About
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.

    The underrated tourist trap
    The famous Le Jardin Majorelle is a place that is usually on everyone’s to do list when thinking of Marrakech. The majority of these types of typical tourist traps tend to be overcrowded & overrated however the Majorelle is the exception to this rule. It really is as beautiful as it seems in pictures & then some. The foundation has beautifully maintained the uniqueness of the gardens as well as laying out the history of Jacques Majorelle, the Berber people & of course Yves Saint Laurent. The cafe there sells exquisite tea & food, & the YSL museum next door houses the legends of YSL fashion with original sketches by Yves Saint Laurent. The entire experience can definitely be a day trip out & is 100% worth the hype.

    Beautiful place, but slightly overshadowed by crowd control
    This is my third time visiting the garden since 2010 and the experience has changed in some important ways. We took about an hour just visiting the gardens (we skipped the museums). Most notably, as earlier reviews noted, you can ONLY buy tickets online in advance now, not in person, and you must pick a half-hour time slot to enter. This is new and it's presumably to avoid what had apparently become round-the-block lineups to enter, which would be dangerous in the summer heat (it was 40+ celsius this week). Make sure you have your actual tickets on your phone, not the email confirmation of your purchase. At the same time, the price has doubled to 150 Moroccan dirham per adult, easily way more than any other sight in Marrakesh. It's also on the verge of being overwhelmed by crowd control. Aside from the timed tickets, there are guards standing at certain paths telling you not to go this way or that way, which unfortunately undermines the experience of wandering and discovering the gardens on your own, as you once did. The other annoyance is of course the crowds themselves. We were there in June, which seems to be the beginning of low season, so there were still areas that were pretty quiet, but any of the obvious places to take photos have awkward clusters of people all waiting to take the same picture. If you just want to actually take in the view and examine the details of the garden, you're at risk of someone breathing down your neck, waiting for you to move so they can pose. Again, it sort of defeats the purpose of the gardens. It remains a beautiful place, fun to explore, and inspiring for anyone who likes design and landscaping. Among other highlights, you'll be surprised at the sheer variety of cacti in the section near the exit. If you're in Marrakesh, there's no reason to skip it, especially as it's different from the typical medina sights. But if you want your own pictures, give yourself plenty of time and plan on being patient with impatient people.

    Beautiful Garden
    A nice garden with lots of different species of plants and flowers. It can get crowded but there are a lot of staff to help and guide you. It has been well maintained. It is recommended to book your tickets before arriving and be on time as there are certain number of visitors at a time. There is a museum dedicated to YSL designer next door to garden at an extra fee.

    This place is absolutely unique. Amazing play of colors and light. The large well-kept garden is impressive. Everywhere there are discreet employees directing the movement of tourists in an almost imperceptible way.

    A must visit if you are in Marrakech
    The Jardin Majorelle is a must see in Marrakech. We were very grateful that we booked our tickets a few days in advance and got the exact entrance time we were looking for. We visited in the morning which was perfect as it would definitely be really hot in the summer during the afternoon. We put our selfie stick to good use as they are so many stunning views in the gardens.

    Very beautiful garden
    Very beautiful garden, with old plants, including some gigantic cactus and palm tree. A visit that give you a sense of serenity. The only down side is that it is a bit pricey. We recommend combing with Yves Saint Laurent museum located next door. Booking is mandatory so do it online before going to have your time slot.

    Pretty small garden and well kept!
    Apparently a must do when visiting Marrakesh but I’m afraid to say we were pretty underwhelmed by Jardin Majorelle! ! It’s pretty and immaculate and well kept but small and we walked around it in under 10 minutes. So not great value for the price either! €15 (150dhs). The cafe looked ok but we went to Macha at the Dar El Boucha instead for a very unique coffee experience! Would I recommend? Possibly but just don’t expect a massive Botanical Garden - perhaps my expectations were too high!

    Outstandingly beautiful ...
    Considered to be one of the city highlights, not only because of having been built by Majorelle but because of having been inhabitted by the well known fashion stylist Yves Saint- Laurent, these astoundingly beautiful gardens and the house that proudly stands in it are definitely worth the visit, even if visitors have to be "patient", as the photo points are always overcrowded despite the visiting hour schedules. The blue house, now turned into a Berber Museum is equally worth the visit ( notwithstanding the fact that photos cannot be taken). I suggest you book your visit for the first available visiting hour (09h30) because that way you might stroll around a bit more at ease.

    This is a very popular attraction due to social media. You are required to queue no matter what time you get there. This is essentially a photo opportunity attraction, as people scramble to get the best shot everywhere you look. Whilst we did enjoy our visit, if you have limited time in Marrakesh we would recommend spending your time visiting authentic Riad sites in the Medina.

