Taken as a whole package, undoubtedly the best hotel I have every stayed in. We recently spent a long weekend in Marrakech and Riad Joya was the highlight. The riad is very beautifully designed. The attention to detail is very impressive. Our room, the Zanzibar, was very generously proportioned. I particularly enjoyed the oversized shower with the water falling from... More

Our family of three stayed for 5 nights at the Joya at the beginning of October. We were met by Noureddine and immediately felt welcomed. We were served warm tea and delicious sweets to begin our relaxation process at the Joya. Our room, the Naos, was beautifully decorated as is the entire riad. The room is spacious, we were 3...

All the five star reviews for the Riad Joya are no mistake. We stayed for five nights and I'm certain there is not a better riad in Marrakech. A riad is unlike staying in a full service hotel, but Nordin and the entire Riad Joya staff made the stay exceptional. Marrakech can be extremely overwhelming for a first time visitor... More

I would sum up Riad Joya as a little "little gem." It was perfect from beginning to end. We marveled every time that we went from the souks into the riad. It was like transporting into another dimension. We couldn't believe the serenity found in the midst of the bustle and chaos of the medina. The physical amenities were superlative... More

I wanted to take my wife someplace exotic for a romantic getaway, and chose Riad Joya in Marrakech after a lot of study. Great choice. We both loved it. The Riad was quite luxurious, incredibly comfortable, romantic, very private and quiet. It was amazing how tranquil it was, being in the middle of the vibrant Marrakech medina, on the edge... More

The Riad Joya was an oasis in a bustling city. It had the warmth of a home with all the luxuries of boutique hotel. The attention to detail was stunning, every aspect exceeded our expectations. Nordin and the staff were incredibly attentive but not overbearing. They would magically would appear with mint tea and dates when we craved it most.... More

From the minute I was met at the airport I felt very welcome in Marrakech. We were driven to the medina where we were met by our chaperone from the Riad Joya.
