We cannot recommend the Riad Viva enough for a stay in Marrakech. We were collected promptly from the airport and taken straight to the Riad, which has a stunning interior with a beautiful fountain. On arrival we were served proper Moroccan mint tea and biscuits, and were made to feel very welcome by Rashid. Our room and bathroom were both... More

After struggling to find the place, we arrived to this riad and even though we had a pre paid reservation, they gave our room to another guest and wanted to send us to another place, without giving any satisfactory explanation. The staff was not helpful with this situation. I don´t recommend this place at all.

Riad V, Inhaber at Riad Viva, responded to this review

Unfortunately, these guests arrived with an invalid reservation. We demonstrated the fault to the couple but they wouldn’t understand and accept their mistake. Even the reservation was not prepaid as they wrote, as everybody knows there exists no prepayment at HRS. We couldn’t help them because the Riad was fully booked and there was no room available. Finally we found... More

This was my 2nd time in Marrakech and travelling as a group of 4 women for a mix of sun & culture which comes in abundance in Marrakech! Riad viva appealed as it has a rooftop splash pool, the pictures and it's location. We were not disappointed by this beautiful Riad! It's a short walk down 1 of the many... More

We had just spent 3 days trekking in the montains when we arrived here, so it was like a total palace when we arrived! We were greeted by one of the staff who made us feel very welcome, serving us mint tea on the sofas, whilst we were to also complete our passport details etc for the riad. Our arrival... More

Absolutely loved this Riad. All the staff were really friendly and helpful, the rooms were really comfortable (and the bed was massive!) and the terrace was such a peaceful area to spend an afternoon after a morning in the main square! We had an early flight so arrived before the check-in time, but the staff were more than accommodating. We... More

All the staff where so helpful and friendly! We always felt like we were the only one there even if the place was full!!! The food was great(I'm Moroccan, so I dont get easily impressed) just make sure you ask for what you want ahead of time since they don't keep a large inventory( therefore the food is fresh).

My wife and I spend two nights at Riad Viva, which we selected largely based upon Internet reviews. We've been to Morocco many times, but had never stayed at a small, traditional-style hotel in Marrakech. We were not disappointed. The place was immaculate, the rooms were appointed with all modern comforts (A/C, satellite TV); the decor is very tasteful throughout.... More

Stayed at the Riad Viva for 4 nights at the beginning of July and had a great time. The staff are friendly, helpful and very welcoming. The rooms are beautiful, the food tasty and the pool on the roof terrace is just what you need when it gets too hot! If I ever go to Marrakech again I would stay... More
