What travelers are saying
- Well worth it, do not miss, costs 70 dirhams to enter. There is a coffee shop also if you want a drinkWritten August 7, 2022This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of Tripadvisor LLC. Tripadvisor performs checks on reviews.
- An amazing garden that has surprises all around. It is super well made, and a bit addicting. Looking everywhere to find everything, and it is just amazing how many works of Arts are in there, and how it all fits in a greater work of art, and an experience that is unique to each one.
Take the time to go, and enjoy.Written June 26, 2022This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of Tripadvisor LLC. Tripadvisor performs checks on reviews.
- Lovely place to relax and take a break from the business of Marrakech. I especially loved the roof top cafe where we sat bc has a drink to really take in the atmosphere. The fountains around the garden are very peaceful. Would recommend to anyone who wants to relax and have a break from the business of the medinaWritten August 2, 2022This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of Tripadvisor LLC.

- Beautiful park and very well maintained.
Lazy river is a must.
I understand it is quiet at this time of year however not all the restaurants were open thus limiting choice.Written April 10, 2022
- Don't expect gardens, as Menara really is a large estate with olive groves and a water reservoir for irrigation purposes. Pleasant to walk around, though there is hardly any shade. At the entrance there are some vendors and even an option to make a camel ride.
Visited Menara years ago during spring when mostly locals would go there to relax during weekends. Now during the summer it is just too hot.Written July 26, 2022
- Free to enter, nice & quiet and really well maintained (apart from some horrible graffiti) Worth seeking out if you are in the new town and want a nice quiet sit down.Written May 3, 2019
- For starters I would like to note that this attraction seems to have two names. Tripadvisor calls it Jardin Bio Aromatique Nectarome but signs at the site refer to it as Jardin Bio Aromatique Ourika. Subsequent internet research along with my camera's GPS reveal that both are located at the same geographic site and are presumably different names for the same thing.
This attraction was our lunch (and last) stop on our bus tour of the Ourika Valley. We disembarked the bus on a side street and walked about 10 min down a alley to the garden. As a side note, on the left (west) side of the alley is the Mosque ElSouiQa. There is a stork's nest on top of its minaret. When we visited the stork was in residence. :)
The garden has a large number of beds of aromatic plants, mostly herbs, but also bushes and trees. Our guide explained the uses of the plants in culinary, cosmetic, medicinal, and alcoholic preparations. The smells were quite intoxicating. At times I felt like we were in a Simon&Garfunkel song - I saw parsley, rosemary, and thyme (however no sage :)
After the tour we were served lunch consisting of a variety of dishes. I recommend tasting each of them. I found some quite delicious, others I chose not to go back for seconds.
All in all it was a delightful end to a delightful tour of the Ourika ValleyWritten April 16, 2020
We loved this tour, great place to spend time and take pics!
You have to call and make an appointment to tour the gardens because they are often closed for private events and the have to make sure some one is available to show you around. Have your hotel call and set it up for you or send an email with notice.
We learned a lot about the different types of cactus. The have 2 lil baby camels that were super cute.
They are building a restaurant, so I would love to go back and eat once they’re done.

- not much to say about Agdal Gardens. They are big, but I would say not necessarily worth the trip-- especially is you walk from the medinaWritten March 15, 2018
- This charity is amazing- doing great work in Marrakech for the abandoned & stray cats, dogs & other animals including stalks & peacocks, as well as the incredible work they’re doing for the working horses & donkeys.
It’s a little off the beaten track but only cost 30 dirham in a taxi from the old town & we were given a tour by the really friendly & knowledgeable lady that works there.
They provide a rehoming service, as well as a free hospital plus emergency care for the injured or neglected animals they come across.
It’s great to know they are doing the best they can for the working horses & donkeys & she explained to us that all carriage horses have a band around their ankle which means the horse & owner are registered & the horse has to be bought in to be checked over & cleared for working. Any horse that is un-banded can be reported to them using the carriage number where you see the un-banded horse & actually after we left, we noticed some of these horses around the old square & reported the carriage numbers to them.
They are trying to raise awareness of animal welfare in Marrakech & doing such great work, amazing to see.

- Very nice park near Kutubie mosque. Nice for taking rest and to get some good photos of park, Fontana and mosque. Also locals selling coffee and teaWritten November 3, 2021
- Worth a look...if you have time to spare - especially en route to Jardin Majorelle. Provides a brief but worthy bit of interest - some thought provoking sculptures.Written January 30, 2019
