“Fantastic suites, but otherwise quite expensive!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 14, 2013 via mobile

We stayed in the Noire & Or suite which was fantastic - large and with a wonderful bathroom. The hotel setting was lovely and we spent some very relaxing days by the pool!
Breakfast was good, but other than asking if we wanted tea/coffee or an omelette there was not choice!
We ate in the hotel the first night after a busy day, the quality was good but the portion size was small, choice limited and it seemed very expensive!
Take the shuttle bus which runs twice daily:
1000 - 1300
1900 - 2200
Into the main square and eat there, nobody else seemed to use this facility??
We asked the hotel to arrange some taxis, and it seemed a bit of a rip off £25 ish for a short return journey to a local supermarket?
Also check your bill, I'm sure ours was a genuine error, but there were some spa and mini bar charges that we didn't have.
Overall wiuld recommend, but with hindsight would have do e a few things differently!

A fantastic hotel. We stayed at Tigmiza during the second week of July and were extremely impressed. It is built to an very high standard indeed and the staff are extremely courteous and willing to assist.

The suite rooms were impeccably decorated, clean and well presented, with a good sized mezzanine sitting area and a lovely bedroom. The design of the hotel is its greatest selling point, the courtyard pool is beautiful, secluded and cool and views from different seating areas are nicely framed.

It is the perfect place to base yourself from if you want to balance the craziness of Marrakech with somewhere secluded and calm to escape to. There are shuttle buses in the morning and evening (10am drop off, 1pm pick-up and 7pm drop off, 10pm pick up) and the journey is around 15/20 mins. It would be good for Tigmiza to extend these times, or offer a third mid-afternoon shuttle service as well, particularly as the drop off point is a good 25 minute walk to the centre of the city, so it can feel a little rushed getting back in time.

It may have been because we were visiting Marrakech during the off-season (the July heat can be just a few degrees too hot for comfort) but the most noticeable thing about the hotel (as others have commented) is how few people are staying there at any given moment and how sparsely distributed they are. We were the only ones staying in any of the ten suites, with a few other couples staying in villas or pavilions. This can make it feel slightly like a ghost hotel some of the time as you are unlikely to run into other guests anywhere except the pool. It almost feels as if the hotel was built to be larger than it needed to be. Hopefully through word of mouth it is able to attract more and more guests, as it is clearly set up to accommodate them and deserves a good sized client base. At the moment it can lack a little atmosphere, particularly in the evenings after returning from the city.

Overall, and despite the need for a couple of tweaks here and there, it is hard to think of a better place to spend a few days in Marrakech and we would thoroughly recommend it.

Dear Mr Fraser,

Thank you very much for taking the time to write this review and give us your feedback.
We also want to thank you for your honesty which is helping us to improve ourselves.
However, you certainly know that summer is considered as a low season in Marrakech because of the heat and also the month of Ramadan, that is why most of hotels could seem empty in terms of occupation.
We are really sorry about this impression you had and we invite you to retry the Tigmiza experience during spring, fall or winter at your convenience.
Looking forward to have the chance to greet you again soon
Best Regards

We had a wonderful few days at Tigmiza.

The experience, from beginning to end, was absolutely phenomenal. They serve excellent Moroccan pastries and mint tea at your arrival and then again at every tea time. It is exactly like its representation in photos: romantic, relaxing…. All rooms are well described in internet so that everyone can choose what is best for them. We stayed at one of the Villas with a beautiful intimate covered terrace overlooking a small garden and a private swimming pool, .

attention to details and personalized service is what's in everyone's mind at Tigmiza, a splendid hotel in the unique Palmeraie and the magic of Marrakech

The spa and treatments we had were lovely, could have gone every day had funds permitted.

We really felt at home here and look forward to returning soon.

Absolute Luxury and Complete 5 Star experience.

We booked a 4 night stay at Tigmiza recently and we were pleased in general. The majority of my review will be negative but Tigmiza can improve in all of the areas below and very easily at that. Hence, the 'Very Good' rating.

Check-in was nice as we were warmly greeted on arrival and served with tea and snacks. However, when asked about tours and places to visit the reception person was unhelpful. We had many questions to ask but did not get the answers we expected but this was mainly due to the language barrier. The staff always try to help but seem inexperienced. We did not allow this to deter us from taking in the spectacular surroundings. The whole place is amazing! There is some maintenance required here an there but nothing major.

