Stayed in Riad Viva for two weeks during the UN Climate Conference in November 2016, which offered the perfect respite from the demands of the lengthy workdays. Meriem, Rahal, and Youssef were truly like family and Riad Viva felt like an extension of home in Marrakech. Adding to that the impeccable design, quiet surroundings, and excellent proximity to both conference... More

The staff at Riad Viva could not be more welcoming or willing to sort out anything that you need. Room was great but do bring something to put on your feet if staying in the winter as the stone floor was cold in November! Hammam and massage were lovely and highly recommended if visiting in the winter as it warms... More

In terms of location, the lovely Riad Viva is perfectly situated and is a mere 20 minutes drive from the airport and a 5 minute walk from the famous Jemaa el-Fnaa Square with its colour markets and Souks. If you wish to venture further afield then the Riad can organise a variety of trips with an English speaking guide. The... More

Riad Viva is a stylish, traditional Riad a walking distance from the Royal Palace, the main square and all the main tourist attractions. This was our first ever trip to Marrakech and what made it for us are key people we met on our arrival. Majid (aka DJ Magic) is a taxi driver who really took his time to explain... More

We had such an amazing time in Marrakech. Riad Viva made it even more special. The hotel and the staff are amazing! We relaxed by the pool each evening and relaxed on the roof top garden most nights.

Very nice and clean riad, excellent location close to everything, yet secluded and quiet (according to Marrakech-standards...), nice food although fruit for breakfast would be nice, for example substituting some of all the sweet stuff - however, the fresh orange juice was very nice. Loved the roof terrace with the small pool and view to the garden and restaurant of... More
