This was by far the best small hotel I have ever stayed at. Words can't do this hotel justice as the service was incredible. The people were so nice, so helpful and the services they provide were great. We arrived at the airport and had the hotel pick us up (highly recommend as it is not an easy place to... More

My family and I recently spent one night at this beautiful riad in the medina. We were originally booked for two nights but due to a missed flight connection were only able to stay for one. I have nothing negative to write about Riad Joya. From the lovely courtyard to the beautifully appointed suites (we stayed in the Ambregris and... More

We stayed here last November and thrilled with the hotel. The riad is very nicely renovated and beautifully decorated. The service was wonderful from the whole staff. Nordin was so helpful in arranging a guide for the city, several day trips and other activities we were interested in. He even escorted us to the square to make sure everything went... More

This could be one of the nicest places I've ever stayed. The service was unbeatable; they drove us to the airport to collect our lost luggage. Every time we arrived in the room, they would knock on our door moments later with fresh fruit and cold water. Being one of seven guests adds to the personal experience. The hotel was... More

this is post-luxury! minimalistic yet etnic, that's Riad Joya, a small gem in the middle of the Marrakech's crazy medina. Joya's only 7 rooms give you the very impression on having a small palace in the middle of 1001 nights only for you. All the rooms are great, but my preferreds are the Touareg and the Ambergris (where we stayed).... More

Very well designed riad with a mix of traditional and Italian design. The service is amazing, really feels more like a 5 star hotel. The general manager makes you feel like you are the only guests, come to pick you at the airport, have you welcome with tea a patisseries. He does anticipate very well without overdoing it. Best value... More

We arrived at Riad Joya after a long journey from Australia. The Riad arranged transportation for us from Casablanca airport. It was somewhat startling getting to the Riad from the road - through the narrow alleyways and past the various smallholders - but that is part of Marrakech. The staff were incredibly helpful and recommended numerous restaurants and other places... More

We spent four nights at this beautifully appointed Riad. There are seven rooms and the location of the Riad is somewhat troubling. It is in an alley about l/3 of a mile from transportation. So you are dropped off far from the hotel and someone comes and puts your luggage in a wheelbarrel but since you're in this dark back... More
