“Riad Jona”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 7, 2012

Great location - minutes away from the Square - it was superb to have the Jacuzz/plunge pool on the roof, such a relief in the heat.. Room was lovely .. Only 3 night break and had our first meal in Marrakech on the roof of the Jona.. Best meal we had .. though to be fair to others it was more expensive and we only had two more nights..there are many to choose from.. Everybody at the Riad Jona are very helpful and friendly. Do contact to arrange taxi transfers as it makes it so much easier, No stress !! - Would be my first choice if we ever go back to Marrakech.. I really recommend the Riad Jona for its location, its staff, its food, its roof top plunge pool and serenity. A real "Oasis in the Medina".
Thank you Julien and everybody

The Riad Jona is fantastic, its as simple as that really. The location is amazing, its easy to find, the staff are friendly, helpful and attentive. I spent a month travelling Morocco and decided to stay here at the end of my trip as a treat and it was indeed that. It is also rare to find a riad where the owner spent so much time with his guests and this was really lovely, as other reviews have mentioned you really are part of the Riad Jona family from the moment you arrive. Unfortunately I was sick when I arrived, but I couldn't honestly think of anywhere I would rather be ill, the staff were amazing and basically cared for me and nursed me back to health, I was only supposed to stay there for a day or so and ended up staying a few more and Julian and the staff were so accommodating. I cannot recommend this Riad enough. And... it has a hot tub, terrace, and covered outside lounge area, what more could you want to escape the hussle and bussle of Marrakech. If you want the proper riad experience... look no further.

Had a five night stay here and wish it had of been longer. This riad is perfect. Run by Julian and his wife, you will feel like part of the Riad Jona family from the moment you arrive. This riad offers traditional rooms with the added benefit of a rooftop pool and terrace - great luxury in the heat of July!

The location is perfect - in the medina close to everything. Slightly difficult to find on arrival but if you get lost just offer someone 20 dhs to take you there. Julian and the staff will give you wonderful advice as to where to go, what to see, what to pay, where to eat etc.

The breakfasts were great and we had one dinner at the riad which was incredible food! We stayed during Ramadan and the staff even shared their meals with us once the sun went down.

I will be recommending this riad to everyone who says they are travelling to Marrakech. Do yourselves a favour and stay here - the overall experience and feel of this riad is unbeatable!!

Great location in the Medina; easy to find and perfect for exploring the Medina as well as for going to Ville Nouvelle. Perfect retreat from the bustling medina and excellent roof top terrace with nice & cool pool to chill yourselves on super hot July days! Riad and room nicely decorated and clean. Staff super friendly and helpful with well-spoken English and Spanish. Breakfast on the sugary side but that probably comes with a holiday to Morocco regardless of accommodation! All in all, I wouldn't hesitate to return to this lovely little guesthouse with friends, family or staying as a couple.

I stayed at the Riad jona with my husband and 2 young children (4yrs and 6yrs). I emailed Julien, the manager, prior to booking and he confirmed that the children would be welcome. Despite this I did have some concerns having read that riads generally were not appropriate for children. I needn't have worried. The staff made us all feel incredibly welcome and made a fuss of the children. We stayed in the Cannelle suite which was beautiful. The riad as a whole is stunning and the staff second to none. We have been fortunate enough to stay in some wonderful places all over the world but the service and attention to detail we found here take some beating. I would thoroughly recommend Riad Jona.

We stayed at Riad Jona for 6 nights and enjoyed every minute. The Riad is clean and friendly with fantastic staff and facilities. The roof top terrace and pool are amazing and set it apart from other riads. After a busy morning in the souk you want nothing more than to cool down on the peaceful terrace. Food and drink in the Riad are also very good and reasonably priced. Staff are very helpful at all times and the location is perfect for access to all of the medina. Do not hesitate to stay at this wonderful place.

Great place, staff very friendly and helpful, excellent English spoken, room (ours) was nicely decorated and comfortable, breakfast on the roof terrace was very yum and fresh and small rooftop pool looked inviting.

Unfortunately the Riad was a little tricky to find initially, but once we knew which side streets to take it wasn't so bad. Good location in the medina close to the souks.

Staff especially Mohammed were super friendly. Staff also looked after my girlfriend who wasn't well whilst we visited, and Julien the host offered for her to have a simple evening meal which was very kind. I recommend the fish pastilla if you eat in the Riad, very tasty.

If we returned to Marrakech we would be sure to stay here again.

Room Tip: We had the rooftop room which was a triple and very comfortable for our needs.
