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.

“Something to remember”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 5, 2013

The garden is really unique with everything from giant bamboo to palms and cactus with ponds filled with lotus plants. The color throughout is called " Majorelle Blue" . We've never seen a blue like it anywhere.

“Beautiful Gardens”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 5, 2013

The gardens are an oasis of calm in Marrakech. Especially good place if you enjoy succulents and cacti although there is much more. Also a very interesting small museum.

“Don't bother”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 5, 2013

Really, do not bother going there. The staff at our Riad told us not to bother going and they were right. It has absolutely nothing to do with Marrakech or anything Moroccan at all. It's just a pretty average, pointless, dull collection of plants with tourists taking pictures of them. That's it. That is all there is to it.
You shuffle along with all the people who've been bussed in or dropped off by a calesh driver fancying a break, you stand and wait as tourists take pictures of themselves in front of a cactus, then you shuffle along until the next photo opportunity (of a person in front of a cactus).
Total waste of half an hour and 20 dhiram. Walk up the road and go into the medina and see something real instead.

“Stunning”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 5, 2013

Every trip to Marrakech needs a detour to see this wonderful place, a peaceful garden that serves as a monument to Yves St Laurent who lived nearby and made improvements here. Beautiful plants from all around the world, and shade from tall bamboo and palm trees make this a nice break from the bustle of Marrakech and the medina.

“Expensive, small & rude staff”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 4, 2013

This garden is very small. You're round it in 15 minutes and it's expensive to get in. It's also crawling with people, so there's no atmosphere. I don't understand how people describe it as peaceful when all you can hear is traffic from the main road outside. The worst thing was a member of staff who got very rude and aggressive with me after I took a photo of some plants and a path. There was a possibility he might be in the photo (from a big distance) and this seemed to upset him hugely. He stood over me manhandling my camera (and me) and kept shouting until I deleted the photo! Very strange and unacceptable behaviour in a public place packed with people taking photos! Do yourselves a favour, and give this place a miss.
