Dar Ayniwen Villa Hotel
Ranked #15 of 501 Hotels in Marrakech
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 27 June 2009

After many hours of research and a few trips to Marrakech to check out venues for our wedding we chose Dar -Ayniwen to celebrate our wedding with our family and friends. . Stephane & Aziz promised a lot and delivered the DREAM ! Dar- Ayniwen gave us a wedding that far surpassed our expectations, everything was done to an excellent standard and they decorated the grounds beautifully with amazing flower arrangements.
Service is excellent without being obtrusive. Nothing is a problem, we wanted fire eaters and belly dancers for entertainment, no problem. A Gnoua band to welcome the wedding party and a abrasque band throughout dinner - again no problem.
All the suites at Dar Ayniwen are fantastic with each having its own feature which makes it special. The gardens and pool are beautiful both in the day and at night.
Three weeks later and all our friends and family are still talking about Dar Ayniwen, the food, the ambience, the location, the staff - what a fantastic place it is. Any one looking to spend time in Marrakech, we would urge you to experience this villa, we have stayed in many riads & hotels in Marrakesh and whilst this is not the cheapest it is by far the best.
Our heartfelt thanks to Stephane, Aziz and the Dar-Ayniwen team for making our dream come true, for making our wedding so very special and giving us so many wonderful memories.

My husband and I just got back from a four night stay at Dar Ayniwen and we can't stop raving about this place! From start to finish, our trip was fantastic. Thanks to all the past reviewers of this gem - we wouldn't have stayed here without them and would have missed this wonderful place!

Upon arrival, we were very warmly greeted by Aziz who took such good care of us during our stay. We were upgraded to the (800sq ft) Galaxy Suite which is beautiful and has a great balcony overlooking the pool and garden area. Aziz said to treat Dar Ayniwen as a home away from home and he was certainly right. With only 8 suites (which were all full when we arrived as it was the weekend but then we truly had the place to ourselves by our third day) even at full capacity, it feels like barely anyone is there. This could also be because the service at Dar Ayniwen is so great - there's only a few staff but they are constantly around to help with whatever need you may have. And the free car transport is great which makes being 15-20min outside the Medina very easy. As this was our frist trip to Marrakech, we originally wanted to stay in the Medina but decided that the Palmeraie would be more relaxing (and we wanted a place with a pool bigger than the size of a bucket) and we are very glad we decided how we did. The car transport was super easy - we didn't have to pay for a taxi the whole trip.

We hope to be able to visit again soon! Thanks for everything Aziz!

Dar Ayniwen is simply not a hotel, it is much more intimate; in fact it's rooms together make up what was formerly a private mansion. Arriving at the grounds was almost surreal between the beautiful gardens, filled with exotic plants and animals, the rooms, tastefully adorned with Moroccan art and memorabilia, and the service, fit for a king. One cannot be disappointed.

Just returned from this fabulous villa. The personal, friendly, and practical attention by the staff cannot be overstated. We stayed for six days and felt we could spend every minute of our time on the premises. The food was exceptional. Every morning at breakfast we were asked if we intended to have lunch or dinner on the property and what we might be interested in eating, as the chef goes to the market daily to assure that only the best and freshest ingredients are used. The staff is available 24/7 and what stands out is that every one of them seem to truely love what they do. A driver will to take you anywhere, anytime--which is the best way to travel into and/or around the medina. Also, make sure to take advantage of the on site hammam/spa
I could not provide anymore praise for the way Stephane`, Aziz and their staff operate this small boutique hotel.

This was the most luxurious, personable, clean, and downright perfect hotel I have ever had the pleasure of staying in. We were greeted by the owner, a lovable teddy bear of a man, who was more than helpful in addressing our travel concerns. The staff was available at all hours of the day and never disappointed, no matter how bizarre the request. The garden and pool areas are to die for, perfectly manicured everyday to ensure the utmost quality. I would not have done Marrakech any other way. You can't go wrong staying at Dar Ayniwen.

Having never before been to marrakech, we had no idea where to stay. Reading the reviews on Trip Advisor for this hotel convinced me we should stay at Dar Ayniwen.
We were not disappointed. It really is paradise. A peaceful oasis away from the bustle and noise of Marrakech.
We stayed in the galaxy suite which was perfect with 2 big balconies for morning and evening sun.
Nothing was too much trouble for Aziz or his team who looked after us superbly with delicious food which was very reasonably priced and the taxi service there is second to none.
Go there .....preferably without small children who would spoil the peace.
