Spacious Gem in Great Location!

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful, clean and spacious Riad located just off a main route

into the Medina. Safe neighborhood. Extremely quiet and secure inside

the Riad. Our driver, Mohamed, was gracious, kind and very attentive

(also, of course, a great driver). He will take you to all city sites and

on excursions to the Atlas Mountains for a very fair price. He is

not a guide, but he is knowledgeable. Saida is the Riad

cook and cleaner who comes in the morning to prepare

a full breakfast: eggs, fresh squeezed OJ, various breads,

yogurt and quality coffee. She clears and cleans

up, makes the beds, and then leaves until

the next day. She is adorable and very sweet.

The photos don't convey the spaciousness of

the three levels. Ground floor has a double bedroom and full

bathroom with air conditioning, kitchen, comfortable sitting

room and cooling pool for soaking tired feet after a full

day of exploring. The second level has two master suites,

one is slightly larger than the other but both are spacious and

both have full baths (sink area, shower and toilet). Both

bedrooms also have their own high quality LG air conditioning

units that work well.

The second level has a large corner table and sitting area where we spent

most of our time talking, reading and of course checking

our e-mail (sadly). The internet is very good.

Like all Riads, the "roof" is open and allows in plenty

of light and air, so you don't feel at all shut-in

or claustrophobic.

The third level is the terrace and most impressive.

Again, like the other levels, the spaciousness is

notable. We have stayed in other Riads that purport

to have nice terraces, but are cramped and

uncomfortable. This terrace has two distinct

areas, both covered. One is a large sitting

area which can accommodate probably

8 people and the other area is dining

table with the same space. Between the

two areas and the connecting open

terrace, the rooftop could easily host

a small cocktail party of 30 people,

but of course that would be against house

rules. :) Highly recommend.

Fabulous riad. Just as pictures indicate.

  • 5 of 5

I spent a week here with 2 friends. The riad is conveniently located in the market - about half a block from the entrance (there are "cart guys" to help you get your luggage the half block). The rooms are spacious and the beds are comfortable. Saida is there every morning to fix a great breakfast - but beware of the bread, it it quite addictive. She is friendly and very helpful. Being from Texas we had questioned the effectiveness of the air conditioner, but they were more than up to the task. We had unusually cool weather for late April so didn't use the pool, but it is beautiful. The terrace is where we spent most of our time. There are lounge chairs in the open, a covered seating area and a covered dining area. Just beautiful and very conducive to late afternoon and evening socializing. There is a washing machine which we found very helpful. There was one small issue the day we arrived. I emailed the owners and got a very prompt response and solution. They are very friendly and helpful.

Great riad. I would highly recommend it to others. One suggestion: get the address of the riad before you go. You need that for custom forms entering and exiting the country. I didn't have it (just put Riad Dar Jawd on the form) but had a copy of the VRBO material i had printed off and the custom officials accepted it. But it would have gone easier and quicker if I'd had a physical address to put on the form.

Fabulous riad.

  • 5 of 5

Two friends and I stayed at this lovely riad for a week. The pictures are accurate - it is beautiful and very comfortable. Saida was there every morning to fix us a great Breakfast (the bread is wonderful - deadly to your waistline). The riad is perfectly located on the edge of the market. Ten steps outside your door and you are in the market.

Some of our friends were a bit worried about our safety. I never ONCE felt threatened in the market or on the street. That said, Security is on top of things. They walked us to our door every night.

The riad is A short walk from where you leave the taxi. The terrace is where we spent most every evening. Being from Texas we were a bit concerned about the air conditioning - but it is fabulous. The pool is beautiful but a bit too cool for us in late April - we had uncommonly cool weather for this time of year. But we are not complaining about that at all.

Mohammed took us to the mountains one day and to/from the airport and DHL (we did our part in supporting the local economy).

Valerie and Jacquespierre are a pleasure to work with. We had one small issue. I sent them an email. They responded in 20 minutes and had the problem solved at once.

This is a great choice for a place to stay in Marrakech.

Owner's Response: Cindy, nous resterons ravis d'avoir communiqué si aimablement avec vous avant et pendant votre séjour. Nous regrettons de ne pas vous avoir rencontrées. Saida et Mohamed qui ont eu la chance de pouvoir s'occuper directement de vous garderont un excellent souvenir du plaisir que cela leur a apporté. Merci encore de vos attentions. Merci de l'élégance que vous avez amenée dans notre maison. Elle vous sera toujours ouverte ! Bien à vous Valérie, Jacquespierre

Great Stay

  • 4 of 5

Riad Dar Jawd was just what we needed. The four of us were looking for a week of exploration and relaxation and the location in the Medina was perfect for exploring the hustle and bustle of Marrakech but then close the door of the Riad and it was a haven of peace with its sun terrace and plunge pool in the shady courtyard. Saida made us a lovely breakfast every morning and prepared a tasty tagine dinner for us on the terrace one evening. Mohammed was also very helpful as the driver and took us on a tour to the Atlas at a very reasonable price. If you are looking for cocktails, beer or wine then we recommend Cafe Arabe just around the corner from the Riad. Really good first time in Morocco, thank you.

Un superbe séjour dans ce magnifique riad plus que conforme aux photos. Saïda prépare de très bons petits déjeuners variés et Mohamed est très réactif pour vous trouver des activités ! Je recommande ce riad sans hésitations !

Aufenthalt in Marakech

  • 5 of 5

Unsere Aufenthalt war wunderschön. Wir werden auf alle Fälle nochmal dort Urlaub verbringen.

Alles ist prima gelaufen. Service in der Villa sowie Sicherheit und vor allem die Freundlichkeit der Menschen

In der Medina sind Gründe genug die Villa weiter zu empfehlen.

Dar Jawd is located in the prestigious district of Dar el Bacha just steps from the palace of Thami El Glaoui, the old pasha of Marrakech. The entrance of the derb, after the passage in front of the guards of the palace, is located on one side between the shops of antique shops and jewelers, on the other side it is the old foundounks (caravanserais) which sheltered formerly the nomads coming from to trade in Marrakech. These magnificent buildings still mark the entrance of the souks today towards Mouassine street which leads to Djema el Fna square. In the immediate vicinity of the derb are luxurious hotels in the medina such as Khum Palace, Donab Palace as well as health institutes such as the "Hamam of the Rose". Nearby, you will also find famous restaurants like Dar Moha, Dar Marjana, Spice Terrace, Arab Cafe, Garden, Donab Palace, Khum Palace, Farm ... Many museums, monuments and tourist attractions are within walking distance. The modern city with its districts of Guéliz and Hivernage are also easily reached on foot.
