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.

“Manicured gardens with colour”
Reviewed January 7, 2013

Once a former holiday home of Yves St Laurent, these gardens are a wonderful splash of colour with coloured terracotta pots scattered everywhere and the painted brickwork of the little waterways, contrasted by the myriad of cacti and palms in the immaculate manicured planting areas. Round a corner and you have a totally different perspective of the same view with the vivid blue of the main house and adjacent museum peeking at you from a distance. Mornings are probably the best time to wander quietly around these lovely gardens, prior to the avalanche of bus loads of tourists who seem to descend here around lunctime onwards. There is a lovely little courtyard cafe within two minutes of the main house where you can sit in the sun and have your refreshment served to you by the bustling waiters. These gardens are a must do item on your list of things to see and do in Marrakech. PS the museum is at an extra cost and is not included in your 50 Dirham entrance fee.

“Calm in the middle of chaos!!”
Reviewed January 7, 2013

Jardin Majorelle is in a central location but so serine! A very pretty garden with water features, beautiful plants and lots of colour. My fiance to be honest was pretty bored but he doesn't appreciate things like I do! The house is beautiful which is now a museum, we didn't get a chance to go in as we strolled rather slowly around. Glad we went but wouldn't need to go again.

“Worth to see”
Reviewed January 7, 2013

The garden is gorgeous! You could find a lot of interesting tropical plants there. You could also visit the Memorial of Yves Saint Laurent which is inside the garden.
