“A wonderful pre-wedding stay”
Reviewed September 20, 2013

We stayed at this beautiful house the few days before our wedding at La Mamounia and it was the perfect calm before the storm!! We had various meetings to attend over Marrakech before the wedding day and I can't even tell you how much of a God send the shuttle service was, the lovely driver (Hassan) was probably sick of the sight of us by the end of our stay!! Nothing is too much trouble at Dar A and you are made to feel very special. Aziz even arrange my pre-wedding beauty treatments for me! My husband and I both had a full body massage at the house and we both said it was one of the best we have ever had. We were kindly given an upgraded room also which made our stay that bit sweeter. We can't wait to return! Thank you!

Myself and the wife (Just turned 40) stayed for 3 nights at this wonderful hotel. On arrival we had a complimentary upgrade to the Rotunda Pavilion suite.
The suite is tucked away in the corner of the beautifully maintained grounds.
The service is excellent and the staff very welcoming and friendly.
Location is good for visiting Marrakesh and we were very impressed with the shuttle service to and from the city.

We had a very relaxing time and would highly recommend

I wanted somewhere where it was sunny and would allow for a total switch off, Dar Ayniwen provided both. Although I know they are not responsible for the weather ,I spent four days switching off in the sun. I was upgraded to the Galaxie Suite, which was wonderful. The staff are there when you want them and when you don't they seem to vanish but appear is if by magic when you do. The opportunity to be taken into Marrakech and brought back by the in-house taxi is a real bonus; you can experience the madness and joy of the city and then escape to tranquility. The hamman and body scrub was so good I had to have two visits.I would class Dar Ayniwen as one of the best places I have stayed in for peace, reflection and a recharge. As for the food... Amazing! As a single traveller it was wonderful not to get stuck in the back of beyond and hidden away in a cupboard.

Room Tip: All the rooms are unique and that is the joy of the place. The Mucha bathroom is across the corridor...

It has been 5 months since we stayed at Dar Ayniwen back in April. We have been so impressed and enjoyed our stay so much we just had to tell everyone about it.
We stay in Marrakesh for 1 week, first 3 days in a Riad in a Medina and the remaining time at Dar Ayniwen. Aziz - hotel's manager contacted us and arrange for the driver to pick us up from the Riad in suitable for us time. We have been collected at Medina and Ayniwen driver took us to Palmeraie, about 25 minutes drive. At the end of the dusty trail, surrounded by brick walls palms lay a set of double gates. We were not prepared for the delights that waited inside. As soon as the gates were open we were welcome by Stephane - owner of the villa and ever charming and helpful Aziz.
Aziz took us for a tour around the house describing the wonderful history of the house and its contents. Villa is beautiful with an amazing display of family art collection.
We have stayed in a Mucha suite with a magical terrace and most amazing view to the garden.
Warm welcome and beautiful surroundings left us for once speechless.
During our stay we were treated as a royalty, nothing is too much problem in Dar Ayniwen. You can have your breakfast whenever you want wherever you would like. Chef will check with you if you have special wishes with regards to dinner - to make sure they buy fresh food on their trip to market. If you would like to eat out, hotel will reserve a restaurant and driver will take you there and bring you back with no additional cost.
Gardens are magical and the ambience fantastic.
Without writing a thousand words on how incredible our stay was, I strongly advise you to book yourself a treat and stay in Dar Ayniwen you will not regret it.

I traveled to Marrakech with my 10yr old daughter to attend a fabulous, destination wedding of a dear friend.
We enjoyed the pool and the spa. The room (Galaxy Suite) was marvelous and fabulously comfortable with quietly cool air conditioning
Overall, the Dar Ayniwen was an idyllic and relaxing experience- a true oasis.
The staff was super nice and helpful, and day trips to the Medina,Essouria and the Atlas Mountains were seamlessly arranged.
The daily shuttles and airport transport included with one's stay is a MAJOR plus!!!
if you are looking for a peaceful, recharging getaway, this is the place.

We went during the hottest part of the year, and in Ramadan. The beautifully landscaped and manicured grounds provide ample shade by the pool to while away the hours when it is just too hot to do anything else. Air-conditioned rooms (the Colonnade suite) were also very welcome when needing to cool down more quickly. The suite was nicely furnished with a mixture of traditional and more eclectic pieces.

Fortunately it was only too hot for 2 days, so we were able to go into Marrakesh on the other days. It was great to be able to go to town for a couple of hours, come back and rest up a while, go back in, come back, and then go in for an evening meal, all free of charge.

Food was always of a high quality, but expensive in comparison to good-quality restaurants in town.

Being there in Ramadan was not an issue: a little consideration on our part as to going into town 15 minutes earlier or later so the staff could break fast was something anyone can easily accommodate.

On-site steam room and masseuse provided some personal pampering - only used the one at the hotel so not sure how this compares to the many other places offering these services.

We highly recommend this hotel for couples, for its location and surroundings, highly-attentive staff, degree of luxury, and its calm and relaxing atmosphere.

Room Tip: All rooms/suites are fabulous, so it makes little difference.

For a romantic break, cant be beaten. Difficult to fully explain the atmosphere of this retreat. Very calm, very peaceful. The service is excellent. This is the place for a rest. If you are intent on the sites, and a full blown Marrakech experience, then you are better in the Medina. As a retreat from the modern world it cant be beaten.
