A little apprehension ran through me when our taxi driver pulled up at the Riad's location - but I needn't have worried. On entering the Riad we were more than delighted (an understatement!). It was beautiful. Lovingly restored with attention to detail. Our hosts, Michelle & Grant, were just lovely people who did much more for us than I would... More

We have travelled a lot but this was my first visit to the African Continent, what a wonderful place my husband chose for a surprise Birthday treat. The Riad is beautiful the owners and staff so kind and helpful, we visted lots of places we would have missed without thier suggestions. If you stay and you must, do have one... More

Spent three nights at the Riad and we had the most amazing time. Grant and Michelle are the reason this place works - they are brilliant hosts. They arranged our trip and also ensured that we had reservations for dinner at night. Sipping wine on the terrace was a personal highlight. Combination of a stunning Riad and amazing hosts =...

Riad Assakina is absolutely beautiful, but what makes this place really special is the service. As soon as you arrive, you are made to feel part of the family. Grant gives you a wee orientation tour of the local area, which puts you at ease with Marrakech from the start and Michelle gives you her top tips of places to... More

Having read all the reviews before our break, we wondered if it was all too good to be true...having just returned from three nights at Riad Assakina we agree with everything that's been said! The riad is amazing and a real haven in a bustling city, we loved stepping back into the tranquility to relax and unwind. Both Grant and... More

How can we possibly improve on all the favourable comments that have already been posted about the most fabulous place we have ever stayed in. Michele and Grant are the most perfect hosts in this "real oasis" (I know it's a very overused phrase, but it really is) in this crazy city. We arrived here after 21 hours, having been... More

We had a really lovely time and have been full of it since our return. The riad was just beautiful. There couldn't be a better place to come back to at the end of a day of exploring. So much thought had gone into every aspect. The design and decor is elegant and impressive with imaginative colour schemes and local... More

I recently spent five nights at the Riad Assakina in the Kaid suite. The whole experience of both the Riad and Marrakech was wonderful. Entering the Riad Assakina off a quite unprepossessing alleyway was like entering a different world, the contrast was amazing. We were welcomed by Michelle, the owner, for whom nothing was too much trouble and who daily... More

We recently spent four nights here and can only agree with all the previous reviews - which just goes to show how good this establishment is as it is always difficult to match high expectations. Michele and her team went way beyond the call of duty to make our stay, in what can be a challenging destination, perfect. Her recommendations... More

Read glowing reviews on Tripadvisor but was not disappointed. A real oasis of calm. Wonderful service. Michele could not have done more to make it a perfect stay. Look no further
