I don´t understand why this place is even called an 'attraction'? Once you phase the taxi-price-discussion step an you get there. You will only find an empty land among the luxurious resorts, fulfilled with palm trees, which didn´t grow up there naturally. Then, you can either again discuss the price for the tipical dromedaire promenade, or jump back on the... More

We were rather disappointed by the golf club at La Palmeraie. It felt like an undercapitalised private members club in need of attention. The course itself is fun and tight but scruffy. The caddies were good. The pace of play was a bit slow.

Absolutely loved this quad biking and all the landscapes, pot holes, dips, pebbles, stony ground, loads of sand, hills for a great drive with quad!!! Palm trees dotted around :-), and a lovely quiet farm while we rested from quadding and were given mint tea and cake from a Moroccan family who were very kind. Enjoyed my quad partner who... More

We wanted to ride a camel, but didn't have time to go on a desert trek. La Palmeraie was our alternate. The camel ride was fun, but definitely a tourist attraction. Our camel guide complained that his tip wasn't enough and was quite put off when he was told that the money received was for the both of us (two... More

You expect to see luxurious landscapes full of palm trees. Not that at all. We took a tour of the palmeraie on a horse carriage. It was boring and long. The only plus is we could relax our tired feet for a while. This place has lost all its glory. Luxury houses are hidden all over. We can't even see... More

We didn't do camels, we went to the art gallery, fascinating, original, lovely buildings, exhibition by local artist, stunning and utterly peaceful garden, fantastic loo. Why on earth get conned on a camel? Taxi from centre cost 30 dirhan.

Paid too much for that camel "ride". There is no sand in that "desert" experience, just trash. It's a true dump. Driver of turistic bus takes you there, where he gets comission (see him get it).

We booked our camel ride through our riad. They booked our other excursions with good success so we trusted them to steer us to the best. The driver who took us out to the camels even stopped and bought us cold, bottled water for our trip. We had a great ride. It was my first time riding a camel and... More

The best way to visit the palmeraie, is through the hop on hop off bus, climb on and sit in for the hour long ride. You will go pass nice hotels and golf courses. The driver will take a 5 minutes break, where you can take a few pics of the camels. But do it from your bus as if... More