    A Must-See - truly unique
    I wasn't sure about this from the website - it looked small - but friends had recommended it, and I'm glad I listened to them. This garden is unlike anything I've visited before (and we're RHS and National Trust members!). The design and planting is exquisite. While the plants are mostly shades of green, the structures are vivid colours, especially blue and yellow, and the combined effects of foliage, cacti, palms, bamboo, water lilies, climbing bougainvillea are breathtaking. It's essential to book online in advance, and I'd recommend getting in as ealy as possible. We booked for 10am, and it was already quite busy at certain photo-points around the garden.

We visited this small garden in Marrakech after having visited several others in the area. It was expensive and we had a timed ticket which we bought on line the previous week and the site wouldn't let us buy tickets to the 2 museums as it said there were none left. On arrival we asked about museum tickets and they were available -lots of people buying them. The gardens them selves are in majorelle blue which is the garden's distinctive feature, however the gazebos were full of people queuing to have their photographs taken with views of the various water features. There is little underplanting of the various palms and little originality in any feature. The bamboo were fine. The over crowding is due to bus tours coming in from all of Morocco.

This is quite a nice garden on a property once owned by Yves St Laurent. Long queues to get in, but if you go down to the YSL museum and buy a combo ticket the queue is much shorter and you then get to walk straight into the gardens and Berber Museum without the wait.

The Berber Museum is well worth it. There are some wonderful artifacts there and a lot of interesting historical information. The lighting is very poor, so if you want to read the info sheets take your best reading glasses.

The YSL Museum is a waste of money unless you like modern art. There are a range of YSL dresses and accessories to look at. I’m not into that sort of thing so didn’t spend more than 10 mins there.

The gardens are peaceful and a nice chance to sit away from the crowds of the Medina. You don’t need more than an hour to do all three. Total cost on the combo ticket is 180 dirhams.

I don’t think the whole gardens/museum complex is worth queueing an hour for though. If you are short of time you won’t really be missing anything spectacular. It’s a pity it’s not just possible to see the Berber Museum by itself, as that was the best bit.

Avoid the queue by buying the combined ticket from the YSL museum (it's not a big museum you're basically paying extra to avoid the queue). The gardens were bigger than I was expecting and they're well cared for with that beautiful blue building which now houses the Berber museum (again not big but with an interesting design especially the jewellery room). Interesting place with a visit.

The garden itself is lovely and very beautiful. However be warned that the gardens are very busy and the atmosphere is ruined by a mob of tourists taking selfies and queuing for an opportunity for photos at the best spots. I would suggest arriving early and buying the combo ticket with YSL museum to save money and avoid queuing for tickets.

One definitely feels transported out of Marrakech into glorious green gardins when walking through the Jardin Majorelle, which hosts some unique looking trees, and plants. This is a nice way to spend a morning or afternoon though I do not know how much entrance cost because it was included in our tour. If the entrance fee is hefty... one might wish to reconsider unless they truly have an interest in this type of attraction. There are parks and gardens in every city and I would think a traveler might be more interested in the more unique aspects of this city especially if the price tag is heavy. With that said... it was a lovely way to spend an hour or two.

Get here around 8:30 and it is nearly deserted otherwise it gets extremely busy. Queues to get entrance tickets get very long from about 10;00 onward and seemed slow ro clear so we gave up on our first attempt to visit. If you like gardens this is a peach.

We escaped to this oasis on a hot afternoon in June. Really liked the fact that you could get a combination ticket for the Yves Saint-Laurent museum, gardens and Berber Museum, and we spent a couple of hours exploring it all (and you could easily spend more time in the garden). Loved the water features and the walking paths. Read a bit about the history of Majorelle (and YSL and Bergé for a full appreciation). Would definitely return on future visits to Marrakech.

Not realising that we should have booked in advance before we left the UK, we followed advice to arrive at the garden early - 8.30 a.m. and found only half a dozen people in the queue ahead of us. We were able to wander in peace for an hour before the coaches arrived! We skipped the crowded cafe (good decision) and headed to the adjacent YSL Museum at around 10.30 and with our combined tickets were able to dodge the already lengthy queue. I can honestly say the Museum blew us away! The design of the building and the way in which the exhibition of designs, films and biography has been curated was enthralling. We found the cafe here excellent - smart, quiet, and not as pricey as it looks. Overall, come early; Le Jardin in late February was pleasant but not outstanding (but thank goodness it was saved from the developers) - Do not miss the YSL museum.

Beautiful gardens with stunning colours and a most eclectic mix of plants and trees. Resist the temptation to take photos every 5m and just enjoy the beauty of this garden.

Best to arrive early, as once it gets busy, the garden does feel a little crowded. Also, if you weren't able to buy online, the earlier you arrive, the shorter the queue for tickets!!

Buy a combined ticket if you can and see the YSL Museum and Berber Museum at the same time - both definitely worth visiting.

Loved it here. The gardens are well maintained and beautiful. Lots of different plants. There’s a Berber museum inside which was really interesting and you only pay an extra 10 DHM to visit. We didn’t have to queue to get in and this was around 12.30 in the afternoon. Children under 12 are free.
Definitely recommend!
