Having read lots of the reviews we were prepared to be disappointed on the basis Terra Mia couldn't be that good, but it is! From the first of our email enquires Hakim was excellent, extremely helpful and thoughtful. We had been concerned about the effects of the recent bomb but had an excellent holiday in part because the Riad itself is out of the city. We arrived ~ 8pm to be driven down a long drive which was lit in the dusk to show the Riad off to perfection. Hakim had organised us supper which was delicious. The following morning we were woken by birds and then had breakfast delivered daily to our extremely spacious private villa. All the facilities were great. Our boys (17 &15) loved the private pool but given there was only 1 other French couple staying when we visited ,they also had the main pool completely to themselves. It was blissful. Great food, really interesting activities ( organised v efficiently by Hakim) and perfect weather (~25c) . We used the hotel shuttle into Marrakech most days which was very convenient and ran to suit us. Eating in town was noticably cheaper than at the Riad but being able to have our dinner served at our villa was a luxury we all really appreciated. Hakim organised a day trip into the Atlas mountains which we all enjoyed including the aerobic climb to see the waterfalls after the various artisan retail stops en route. We visited the Bains de Marrakech on Hakim's recommendation - which was a very indulgent experience and well worth the money even though our eldest son was so relaxed he fell asleep twice! Marrakech was vibrant, noisey and exciting. Terra Mia was a very pleasant , tranquil refuge from all the bustle.
