    Such a pleasure to stay here for almost a week. Our room/suite was the size of a flat with the most luxurious bathroom we've ever seen. Lovely heated pool and terrace, and absolutely beautiful gardens, an oasis of peace yet 15 minutes from the centre (subject to local traffic!). The staff couldn't do enough for us: transport, advice, bookings all taken care of. Special mention for the delicious cooking - it is more expensive than city centre restaurants but excellent value for the quality, everything prepared to order, organic / local for the most part. And they mix a mean cocktail! We loved it all and hope to return.

    The hotel is a few miles away from the medina but includes a free shuttle service which is very convenient. The rooms are very large although a bit dated and the grounds are beautiful and spacious. The hotel is popular with families and so not as romantic as the photos would suggest.

    An oasis

    A lovely oasis to chill out and relax by the pool which is set in a garden with wandering tortoises and the background chatter of many birds. The food at Dar Ayniwen was delicious and showed off the local cuisine perfectly.

    Beautiful hotel and gardens

    Beautiful hotel and gardens. Great owner/ manager. Food excellent. Rooms large and stylish, many with courtyards, more like suites. Only negative, bathrooms lacking separate shower, baths too large, water pressure low.

    Piece of heaven

    A little piece of heaven 10 minutes from the centre of Marrakesh. The Dar Aiyen is set within beautiful grounds with many exotic birds. Our spacious suite was luxurious with beautiful balconies south and north facing. We were able to see the extensive grounds from each balcony, these were great places to relax 1st thing in the morning or last thing as the sun goes down. The staff are extremely helpful, the food was fantastic, nothing was to much trouble. The owner Stefano and General Manager Aziz were extremely attentive to our needs. This is a beautiful place to stay and I will certainly be going back. Thanks to everyone at the Dar Aiyen who made our stay so special.
