We stayed at Riad Jona in Marrakech. We highly recommend this Riad. Kasbah Itran near MGouna was in a magnificent location and a fun place to stay.
... large brown eyes. As kids, some of us were embarrassed for her when we stumbled across bare breasted tribal women hidden deep inside the glossy pages of National Geographic. Others slightly resented her with millions of starving children. We sat alone at the dinner table, chastised, long after the plates had cleared, chewing on fatty chunks of meat floating in cold irish stew. We have been in Africa for two ...
... to the city. It's still full summer along Clifton Beach. Skinny boys play cricket on the sand. Teenagers in black wetsuits ride the curling wave. Anchored offshore is a small flotilla of pleasure craft packed with bronzed young people. The party is in full swing. We hear its rhythm. We order espresso and fresh fruit tarts at a quaint French bakery in the De Waterkant, Cape Town's garishly painted up gay quarter. We hang out with Nancy, a modern day ...
... head back to our riad and dinner is ready on the roof top patio. Besides the typical Moroccan salad; small dishes of Sugar Beets, Olives, Eggplant and Tomatoes, we get a delicious beef or lamb tagine. We were never really sure which it was but it was yummy! By the time dinner is finished, it’s around 10pm and we’re beat. Off to sleep so we can hit the ground running , or in my case hobbling.
... streets. It was tucked away down a narrow little lane and we happened to be the only guests at the time. He had the rooftop bedroom with our own private terrace; it was a lovely room if it wasn’t for the nearby mosque which was waking us up every morning at 4:30am with the noisy “call to prayers” sound.
After a while we eventually got used to the mosques’ sound! One of the great things about Fes was the fact that the only traffic aloud ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Riad Jonan Marrakech
My husband and I stayed with the Riad Jonan over the Easter period. Though we arrived at 11 PM, we were welcomed by both Martyn & Howard and offered refreshments to start our stay. Chit chat and discussions about interests then started and we were offered a guided tour of central Marrakech by Martyn the following morning. I expected the tour to be a short walk to key area's and we would be on our way, however Martyn stayed with us for most of the day providing insightful and historical information about Marrakech. I especially enjoyed the tour of a spice shop that provided us with the opportunity to learn about different spices used in Morrocan cooking.
Having just returned from a short break at the Riad Jonan, I cannot recommend it highly enough. It is a haven of tranquillity and Martyn and Howard are the perfect hosts, providing hospitality and information on local attractions in a friendly and helpful way at all times. I will certainly return to recharge my batteries and enjoy the calm and peaceful atmosphere of Riad Jonan.
Thanks for a great time
We have just returned from a fantastic break in Marrakech staying at The Riad Jonan. Martin and Howard have created a beautiful, chilled out house with fabulous rooms and lots of areas to relax and get away from the madness of the Medina.
They were incredibly helpful with advice on what's good (and what's not) about Marrakech and nothing was too much trouble for them. We instantly felt at home (though this gorgeous house is nothing like my home sadly) and enjoyed their recomendations of restaurants and spas which were great.
This is a lovely place to stay and I would recommend it enormously.
We have just had a wonderful stay at Riad Jonan in Marrakech. A small and homely setting run by Martyn & Howard who were excellent hosts - not overly intrusive but always around to give guidance and advice and to have a laugh with. The riad is extremely tastefully decorated Morrocan style and the fact that there are only 5 rooms makes it very personable. We had a superior room for the first 3 nights, and loved the offer of a laptop with DVD one night so we could watch a movie in bed! Also minibar and stereo which made us feel more at home. We enjoyed returning to this lovely haven after a hectic day out in the souks, and always found our hosts interested in what we had been up to, and then suggesting a good place for us to eat for the night, which was always very well recommended. Breakfast very good and just right. It's quite rare to stay in a place where you don't feel like you have to return to your room the minute you get back, but can easily sit and chat, have a beer or tea in the open courtyard, and also feel that your hosts are enjoying themselves too. Overall a thoroughly enjoyable stay and we felt rested and allowed to unwind from the moment we arrived. So much so that we returned a few days later from the coast to spend our last night there! Fully recommended and would love to return.
A friend and I have recently returned from a fabulous 3-night stay in Riad Jonan. Before booking, I checked the reviews on TripAdvisor and perhaps uniquely couldn't find a bad word about it. All I can say now is that the reviews are to be believed.
I have just returned from a weekend in Marrakech with 6 of my girlfriends. We stayed at the Riad Jonan on the Rue de la Kasbah and I have to say it was the most perfect weekend ever!
Staying at the Riad Jonan felt as if the owners, Howard and Martin, had been introduced to us by mutual friends. That's the only way to describe the hospitality on offer - it feels like staying with friends, rather than a soul-less commercial experience. The recommendations they gave on where to eat and what to do were 100% right - they are obviously great judges of character. Thanks to them, our stay there was wonderful despite unseasonable weather.
The previous reviews pretty much sum up the Riad Jonan. A few things to note:
1) You're best to get a taxi there from the airport. We would really have struggled to find the riad on our own as it's down a back alley way.
2) We visited in winter and found the room quite cold at night, and no heater. However, the bed had lots of blankets.
Hosts were very helpful and booked a nice Moroccan restaurant just down the road for us which came to £60 with wine. Huge & tasty servings!
Breakfast was great and the location is within walking distance of the medina and other main sites.
I took a short break at the Riad Jonan in Marrakech to de-stress and can't praise it enough. This part of town was perfect, plenty of old town charm, walking distance of everything but not swamped with tourists. The Riad was really lovely. Food was great, really comfy rooms and plenty of atmosphere. The open central courtyard with the fountain was just a great place to unwind. Owners were really nice too. Happy to help but also happy to leave you alone. Great for the independent traveller.
We so appreciated the warm hospitality of Riad Jonan. Our hosts Martyn and Howard could not have done more to help us enjoy an amazing visit to Marrakech. They recommended and booked great restaurants, guided us to a beautiful spa and on our first morning Martyn took us on a tour of the old city which was a great initiation to a very different culture. At the end of each action packed day we could return to the comfort and atmospheric ambience of a beauifully restored Moroccan villa - Riad Jonan.
