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.

“Calm oasis”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 13, 2013

In the hustle bustle that is Marrakech, Les jardins de la Medina is a calm oasis to start exploring the city. I visited on a Saturday morning, and found it lovely and peaceful. By the time I left, a few bus loads had arrived which I was glad to have missed. It is a very small garden of tropical cactus, and a memorial to YSL and a beautiful gallery of his Christmas 'Love' cards. Thoroughly enjoyed, once finished I walked onto the street outside where I had coffee before taking a horse drawn carriage tour of the city, which I would also surprising recommend, not my usual thing, but its certainly is one way to experience Marrakech

“Charming garden”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 13, 2013

Suggest go by horse drawn carriage from the Medina and get the driver to wait for you. Negotiate your price in advance. Although not particularly large it is an interesting and unusual garden. Also has a small restaurant/cafe with a lovely outdoor seating area.

“Small, but well worth seeing”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 12, 2013

I was so glad we visited to the Majorelle gardens. They felt so tranquil, compared to the hustle and bustle of life in Marrakech, so we are really glad we went there. We visited them before we visited the Menara gardens, and the Majorelle gardens were by far the best. We bought bottled water in the gardens for less than 50p.

“Majorelle an oasis”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 12, 2013

The gardens are a huge tourist attraction, lots of people meandering around. But it is peaceful and tranquil inside. Lots of shade.
The blue hues are lovely and the reflecting pools quite picturesque. Should try to see it if you have a spare hour or so.

“Beautiful and Peaceful Garden”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 12, 2013 via mobile

Again another great place to escape the bustle of the City. Take a horse and carriage from the main Fna square and they will wait while you spend an hour inside. Very clean and tidy and interesting too all.
