Riad Assakina is a wonderful Riad in a great location for many of the sites. The service and room were great. The breakfast was substantial - offering French and Morrocan pastries, orange juice and coffee or tea to start with! You can then select one of a number of dishes including eggs, tomato and potato; fresh fruit or fruit compote and yoghurt; cereals of various types. It is enough to take you right through to the evening! Though if you are hungry, they provide tea or coffee with Morrocan pastries in the afternoon as part of the package. If you give advance notice, you can have dinner at the Riad but we did not take advantage of this.
In the warm weather, there is a lovely roof terrace while in colder weather the living room is cozy and warm.
Grant had organized a taxi from the airport for us making our arrival hassle free and Michele greeted us with mint tea and gave us tips and a map on where to go; she also booked a hammam for us (persuading my husband that he would enjoy it too ... and he did!).
The local staff are wonderful and go out of their way to make you feel 'at home'.
All in all we had a fabulous experience.
