I visited this hotel for a weekend (saturday to monday) with my sister (aged 21 and 23) and we loved it. Upon arrival the external looks extremely inviting and when you enter it gets even better. I can honestly say the pictures do not lie. We received complementary Moroccan mint tea on arrival which introduces you to the Moroccan feel. Neither of us speak French (just the basics that you learn in secondary school) but the majority of the staff are multilingual which is extremely helpful. The meals are set as a buffet which offers a huge selection for all three meals of the day which would cater for all, though the dessert selection wasn't quite to our taste. There are quite a few facilities available as well as live entertainment for the whole family. My sister struggled to connect to the wifi, we're not sure if its just her phone or the signal is weak because I always managed to stay connected. The only real negatives I would say is it is a little far out from the part of the city where you can find bars and shops but I would say that's the more 'British' side so for a real Moroccan experience using the free shuttle around that side of the city is definitely more than satisfying. In Morocco they use plug sockets with two holes, so try to bring one with you. Also, people are allowed to smoke in the bar where the entertainment takes place so if you hate smoke that may be an issue. Overall, we were both extremely happy with our trip. A great value for money!
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at The Terre. There were a couple of minor glitches, but these were dealt with efficiently and generously by the hotel's management, which seems intent on improving what's perceived as wrong and truly offering a good experience to guests. The room was comfortable and roomy, the hotel's food was decent, the pools are clean and inviting, and the gardens/grounds are beautiful and immaculately kept. we had an issue with transfers and shuttles to town, but these were addressed by the hotel and, whilst I've rated the "convenience" of the hotel's location and the surrounding neighbourhood as only middle rankings, we much, much preferred to be out of the true hustle and bustle of Marrakech, which would have tired and irritated us quickly. The location is superb for peace, quiet, and relaxation with good service.
A perfect romantic Riad, for couples, in the heart of the Medina souks, surprisingly quiet and safe. Ideal for a two-three day stay at marrakech. the staff is superb, breakfast is an indulgence, natural and abundant. Rooms are sensuous.
Riad Lorsya is situated near the Jamaa El Fna square,in the heart of the antiques market souk.It has been renovated with care …More
We are three British ladies on a long weekend in Marrakech. We were met at the airport by a helpful friendly driver and the hotel mini bus. We received a lovely welcome at the reception from Sharieff who spoke very good English and Fatima who explained the all inclusive part of our deal. We were offered cool wet towels and a drink and then shown to our Family Suite. Our suite was very spacious with lots of wardrobe space, televisions, well stocked refrigerator, safe, a tea and coffee making facility, overlooked the gardens and we could see the road. We would have preferred a pool view but decided the room was very nice and we were not going to be in it very much. We used the three restaurants, and all of them were excellent with very good service.
The pool area and gardens were very well set out with plenty of sun beds, towels and umbrellas.
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this hotel.
We decided to have "a get away from it all" Christmas this year.
We had been to Marrakech before at Christmas 2004 and stayed in a large hotel close to the city centre.
This time we chose the Riad Dar Ilham about 7 miles outside the city, what a wise choice.
We had a relaxing, peaceful break far from the hustle & bustle of the Medina.
The Riad was staffed with wonderful helpful people who made everything perfect.
Everyone associated with this Riad deserves praise.
We shall definitely return.
Stunning hotel..peacful...lovely food but £70each for dinner is expensive.
Taxi into town £25 one way...so we spent a huge amount on taxi..
Staff lovely but work crazy hours.. which was not good when they drive you around only having a few hours sleep each day and no days off.
Our bathroom smelt terrible for the whole nine days..problem was not fixed..
