The best. The best place and the best people, making the very best experience. It was home for more than a week for me, and everything I needed my wonderful Aguaviva family took care of. It's comfortable, it's personal, it's the heart of the experience of a lifetime in the wonderful, old Medina, the heart of Marrakech.

Such nice staff, such beautiful artwork (painted by David who is a professional artist), nice breakfast. I slept like a baby in the comfortable room, dark, quiet, great mattress. David oriented us beautifully and gave terrific recommendations on what to visit, where to eat, etc. Highly recommend. Great place if you speak spanish BTW. Very good value. Very clean...spotless.

We had the most wonderful stay at the riad. The place is beautiful and the bedrooms are really nicely done up and very comfortable. The staff were fantastic, arranging anything we needed, from transfers to explaining the layout of the medina and pointing out good places to visit and spots to eat, even taking us around the medina so we...

The moment we arrived in Marrakech David was there to meet us at our taxi and guide us to the Riad where we received a very warm welcome. The Riad is absolutely beautiful with traditional Moroccan décor and very comfortably furnished. There is a wonderful terrace area where we had a traditional Moroccan breakfast each morning but it was also... More

Even before I got there I already can sense the warmth of our hosts. They were extremely responsive to any inquiries. The Riad is beautiful and very very tastefully done but it is the warmth of the owners and staff that made it feel like home, They helped us plan our agenda for the day with places to see, things...

From the moment we arrived the staff at riad aguaviva went out of their way to make our stay in Marrakech the most magical experience possible! As our flight was slightly delayed we arrived too late to head out food but a romantic table for two was laid on for us on the gorgeous roof terrace and this personal experience... More

I really can't do the riad justice with a short review but I'll try. This was our first stop in Morocco and was an amazing oasis of calm in a crazy city. Everyone at the riad made us feel so welcome and part of the family, nothing was too much hassle. Hannah helped us to organise our trips and Maria... More

The trouble with choosing a Riad in Marrakech is that you are spoiled for choice so after weeks of searching the web I found the answer in 'Top Ten Riads in Marrakech''. Aguaviva was recommended and fortunately I was able to book a room. We were looking for a Riad that was quiet, had elegant Moroccan ambiance and not exorbitantly... More

My girlfriend and I stayed at the Riad Aguaviva for 5 nights in October and had one of the best accommodation experiences of my life.
