Nicely designed and maintained gardens, similar to those of Generalife in Granada, Spain. It’s a good place to recoup from the intensity of the market atmosphere.

Yves Saint Laurent was one of two artists who restored this unusual garden established by Jacques Majorelle. The bright blues (the color majorelle) and oranges are a delight . The adjacent Berber Museum is interesting, and the gift shop has many unusual gifts and jewelry. A very nice way to spend the morning.

Wow! This is a most compelling and enjoyable experience. The striking colours combined with the array of flora, fauna, cactus and trees are just stunning. I'm not a big 'garden' visitor, but this is well worth the visit and relatively inexpensive entrance fee. The history associated with the place is also very interesting and its one of those places I'm... More

By far the loveliest place we visited. Good place to spend a couple of hours during the midday heat. Very shaded and plenty of places to sit and interesting views to admire. Beautiful colours. Definitely worth the 50 direrhams admission price.

I came here as part of a tour. Marrakesh is famous for its many gardens, some a thousand years old. This one was a late-comer to the city, having been planted in 1947 by a famous French furniture designer. It was later purchased and expanded by fashion mogul Yves Saint Laurent. It is a very peaceful and relaxing refuge from... More

We visited the gardens around 2 in the afternoon which was nice because we got out of the sun for while. The gardens are nice but if you are limited on time in Marrakesh, I wouldn't make this a destination must see.

The garden has an interesting collection of bamboos and cacti, all set in tranquil surroundings with a predominance of the famous blue colour to add to the "cool" feeling of the place. There is a lack of seating and no obvious place to buy water ( there is a restaurant) so take bottled water with you because it can get... More

An amazing collection of plants, palms and cacti. Very well organised, good toilets, cafe and small museum impeccably kept. Go early to avoid the crowds. This is a very popular destination. Look for the frogs and birdlife.

After the busy traffic in Marrakesh, these gardens appeared quiet and tranquil. Some fantastic specimens of cacti and other exotic plants were well-presented. There is a museum and although I did not go in, others in my tour group found it really interesting. Plenty of seating around the gardens. Great location for those interested in photography.

It was really peaceful in the garden and the vibe was great. Everything about the garden from the floras/faunas to colors were stunning and picturesque. I highly recommend and would go back again.

Gardens are a must to visit. 25 minutes walk from centre but with caleches and taxi around. Walking is best as you can absorb local activity and find it more appealing. Garden entrance is 50dhm and would def recommend to pay the additional 25dhm for the Berber museum. We had an amazing afternoon and some lovely and relaxing path to... More
