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

The Menara Gardens, nestling against the airport boundary in western Marrakech, bizarrely figure in most guide books as one of the places that you must visit. I suspect they are included on a number of city tours, and of course taxis will be happy to oblige as there is no other sensible way of getting there without your own car.... More

Unfortunately when we went it was a bit overcast, so our photos weren't as nice as they would have been if it was sunny. But well worth a visit for the beautiful tiles in the Pavilion.

We walked from the main square and wasn't very impressed the walk into the pool was very clean and when we got tot the pool was extremely dirty. You have to pay 10 DH each to get into the old building which had Morrocan decor throughout but that was it. In my opinion I enjoyed the walk there better

AS i arrived the attendant was clearing the area of visitors stating that it was closed. I walked around the outside and when about half way around discoverd that everyone had... More
