Three great nights at Riad Joya, highlighted by the lovely and expansive room, great breakfasts and one dinner prepared by the passionate chef, tremendous hospitality from the friendly manager and team, and an overall warmth that made for a truly first-rate experience. We recommend it highly!

My wife and I stayed in Riad Joya for 3 nights for her Birthday. What a wonderful welcome, from the rose petal heart decorating the bedspread to the special chocolate cake with a candle served at dinner. It is an overused phrase when people say the staff 'cannot do too much for you' but in this case it is true....

I stayed here with my family for two nights. This riad is absolutely beautiful inside with traditional Moroccan decor. The staff was very helpful and friendly. They made us feel right at home. The rooms are big, very clean and very comfortable. It only has a few rooms so it is very private and secluded. The bathroom was great -...

I stayed with my husband and his parents for a few days over the New Year. This riad is a gorgeous little gem in the heart of the medina.

I have spent 4 nights with my parents and our stay was magnificent. I travel a lot for work in luxury hotels and this little gem doesn't have anything less when comes to service, cleaning, attention to details. Food was great - perfect breakfast and very tasty dinner, as simple as authentic! Nordin, our "butler" made our stay even nicer...

Our family spent 4 nights at Riad Joya. After a short walk through the high-walled souk to reach the riad, you arrive inside the quiet calm of Riad Joya's courtyard and realize why this place is deservedly highly rated. We had 2 rooms, both of which were excellent. (We preferred the room that looked into the courtyard, though it was...

Riad Joya is a beautiful, calm oasis in the heart of the Medina. When you enter, the peaceful inner courtyard provides an instant and welcome respite from the excitement of the souks and streets. The entire staff is warm, welcoming, and more than hospitable. The service is truly amazing. Whether you need reservations at a restaurant, help finding a particular...

You enter the Riad through a alley that seems a little off the beaten path but don't worry once you step through the door it is beautiful and very much an oasis. Our room was comfortable and spacious. The shower was grand and the room was immaculate. The host was so helpful and always available and as two women travelers...

We had such an amazing stay at Riad Joya. As first timers visiting Marrakech, we weren't sure of what to do, or how to get around.

Fabulous riad centrally located with amazing service. We were a group of 7 women with lots of requests and demands, that were met with a smile by the always patient staff!! The food was equally amazing and having a 24hr butler who organised absolutely everything for us (including walking us to all locations/restaurants). Would definitely go back.
