What can I say about Dar Ayniwen that will not be an understatement? Certainly THE highlight of our 9 day stay in Morocco.
Aziz the manager and Stephane the owner were impeccable hosts, always ready to accommodate our every wish with a smile on their faces.
Every single individual from their numerous staff was courteous, helpful and efficient. A chauffer was always on stand by to drive us out and pick us up in short notice which is quite necessary as the hotel is slightly out of the city itself, in the Palmeraie area.
We got an unexpected upgrade to our room which was stunning, a little piece of heaven on earth!
The whole estate, grounds, terraces, patios, lounges and swimming pools that await once you cross the front gate of Dar Ayniwen transport you to another place in time!.A calming oasis for the senses which is much needed after the hassle and bustle of the Medina and Marrakesh.
In terms of food, there is a house chef who is ready to prepare lunch and dinner in short notice. We did have dinner one night in the hotel which was nice but felt slightly over priced compared to other restaurants of the same calibre in Marrakesh. It's worth trying it out though as you are guaranteed a decent meal in wonderful surroundings (they are happy to serve you in any part of the gardens or lounges or even in your suite, as we did).
Breakfast is generous and lovely, the home made yoghurt was a revelation!
All and all, the Dar Ayuniwen experience is worth every penny and is highly recommended to anyone visiting Marrakesh. Also, it would be the ideal honey moon destination as it is incredibly romantic!
Thank you Aziz and Stephane for a memorable stay!
