“Hospitality at its best”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 11, 2013

Great bet for first time visitors to Marrakech who might find a central hotel overwhelming. Perfectly located with beautifully manicured lawns and gardens. I've been to La Mamounia, Kasbah Agafay and Amanjena and it was really important to us to find a smaller, more intimate, quiet riad that served traditional food. Spot on. We were so very well looked after - staff were charming, helpful and committed to making sure we had everything we needed - what lovely LOVELY people. Can highly recommend staying on site for supper for one or two evenings (ask to have your table laid outside facing to pool, gorgeously romantic). Tagines were delicious and if their nougat parfait is on the menu, go for it! Can highly recommend for a long weekend destination from London. Great for couples who want to get away from city life!

If you are looking for a destination in the heart of Marrakech then stop reading ..... This is a marvelous place to stay with the most amazing welcome from a very lovely and cosmopolitan family who hail from Rabat. The fact that it is a short distance outside the city centre was a welcome relief for us - this is an oasis from the (significant) hustle and bustle of the Medina. They have a shuttle bus into the centre which we used daily and the short 15 minute journey is a good opportunity to plan a day out or relax after a meal in Jamma el-fnaa.

We travelled with children and Hakim upgraded us to a villa which was just ideal. The kids loved the private pool and we had some really good Moroccan food in the Ryad. Nothing is too much trouble for them and all of the family speak perfect English. The kids loved breakfast here - carb fuelled but subtly different every day.

Hakim organised a driver to take us to the Atlas Mountains for the day and also the transfer to our next destination. Hakim went well beyond the call of duty to make sure our return journey went smoothly and it really did make a massive difference having him onside.

Terra Mia absolutely deserves its Tripadvisor rating. You won't be disappointed.

Room Tip: The Ryad is lovely but the extra touch of a private pool with a villa is best if your budget allows.

If you've stayed for a few days in the Medina, Terra Mia is a welcome retreat.

We spent 4 nights in the beautiful Riad (there are also villas with private pools scattered around the grounds). The room was huge, comfortable and very good value, especially given that we were one of only two couples staying there, so had the pool almost to ourselves.

The food was good, but nothing special (a bit too salty for my liking). The service was also fine, if a little impersonal at times; although that may have been on purpose, because it would have been weird if they were hanging around when it was only the two of us at the hotel.

Room Tip: We didn't bother with a massage or hammam, as they were pretty expensive compared to the Medina.

Stayed in Atlas Villa for 7 days with my wife and two sons (14 and 17 years). We were treated brilliantly. Collection and return to the airport, and a free shuttle to Marrakech we felt like royalty. The villa with private pool was a perfect tranquil location and ideal layout for family. The grounds were lovely and the evening food (trad. Morrocan) fantastic. Breakfast was exceptional (pancakes, omelettes, bread, youghurts, melon etc)The personal touches from the staff ensured even my very difficult son ate well. Temp (44+), would happily have stayed longer. A wonderfully run family business, who take great pride in the hotel and the services that the offer. Highly reccommended.

We spent two nights at Terra Mia, and had a lovely time. The place is beautiful and very well taken care of. It´s a 20 min drive to the centre of Marrakech, but there´s no hassle at all, as there´s a free transfer a couple of times per day (apart from the transfers to the airport). The staff are really helpful, the rooms spotless, spacious and elegant. The swimming pool and gardens are the perfect treat to relax after the buzz of the city. Would definitely recommend the stay to families and couples looking for some relaxing luxury time in Marrakech.

We spend last week in Terra Mia, highly recommended, wonderful place, we have a lovely time the 3 of us, excellent food, peaceful, lovely garden, confortable, clean, elegant, child friendly. The vilas are the best place if you have a child.

We are going back next year!

Thank you Hakim and the staff.

Terra Mia was recommended by a friend who travelled during the Easter break.

I liked this place a LOT. And unfortunately for me, I'm one of the fussiest, most easily annoyed guests around. But hats off to Hakim and the team for creating a really fabulous holiday in the sun.

The Riad (main building) itself is great but private villas are truly exceptional. They are HUGE with high ceilings and a genuine sense of calm and privacy. The private pools are also full-size (on a completely different level from the regular plunge pools that I was expecting). They are brilliant value for what you get and could accommodate a family of 4 or two couples very easily.

As noted in other reviews, the service is excellent. This is a place that really does seem to want to do everything to impress. For example, I'd wander over to lunch and by the time I came back my villa would have been cleaned, towels replaced, etc. It felt very well organised and attentive.

The food is also excellent and good value. It's genuine home cooking from a lady who really knows what she is doing in the kitchen. I was there for 6 nights and never got sick of it. The lamb tagine with prunes was my favourite. The beers are expensive by international standards (about 6 euros for 330ml), however, if like me you like to sit around the pool and drink lots of bottles!

The location is unusual in that it's a 25 minute drive to the city. Normally I'm the type who wants to be right in the middle of the action. But this is Marrakech. It's completely manic and to be honest I enjoyed being out in the sticks in the peace and quiet. Terra Mia offers a good balance - far enough away to peaceful but close enough to be accessible. I kept meaning to go back into the city but found myself putting it off until tomorrow, and the next day, and the next day. Very lazy! But life seemed better by the pool...

Room Tip: Go for the villas if you can afford it.
