"We had a wonderful experience here. The rooms are well kept and the staff go above and beyond. The riad organised several extra activities and trips (the cooking day is a must and the trip to Ourika Valley). Breakfast in the morning was lovely and the view was brilliant with a short walk to the main square."

P. Tegan from London

"The Raid Viva is simply glorious. This Riad has been decorated with love and complete attention to detail and the pool area and upstairs terrace are amazing. This attention to detail is extended in every form, from Aziza and the whole team to all their guests. Nothing is a problem for them as they are willing and able to accommodate"

Helena R from Germany

"My husband and I booked this Riad as part of my 60th birthday celebrations as a stay in a Riad in Marrakech was on my "to do" list in retirement. We were attracted to the Viva because of its beautiful traditional interior and were not disappointed. We were met at the train station and efficiently taken to the Riad. We had pre ordered an evening meal which was taken on the lovely terrace. It was very good and the wine a reasonable price."

Rosita from Wimslow, UK

"Riad Viva was everything that we were looking for in a hotel. The place itself, whilst small, is full of character and charm. The hotel staff are friendly and really can't do enough for you. We went to them regularly for advice on local attractions, resteraunts etc and they were more than happy to help us out."

Anonymous from London

"A delightful oasis, centrally located and tastefully decorated with all the aminities you wish for a trip to this colorful and pittoresque city. very helpful and friendly staff offering excellent cuisine and even massage. the top floor open-air lounge with pool and breathtaking view offers all the relaxation before and after a busy day of sight-seeing"

P Werner from Monaco

"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)"

L Nargis from Maryland, US

"The free hip Marrakech App has proved amazing for our clients. It gives them confidence to navigate the medina knowing they can always find their way back our house, even with NO data roaming switched on. Further it locates many restaurants in Marrakech that our guests like (some of which give discounts to those with the App), and then helps them find their way back to the riad easily. Further, they can also book excursions in or around Marrakech at short notice."

The Owner of Marrakech Riads

Locacted in the tranquil Royal district of the southern Medina neighbouring the Kings El Badi Palace and historically diverse Jewish Mellah quarter. Only 5 minutes walk to the infamous Jemaa El Fna and the iconic Koutoubia Mosque.
