Riad Jawhar is a beautiful Moroccan town house built around a patio with a pool and a large roof terrace. It is located in the Medina (old city) of Marrakech in a calm area, 15 minutes walk away from the famous Jemaa El Fna square.
Our group of 6 stayed at Riad Jawhar to celebrate my 50th Birthday. Myself and partner and two daughters with their partners. We had the most wonderful time. The Riad was kept immaculate and Khamisa was so kind and courteous, preparing some of our breakfasts and a lovely meal on our first evening.
The Riad was so authentic and right in amongst the locals it really gave us a taste of the non tourist side of Marrakech.
We loved the pool and rooftop terrace, the ability to stay cool in the air conditioned bedrooms and sitting in the stunning courtyard at night having a drink, playing cards, listening to our music on the speaker system, with a starlit dip in the pool. Daytimes the walks around the Northern medina seeing the locals at work and admiring their skilled trades, quad biking one day and a spa treatment and amazing massage another day, a meal in a beautiful restaurant with Mohito's on the rooftop beforehand, and eating listening to a local playing traditional morrocan music. Plus the experience of the main square, the craziness of the colours, smells, snake charmers and music. One tip is to be very assertive when haggling prices or refusing to be taken into a shop to be shown their wares, they can be very persuasive to get you to buy something. All this said what really made our holiday was the wonderful Rachid. From the time of our arrival he was the perfect guide, advisor, and really good company. We always felt safe and in good hands and nothing was to much trouble for Rachid to sort out or organise. On our last night he saw us off to the Riad in taxis he'd organised after we had visited a bar. We had had to leave prematurely as one of our party felt unwell. We said our thanks and goodbyes. An hour later Rachid arrived unexpectedly at the Riad as he wanted to check she was ok and if we needed any help. The whole experience was amazing and all the arranging through Air b&b and Christel went very smoothly. Highly recommended.
Our group of 7 had an absolutely fantastic stay in Christel ' s riad! The pool was ideal for cooling off in the heat and the terrace at the top was great for the evenings. Didn't meet Christel but Ali, the guide who showed us around was very welcoming and helpful. Will definitely be coming back here
The riad was amazing maybe too much space for two people but it was very relaxing and quiet. The location was perfect with easy access to taxis and small shops. Our host was very helpful when we arrived, offering a scooter ride from parking and even gave us a lift when we dropped off our rental car. The pool was amazing and the bedrooms were perfect...the kitchen was also beautiful...all in all it was the perfect retreat in Marrakesh...I highly reccomend staying here if you find yourself in Marrakesh!
Christel's Riad was a fantastic experience. It provides a wonderful and calm environment to relax in at the end of a long day walking around Marrakechs busy streets.
Rachid who manages the riad and Khamisa who cleans and cooks at the riad are both amazing, super helpful and Khamisa cooking is to die for.
Thank you for an amazing stay we will be back!
We are so happy with our stay at this beautiful riad. It is even more stunning in person than the photos and we felt so taken care of and instantly at home. The rooms are stunning and it is very private and we felt very safe. This is our first time in Morocco and what a perfect experience!!! We highly recommend having dinner at the riad as it was by far the best food we had in Morocco. The pool is perfectly cold and a great escape from the hot sun. Rachid was so helpful in accommodating our every whim and need and we so appreciated him bearing with our broken French. Thank you Christel for being a lovely host and for promptly returning our emails when we had any questions. We are so happy with our stay, and so pleased we choose to stay in a private riad instead of some touristy hotel. Marrakesh is an amazing city and Morocco a magistic country. The Moroccan people have such a kind and warm heart and we felt very welcomed by them and are so fortunate to have had this experience. If considering a trip to Morocco please do not hesitate, it is a magical place, full of wonder and beauty. And this riad is a small piece of paradise and a huge part of our perfect holiday. Thank you!!!!!
We are a family of four with two children ages 9 & 11. We stayed in Christel's Riad for six days and had a wonderful experience. It's in a great location for visiting most of the major sites by foot. You can get to the main square within about 15 minutes of walking through the souks. It's a lot of fun and if you eat in the square at night you must visit food stall number 32 which has amazing food, excellent service and is loved by locals and tourists alike. The Riad pool was a refreshing welcome after a hot day of walking around. I would highly recommend her Riad.
Lovely Riad in the Medina. Supportive and friendly in organising excursions or even cooking lessons in-house. It is good to rent the Riad as a whole with friends you know as sounds in the neighbour room can be well unterstood.
Thanks Christel for all your support.
