5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 January 2014

This hotel is pretty much perfect.

It is located just outside Marrakech in the rural palm tree plantation are, but there is a frequent, complimentary bus to the centre of town so guests get both peace and quiet, and easy access to all the fun of Marrakech. The main building and surrounding little villas are beautifully designed, reflecting the local architecture and expertly decorated to give you a sense of being in Morocco without ever feeling like a tourist. It genuinely feels like you're a guest in someone's beautiful home, someone who very kindly turns up with a glass of freshly squeezed orange juice every time you step out of the pool!

The hotel gardens deserve a review all by themselves. Even if you decide not to stay here try to come over for a visit, they are exquisite. Cleverly placed paths give you the sense of an even much larger space and the fun of discovering a new corner in every walk. A coy carp pond, free range turtles and a stunning collection of birds complete the experience.

Hotel staff are extremely friendly and went out of their way to make our stay memorable. They did their best to cater to our every need, from wonderful meals of local cuisine, to camel rides, to recommendations for antique dealers and Beduin carpet sellers!

We visited with our 2 year old daughter which was a bit of a gamble, but it worked out really well. We booked the little villa furthest away from the main building, which had no immediate neighbours so no possibility of disturbing anyone with toddler tantrums, the bus took us into town every morning which was a great diversion for the little one and then we spent the late afternoons by the pool.

from arrival at the airport to the peaceful pleasure in elegant surroundings, staff, manager Aziz and owner made the stay feel delightful. My wife and i enjoyed her birthday with 3 days in Marrakesh. No better hotel, with 8 suites only, beautiful gardens and pool, aviary, guinea fowl pottering about. 20 mins ride into the city and arranged pick up, by hotel staff in hotel vehicles (at no cost). All could be arranged by the staff, from restaurant bookings to day tour plans to camel rides. I understand they are developing a family suite. They deserve success, and I would recommend fully.

My partner and I were celebrating 20 years together. It proved the perfect choice. So peaceful and relaxing to come back to after enjoying the exciting hustle and bustle of Marrakech's medina. From the word go, service was highly personalised (tea and sweetmeats on arrival). The shuttle service in and out of the town was just the ticket. Beautiful gardens, full of birdsong. Good breakfast. The hammam all to ourselves, once reserved. The house is decorated with exquisite taste to create a perfect restful atmosphere. I would have no hesitation in recommending this hotel to any one wishing to enhance their experience of Marrakesh.

Room Tip: All suites looked marvellous.

If you are tired and if you want change your mind choose Dar Ayniwen Villa Hotel. After long time taking care of our baby we have decided to spent few days there. We have been very satisfied and happy. Privacy and atmosphere is the best on this place. Full recommendation.

My wife and I were looking for some warm weather and a restful few days away. Here we found it in abundance. A lovely hotel in beautiful gardens with a pool. The food is great and plentiful. Nothing is too much trouble for the Aziz and his staff. The ethos of the place is to look after you and make sure you enjoy your holiday. The gardens are so quiet and relaxing you do not want to leave, but when you do the hotel offers an excellent car service into the centre of Marrakech.

We will be back

Room Tip: All the rooms look good.

I've stayed here twice and can't wait to go back again. It was quiet and the property is beautiful. I loved having by meals by the pool, surrounded by fig, date, citrus, and olive trees. Loved the
nocturnal swims--with traditional Moroccan lamps encircling the pool! So romantic!! The rooms are beautifully furnished and the washrooms contain extras like essential oil sticks
The staff was polite and attentive, yet unobtrusive. The whole place was very clean and the gardens were amazing. The free shuttle service into the city centre was well-organized and very efficient. The only thing left for me to do was to relax.

We had an amazing stay at this hotel and would definitely stay here again. The property is set in a vast garden which is stunning and so relaxing- we spent all our days lazing by the pool. The service was first class and we were made to feel so welcome and all our needs were catered for. A plus was the complimentary car service which picked us up from the airport and also was available to take us into the city and back which was brilliant. All the staff were brilliant and the food there was also excellent.
