This was a second trip to Dar Ayniwen and it still managed to impress us and tick all the right boxes! All the previous reviews are so spot on....it is magical! You can't quite imagine what the fuss is all about until you’ve actually stayed there! On both trips we had chosen to stay for the first few days in the medina at two very chic and contemporary designed riads. Dar Ayniwen is quite a contrast in design with mix of antique and beautiful paintings and a bit of quirkiness thrown in! The gardens are simply stunning and in my view better than a trip to the Majorelle gardens which is full of tourists....don't bother, just stay here! Lying by the pool, surrounded by the wonderful birds, tortoises, guinea fowl and resident cat whilst reading a good novel is the best form of relaxation you could wish for. We were taken into town at the drop of a hat, but chose to have breakfast, lunch and dinner here as the food was excellent!
The staff are all exceptional; Aziz, Lamais and Zack were faultless and nothing was too much trouble. They seemed to glide and float around the house always with calmness but effortless efficiency which goes beyond all the 5 star hotels we have experienced. Not forgetting the tireless work which goes on around the beautiful gardens where the upkeep is impeccable and the staff always smiling! Thank you Stephane for a truly wonderful stay in your beautiful grand house..we shall be back!
