The Riad is beautiful, warm, well finished and everything is studied in details. What made the big difference was the AMAZING staff who has definitely "a plus" versus other riads/hotels. We could not ask for more... they took care of everything making our stay so relaxed and comfortable. On the first day Maria helped us to get oriented in the... More

I'm not exactly sure how to express how much we loved this riad. It's truly one of our favorite places we have ever stayed. Ever. First, the people. David and Manel, Maria and Hanna treated us like old friends from the moment we walked in the door. They went above and beyond what we expected to ensure that we had... More

Simply put, the level of service and overall ambiance at Riad Aguaviva was amazing. The staff were so incredibly friendly and welcoming; the co-owner, David, is an artist and created hand-crafted maps for us with suggested itineraries for each day of our visit (including great off-the-beaten track suggestions), AND made us a fabulous portrait based on a photo he took...

The Riad Aguaviva was immaculately presented. The staff were incredibly helpful. Nothing proved too much trouble. The breakfasts were magnificent served on a lovely terrace (which was slightly cold in December). The owners made suggestions for our visit to Marrakech, most of which we took up gladly. We were even presented with hand drawn maps which proved very useful in... More

My friends and I researched for the best riad in Marrakech and booked Aguaviva purely based on the reviews here (oh and the beautiful pictures of the riad). 500 people cant be wrong ;) We went in with so many expectations and I must say each and every one of them were not only met, but surpassed. I cant praise... More

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
