“Weekend Escape”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 24, 2014

There really is nothing to fault here! We had an amazing three days and exactly what we expected and more! From the moment we arrived to be greeted by Stephane and the team, they can't do enough for you. The food and service was excellent, spacious comfortable rooms surrounded by quaint rustic and authentic surroundings. The shuttle services to and from town was really appreciated and ran on a regular basis. Would definitely go back in the future. A huge thanks to the team at Ayniwen for a wonderful few days! Superb !!!

Fantastic hotel. The service was faultless throughout our stay. In particular the hotel had a shuttle service into the old town&new town on an hourly basis and even agreed a pick up time to bring us back! We spent no money on taxis at all,it was like a private chauffer. The staff were very attentive, and the manager was a great help in booking resturants/day trips/giving advise. The hotel was quite&intimate when we visited,the food was excellent and had lots of facilities to spend time there.

Room Tip: We had a seperate suite in the garden which had a hot tub and was directly next to the pool but very...

Superb, charming, very quiet accommodation in what was a private residence - 8 suites in main house and adjoining cottages, with very good housekeeping and attentive, unobtrusive service. Food of very good quality, extensive well-kept gardens, free shuttle service on demand to/from downtown Marrakech, fine breakfasts by the pool or in suite. Hotelier Stefan, splendidly supported by Aziz, welcome residents as houseguests.

Room Tip: we stayed in the Mucha Suite in the main house on the second floor with 2 private terraces overlooki...

We spent four wonderful nights in this amazing hotel and enjoyed everything about it .The food the service ,the suites and the peaceful ambiance are perfect .
Stephane and Aziz and all the staff made us extremely welcome .
We loved the gardens with exotic birds and plants and the swimming pool was very inviting .
The car and driver was ready whenever we wanted to go to the Medina or dinner but we loved eating in the hotel grounds and the wonderful surroundings of this paradise .
We would like to go back again next year .

Room Tip: The Galaxy suite was perfect for February because The sun rises in time for breakfast on the balcony...

Room Tip: No poor rooms although Mucha has a private bathroom across a landing.

Staying at Dar Ayniwen is rather less like staying at a hotel, and more like staying with friends (albeit friends with luxurious guest rooms and a full complement of staff). The decor is very un-corporate - antiques are incorporated into the guest rooms in a very personal style, which only adds to the charm of the place. The aviary provided us with the highly amusing sight of the four guinea fowl parading around the grounds, looking for insects and seeds in the lawn - the birds were certainly much more interested in eating than they were at ogling the guests. In all, a most delightful stay at a most charming property.

Perfect location to escape and relax. Stephane, Aziz and the team made us feel extremely welcome. Every detail has been thought of and nothing is too much trouble.
The Mucha suite we stayed in has a nice feel, a great view of the gardens and a private terrace. The breakfasts were very relaxing, served by the pool. Homemade yoghurt, different styles of pancake each day, eggs, toast, fruit and fresh orange juice.
Lunch and dinner is prepared to order, every dish was extremely tasty. Favourites being the pigeon pastilla and lamb tagine but we enjoyed every meal. Portions are generous!
The spa treatments are excellent; the hammam scrub is invigorating and the facial and massages were the best we'd experienced in a long time.
The friendly drivers collected us from the airport and will drop you in the souks or new town if you want a day of hustle bustle.
The gardens are amazing and tranquil, with a wonderful collection of colourful birds, fish and tortoises. No need to visit the majorelle gardens when you're staying here.
The atmosphere created here is unique - it was a pleasure to spend a week here, we will return.
