Next to the new TUI Medina Gardens Hotel along the main road from Koutoubia Mosque.
100 shops inside a cool calm open air centre over two floors.
Secure ATM for cash.
Shops accept cards (over 300 MAD) and Cash in MAD, Euro or GBP.
Best visited in the afternoon to avoid the sun when the hotel goers are by their pools! Browse on first visit and buy on second - worked for us. No pressure to but, prices are fixed and marked so no haggling!
The shop owners and staff really do want to talk and interact with you but only if you ask. Don't waste their time if you are not going to buy though, its not fair. If you don't bother them they are happy for you to browse no problem at all for as long as you want.
Nice clean Café serving tea, coffee, soft drinks and snacks for cash only by fountains inside.
WC is 3 MAD per visit and incl. tissue.
No stress and easy to spend a nice afternoon here with no security worries at all.
Best shop: Go past the café, past the ATM and on you right at the end the Man making and selling his Kaftans, Shirts and clothing while you wait. Take time to talk to him. Prices are fixed and advertised anyway. Many already made to choose from. Good quality and ideal to wear on a night out in Jemma El Fna. Go for the fitted long plain Kaftans to blend in, not a baggy mad coloured embroidered one! Also don't miss the upstairs in the courtyard for old wooden engraved rescued mahogany doors and plaques - if you have got the weight allowance in your suitcase.
