Marrakech is amazing and slightly over whelming, so to discover the perfect retreat was a joy. Walking through the the Medina and down the tiny alley that led to the Riad Joya, gave no hint of what we were to find behind the door in the old wall. It truley was a Narnia moment. The beauty of the place is cleverly based on light and texture and pattern and is a million miles from the world outside its doors. But what makes it magical is the people. Khalid and his team are without doubt the nicest group of people that I have meet in any hotel in which I have stayed throughout many years of very happy travelling. Mahdi's food is delicious and clever and has a wow factor in its presentation. Service does not come any better than that provided by the smiling Fannam and the beautiful Oulaya. But our holiday was made special by getting to know Nouredine. He cared for us, guided us and enchanted us; the title 'Butler' comes nowhere near recognising his talents, he should be representing Morocco diplomatically! The personal service that we experienced was exceptional and executed with charm, courtesy and discretion. Marrakech alone will call us back but Riad Joya is what really won our hearts.
