Dar Ayniwen Villa Hotel doesn't feel like a hotel, more like being a welcome guest at a private home. Great service and delicious food. Our kids (3 and 1) loved the birds, the pool and the amazing breakfast with Moroccan pancakes. The free transport is an amazing convenience. Highly recommended!

our family of 4, including kids 11 and 9, had an amazing 5 day stay at this incredible hotel. While Marrakech can be loud and chaotic, Dar Ayniwen was a peaceful oasis to relax and be treated like royalty. Breakfast next to the pool with delicious pastries, breads and a variety of other selections was great (the kids loved the hot chocolate). Stephane (owner) and Aziz (manager) were incredible hosts and took care of all arrangements, from airport transfers to shuttle rides into the Medina. At night, dinners in the tent were fantastic and our suite (Rotunde) was quiet (other than night animal sounds in the distance) and relaxing. Would love to return someday.

Five days of being spoilt! So many superlatives apply to our stay at Dar Ayniwen in late March - magnificent grounds, a beautiful house with great staff and food. Many thanks to manager Aziz, all the staff and owner Stephane, who all looked after us so well.
The website impresses, the real thing is better. Shukran.

As soon as we arrived we were shown around beautiful gardens by the owner and given an upgrade to a splendid pavilion room. In all aspects this experience exceeded expectations. We had lovely breakfasts each morning and nothing was ever too much for the attentive staff including an impromptu cookery lesson for my wife. Our three year old son had a wonderful time exploring the garden, splashing in the pool, tasting new food (children's meals are complimentary) and playing with the friendly birds and tortoises. A wonderful place to both relax in tranquility and enjoy the excitement of Marakesh via the hotel's convenient shuttle service.

After a long flight we arrived in the dark at Dar Ayniwen. We were welcomed by Stephane the owner and heard that we were getting an upgrade. The complete first floor of this beautiful house was to be my family's private residence for the next 3 days. The following morning we could truly appreciate the beauty of the house and the surrounding gardens.
Dar Ayniwen is located in Palmeraie, just outside the city center, there is a shuttle bus available to take you into town
Staying at Dar Ayniwen is the best of both worlds; on the one hand you feel like you're a guest in a country house with its own unique personal atmosphere and on the other hand you feel like being in a super luxury hotel with the best staff to take care of your needs.

We (my wife and myself) had a wonderful time at Dar Ayniwen. The service was impeccable. The staff always had a smile on their face and you could feel they were proud of what they were doing. Aziz from the concierge made sure our every need was satisfied. The property itself is beautiful, with an exquisite Moroccan house immersed in sumptuous gardens and the furniture opulent and grand. The food was also fantastic and the chef always eager to listen to any request. In short I would recommend this to any friend and we'll have to make sure we come back

After a long drive back from the west coast (Oulidia) we arrived at Dar A at 12.30.Ordered lunch which was served on the terrace overlooking lovely pool.
The lunch was superb and just what was required.
The property is authentically Marrakech. The garden is beautiful andf as the owner, Stefan, is an ornithologist there are some amazing specimens in various avariarys dotted around.
Staff were very attentive and on the ball.
Our room was a little dark, and possibly in need of a modest overhaul, but v comfortable bed and clean.
We had a v good breakfast and would happily stay again

Dear Euan,

Thank you very much for taking the time to write a comment on Tripadvisor.
I am glad we have managed to offer you a relaxing break, despite its shortness.

Regarding your suite, indeed, even if it is the first time the guests mention it as dark and in need of an overhaul, this one is planned for this month of July. And not only in that suite but in all Dar Ayniwen. I will not go into details as this is also going to be a surprise for our returning and future guests.

Be sure that I consider all comments very seriously, and Dar Ayniwen will not be as it is without the great feedback from our guests. So thank you for again for these information.

We look forward to get a chance to welcome you again.
Stephane
