When using Tripadvisor to arrange a holiday it is only polite to leave a review for others to make their judgements. Riad Assakina was chosen on the basis of the excellent feedback and for being a place to "chill out" for a few nights from a very busy busines life. I can only echo what others have said about this...

My wife and I have just returned from an 8 night stay at Riad Assakina. After reading all the reviews we had pretty high expectations and we were not disappointed. We stayed in the Almohad Suite which was a large room with sitting area and an ensuite bathroom. The room was beautifully decorated, as was the whole Riad. The service...

As we say we have stayed at Riad Assakina on 9 separate occasions, and only having returned home this morning are already planning our 10th stay with Michele and Grant at Riad Assakina for later this year.

The Riad Assakina is a gorgeously decorated place from which to explore Marrakech. I am only giving it 4 stars because it wasn't quite perfect, but if four and a half stars were possible, I'd give it them instead. As everyone says, the appearance of this relaxing riad is simply stunning. It is carefully and thoughtfully adorned with local art/craftwork,...

Rock_Critic, Owner at Riad Assakina, responded to this review

First, may we say thank you to this reviewer for including so many positive comments in her review, which do help put her criticisms in context. In terms of our response: one thing which is worth noting at the outset is that this client arrived very late at night. In these circumstances, instead of giving our usual full briefing as...

we spent a really peaceful but fun 4 days in marrakech. The riad is beautifully presented and the interior design is very well done. The stars of the show are Michelle and Grant who provide as much (or as little) information about shopping, eating, transport etc as you need. I normally do lots of research into my trips but had...
