“Wonderful place to chill!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 24, 2013

We spent 4 days at this lovely villa just outside Marrakech city. So much better than staying in town at a raid, as we had lovely gardens, birds and a lovely pool to relax by. The staff were very helpful and accommodating. The owner Stephane met us on arrival, very charming.

Town was only 5 to 10 mins in their people carrier, which is offered free to guests, brilliant.

Dar Ayniwen is a little bit of paradise!

We have just returned from a magical 7 day stay at Dar Ayniwen with our 3 children (9,7 and 3). The house and grounds were absolutely stunning, the staff incredibly welcoming, the food outstanding and the assistance provided by Stephane and Aziz went above and beyond. I really cannot recommend enough.

Stayed here in November last year. It was wonderful.

Staff were very friendly, food was superb and so was the accommodation. We were with another couple and they upgraded our room so that we had the two rooms and lounge on the first floor.

Aziz the manager was extremely helpful and nothing was too much trouble. Stephane the owner was very friendly and always made the effort to come and chat with his guests.

It was cold in the evenings in November so when we had dinner it was served in the house in front of a wonderful log fire, felt just like having your own country house.

Would recommend this small but extremely well run hotel to anyone looking for tranquility in Marakesh

My wife and I chose dar ayniwen as our wedding venue after visiting 17 different venues in Marrakech over 4 days, and we could not have been happier with our decision! We spent a weekend with our family and closest friends there and were pampered and catered to the entire stay. The house and garden are amazing and pictures simply do not do it justice. For anyone looking for a luxury weekend in a beautiful and green surrounding - look no further!

For anyone looking to organize any event, in our case it was our wedding, the service and attention that Stephane and Aziz and the rest of the staff provided were second to none! We have to admit it was daunting to organize the biggest day of our lives from abroad, but Stephane and staff did a good job at convincing us everything would be okay and most importantly, delivered a perfect celebration for our guests and my wife and I when the day finally arrived. We could not recommend it enough, they are truly experienced and professional when it comes to weddings.. They are also flexible, allowing you to customize the celebration to fit your needs. There is just nothing negative to say about the venue or the service! The preparation, the lighting, decoration, sound system, entertainment, dance floor, tables, dj, table service, bar, night snacks, the rooms, the list goes on.. Everything as we had dreamt of. And the FOOD! Delicious!

We want to thank Stephane and Aziz and the staff for making our big day perfect and can't wait to come back! We highly recommend it for any occasion, wedding or just a weekend!

This was the first hotel of a ten day trip to Morocco and what a great find it was! We were upgraded from the house to a private Villa which really made the beginning of our special holiday fantastic.
The villa had it's own private hot tub which on request they would prepare with candles for you in the evening, we spent every evening in there drinking wine, what a luxury!
The gardens are lovingly cared for by what seems like an army of staff, and the background music is supplied by the hundreds of birds that the owner collects. A very peaceful and relaxing break from the madness of the souks in the city!
All of the staff were fantastic and made you feel just at home, Aziz could not do enough to help with directions and reccomendations galore. The taxi service to and from the city was great, we never had to worry about getting back to our hotel in a mad taxi as they would come and collect us.
The dinners in the tent in the evening were just gorgeous, you chose what you wanted in the morning and subject to availability they would make wonderful dishes for you, we ate here 2 evenings out of the 3 we stayed here and were stuffed both times.
Breakfast in the morning out in the beautiful gardens by the pool made you feel like you were in a film, just fantastic.
Cannot fault any part of our stay here, and as previous reviewers have mentioned reluctantly leave this review for purely selfish reasons as I too don't want it to become overun. I would go back in an instant!

Room Tip: I can't imagine that any of the rooms are bad in this fantastic hotel.

After a stressful fall, I needed, simply put, a vacation. A two hour flight from Paris, Marrakech seemed like the natural destination close to home to relax, while experiencing the sights, sounds, and cuisine of Morocco. Lucky for me, Dar Ayniwen Villa Hotel was the paradise I was looking for.

This family run hotel provides the perfect combination of comfort, elegance, and peace that I needed. Its attentive staff, and its charming gregarious owner Stephane, truly know how to make their guests feel ‘at home’ in the elegance and comfort. I would recommend this jewel to anyone seeking beauty and relaxation on an intimate scale. The rose petals sprinkled around my room upon arrival were enough to make me feel like the princess of this paradise – and that was just the beginning.

everything about it was wonderful. we were upgraded to the galaxy suite, which was lovely as it was our honeymoon. we had no less than 3 balconies, with lovely views of the grounds. the food was wonderful as were the staff. we were met on our arrival by the owner who showed us round, and Aziz was wonderful at arranging our trips into the city. I would come to this hotel again simply to stay there for a few days peace and quiet and not even leave the grounds.
