Gueliz isn't a part of Marrakech you'll probably be visiting a lot, unless it's at nighttime to go clubbing in one of the big, European style night clubs. Looking for a place to grab a drink? Head out to Gueliz.

We spent a half day in this area, which we found to be rather bland and soulless compared with the Medina. It's major attraction is that it offers a respite from the hassling of the Medina. Also, the Harti Gardens are rather nice and the Majorelle gardens okay. Overall I'd recommend sticking to the Medina.

Travelled here to see what it was like but quite frankly it is pretty boring - we didn't come to Marrakech to see modern shops, we came to explore the more traditional parts. We had been to the Majorelle Gardens so if nearby then possibly take a quick look

Nice area for shopping, walking around with the locals, nice restaurants and cafes, don't miss a snack at Central food in Mohamed V road and a delicious seafood meal in Bahariya

It is what it is. The newer part of Marrakech is very similar to any other large cities in the world, same shops (H&M, Zara, Bodyshop etc.), similar structure but overall, it's a nice place to see. We stayed in the Medina and used Gueliz on one of the days to see something different. It's about a 30 minutes walk... More

If you are overwhelmed and tired of the traditional markets and souks of Marrakesh a few minutes drive to the modern Gueliz shopping area might be the answer. Here one finds an area resembling any downtown in a Western city. If you are looking for alcohol, the Carrefour supermarket in the basement of a shopping mall has a good liquor... More

We visited it on a few occasions, as there is a McDonald which the kids love. We had a rental car and there is a great underground parking. Here you will find the European shopping experience, with shops like H&M, Mac, Bodyshop, Adidas and even a huge Starbucks. Gets busy and lively towards the evenings. Its only 5 mins drive... More

If you are looking for a more modern side to Marrakesh, then this place may be well suited to you. However you don't get much of a Moroccan feel to this place.

Here you will get the feeling of being in a european city, with malls and restaurants. I know it doesn't sound exotic, but if you stay in Medina area this is a wonderful break from the noise and nice to get away from pushy salesmen just for an afternoon. Totally different lifestyle here - very modern.
