Whereas I have been using tripadvisor for years, my experience at this Riad has been the reason to write my first ever review. And I am doing it to help other fellow travelers to identify a little gem that might change your perspective about what a Riad is, and Marrakech feels.
Overall, Aguavivia goes beyond the concept of Riad (place to sleep at take a couple of nice photos). The owners (that actually live on the Riad, as opposed to most of the others I have been to), run the Riad not as a business, but as a way of living. They decorated the whole place with exquisite taste (one is an accomplished painter), and use it as a platform to meet new and interesting people. This is the main reason why from the moment they open the door, they are at your entire disposition to either visit the Medina together, share a drink, or chat until very late night in their amazing rooftop.
Bottom line, its an experience more than a place to sleep. I learnt more about Morocco on the Riad rooftop with the owners than in all my travel guides, I made new friends, and for a couple of days, I enjoyed the full authenticity of Marrakech with out falling into yet another "soulless" Riad...
