Dar Ayniwen is a beautiful villa outside of the main part of Marrakech. Fortunately, they offer a shuttle that makes it easy to sight see in between relaxing by the pool or in one of their beautiful rooms. The service was fantastic and friendly, and the food was just beautiful. They have an exciting menu, and the tajine we ate... More

My husband and I stayed for a week and didn't want to be in the city centre. From the minute you arrive, met at the airport by the taxi arranged and arrive at the hotel to be handed a refreshing cold drink, the service didn't falter. The hotel is amazing as are the grounds it sits in. Because it only... More

We stayed 4 nights here as a family and wanted somewhere to relax away from the madness. From the moment we arrived we knew we had picked well. The rooms were stunning and we appreciated being upgraded to 2 beautiful suites. The staff and owner were so friendly and helpful nothing was too much trouble at all. The shuttle service... More

We had the pleasure of staying for 3 (hot, hot, hot) nights with Aziz and the team at Dar Ayniwen. Room was palatial, gardens are just incredible, and the pool was gorgeous to lounge around in/by. Surpassed our expectations as we were made to feel like Gods for our time there. Thanks again Aziz.

We had a really enjoyable stay at this hotel. The hotel upgraded us to a different room. The rooms are well kitted out with towels etc. We weren't charged for anything in the minibar for our entire stay which was a plus, although we did end up buying 12 litres of water in the city for 5 nights stay.

A boutique-style hotel with a relaxed atmosphere, a team that was delightful, wonderful food, elegant rooms and stunning gardens. A perfect retreat. It's quiet, tranquil atmosphere suited us as a couple, but I would very... More

The house feels more like a family home, being filled with antique, yet the staff and service are professional and very pleasant. We had a wonderful 3 days here, using the free shuttle service to taste the hustle and bustle of Marrakesh, then scurry back to peace, quiet and beautiful surroundings.

I can't recommend this place enough. We chose this place for our honeymoon and it was perfect and they gave us an upgrade. There is nothing we can fault, amazing service, beautiful surroundings, fantastic food, a sanctuary of birds that the owner 'Stefane' cared for with a passion whom also came and said hello every morning to us.
