When we were looking for hotels, riad joya stood out because of the very neutral and simplistic decor and when we contacted them, Sophie was incredibly helpful in getting the arrnagements done. Still, we were not fully prepared for the experience. The rooms are great (we stayed in the Ottoman suite) the colors are a muted cream with a hint... More

You would be hard pressed to find a Riad with a location as fabulous as Riad Joya. The Medina is a maze like I've never seen and it is rare to find accommodation in the Medina that is centrally located and therefore easy to walk to hot spots. Riad Joya is in the heart of Medina and just a few... More

We stayed at Riad Joya for 4 days mid-February (my wife and I in one room and our teenage son in an adjoining room). We were picked up from the airport and whisked through the Souks of Marrakech to an oasis of calm. The people there could not have been kinder or more helpful. Our meal there on our first... More

My title may be repetitive, but it truly summarizes Riad Joya. There is no better home base than the Riad Joya after fighting through the hustle and bustle of the Medina. The service is impeccable. From the pickup at the airport to the personal chaperones to the restaurants in the evenings, the attention to guests is remarkable. Nor and Staff... More

Simply charming visit to a hidden oasis within the city. The staff defines Moroccan hospitality and instantly makes you feel at home and at ease. The location cannot be beat, it is centrally located for daily souk shopping or exploration of the city. The hidden alley way leading to the riad extinguishes the hustle of the busy streets. Perfect vacation,... More
