Located within a short walking distance of the areas of interest and only a short taxi ride to others. Michelle and Grant were perfect hosts;... More

Riad Assakina truly means inner peace...we had the most amazing experience of our lives thanks to the beautiful oasis that Michele and Grant have created in Marrakech. From the moment we entered this peaceful magical mini-palace, we knew we had made the right choice. The land, the people, the food of Morocco were OFF THE CHARTS! Shuk-ran (thank you) for... More
