We have stayed in Riad Viva for 4 nights. We were with 3 persons in total and we have really enjoyed our stay here! The Riad is a truly paradise, which you enter after a walk of 5 minutes (no taxi possible in front of riad) from Rue Sidi Mimoun. Our suite was more than large enough for the 3 of us and well decorated. Since the riad is half-open, the fresh air comes from inside the Riad, as well as the noise. We will recommend the staff to lower the volume of the telephone in the early morning.
We arrived in the evening and we were glad that we could have a small meal in the riad, if you prefer to have a full dinner you have to reserve that before arrival. Breakfast is served at the rooftop, if the weather is ok, and was very complete every morning! Nice coffee, fresh jus d'orange, fruit, pastries, bread and on request an egg, all served by our favorite staff member of the Riad! We have done several excursions, like the trip to the Ourika Valley, cooking course and a visit to the hamman; all well organised by the friendly staff. We have experienced that Marrakech was quite crowded in the weekend, several restaurants and hammans were already fully booked. Marrakech and Riad Viva are an ideal combination of a city trip, relaxed holiday and interesting culture!
