Our guide book said half a mile walk from Jmaa el Fna but dont be fooled, its more like a mile and a half. Not a garden as we know it, just a pool for irrigation of the olive groves. There are ten thousand olive trees so finding shade is easy but really not worth the time out of our... More

Wondeful place to spend a rest time, eating something and recovering of all the walking visiting Marrakech.

This is not a garden at all but a rather poorly kept olive grove. Nothing wrong with that but just don't call it a garden. The "pavilion" is an empty building overlooking a big dirty water reservoir, yet they have no qualms charging you 10 Diram to enter it. The reservoir is a sandy water rectangular affair with some bit... More

Title says it all... There's a concrete street that goes in between olive and palm trees, and at the end a brown pond with a dead fish in it. It's calm but that's all there is to it: nothing to see or do.

Awful just a load of olive trees and a big dirty fish pond! No flowers no waterfalls , sellers trying to sell you t shirts and sweets and some locals catching shade under the trees , no tourists because it wasn't worth it

I am not sure if we missed something here but the "gardens" appeared to be olive groves, surrounding a reservoir with a nice pavillion. There were no plants or open green spaces. We got a horse ride there which was lovely, but it really isn't as good as the Jardin Majorelle. I really would rather not have bothered!

The park is populated with olive trees that offer shade from the heat of the midday sun. Families and nearby worked arrive prepared with some form of ground cover as the ground is dry and dusty. The pool in the centre is peaceful and offers a cooling brease occasionally.

When you scan through the TA reviews Menara Gardens brings very mixed reviews. Having been here on a sunny day previous I decided to return again. Perhaps the weather has alot to do with how you perceive the place. On both visits the sun shone brightly and it was warm. If you are expecting water fit for swimming you will... More

Was dropped off here being told it was a beautiful must-see, turned out to be a bit of a dump. Full of poor stray animals, and people flogging t shirts out of carriers bags (very insistent). Main pavilion looked shabby, and the pool was half full. No info about it around to read either!

The Menara Gardens are in effect a large olive grove surrounding a 12th century pavilion and reservoir. There are hundreds of trees the place looks to have seen better days, It's very run down. There are a few vendors selling drinks and food but sadly there is very little to see here.
