I found this Riad on TA and after staying there I do not understand why Riad Assakina is not #1, as I just can not imagine there being a better place in Marrakech to stay!! Felt welcome prior to arriving in Marrakech (via email communication) with Grant, who assisted in finalizing a few travel details and was courteous in answering all of my questions. When you walk into this Riad there's an instant feeling of comfort, calm and relaxation. When you meet MIchelle & Grant (owners) and their wonderful staff you feel like you're "staying with family and dear friends" ! Everything about this Riad is beautiful and all of the furnishings are luxurious and carefully selected by Michelle. Every inch of the Riad, including the suites, terrace and sitting areas have been designed with impeccable detail. Having the expertise of Michelle, Grant and their staff was invaluable as this was my frirst trip to Marrakech and navigating my way around (without them) would have been challenging. The breakfast, afternoon pastries and tapas were yummy! Their "turn down" service at bed time along with treats on the pillow was really nice. There was free Wi-Fi through out the Riad, including on the terraces.
You will absolutley fall in LOVE with this Raid, it's amazing owners and their staff. Shopping with Michelle on my last day there was SO much fun!! She knows all the nice places to go & the best prices when purchasing souvenirs.
Leaving was sad, as it was like leaving family and life long friends. I would HIGHLY recommend this Riad and can NOT wait to return! Thanks Grant and Michelle for making my vacation the best one YET!!!
