Me and my girlfriend stayed here for 4 nights. I can honestly say this is one of our favourite hotels we have stayed in.
the grounds are absolutely beautiful, the pool was perfect and we loved walking around the bird "zoo" (which is much more of a bird sanctuary!!)
the staff cannot do enough to make you feel at home, and you REALLY do, which is very rare in a hotel.
They have a flexible shuttle service that takes you and collects you from the medina until 11.30pm !
Being able to come back from the chaos of the medina to this garden of Eden (10-15 mins) makes staying in Marrakech relaxing... not an easy feat !

We really cannot wait to return to this place !!!

Thanks for having us.

We travelled as a family of 4, and had a wonderful holiday in Dar Ayniwen. We were looking forward to a relaxing oasis away from the bustle of the souk and were not disappointed. Before arrival nothing was too much trouble and Aziz made sure everything was ready for us. Our room was beautiful with lovely coloured windows and very spacious. Air conditioning worked very well - much much bettter than hotel chains. That was good as temperature was 43'C outside! The gardens were gorgeous and lots to explore. Our boys loved going off after dinner and breakfast to say hello to all the birds.
We thought that the service was excellent, and all the waiting staff were so helpful. It was such a help having Aziz to ask for advice which made us feel even more relaxed. Breakfast was so special - a la carte by the pool; what a treat! I agree with other reviews saying how magical dinner was in the evening.
Stephane was very kind and also took us for a tour of the aviary which we all loved.
The car to take us in and out of Marrakesh was excellent, and like a private taxi most of the time.
We can't wait to go again, and are planning our next trip. Thank you!

I've just returned from Marrakech and was keen to write this review as soon as I was back as my boyfriend and I had such a wonderful stay at Dar Ayniwen! I don't typically write reviews (in fact, this is my second ever!) but I felt I had to after we had such a brilliant time at Dar Ayniwen.

From when we arrived, we felt immediately relaxed and welcomed (despite our less than pleasant appearance in hiking gear!). Everyone at the hotel was incredibly friendly and always happy to help - we never felt like anyone was hovering but as soon as we wanted something, someone appeared to help!

As for the location and setting, it honestly couldn't have been more ideal. The hotel is set in just over two acres of land, with a large lawn behind the main house where the meals were served, where the pool is and where the sunbeds are based. However, beyond that is a huge number of palm trees, a large pond (with enormous fish!) and an aviary that provide a wonderful soundscape whilst you're relaxing! Our room was just off the main house and the short walk (less than a minute) from the room to the main terrace was on a footpath through a wonderful landscape of trees, flowers and even tortoises!

As I said, our welcome was incredibly friendly and after a short tour of the hotel and a little background to the area, we found out that we had been upgraded to a Premier suite (Tiwaline II Suite) that was just beautiful. It had a large sitting room, an enormous bathroom with the most incredible domed ceiling and marble bath/shower, a large bedroom and a private terrace with hot tub - we were absolutely spoilt!

Having already been out and about in Marrkech before we arrived and having climbed Toubkal that morning, we were more than happy to rest and recover for our long weekend! Having said that, we saw a number of other guests that headed into the medina using the hotel's free shuttle service so it would have been easy enough to arrange if we'd wanted to - but we didn't want to escape from our little paradise! We spent most of our days in the sunshine, swimming in the pool, playing cards in the main house and also spent one afternoon in the hammam and had a scrub and massage that was divine!

In the evenings, the garden was beautifully lit such that the terrace became a peaceful and romantic setting for dinner. It was explained when we arrived that the chef was very good but even that didn't prepare us for how delicious the food was! The beef tagine in particular was absolutely incredible and probably the best meal we had in our entire Moroccan trip!

We were so sad to leave this wonderful hotel yesterday - I really hope we come back one day! Our stay certainly will not be forgotten and I will be singing this hotel's praises to anyone going to Marrakech, either as a base for a sightseeing trip, to soak up the sunshine or for some R&R after a trek! Thank you so much to everyone there who made our stay so magical!

The easiest review to write. Everything and everyone at TOP. Location staff cleaning food shuttle (free) and on top of that a genuine attitude to make the experience unforgettable. Booked suite with jacuzzi- stay for 5days.
No doubt it worth every penny you invest - go booking with confidence.

We had an amazing time at the Dar Ayniwen Hotel. Everyone is so friendly and helpful from the moment we arrived. The hotel is situated away from the city which is so nice when you have had a busy day to come back to peace and relaxation. We stayed in the villa which had a private pool which was beautiful. The food was fantastic and we could have room service at our villa and eat lunch in our garden. Nothing was too much trouble for any of the staff there, they were all so willing to help. The Manager Asis was amazing too , helping us with places to go and organising champagne & cake for my husbands birthday. We would definitely go back and I can see why people do.
