It's a nice palace, and gives you a bit of history, but it isn't particularly impressive inside (maybe because all the pools were empty when we visited). It's a nice way to spend an hour on a nice day, but would avoid on a rainy day as a lot of it is outside.

Lots to see here, although it was under construction, there were not many people so we could view everything at our own pace. Particularly good was the Minbar which I think you had to pay an extra 10dh for and the underground labyrinths and the terraces for great views. Lots of lovely cats milling about as usual for Marrakech!! Total... More

Check prior to visit, don't do as I've done, I smash my nose on the door, even after a local told me that it was closed, but we never trust in locals, since they are always trying to sell you something, or take you to a parent or friend that will sell you something. The schedule date don't take it... More

Well worth the 10DH entrance fee. Around 10 minute walk from the main square. Can take up to an hour and a half to walk around. Had a lovely afternoon.

Great place to wonder around. Personally, preferred Bahia Palace but it's still worth it. Both Palaces are very different and also very close by each other. Cost about 10 mad.

We went there on the 1st of October and we're looking forward to the visit. However the place is closed from the 20th of September to the 14th of October 2016 so if you want to go there, always check ahead if the palace is really open!

I love places in a kind of 'under construction' mood. That's why I always visit la sagrada familia in Bercelona. El Badi somehow reflects this same grandeur. I wish it would be turned into this same kind of "visit while work is in progress" attraction...

Very impressive a must see in Marrakesh. After your visit I recommend to make a tour through the Mellah. The Mellah is the old Jewish quarter of Marrakesh. It has been recently entirely renovated. It is the new hotspot in Marrakesh. If you get the chance visit also Riad LakLak which is one of the few houses that is entirely... More
