“Meh”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed March 5, 2013 via mobile

One House Point to the Menara Gardens for being spectacular(ly crap). A turgid concrete road leads one past stray dogs and camel hustlers to a brown coloured pond. There a subtle hints of jet fuel from the adjacent airport and the olive trees offer courting couples a discreet opportunity for furtive intimate relations. True, the mountains are beautiful, just don't embrace the vista from this vantage point. in summary, a must for those with a penchant for dogging, steer well clear everyone else.

“not a lot there!”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed March 4, 2013

yep the pool gives great reflections of the Atlas mountains and the pavilion interesting but nothing else other than acres of olives, really for the local courting couples not tourists

“Don't bother”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed March 3, 2013

There really is nothing here, not even gardens, just wasteland. It is not worth the trip away from the medina to get here.

“A big dirty pond, an empty building and some trees.”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed February 28, 2013

You will get there, walk around the pond, pay 10Dh to look inside some boring building, and then wonder why you bothered. Dont
