I cannot speak more highly of Dar Ayniwen. It's unlike a hotel, more of your own private palace and unlike anywhere else I have ever stayed before. From the minute you're picked up from the airport, the staff and wonderful owner Stephane cannot do any more for you. Their relaxed yet attentive attitude made our stay an absolute dream. The...

Due to severe storms in Manchester we were delayed by four hours which meant arrival in the early hours of the morning. The Hotel had still provided a driver which was our first relief from worry. The driver even had time to point out city sights as we drove to the hotel. We were very impressed. The following morning we... More

This hotel is in a quiet area of Marrakech and with just 10 rooms feels very personal. It is stunning - there are beautiful gardens and the house is full of antiques. We stayed in a suite which was great for 3 adults staying together but would have also worked well for a couple and 2 children. The room was... More

We had the most amazing stay at Dar Ayniwen - the property, the staff, the food, the setting - everything was beyond perfect. The staff need an extra mention as they are superb; attentive without being too much and really friendly and accommodating. Just wonderful - we'll definitely be returning to this beautiful oasis again one day. Thank you xx
