“Beautiful Riad with very friendly staff”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 10, 2013

It was always like coming home after a stroll through the crowded and noisy medina when we came back to this beautiful and quiet small Riad. The fantastic balcony on the roof top with a view on a great oriental garden is an excellent place to pass the hottest hours of the day. The interior and the rooms are furnished with great taste and are spotlessly clean. All staff was extraordinarily friendly and helpful, doing their very best to make us feel welcome. Special requests were attended to as a matter of course. Even after check-out, waiting hours to our evening flight were sweetened with a small complimentary meal on the roof top. A very special exerience were a relaxing hammam and massage, followed by a romantic diner on the terrace. It is a pleasure to recommend this special Riad to anyone looking for a quiet, relaxing, beautiful place with a familial atmosphere.

This hotel has an amazing interior, great rooms, and a fantastic balcony. The staff was courteous and very helpful. When the taxi dropped us off, we were pretty scared by the walk down a dimly lit ancient street to the hotel. We were very glad that we continued to the hotel because it was certainly the highlight of our stay in Marrakesh. We definitely recommend this place if you are going to Marrakesh!

The riad Viva is a very nice option to stay in the medina. The staff has treated us very well. They are focused on your happiness all the time. Everything is very clean and every small detail is taken into account. The bad opinions from september are because the manager and some people of the regular staff were on holiday. The food is very good and the dinner with the candles was a lovely experience. We recommend the option of a riad instead of a conventional hotel and Viva will be a great one.

We had a great stay at Riad Viva and would recommend this beautiful and well organized Riad to everyone going for a romantic stay in Marrakesh. Don't skip the massage and hammam experience. Professional and a relaxing experience after a long day strolling in the Marrakesh medina ... followed with a diner on the roof top terrace ... excellent Sheep Tajin with sesame seed sparkled prunes and apricots ... delicious. Great Meknes wine too ...

The staff is indeed very friendly, helpful, the kitchen great, then terrace beautiful. All rooms we saw were nice. e can recommend you the "Lavendel Room" which is spacious and also nicely set. Great bathroom too.

Our friendly regards the team.

Room Tip: The "Lavendel Suite" is great.

Very nice Riad. The staff ist very friendly. There is always someone who cares about you. The terrace is nice and perfect for lazy days, just relax in the sun. They organise your transport to the airport or pick you up from the airport. Very nice breakfast.

We stayed at Riad Viva for 4 days and it was very nice. The Riad is very well located in Marrakech and the free connection with airport is definitively helpful. The Riad is lovely as well as its staff, which was always available for our requests. We enjoyed a typical tasteful dinner which contributed to our satisfaction too. Finally, the possiblity of using the swimming pool was really appreciated after our visits in Marrakech.

To be recommended !

Very Nice riad in walking distance of the most important sites in Marrakech . Clean , Nice staff. Free transfer from the AirPort . The first night we had dinner at the riad , a very tastefull tagine . The list of drinks is rather limited and sometimes they are out of stock . None the less I would recomment the riad to anyone who wants a touch of the real Marrakech.
