This is a somewhat down at heel and dusty 'garden' a little way out of the old town, near the airport. The signature view of the building, with the pol in the foreground and the... read more

This is a somewhat down at heel and dusty 'garden' a little way out of the old town, near the airport. The signature view of the building, with the pol in the foreground and the Atlas mountains in the background only really works if it is a crystal clear day (which it wasn't when we went there. The pool is... More

What a waste of time. We visited on a Sunday and realised that there was no pee-pee facilities. Then directed to go to a drink stall, alas they do not have the keys to the facility. What is the excuse for demanding payment from visitors in stirring heat and no adequate facilities? Moreover, the site has nothing worth seeing. Do... More

We walked from the square to Menara Gardens , very nice walk along a boulevard . Unfortunately the gardens are very 'down at heel' doesn't look anything like the photos we had seen before. We paid to go inside but I was prevented from sitting down until I paid a local man for a piece of paper. The paper is... More

My friend and I visited because we are keen photographers. Despite the negative reviews we had a pleasant time. We went in May and were a little disappointed that the Atlas mountains were difficult to see due to the haze, but it's still nice to walk around the pool and look around the pavillion. That is pretty much all that... More

In brief.... Nice gardens and lake There is an old man who walks round the upstairs part of the building offering information (he basically told us the water was 2m deep) then demands payment (even though we already paid to get in!?) I gave him 2 dirhams and he got aggressive so we just left. On the way out there... More

Take a taxi. Make sure you agree on the price - like 30 - or that the taxameter is going. The walk out is not worth it - even if you like to walk. If it is clear you can see the pavillion and the mountains behind. Bring a tele lens if you have. The garden is no garden really,... More

I walked for half an hour to get here and once I did, I could not figure out why I made the trek. The picture above explains why it's in the guidebooks. On a clear day, if the snow-covered Atlas mountains are visible, then I can see why it might be worth a visit. Across the pavilion are bleachers for... More
