“Simply awful”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed August 29, 2013

Don't bother! It's an overgrown olive orchard with a muddy water storage pool in the middle. The pavilion is ugly and faces the remnants of the staging for a now disused son et lumiere show. Why anyone would want to take tourists here I will never know!

“Don't waste your time!!!”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed August 5, 2013

My partner was very excited about this place, so we decided to go there in the morning before the weather gets too hot. When we got there it was terrible, it looks like the place has been destroyed by a war, but funny enough when we took some pictures, they look quite good, but don't waste your time if your are only few days in Marrakech.

“Seriously? This is a tourist attraction?”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed July 17, 2013

Don't waste your time on going out of your way to this sad excuse of a tourist attraction. Any photos I had seen of this place prior to visiting had made it appear to be beautiful gardens that needed to be seen. Sadly the reality is a filthy stretch of water surrounded by crumbling concrete. It appears that this place has just been allowed to slip into ruin. Trust me your hotel pool will be much more impressive than this.

“Its an olive grove”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 13, 2013

Its a massive olive grove, but its ok, and it turns out you need to write 50 characters. As part of a package its fine, but dont do there just to se it.
