“Amazed by its size”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 9, 2013

We were going to leave this out of our tour but I am glad we didn't. It has come into disrepair but I think there are efforts to fix it up. The immense size of this was what surprised me the most. It was much bigger than I had anticipated. Although it is mostly just old walls, it is still quite interesting to walk around to imagine what it was in its heyday. Also, should you enjoy getting close to nature, you will be able to do so by walking along the top and observing the many White Storks nesting atop.

“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.