We stayed in Villa 2 and it was almost perfect. I say almost, as the 'private' pool area was not as private as we expected. The perimeter of the pool/garden area was only covered by some foliage and plant screens. On the day we arrived, I had to ask for more coverage/privacy and so they got a couple more plant screens, which helped but still not the 'privacy' we expected. We didn't allow this to spoil our holiday and so we made the most of our Villa. We spent the majority of our trip in our Pool Villa as planned.

The surroundings of our Villa were also not as expected due to work being carried out on neighbouring Villas and workers walking around the pool area every so often, so our relaxing time was occasionally disturbed. We did not complain about this as it may have caused a bad atmosphere between us and the staff and we did just wanted a nice holiday. I'm hoping Tigmiza will learn from all of the reviews on Tripadvisor.

Unfortunately trying to explain something would become frustrating, such as when we wanted room service or housekeeping. We made every effort to speak some French, but this only helped on a couple of occasions. The lack of telephone manner became apparent also when staff struggled to understand English, a simple hello or similar greeting was inexistent for a couple of staff. What we did not understand was why staff who did not speak English well, did not just pass the phone to someone who spoke better English? Trying to explain that we would like an iron and ironing board was not a simple request.

On the last day we had read in the room directory that there was a daily complimentary tea-time gourmet break but we were not informed of this. We would have loved to have known about this. I was then curious to find out if we had missed out on anything else and so I checked other reviews on Tripadvisor and the Tigmiza website. We found a deal regarding complimentary spa treatment when booking 3 nights at Tigmiza. Having had a massage prior to this knowledge, I would not have booked the massage as we would have had other complimentary spa treatment. Why spend money unnecessarily? Anyway, I mentioned this deal on the check-out the following morning and I was told that the offer is only provided if booking online and not via an agency. We were unhappy with this reason, considering this info was not mentioned online (althought it may be now) or why considering we have spent so much money, we did not receive anything complimentary other than the usual shampoo etc. Tigmiza should really take note, as some rivals offer more. Even a bottle of water a day would have been nice.

I really hope Tigmiza take note of my review as well as other reviews. They have the potential to be great!

My girlfriends and I just returned from morocco. We stayed 2 nights at tigmiza suites& pavilion. We had 3 beautiful theme based rooms and were greeted and introduced to the property by a very friendly Amin. The place was our haven from the busy and chaotic Marrakech. We were greeted with fresh orange juice & delicious local cookies and made really welcome. Would recommend Tigmiza as the hotel of choice in marrakech. With an in house movie theatre, private disco, bar, beautiful pools and terraces and quiet location, it's an ideal location.

Datin's club - wonder 7.

We spent three nights at Tigmiza Suites and Pavilions in mid June. We arrived late at night via the hotel arranged transfer and were greeted with fresh orange juice. Our room was large with a huge bath, separate shower and a very comfortable King sized bed.

The property is constructed to a very high standard and in addition to the individually styled suites in the main building there are larger apartments with small private pools and. There is a large pool surrounded by gardens and a smaller pool which we understand can be heated in cooler months. Given the high standard of the buildings we were surprised at the number of small native plants (weeds?) growing between the paving stones around the pool. Was this a Moroccan feature or just poor maintenance?

There is a Spa in the complex, as well as a cinema which can be hired for private viewings. We each had a massage in the spa which was very good.

Breakfast was served either in the restaurant or on a small patio. It was a very good continental breakfast with fresh fruit, toast, pastries, more of the wonderful orange juice and yogurt.
The hotel operates a shuttle to the Medina twice a day but the drop off/pick up point is about a 20 minute walk to the main square, from which one can enter the souks. The hotel is about a 20 minute drive to the medina which is just a little too far to be convenient.

We ate dinner once at the hotel and the food and service were good.

There was however one factor which was so notable during our stay. The hotel was deserted. We saw one other couple and aside from a few staff we saw no one else. This meant that there was no atmosphere with empty restaurants and no one in the lobby or around the pool. If you wanted to relax in luxurious surroundings and enjoy the quiet life then Tigmiza has much to offer. But you could do that at home. If you want to enjoy the colour, smells, vibrancy and cultural differences which make Marrakech such a fantastic destination you need to be prepared to travel in and out of the hotel regularly during your stay.

Obviously we were there at the end of the season and other guests have really enjoyed their stay at Tigmiza. It is a very well presented property and we would recommend it.
