“Dissapointing El Badi”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed July 8, 2013

The only thing which makes people happy to enter the palace may be just a view from the terrace. The rest of the palace is just stones and stones

“Disappointing palace”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed July 6, 2013

This so-called palace was not very well maintained. The only nice part of this place is its terrace view of Marrakesh's skyline, but that's it! Other than that this place was pretty boring - we finished seeing the whole place in like 15 min. Better to spend the time and the entrance fee on other attractions nearby.

“Pretty architecture”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 6, 2013

Very cheap to get in so didn't mind lack of furnishings. Pretty ceilings and flooring so if this interests you then its worth a visit.

“A good way to spend a few hours”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 6, 2013

El Badi Palace were preparing for a concert, so that took a bit of the look away, but it was a nice couple of hours well spent. It will look fantastic once they finish the renovations.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 25, 2013

This was a nice surprise especially the underground rooms, looked like they were preparing for a concert of some sort would be a great venue. needs a little western input to market this place better but it was a nice couple of hours well spent. recommended
