Owner description: 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.

“Jardin Majorelle”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 14, 2013

We were taken to the garden by our driver, Houssam, of Enjoytours-Morocco.com and a local guide referred by the tour company. They were magnificent. Marrakech was not one of our favorite spots in Morocco, so getting to the oasis of Jardin Majorelle was wonderful. The motif is green and cobalt blue. The buildings and walkways are cobalt blue amidst the most beautiful gardens. The site is run by Yves St. Laurens foundation in Paris. It was designed by French expatriate and furniture maker Jacques Majorelle in the 30's. There are many birds, cacti, and ponds in an exquisite environment. Do not go to Marrakech without seeing these gardens. I will attach some photos.

“Well worth a visit”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 13, 2013

On a hot June day this was a delightful place to visit. It is beautifully laid out, well kept with many interesting trees and plants. The Berber Museum was excellent and with ample information available on the exhibits. The "gift shop" was expensive but the cafeteria reasonable.

“Beautiful place to go!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 13, 2013

Loved the variety of plants! I suggest you to go around 5.15pm so you can still visit the museum inside and it's less hot. LThe light is less strengh at this time

“Beautiful”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 13, 2013

Beautiful shade-filled gardens. The Berber museum on the grounds is worth paying the extra 25 dirhams to visit.
