My wife and I stayed at Riad Assakina at the beginning of May for a 4 night stay. We were warmly welcomed by Grant and Michelle on our arrival and were immediately put into the Marrakech frame of mind with mint tea and walnuts/date parcels. Grants introduction to Marrakech provided a great foundation for the rest of our stay and I found the customised map an absolute godsend for finding our way round the hectic city streets.
We were fortunate to be upgraded to one of the suites on the first floor as we were the only guests for our first 2 nights. The room was beautifully decorated (Michelle's design flair) and had all the required touches of a 5 star hotel, including fresh flowers, fruit and evening turn-down chocolates.
Grant and Michelle have managed to get the balance between being extremely helpful (great day and evening restaurant recommendations/booking, taxi booking both airport and evenings) without interfering, to a tee. They are ably assisted by their day and night staff who are attentive and friendly, they are a credit to Grant and Michelle, reflecting their efforts in making the guest's stay perfect.
Breakfasts are a fabulous start to the day with fresh orange juice, a great selection and all served with a varied choice of breads. My favourite was the banana pancakes with lovely honey followed by lovely cup of 'builder's tea'.
After a busy day around the hectic streets it was so nice to come back to the calm and tranquility of the Riad. Our favourite routine was to hit the roof terrace in the early evening to top- up the tan and cool down in the pool followed by a chilled bottle of Gris wine whilst watching the sun go down.
Would we go back....most definitely yes and I hope to return with friends in the future.
