We had an absolutely lovely time staying at Riad Jonan: an oasis of calm and splendour in the heart of the kasbah. Upon arrival we were warmly welcomed with sweet, refreshing mint tea, petit fours and hot towels - a very nice touch after a long flight. Our room and indeed the decor all over the Riad, from the sun kissed rooftop to the mosaic plunge pool, was a beautiful example of the marriage between Arabic and French style. Hassan and his team could not be more accommodating; the perfect hosts. It is the little touches that make this Riad special; such as asking for a glass of wine and a friendly staff member offering to carry it to the rooftop for you to enjoy it there.The food on offer is a joy - tagines piled high with meltingly tender meat, breakfasts of strong arabica coffee, fresh orange juice and a choice of eggs, fruit, granola etc. complimented with breads/pastries with jam, marmalade and honey. Hassan drew us a very helpful map after our first leisurely breakfast and was happy to answer any questions and give advice in perfect English (although it was also fun when we did attempt some basic French/Arabic!). Any extras such as taxi transfers or day trips were expertly arranged with reputable companies on our behalf and nothing was too much trouble. Even when I had a little sun stroke on the last day we were able to keep the room until our flight rather than check out at 11 which was very welcome.
I could go on in praise, but my advise to anyone considering visiting Marrakech would be to stay at Riad Jonan. It is a truly authentic taste of this beautiful city that you would miss staying in a tourist complex on the outskirts. You will certainly be glad you did.
