Riad Viva is both beautiful and authentic, with top notch service particularly from Yussaf and the ladies on the desk. We arrived at about midday following a long overnight flight and on asking if there was any chance of any food post breakfast they said of course and brought us a full spread ( more extensive than the usual breakfast that was wonderful every day....highly recommend the Moroccan mint tea, inspired us to buy our own leaves and tea pot!) and although we expected it they never even charged us for the pleasure. And ok so it might have taken them a little longer than predicted to have our room cleaned and ready but it really didn't matter as we were feed and had the beautiful roof top terrace to luxuriate on, plunge pool and all ( a rarity but absolute winning feature in a Riad). The Riad service was excellent they were happy to provide with whatever you needed or wanted no matter the day or night and because their are only a small number of rooms we often had the whole roof terrace and plunge pool to ourselves which was an absolute dream. It is also very well located down some typically Moroccan twisty-turny back alley's (don't be phased full of children playing and selling sweets and people heading to Mosque), quiet and well away from the crazy hub bub of the square but close enough. Old town is beautiful don't ever bother going to new town but definitely take a trip out the Atlas mountains and the waterfalls but don't forget small pennies, gorgeous Berber tangines in the river and opportunities to buy handmade Argan products. Riad Viva made this all possible! Would definitely stay again!
