We have just come back from a very relaxing stay at the Dar Ayniwen Villa hotel.
Nothing is too much trouble for the kind owner Stephane and his excellent Manager, Aziz and the rest of the very helpful staff at Dar Ayniwen. Prior to our visit my emails were promptly and efficiently answered. My husband was travelling separately from my daughter and I and the hotel had no hesitation in sending the chauffer to collect us separately on the same day. Also during our stay we were provided with a complimentary car and a very amicable driver who took and collected us from wherever we wanted in the city. Aziz will prepare an itenary for you so that you take in all the right monuments. He is very well informed and speaks excellent English and I really enjoyed my chats with him.
Our suite, the Galaxy, was luxuriously furnished with a large and well appointed bathroom. The hotel garden is simply beautiful and Stephane gave us a really informative tour explaning the trees and their origins as well as where the birds in his aviary originate from. I recommend you do this tour. The swimming pool is of a good size and the water was always at the right temperature.
The food at the hotel is of a very high standard. Breakfast was served whenever we wanted and included freshly squeezed orange juice, home made yoghurts, boiled eggs, Moroccan pancakes, croissants, bread, honey, jams, etc. as well as optional choice from the menu. We had dinner on a couple of occasions (would have had more but we also wanted to try out other restaurants in Marrakech) and thoroughly enjoyed these sitting by the pool in the twilight listening to the birds chirping away! In fact, my husband had a personal cooking lesson and mad my fish tagine which was simply divine. By the way, the dinner may appear expensive by Moroccan standards but given the quality and quantity of the food it is worth every penny.
All 3 of us had body massages which we found very relaxing. Definitely worth doing.
Overall a very relaxing experience and because of the excellent car service you can enjoy both the hustle and bustle of the city (without having to haggle with taxi drivers) as well as the tranquillity of the hotel. In our case my daughter and I went off shopping leaving my husband by the pool!
