 night stay. Location is perfect just in the Médina close to the Portuguese fort. Taros Bar and various high end restaurants in close walking distance. View out from the top balcony terrace is spectacular and you can never tire of watching those waves.

"Double bed room."
"All the rooms have surpassed our expectations. They are elegant in an understated chic way. "
"Sea-view suites are a little more expensive but worth it"
"Rooms on the ground floor to save walking up the steps or turning left and right all the time"
"Try for the tower suite - if you can manage the steep stairs the view is well worthwhile"
US$ 155 - US$ 266 (Based on Average Rates for a Standard Room)
