Not that special

Walked a distance expecting something spectacular , but all I saw was dry land. Various people kept coming to me , trying to sell things.

Thank goodness we had hired a scooter for getting around - I would be so cross if we had walked here or paid for a taxi. The lake was empty - I can only assume temporarily drained? But who knows - this is Marrakech after all. The rest of the park just consisted of scrubby olive trees strewn with litter,... More

There was NO WATER as shown in the picture. Instead there were trash bags and a dingy in there. Do not recommend paying to enter until they put water back in.

Visited in October 2015, was very peaceful. You could easily spend a couple of hours there, the garden mainly consists of lots of Olive Trees and plants Was a lovely experience

We hoped for a relaxing time in the menara gardens because our guidebook suggested it as a opposite to the busy medina life. However the pool had no water in it, the museum was way to expensive as there was nothing except a view of the dry pool and even the toilet in there was really dirty. Besides the pavillon... More

walked a very long way to find a big muddy pit of bottles and dead fish, don't bother until you know it has been refilled

This spot is well out of the Medina and the walk (or any other mode of transport come to that) is simply not worth it. The gardens are just a large Olive grove with rows of trees and the fish pond, while large, is muddy and murky so to spot any fish is rare. An engineering feat in its time... More

We walked from the our Riad in the centre of the city (approx 45 min) and the pool had been drained! Not sure if it was for maintenance but everyone who visited when we were there were also surprised to see it empty.

Dried out reservoir, rather dirty and the taxi driver was right, there was not much to see.. Lots of olive trees and that's about it. So after a while we went for the palmieres oasis in the west and that was allright, but again not to be compared to Majorelle
