It is what it is, but was pretty poor....

It's a place where the locals go and picnic under the olive trees (and leave all their rubbish!) and wander around. It's a hang out for the young to play music and enjoy... read more

It's a place where the locals go and picnic under the olive trees (and leave all their rubbish!) and wander around. It's a hang out for the young to play music and enjoy themselves and for that reason it was an experience and it is great for them, but for a tourist seeking an attraction it was very disappointing.

Great view on pool, pavilion,palms and the Atlas mountains covered by snow. Out of traffic jam , sellers and river of tourists. Need only some chill out spots and could be perfect!

We visited the Menara Gardens on an excursion which also visited the Majorelle Garden. The Menara Gardens are quite dirty and not very well maintained. If you'd like to visit and see the building, you only need about 5 minutes there to take some photos and to take in the view - there's nothing else around so you really don't... More

We wasted a couple of hours getting too and walking around what appeared to be a large concrete holding tank which would be ideal for a windsurf school if the water to cleaner. There was what appeared to be a small crumbling Pavillion at one end which we didnot bother to go into. To get here we took a bus... More

Visits of the pavilion useless. Staff insists on receiving money for rambling explanation of history in two sentences.

Marrakesh is a great culinary destination; however, there is a point when the body needs asks for exercise to make room for the next meal. The Menara Gardens offer a great jogging trail in the middle of Olive tree plantations. I would recommend to stay on the built trails as someone there discouraged us from adventuring ourselves into the plantations... More

This place reminds me of a sewage treatment facility, but without the smell. You walk down a payed street (no traffic) past what is probably an olive orchard to what appears to be a concrete treatment pond with a small, square building at the other end, as people attempt to sell you t-shirts and "art". Perhaps the sewage treatment is... More
