“Good for a drive by”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 23, 2013

The Palace was beautiful from the outside and worth a slow drive by. We were told that you could not see the Palace, if one was so inclined. There's so much more to see in Morocco than Palaces.

“You're only allowed on a distance”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed August 29, 2013

The palace seems to be beautiful but unfortunately you're nt allowed to look at it closely. You're only allowed to walk up and down the central road and that's it. Even if you want to leave you can't use the gates of the central road and you have to get back to where you came in.

“Beautiful”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 30, 2013

A beautiful palace like all the rest all aound morocco. Unfortunately, if you are not in a tourist bus, you can no longer just go and visit it. You cannot go in, vut you can see it from the outside, and maybe approach the main gate. There is also a mosque, the Tuarga area where people who worked in the palace lived, and the Royal Guard.

“Nice to see”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 13, 2013

Very lovely grounds but you cannot get into any of the buildings. Do not get too close to the guards as they don' seem to like tourists.Not really very much too see.

“Huge open space!”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 12, 2013

Good for a photo stop and to stretch your legs! I'm sure everyone's photographs will look the same cos you cannot get any closer to the guards! And it is the only place you can take pictures of any police or guards. And did you know that the Moroccan flag is flown regardless if the Royal family is home or not?
