It is difficult to remember the mixture of apprehension & expectation of visiting Marrakech for the
first time. If you book into Dar Ayniwen you will be guided through what is the Marrakech experience - Enjoy!!!
They collect you at the Airport ( about 18minute drive) which saves you the first hurdle of the
inexperienced traveller to Marrakech of negotiating the Taxi Drivers. In fact the driver/car service Dar Ayniwen offer will save you several hundred Dirham over your stay. But best of all
about the service is the piece of mind and security you will be delivered & collect when you wish, and not end up on an unexpected camel ride.
Visiting Dar Ayniwen for 4th time - so you can guess we like the place.
There are only 8 or 9 rooms - and all are excellent. They are furnished with character/Antiques with most of the rooms having large bathrooms - baths and hand held showers. If you like modern hotels with walk in showers this might not be for you. The experience is alittle like staying in someone's private villa.
It takes a day or so to chill out/gear down to the pace/peace & tranquility off Dar Ayniwen and its beautiful garden.
Breakfast/Lunch/Dinner can be server whatever time (within reason) and anywhere you want
at no extra cost - they will happily serve breakfast on your balcony or terrace at 11.30am.
Sleep quality is excellent - especially knowing you can wake-up when your body clock decides.
The pool is lovely - heated to take the chill off - this can only be appreciated when you have been in a few minutes as the outside temperatures can be so hot.
In my/our view Dar Ayniwen is a very special place, but it might not be for everyone - you are
15 minutes from centre of Marrakech - so can't walk to cafe's or site's. However - just ask and the car service will take you.
The Staff are excellent - seemingly hidding in back ground. Aziz & Stephane are always on hand with restaurant suggestions and advice. We will return again.
