Riad Assakina
Ranked #5 of 502 Hotels in Marrakech
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed May 20, 2010

Riad Assakina is like stepping into an oasis in the middle of the city, away from the hustle and dust of the streets, immediately into a beautiful calming environment.

The owners Michele and Grant welcome you as if welcoming you into their home, and nothing is too much trouble. The decor and furnishings are outstanding as Michele has given a lot of love and thought into every detail, also making sure every guest has everything to make their stay as comfortable as possible.

What makes this Riad special is the staff and the owner, they could not do enough for us. Michele the owner, walked us through the Souk the first day and helped us acclimate to this new envirnoment. She also guided us throughout our 3 night stay, giving us recommendations, making reservations and answering some of our silly questions. She made us feel very welcome in her beautiful Riad. Hicham and Noelle were also very helpful, sweet and accommodating. Our first trip to North Africa will be one to remember!

This Riad is absolutely perfect with brilliant hosts (Michelle and Grant) and a great team of staff. Michelle's attention to detail is evident in every aspect with stunning bedrooms, a roof top terrace with sun loungers and a view over Marrakech. We booked the Riad for 5 days, but ended up staying two weeks because of the disruption to flights caused by the volcanic ash and we couldn't have wished to be in a better place. Marrakech is an amazing place and we would thoroughly recommend staying at this Riad.

This is now the fourth time we have stayed with Grant and Michele at this outstanding Riad. Both Grant, Michele and all their staff do their utmost to make every guest feel extremely welcome and insure a relaxed atmosphere throughout the stay.

Each room has been thoughtfully individually designed by Michele but we think 'our room' the Kiad is the best of all!

The choice of breakfast covers every taste with the addition of lunch or evening meal if required, prepared by Meriem in traditional Moroccan style.

Needless to say this IS the Number 1 Riad and we have confirmed to return again in November.

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 have expected. Their staff were a delight and so pleasant and happy - who wouldn't be working for Michelle & Grant. Our room was as good as the internet pictures portrayed (we have been fooled by the internet in the past). The breakfasts were excellent and the evening meal we had at the Riad was great. Service fantastic and the help and advice we received from our hosts helped, in no small way, to make our 6 night stay in Marrakech a joy. When we next go back to Marrakech, the Riad Assakina will be our first point of contact. Don't be put off by the review from LPhipper - he/she must have been in a different Riad and got the names mixed up!

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 or more of the spa treatments and do book dinner in the Riad the food is delicious. We can not reccomend the Assakina more highly and Marrakech is a very special place, go have a great time like we did.

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.
