Hats off to Michelle and Grant. The Assakina is top rate. In a country where the service culture is so awful, it is amazing that they have managed to get such a great culture in the Riad. The staff, (Grant and Michelle included) couldn't do enough for you. Marrakech is a pretty hectic city and these guys managed to take the hassle out of our stay there.
The rooms have a couple of foibles (i agree with the reviewer that says that lamps are too big for the side tables and they could do with labelling the shower gel), but they are more than offset by the gorgeous decoration and thoughtful touches.
Not the cheapest place in the World, but would highly recommend.
