“Visit while it's still a hidden gem!”
Reviewed 4 January 2012

My husband and I spent 5 nights at Riad Joya over the holidays and could not have been more pleased with the accommodations and service. It is located conveniently inside the Medina down a windy path. When you enter the riad you feel as though you are entering a peaceful, luxurious oasis. We have never encountered better service in all our travels. From arranging dinner reservations and then walking us to and from the restaurants to booking us an appointment at a nearby Hammam to sightseeing suggestions you truly feel like the staff is there to cater to your every need. The restaurant is lovely and convenient if you do not feel like venturing out into the Medina. Mint tea on their rooftop is a wonderful way to wind down the day. This place will not stay secret much longer!

My boyfriend and I stayed here for three nights in October 2011 - and had the loveliest time. The staff could not have been more helpful, to the point of walking us to and from the local hammam or restaurant in case we got lost! The food was fantastic, and we were even offered a choice of rooms as it was so quiet. The four poster beds were lovely and comfortable and the little touches - like fresh fruit in the rooms and beatiful hand-carved silver soap holders in the bathrooms - made it feel like a really authentic experience. Definitely would recommend.

Room Tip: All the rooms are gorgeous!

Just got back from a 3 night stay in Riad Joya. I spent ages searching the internet, trying to find the right place. Riad Joya was definitely the perfect choice, the staff are lovely and very helpful. The room was great, very quiet and clean. I came with a friend and was slightly apprehensive thinking that the riad would be too romantic for us but it definitely wasn't, we had a girly weekend and the riad was just perfect! Would recommend to anyone looking for some where special to stay in the Medina.

Room Tip: We looked around all the rooms and they were all great

Just back from a long weekend in the Riad Joya. From the polite emails when booking to the warm goodbye as you leave the service is fantastic. The location in the heart of the old city is perfect and once inside the Riad you leave the hussle & bussle of the city behind. Can't fault it and would recommend to anyone. Enjoy.

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.

Room Tip: Every one different, every one gorgeous.
