We loved this Riad, and would not hesitate to recommend. From the moment we walked through the door the staff were friendly and welcoming - even offering us a mint tea on arrival. The riad is incredibly tidy and clean and has a lovely calm and quiet atmosphere. Rooftop terrace is a great oasis - looking out over the gardens.... More

Our stay in Riad Viva was a great start of our holiday in Morocco. We felt so welcome and the team did everything to make the stay an incredible experience. As we decided to stay longer we slept in the two rooms on the ground floor, and they were clean, big and the beds very comfortable. Would definitely recommend this... More

The hotel was very clean and welcoming. Our room was well furnished and the shower was good. The staff were very hospitable and friendly and went out of their way to help us (even ran down to the local shops to buy us some peanuts one evening!). The breakfast was plentiful and served in the small dining room. Unfortunately we... More

A lovely riad with welcoming and helpful staff. I would recommend Riad Viva for a stay in Marrakech. A really peaceful retreat from the busy streets. We had mostly sunny days with the room terrace providing a very pleasant outside area to sit and use the sun loungers when we returned from site seeing.

Stayed one night before travelling to essaouira. Free transfer from airport and greeted by Hamza at the end of the lane. Fab atmosphere and the wine flowed! Make sure you go up to the rooftop terrace.

The staff were great and the central courtyard and roof terrace were very pleasant, relaxing areas. The location is great, don't be put off by the alleyway or the youngsters, they are all friendly and the... More

Perfectly charming riad in a clean and safe location walking distance from all major sights. Riad viva is on the outskirts of the medina providing a relaxed and quite place from the business of central medina. The staff was extremely attentive and made us welcome even before we arrived. The restaurant is very pleasant and the food is gorgeous. Freshly... More

This riad is a lovely base from which to discover the delights of Marrakech and we had no qualms about walking back there late at night. The location is very convenient for sightseeing and the staff were extremely helpful and pleasant. We also greatly appreciated the airport pickup that the Riad Viva provided.

We spent a lovely 4 days here for my 50th birthday. The staff were very helpful and friendly. Our room was one of the smaller downstairs rooms but it was still plenty big enough,clean and comfortable. We did the cooking day which was fun and the meal we produced was very tasty. I had the hamman and massage. The massage... More
