We stayed for 5 nights at Riad Assakina and I am so glad we did. Having the Riad to relax in away from the hustle and bustle of the city really made our holiday. Michele and Grant were wonderful hosts, making us feel like we were at home and provided fantastic advice on what to visit, where to eat, where...

From the outside you wonder what you are heading for but once inside it is great place to be away from the hustle and bustle of Marrakech itself. The welcome is excellent as are all the team looking after you at the Riad. It is very close to a couple of good restaurants and an easy walk to most things...

...why there are hundreds of 5-star reviews for this place. We have found many. The place itself is stunningly decorated, ideally located within walking distance from everywhere but a bit tucked away from the hustle and bustle of mopeds, snake charmers, barbeques and drummers. It is, in fact, an idyllic oasis where to rest and refresh after exploring such a...

When using Tripadvisor to arrange a holiday it is only polite to leave a review for others to make their judgements. Riad Assakina was chosen on the basis of the excellent feedback and for being a place to "chill out" for a few nights from a very busy busines life. I can only echo what others have said about this...

My wife and I have just returned from an 8 night stay at Riad Assakina. After reading all the reviews we had pretty high expectations and we were not disappointed. We stayed in the Almohad Suite which was a large room with sitting area and an ensuite bathroom. The room was beautifully decorated, as was the whole Riad. The service...

As we say we have stayed at Riad Assakina on 9 separate occasions, and only having returned home this morning are already planning our 10th stay with Michele and Grant at Riad Assakina for later this year. We love visiting Marrakech, and never tire of all the hustle and bustle of all the people, but for us, it is Riad...

The Riad Assakina is a gorgeously decorated place from which to explore Marrakech. I am only giving it 4 stars because it wasn't quite perfect, but if four and a half stars were possible, I'd give it them instead. As everyone says, the appearance of this relaxing riad is simply stunning. It is carefully and thoughtfully adorned with local art/craftwork,...

First, may we say thank you to this reviewer for including so many positive comments in her review, which do help put her criticisms in context. In terms of our response: one thing which is worth noting at the outset is that this client arrived very late at night. In these circumstances, instead of giving our usual full briefing as...

we spent a really peaceful but fun 4 days in marrakech. The riad is beautifully presented and the interior design is very well done. The stars of the show are Michelle and Grant who provide as much (or as little) information about shopping, eating, transport etc as you need. I normally do lots of research into my trips but had...
