“Seen the worst part pbly”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 18, 2013

Went there with a horse wagon. Driver took us to a single stand. No choice to look for another offer. Had a 20 min camel ride (promised >30mins) throught a dump. Trash everywhere inbetween some single palm trees. Completely our fauft for not insisting of going around a bit more to see cheaper camel rides. Driver takes you there where he gets comission.

“Camel Rides! (don't get ripped off!)”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 24, 2013

We drove out near La Palmeraie to ride camels.

The 'camel lords' as I'll call them try and charge upwards of 600 dirhams for an initial price of a 30 minute camel ride.

For 2 people and a 30 minute rode each on our own beast we ended up paying 200 dirhams (100 each).

This is my second time on a camel. 30 minutes is more than enough time. In fact I would've been more than happy with a 10 minute ride.

Either way, still a fun experience in Marrakech!

“Villas, colour, beauty”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 10, 2012

While much of the Palmeraie lies behind the walls of the rich and famous, just cruising through its lanes and byways is a wonderful way to spend the afternoon. Visit one of the many hotels or restaurants in the Palmeraie for lunch and enjoy the wonderful views of the date palms and the mountains in the distance behind.

“a load of rubbish”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2012

really not worth the visit or the money you spend on it. sparse trees, boring camel ride - unintersting views - rubbish everywhere. it may have once been a beautiful oasis but nows it a pit od despair. nothing to see - but maybe the only thing - we paid for a camel ride to people who really needed the cash - but then again - thats marrakesh all over. you choose - but i wouldnt bother.

“Camel Riding or Quad-biking but nothing else”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 23, 2012

Plenty of palm groves/gardens and villas and hotels here. Many people come here for camel-riding but we came here for a bit of quad-biking in The Palmeraies, which was fun. It's close to the main route to Fes along the north side of Marrakech
