My husband and I visited here in April 2013. On entering Riad Assakina we were warmly greeted and instantly felt relaxed in this oasis of calm and peacefulness. Refreshing mint tea and some lovely dates and nuts were served whilst we booked in. The rooms are all very tastefully decorated with lots of art work, objets d'art and quality furnishings. The rooms are all exceptionally clean and the beds are extremely comfortable. There are a number of other rooms and places to sit around the Riad if you want to relax with a glass of mint tea and a book. The terrace is beautifully furnished with plenty of seats and beds and a plunge pool to cool off. The larger pool is in the courtyard where we took breakfast each morning. Breakfast was a great start to the day with different choices and all home cooked pastries, bread and the moroccan yoghurt and fresh fruit on offer is just lovely. All of the staff are very gentle and gracious where nothing is too much trouble and you are always met with a genuine smile. Lots of recommendations on offer for places to go for dinner if you do want to venture out and taxis can be booked to take you direct and pick you up. Michele & Grant have clearly worked so hard with their team to think of everything to make staying here just perfect. Grant handled the booking process very smoothly and efficiently and Michele gave us some very useful and helpful tips on finding our way around, shopping etc. You get the feeling that you are not just another guest but are made to feel truly welcome like a member of the family. Would definitely come here again...everyone must try this place at least once!
