The main attraction here seems to be to watch the fish jump out of the water when they are fed, in reality that is the only time you can see the fish as the water is so dirty. It's a nice walk to and from if the weather is nice, other than that, it's brown water with fish and lots... More

I think this place is stunning. Before saying it was a waste of time,people should remember where they are. Moroccan people do their best I think to keep the place tidy nobody is funding them. People go there and they expected a Dubai service. Just enjoy the weather, the peace and calm, the mint tea, the people, the food and... More

Basically a dirty pool with some metal fences in and a very deteriorated and unlooked after pavilion. Was a good hours walk from the medina and complete waste of time!!

After reading mixed reviews on TripAdvisor I was unsure what to expect.This place seems to split opinions.But it is free to wander round and only 10 dirham's to see the interior of the Pavilion. Having lowered my expectations I was pleasantly surprised and am glad that I included it on my travel itinary.Best to choose a warm pleasant day.Apparently you... More

its not a garden - its a huge olive grove with a pavilion and a muddy lake with overfed carp. you can only use the toilet facilities (if you can find them) if you use the cafe (if its open - if not you are in trouble).

I got very disappointed when I arrive to Menara gardens. The artificial pool, the great lake that marks this "garden" - in fact, a great olive plantation - war terribly dirty! the water was brown and smelled very bad. The places seems to be abandoned, with old furniture, used in performances, spread away. It was really a deception

This is probably one of the nicest sights in Marrakech. The walk around the bassin of the Menara Pavilion is wonderful and when you get mid-way, the picture perfect postcard view of the Menara pavilion will be etched in your memory forever. If you are there on a clear day, you will see the Atlas mountain chain behind the Pavilion... More

Went here along with 3 friends, what a waste of time. There is nothing to see except a concrete pond full of fish, masses of uncared for olive trees & quite a bit of mud. Don't waste time here go to the jardin Majorelle in Marrakech, a memorial to Yves saint Laurent. Its well worth a visit.
