'Wow'...that was what I said when we walked into the Riad and saw the beautiful pool and courtyard, incense was burning and fairy lights added to the ambience of a tranquil relaxing place to stay. We were greeted like old friends and were showed to our beautiful room on the ground floor. After we'd dumped our bags and freshened up... More

We had a wonderful stay here and the team took us on an orientation walk soon after our arrival. We were then able to confidently get back from anywhere in the Medina to the Riad without getting lost! The room was fabulous and the breakfasts set us up for the day! David is an enthusiastic and very informative source of... More

Never ever experienced such perfect hospitality as in this cosy riad. The place and the people make you just feel at home. Jana, Manel and Maria are wonderful. They showed us the real Marrakech. The example of their hospitality was shown as we came home late from a long drive through the Atlas-mountains. We were offered pizza's just in case... More

It would be wrong not to say that the initial appearance is concerning. You just clear the roof as you walk through the tunnel and turn right. At the end you are greeted by people who treat you like close friends. The rooms are beautiful. The attention to detail is a tribute to the owners. David is a wonderful artist... More

We were a group of three couples who stayed at Aguaviva for three nights. The riad and rooms are stunning. The staff are so helpful and friendly and us very welcome. Special praise to Jana who drew up an itinerary on places to visit and eat each day. Will definitely be returning. Thank-you so much for everything Manel, Simo, David,... More

We have just returned from Marrakech after a wonderful 4 days at Riad Aguaviva. I have been there 2 times before and I decided that this should be the place where I bring the whole family for my 50 years birthday. For my birthday the staff made the best dinner we had in Marrakech which was served in the tent... More

It was like staying with family. The care and attention from Manel, Maria and Hanna was incredible...not forgetting Simo. Every morning they gave us a detailed itinerary if we wanted it and even came with us the first morning to set us on the right route. They gave us lots of useful tips for when we were out and about... More

This Riad was amazing! Located in the "real" Marrakesh Medina (little north from the main square), it gives you all you need for a perfect stay + lots of additional stuff I cannot even elencate! It was fantastic. Maria and Manel provided us with a full program every morning on what to visit, where to shop, where to have lunch... More

This is one of the best places I have ever been hosted. Manel and David did take care of my family with an extremely charm and friedly attitude. They helped us on the first hours in marrakesh in a suttle but very effective way! A super place to stay!!

I knew as soon as we had to go through a small tunnel that Riad Aguavia was going to be a hidden gem and I was correct. As soon as we entered we were greeted with warmth, beauty and all my senses were on fire. Incense was burning, candles lights and the ambiance instantly made me feel at home but... More
