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 friend Amy and I have been stationed in Germany for the past 3 years, and we wanted to make one last vacation before we return to the US next week. We were originally going to stay in a hotel outside of the medina but we decided to go with the Riad Joya at the last minute, and we were... 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

Everything about the Riad Joya exceeded our expectations. We have stayed at guest houses in the US, the experience at Riad Joya was on another level.

Before arriving at Riad Joya, I read many reviews which described it as an oasis in the madness of the Marrakech medina. This couldn't be more accurate. Based in an excellent location near the souks and jemaa el fna, one must make their way down a narrow alleyway to arrive at the entrance. The arrival just adds to the charm,... More
