I don't consider this place a Riad, it is far more a nice hotel with beautiful rooms. The locations is far from convenient, as you need to cross several busy street to walk to the main square; the route is not very attractive or pleasant, with heavy traffic. The high marks given on various review sides are given for the... More

We had a wonderful stay in Riad Viva. We stayed in the Rose Suite. Very spacious indeed and decorated Moroccan style with romantic lights. Despite the other comment, we found the service very personal and everything was possible. Specially Mariam who welcomed us in most of the time that we returned from our sightseeing trips. She would always ask if... More
