“ok but not as 'amazing as Thomson would have you believe'”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 11, 2013

The Thomson rep made it sound like a 'must visit' location.....dissappointed as we did it in well under an hour including having tea and pastry in the coffee shop. If you do go spend the extra dirhams and see the Berber museum they have on site.....that was probably the highlight as the garden is all cacti and bamboo (which had lots of awful graffiti on it!)

“Very nice”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 10, 2013

The place was beautiful but not the sort of place you'd visit twice. I love nature, and this place is a mini version of Kew Gardens in London, which I love. If you're staying in the old medina, take a taxi to this place.

“Oasis of calm”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 10, 2013

Not big but pleasantly calm with some lovely plants. The cacti are quite spectacular. The Berber museum is very interesting, with some very attractive exhibits and the patio cafe is great.

“Impressive but small”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 9, 2013

We wanted to see the gardens as it is listed as one of the top attractions in Marrakech. While plants, in particular cactuses were very impressive, gardens itself are quite small and can be seen in 30 minutes or so. However, they are very peaceful and it was a nice way to get away from the busy Medina.
