From the moment we arrived we felt like we had the undivided care and attention of everyone at the Riad. The staff, Jana, Silvia and Simo are fantastic, and it made all the difference. With a fantastic restaurant recommendation and reservation every night and advice on where to go and what not to miss they made our holiday absolutely amazing.... More

My husband and I stayed here last October and we can't say enough about how friendly and helpful everyone was! From helping us plan our day and find our way through the medina, to making restaurant reservations and going with us to the pharmacy for desperately needed medicine, they treated us like family. We even got an excellent restaurant recommendation... More

My fiance and I started off our honeymoon at Riad Aguaviva. From the start, David and his staff (Jana, Silvia and Simo) were super nice, friendly, and helpful. The first night we arrived was actually my birthday, which I mentioned in passing to Jana. Unbeknownst to me, she told the restaurant where we had dinner that night that it was... More

Don't hesitate to make a reservation at this stunning Riad. Great location away from the tourists, but within walking distance to markets and sights, tasteful accommodations with all the amenities of an upscale boutique hotel, including an excellent breakfast on the rooftop terrace. However, the best treat was the owner, David, his staff and friend, Albert. They went beyond the... More

The five stars are spot on, the Aguaviva is an outstanding Riad. And as others have pointed out, it is the staff (Jana, Sylvia, Simon) who make it great--Muchas gracias---and so much better than a hotel. My wife and I joined our daughter for a Moroccan adventure and Marrakech was the southern point. The nice thing about the location is... More

My parents and I stayed at Riad Aguaviva for four nights at the end of our round-the-country dash. Riad Aguaviva was hands down the nicest place we stayed, both for the people and for the rooms and riad themselves. Jana, Sylvia and Simon were our exceedingly gracious hosts, and we had the Riad to ourselves. It was delightful. Over breakfast... More

Loved the entrance...after going under a building and through a tunnel, down narrow alleys, you will open this mysterious door to an absolutely stunning Riad! And most importantly the people are truly amazing!!! It started with an incredibly warm welcome from Manel and Oti! David's insider's views actually changed our entire trip for the better! He quickly understood who we... More

What has made it really the best hotel I've ever been to is not the wonderful place itself (which is amazing), but specially the team there. They welcomed us and showed the city as if they were our own family. They helped us see the best places in the city addapting themselves to our few time by showing them to... More

We were a little apprehensive about how we would get on in Marrakech but our fears were soon allayed when we met David, Manel, Oti and Simo. Their care, thoughtfulness and knowledge of the city helped us to do the things we wanted to, many of which we would have really struggled to guide ourselves to without David’s excellent maps....

We arrived on an evening flight for our 3 day stay and we were greeted so warmly at the Riad. We had arranged an authentic Moroccan meal on our arrival and from the very start our experience at the Riad Aguaviva became personal and bespoke .... within moments we were experiencing traditional Marrakech and were invited to go to the...
