Easy to find however off the beaten track. It separates the Menara airport from the city. The reservoir is old and slightly neglected. The main building seems to be the biggest attraction. It is dated but not as much as the gardens itself. While everything is Marrakesh is watered Menara gardens do look like that memo wasn't received. Many locals... More

Worth a visit if your passing or for a bit of peace quiet, Sadly it was cloudy when we visited so we couldn't see the Atlas mountains. The water is very grubby but full of fish, which you can feed (someone selling bread on site). Surrounded by lovely olive groves.

Luckily we were going past this anyway, but I wouldn't go out of your way to visit this unless you like walking through a load of olive trees with a fairly ugly reservoir. Can't see why this is on any tourist guide's agenda.

Visited menara gardens as part of a organised tour . Relaxing stroll up to the pavilion and reservoir . Local traders and camel rides without any hassle. Good information boards but mainly in French . Good to visit on a fine day , entrance on very busy road and junction as usual take care crossing roads

We walked a long way to get to the menara gardens and were disappointed by a shabby, lacklustre public space. The pavilion and basin have absolutely no redeeming features. Only interesting thing is seeing the locals strolling on their day off, talking and singing. Not really worth the effort.

A fairly average green space, which for some could be considered a relaxing escape from the city's hustle and bustle, but is certainly not the place for a travelling beansprout salesman... After failing to sell any beansprouts in my first 5 days in Marrakech, I was getting desperate to make a sale. I didn't know if perhaps getting a haircut... More

I was interested to go to the gardens and slightly disappointed. The views and background are ideal for photographs but the actual gardens itself is just a few trees and shaded area.

The photos of the pavillion and pond with snow capped Atlas Mountains in the background is a famous image of Marrakech, if you get a clear day at the right time of year then it is possible to get that photo but most of the time you will not see the mountains. Apart from that there is not a whole... More
