After doing a lot of research searching for a place to stay in Palmerie I chose this lovely looking elegant Riad for a trip with my teenage daughter. We wanted a pool and garden and someplace with character. We found all three at the very special world you enter when you come to Dar Ayniwen. It' sone of the oldest...

This was our fifth time in Dar Ayniwen and as per usual it was the most wonderful stay! We travelled with our best friends and all of our children and were due to stay for 6 days but ended up there for 2 weeks following the Volcano eruption in Iceland - which was a massive blessing for us all!

I can echo previous positive comments. Stephane was a very gracious and hospitable host. The offer to use the hotels transport free of charge to and from the center of town was very well organised, with the driver being there in plenty of time prior to both journeys to and from. Nothing ever seemed to much trouble, the staff at...

This was our first trip to Marrakech with our best friends, who have been raving about Dar Ayniwen for the last few years. Really didn't know what to expect as we are used to the large hotel resorts in places like Dubai. However, we are quite reluctant to praise this magical place as we really want to keep it as...

We had the most wonderful stay at this incredibly peaceful and welcoming Riad. Aziz and his colleagues could not have been more welcoming and nothing was too much trouble. From breakfast by the pool every morning listening to the wonderful bird song to candle lit dinners at night. Aziz stressed that this was our home whilst we were there and...

Absolutely stunning villa and gardens. We travelled with our 14 month old who was made extremely welcome. He enjoyed toddling around the gardens, chasing the tortoise and watching the parrots. I agree with the reviewer who said that it felt as if we were in a private villa rather than a hotel. Service is extremely personal and nothing was too...

We had a wondeful stay at Dar Ayniwen on our first trip to Marrakech. The staff could not have been more helpful, nothing was too much trouble, we would definitely stay there again, it felt as if we were in a private villa rather than a hotel. Aziz could not have been more heplful in organising our various trips.

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!
