This place is as picturesque as it gets. Bunch of photo ops everywhere you look especially if you live for the gram. My girlfriends obsessed with this place for obvious reasons but I also really enjoyed my time being unplugged and relaxing here. Definitely recommend riding the free bikes around, waking up for the complimentary breakfast and relaxing at the... More

We were very excited to stay here and spent numerous hours reading reviews and information about Korakia. We arrived for check in and instantly realized (unbeknownst to us) there are two cats that live and roam freely on the grounds. This was a problem because my wife has an incredible fear of cats - had we known we would not... More

This place is a great spot for a fun, relaxing weekend getaway or even a nights stay. It's romantic and peaceful. I don't recommend this hotel for large groups or if you are looking to party. I really enjoyed my stay here. I loved the two sides (Moroccan & Mediterranean). There is enough action with other guests yet not too... More

The Moroccan-Mediterranean Korakia Pensione combines historical memory (Winston Churchill once stayed in the Moroccan Villa) with a need for a near-by escape from 24/7 media (there are no TV's or phones to distract you from the delights of the desert). Simplicity is sometimes the best medicine--each room or suite differs from the others and all are well-described on the website... More

Just to establish at the beginning that the Korakia is one of the most charming, elegant and beautiful places we have ever stayed in. Now, a few little problems: Many people like to read before falling asleep. It woud be good to have a lamp with decent lighting on each side of the bed. The little white cloths on the... More

I would not plan on coming here if you have a group larger then 3. Especially if you are all girls. The management and security will ask you to leave. No talking around the pool or having fun with your friends if you are more then 3.

I do not have enough positive things to say about this place. I recently stayed here with a friend for a weekend getaway in the desert. Seems like Korakia is more of a couples place, but we didn't mind one bit. The surroundings are drop dead gorgeous and the atmosphere is relaxing and peaceful. Kids under the age of 13... More

This beautiful hotel feels like you have left the country. The hotel was originally built in the 20's and the operators have kept just enough vintage pieces and vibes to keep the character of the place, while updating it enough to make it comfortable. There is not a restaurant on site but they have a very good french restaurant nearby... More
