Owner description: After your hammam at Mythic Oriental, come for a stroll in this extravagant 19th century palace. You’ll be able to prolong your relaxation with the beauty and quiet offered here.

Not much here in the way of outstanding architecture. A few nice ceilings, some old tile work, etc.

Like most of Marrakesh this is a disappointment.The thing is, when your there you have to do something, so you join the meager legions of tourists flowing into this and other poorly maintained and exhibited "points of interest".

If this and let say, the Badi Palace were in Paris, Rome, or Miami they would be considered eye sours and no one would pay anything to see them.

Avoid at all costs!

Well worth a second visit - we spotted loads of detail that we didn't notice on our first trip. Don't miss this!

Truly gorgeous architecture, and wonderful detail on the ceilings and columns. It got a lot busier as we left so worth getting there early. Definitely worth the entry fee!

Interesting experience but lacked any background historical information. The palace walls offered a great view of Marrakesh.

Sort of boring. No furnishings whatsoever. The garden had very few flowers. The courtyards were much more barren than in Spain. The ceilings were ornate, very reminiscent of Granada. Worth visiting if you are nearby; otherwise, don't make a special trip.
