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.

“A calm oasis in the middle of bustling Marrakech”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 16, 2013

as we were only spending 3 days in Marrakech we wanted to make sure that we found the right balance between sightseeing and relaxing - fortunately at Jardin Majorelle, you can do both.

We chose to visit as it was one of the hottest days in Marrakech and didn´t want to be walking around in the heat. This was a great choice as it has a fantastic selection of plants and trees, it was peaceful and quiet and you can hardly feel the heat - breezy and cool. Very beautiful place overall

“Paradise”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 15, 2013 via mobile

After walking from our riad we couldn't believe this place could be so nice in amongst the busy roads and hotels that surround it. Once inside your surrounded by an array of palm trees flowers and all sorts. I'm not one for gardens at all bit thoroughly enjoyed it. The Berber museum is worth a visit and we also had a nice lunch in the cafe. A real peaceful paradise in such a hectic city!

“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.
