If you spend as much time researching places to stay as I do, look no further. The Riad Aguaviva is your place.
The riad itself is stunning. Fear not the dark underground path to the entrance, for when the front door opens, you find yourself peering into a small paradise: an indoor plunge pool with rose petals, palms, couches, pillows and the sounds of birds. It is nothing short of gorgeous. Rooms above look down to the pool. Above the rooms is a rooftop terrace which is a lovely place to sun, write, think, rest, enjoy.
It's hard to describe how much owners Migel and David, and their staff, go out of their way to make your visit perfect. On arrival, after a traditional mint tea, they take you on a tour of the Medina with a map that highlights key landmarks. By the end of the tour, you are the master of the Medina, capable of navigating your way to the Djemma El Fna (15-20 mins) alone, with confidence. Breakfast on the terrace is marvelous. A new local specialty is served each day. The staff provides a "map a day" do-it-yourself tour to see the key sites in the city. They will tailor this to your taste. Want to try a hammam? They'll reserve it. Interested in a new restaurant? They'll book it. Driving directions? Rental car? Recommendations on your route? They do it all.
I highly recommend this riad for your stay in Marrakesh. It will not disappoint.
