Dar Ayniwen is a beautiful building in exquisite grounds.
There was clearly no expense spared when the owner, Stephane's, father built it in the 1980's, and none since, in keeping it up-to-date, luxurious and gorgeous. More than that, you are treated like a family friend from the start, one that the family really nurtures.
The staff are all friendly, polite and helpful. Stephane is a genial but never overbearing host. He was generous to a fault in upgrading us - twice.
The hammam treatment was luxurious and, as with everything here, friendly and highly professional.
What else: the cockatoo became a great pal of mine (yay!). The cats ignored us (boo). It was safe harbour from Marrakech's biggest rainstorm in five years, and from the shock of the souk. The free shuttle into town is a fabulous resource. The beds are C-O-S-Y. The pool is lovely. Their eponymous salad is delicious, as is the harira. Bottled water is sold at a fair price. I want to completely redecorate my house Dar Ayniwen style.
And we will be back, for sure - probably with the kids this time.
