“El Badi Palace”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 7, 2013

Great views over Marrakesh from the terrace, especially of all the storks nests. Very tranquil after the hustle and bustle of the city - nice to be able to wander at leisure. Well worth the entrance fee 10 MAD each. (less than £1)

“A palace”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 6, 2013 via mobile

This palace no longer has the glory of the magnificent palace it once was, it is like walking around old ruins. The view of the mountains from the terrace is beautiful

“Anti-Climax”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed April 2, 2013

If you expected to see visible remains of the past glory of Saadian Dynasty, then I'm afraid you might get disappointed. Except the walls and wholes in the ground that represented pools a long time ago, not much more is left to see.

“Haunting place, incredible birds”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 2, 2013

This is a huge ruined palace surrounding sunken orange groves, all enclosed in huge tall walls. It was quiet and you could let your imagination run wild - how this must have looked when it was built, how peaceful in crowded, noisy and dusty Marrakech. No hassles inside, you could wander at leisure. The orange trees were in blossom giving a gorgeous frangrance to the entire area.

The birds have taken over the walls - lots of storks sitting on their huge nests, and flying around so close. We also heard and saw a pair of small falcons who landed on a stretch of the walls, impervious to the few tourists below them.
