Beautiful area but beware the lack of shade when the weather is hot. Camel rides are anything from 100MAD upwards, worth it though as the camels appear to be better looked after than in some parts of the world. Don't bother with the quad biking though as the area is not big enough to truly let go.

really enjoyed the camel ride. when we came back realised we paid out 300 mad per person and 200 taxi fare when the local operators offered taxi and camel ride for 150mad. there were 4 of us so we paid 1400mad when it should have been 600mad. WATCH OUT

A repeat visit to this hotel, this time a group of eight to celebrate my 'big' birthday. The staff are friendly remembered me & my husband from our 1st visit 2 years before. Food, something for everyone, even the fussy eater. The hotel is magnificent. We will certainly return. Rooms are clean, staff friendly & helpful, pool is great. I... More

Excellent hotel. Good spa service, very quiet location. In the Palmeraie (palm grove) outside the center of town (always a taxi ride to anywhere). Its beautiful, but for my money when you stay here you lose a feel for the specialness of the Medina. After 6 trips to Marrakech, we much prefer staying in the Medina. If you are a... More

We were staying at the Caravanserai and a fellow guest told us that they had been taken by the hotel driver to a place to camel ride. They haggled, dressed up in costume and had a leisurely ride. She said there were baby camels too. We decided we would take the plunge so to speak and arranged to be taken.... More

During my pre-trip planning from home, my research indicated it would not be worth it to go to La Palmerie for a camel ride. However, after a day and a half in Marrakech, I decided that a camel ride would enrich my overall experience. Go if you must, but don’t expect much. And make sure you ask plenty of questions...

Not my favorite part of the trip but not a complete waste either. It was nice to get out of the crowds & noise for awhile. The walk here was serene for the most part. My daughter enjoyed the camel ride which while not free didn't break the bank either (it was less overpriced than a gondola ride in Venice).... More

The palm trees were beautiful and we experienced them via a camel ride and quad bikes. The latter was not much cheaper than what you would pay in the Uk so only do if you are really keen. Other than these two events, the place would have been uneventful for the kids in our groups. There was a tea shop... More

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.
