My Boyfriend and I stayed in this stunning little Riad hidden away from the hustle and bustle of Marrakech. Everything about it was equisite from the sumptious bedrooms, the tranquil terrace, the breakfasts, the small bijoux pool on the ground floor with petals floating on the water..a truly magical stay made by the attentive, friendly and knowledgable staff. This is... More

We had a beautiful 4 day stay at the Riad Aguaviva. What really made our stay perfect was the attention from the staff and led by Khalid. They made sure we were comfortable AND experiencing Marrakech from their perspective. A few examples: -We booked a mid-tier room but since the best room in the riad was available, they upgraded us...

Absolutely stunning little Riad hidden in the industrial zone of the Old Medina. All the staff are really friendly and were super helpful providing guests with a picture map book to help you get about and happy to recommend local restaurants and sights to visit. The rooms and general decor are superb and the roof terrace makes the ideal place... More

Firstly, apologies - this review is so overdue, completely forgot and remembered when talking to a friend and recommending you to them. This was a very special anniversary celebration holiday for a group of 7 crazy ladies. A first visit to Marrakech for the majority of us and made all the more special being in such a stunning riad.

If I travel in citiies I would like to have a good 'place of departure' for my activities. The room should be comfortable, the day should begin with a good breakfast and I like tips - what to do and see - from residents. In this case I would give 9 from 10 for the room and 11 from 10... More

The riad was fantastic! We ordered the private shuttle offered by the riad and arrived at the hotel around 12.00 PM. Our room (Sultana) was big, beautifully decorated (impressive interior design) and super comfortable. The owners of the riad made us feel at home from the moment we stepped into the riad; we were treated like being part of a... More

The riad Aguaviva was our first home in morocco. A driver collected us from the airport late at night and delivered us to this beautiful tranquil oasis in the medina.
