“Good, but was not able to be visited by the time I went”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 7, 2013

It was quite nice, but was not able to be visited by the time I went, so it was such a shame we could not get inside. Maybe next time

“Chaotic paradise”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 6, 2013

Amazing place to see especially at night!Impossible to explain to others as its not just about the photos. It's all the sounds and smell as well.Go to a rooftop terrace to have some mint tea which seems to be a signature non-alcoholic drink and enjoy the views. Just a word of warning: Be careful where you look or you'll be followed by all the "lovely entertainers" demanding payment for you looking at them or taking pictures of them.

“Square with many acts...”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 6, 2013

The square is filled with many acts like, snake charmers, henna ladies-go for the natural brown henna, monkey acts, horse and carriage ride-brilliant. Vibrant and bustling!

“Beware of snakes!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 5, 2013

Walk around here with purpose or you will get bombarded with Snakes, Monkeys and henna tattoos!

Be confident with the but not insulting, I can recommend the fresh orange from the sellers on the square and spend a few hours of an evening in one of the cafe balcony's to spectate the wonders.

An experience which you must take in whilst in Marrakesh.

“Over rated”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 5, 2013

Views from restaurant terraces in the evening were good but over all, found the constant haggling by snake charmers, toilet guardians etc fairly tedious.Food was generally quite dull and did not meet expectations.
