I wouldn't mind living here. the workmanship visible in the floors, walls, ceilings, doors, stained glass windows, is amazing. The ceilings are so high and the rooms large. The gardens are beautiful with the fountains and chirping birds.

Bahia Palace takes around half an hour/forty five minutes to tour, though can be more if you want to relax. Entrance is 10dhs, which is low considering the amount of artistry you see. The tilework, carved doors and painted ceilings are so beautiful.

On a hot day, we spend a pleasant and peaceful hour viewing the gardens and rooms. There was plenty of shade and inside the palace the temperature was pleasantly cool. Wonderful!

Well worth a visit. It was probably the most crowded place we have been in a week of Morocco but just gorgeous. Reminded me of the Alhambra but it is a long time since I have been there so not sure if that is accurate....More

Probably one of the nicest places for a 5 year old to be able to have space to roam. Not overly busy compared to majorelle gardens.
do the rooms have a WI-FI?
