I was at this resort last week and cannot fault it. We paid about USD90.00 per night I think and what we got for our money is amazing.
Arrival:- Bags taken to our rooms, quick and easy checkin, complimentary mocktail and a quick tour of the premises so that we know where everything is.
Rooms:- Very spacious, comfortable, clean, all the amenities you could need or want, room service, TV (which works perfectly and has an english movie channel), complimentary bottled water, complimentary moroccan pastries.
Facilities:- Pool, large unheated jacuzzi, restaurant, spa, free shuttle service to the medina.
Staff:- Very warm and friendly, could not do enough for you and never once was there any pressure to tip or did they ever ask for a tip.
Restaurant:- lots of variety, moroccan menu was superb. We ate lunch out and dinner at the resort every night and found that the moroccan food at the resort was much better than a lot of the other places we ate at outside. I would also highly recommend the chocolate mousse :)
The resort also tried to find other ways to entertain their guests - free belly dancing lessons, free moroccan cooking classes etc - I guarantee you that the 5 star hotels in Europe and Asia would not offer these free.
To be honest, I found a lot of the complaints of other reviews to be invalid at best and lame at worst. When you think of how much you are paying per night this place is EXCELLENT - clean, comfortable, breakfast included (fresh and a good selection), free shuttle to the Medina and back and free wifi in the bar and pool area.
A word on the taxis - a complaint was made that they could not get on the shuttle and so had to pay for an overpriced taxi. I feel this is unfair. We got on the shuttle each time we wanted but when we needed to get a taxi we paid 150 Dirrhams into the medina and 250 dirrhams to the airport. This is the standard price - this is the price we were asked for when picking up a taxi from the Medina and reception told us that it is a fair price. It is a little on the expensive side but you cannot blame the hotel for that.
I am planning another trip back with my sister and we will stay here again. I recommended Terra to 2 friends and they are booking their holidays here for October.
