Lonely Planet review

Local lore tells of a sultan who seduced guests over dinner, then lovingly chucked them in the Menara’s reflecting pools to drown. Nowadays dunking seems the furthest thing from the minds of couples canoodling amid these royal olive groves, or families picnicking in the stately 19th-century pavilion. On clear days, come for dromedary rides and photo ops against the Atlas Mountain backdrop.
