We have just returned from a wonderful late February 2011 visit to Marrakech and stay at Dar Ayniwen villa hotel with our 7 year old daughter.
For anyone currently thinking about a visit, Marrakech felt safe and was operating normally, despite unrest in other parts of North Africa. The city itself was full of western travellers enjoying their holidays, and the weather during our stay has been consistently excellent, in the high 20s!
Dar Ayniwen itself is situated well outside the centre of Marrakech in the Palmeraie region, and is a quiet and peaceful location. As a courtesy, villa staff will drive you into Marrakech, and pick you up again at any time. Dar Ayniwen is a green paradise and a hidden gem which we are reluctant to tell you about because we would prefer it to remain that way! However, in honour of the excellent Stefan and his staff, we feel duty bound to say that the stunning interiors have to be seen to be believed (1920s French Moroccan antique), the gardens and pool are paradise, the food excellent, and the service second to none! We consider ourselves well-travelled and this is one of the best vacation experiences we have ever had! Whilst we shared our stay with other guests, the small number of bespoke rooms meant that it was a very relaxing and private experience, with everyone showing full respect for each others space. We will certainly return!
