Writing this on our last day here. This Riad is a gem, well located and within walking distance of most of the attractions. Staff are very friendly, welcoming and nothing is too much trouble for them. We are in the Riad a few evenings and the food was as good as most of the restaurants we visited. Lovely roof top... More

Lovely roof terrace which we used on our third day, just to relax and chill as we had done loads of walking and sight seeing on the other two days. It was soo hot,... More

The city was amazing, I was so excited to be there with some friends. Unfortunatly, there were some things I did not like about Viva. The welcome was not warm enough as we expected, and the bathrooms were not clean enough, the same thing for the towels. the type of advices they gave us at the riad were not that... More

We stayed at Riad Viva early June for 3 nights and wished we could have been there longer! A big thank you to the staff for being so accommodating. We traveled with our 7 years old children who loved it and call it "our home in Marrakesh"!!! Our children are very curious and the staff always took time to answer... More

We have stayed in three different rooms here and all have been lovely. A clean and simple design, but in keeping with Moroccan style. The service has been exceptional! We arrived at 05:45 and someone was here to welcome us. They also provided us with a room until ours was ready and they looked after our luggage whilst we were... More

Great price, great value. Car from airport provided free and we were walked to Riad door as it is reached via some alleyways. The reception we got from Hamsa was really warm. He is a really friendly guy with good English. We were seated and given mint tea while we completed our registration. Rooms are relatively basic but very clean... More

We had two nights here and loved every minute. It is certainly an oasis in the hustle and bustle of the Marrakech streets. The rooms are spacious and beautifully individually decorated. The staff are very friendly and helpful with what to do in the area plus they organised a free transfer from the airport (other Riads charge $20). The roof... More
