Disappointed that the lagoon and infrastructure are crumbling and messy. It could/should be a beautiful place to visit.

The gardens are a little bleak and arid, even in January when we went. The classic pic looks fantastic, but it is not worth the drive to see.

menara gardens set in peaceful surrondings is an enjoyable pleasure, walking round you feel like your the only person there,the main intention was to irrigate the surrounding gardens and orchards the water actually comes from the mountains in the background its a truly magical place and an enjoyable trip.

There no gardens to be seen. We visited on a very hot day and there is little almost zero shade. It is free to enter the park but you have to pay to enter the €1 but not much to see. The olive trees are spread and almost grown out as you would see on a map. A couple of... More

A totally pointless visit. Dirty, dull, and boring place. Don't bother, you'll only get conned by the unhelpful "guides" demanding money for a piece of paper copied from the internet, told you can see the airport, and my favorite highlight was having an airplane taking off pointed out to me.

We visited on a hazy morning too & I agree you need the perfect conditions to probably appreciate the place fully. If you walk behind the Pavilion you can for 10dh go in, however there is a chap in there who will give you a piece of paper with a few words on that are very similar to the guide... More

We visited on a hazy, cloudy day which unfortunately meant the place looked rather washed out. I'm sure it would be beautiful on a very clear day during sunrise or sunset as I've seen many beautiful traveller photos, but without these perfect conditions it's just a murky fishing lake with very little else around it. Also be warned that there... More

I'm still wondering why this poor monument visually represents Marrakech. The reality is mostly disappointing, pavilion is not any wonder and you can't get close to it, in the pool are "fish monsters", the garden is made only by olives trees with plenty of dogs and cats and the stalls with drinks and souvenirs are just sad chapter of this...

After the hustle and bustle of the souks and the city, this place was very tranquil. There wasn't loads to see but I got some great photos here. We used the tour bus to get here, it was easy & worth the money to use the tour bus.
