We traveled in a couple to Riad Viva and stayed for a week. We arrived at the airport and we had organised a free transfer with the Riad which was very convenient and easy after our flight! You can not drive directly up to the riad so we were met by a friendly man who put our luggage in a...

Dear Guest, I am very grateful for your feedback and I can only apologize for the lack of service you criticized. Unfortunately, our manager Aziza was on holiday at the time of your stay and it seems that our staff has taken the opportunity to relax a bit after the very stressful month of Ramadan. I was hoping that it...

Met at airport, taken to Riad Viva ( we would never have found it otherwise !) and when you wind down the small streets and alleyways you wonder what you will find. Then you walk into another world. It is like walking through into the Tardis. A beautiful, relaxing Riad. Friendly staff greeted us with Morrocan tea and showed us...

We arrived having taken a taxi from Essouira. I called the tel number on our reservation to confirm (I gave her my name and the name of the suite to avoid any confusion) & for the driver to get directions as he hadn't heard of this riad. The receptionist directed him to their other riad - Riad Carina where we...

We stayed in Riad Viva for a week in August 2013 and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The Riad is beautiful and is an oasis of calm amidst the hustle and bustle of Marrakech. All the rooms are decorated to a high standard and are very clean. We felt at home and can't thank Joseph and the team enough for their...

What a wonderful place to stay when in Marrakech. The staff, the rooms, the breakfast, the rooftop pool, the additions one can request (Moroccan cooking course, trip to the Atlas Mountains, Hammam Spa) are all simply fantastic and I would highly recommend taking them up on the additions they offer. I can't praise the staff highly enough; they were all...

Can't praise staff enough, couldn't do enough to help with advice on where to go, eat etc. Rooftop pool a blessing - most of the time only a few people up there so always a sunbed and parasol. If you are travelling independently beware of the maze from where the taxi drops you off to where the hotel is -...

What a fantastic holiday in the most wonderful Riad. An oasis of calm, we absolutely loved it. The staff were helpful and friendly, the Riad is immaculate and the food excellent.

We had a delightful 4 night stay in Riad Viva. The internal courtyard offers a tranquil escape from the bustle of Marrakech. The entire building is very tastefully decorated and starts feeling like a home away from home immediately. We found ourselves looking forward to returning back everyday.
