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.

“Amazing Cactii”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 11, 2013

It is a pretty garden with large and amazingly large Cactii. The atmosphere is serene and lush. It houses a YSL museum, a memorial and a beautiful store with lovely things. Plenty of benches around to rest while absorbing in the greenery.

Apparently this belonged to YSL and a small building in the garden has been painted in this eye catching blue which has the touch of a creative master

“Nice samll garden”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 11, 2013

This is a nice small garden. You will porbably finish up the tour of the garden in less than 30 minutes. However, the colors are abosloutely beautiful and your will find a vriety of cactus plants.

“Go early and have the garden to yourself!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 10, 2013

We were lucky to spend time in the garden early on ad Saturday morning! it was perfect! before the tourist buses arrived. We did not try the cafe and the gift shop was very expensive, postcards were 10 Dhs each. Outside the garden is a small kiosk selling more postcards. The garden is immaculate and very peaceful in such a busy city.

“One of the highlights of Marrakech - a must see”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 10, 2013

This garden, bought and restored by Yves Saint Laurent is a lovely oasis in Marrakech.

The YSL took the garden, restored the planting and walkways and added his own splash of colour which turns this into a magnificent and fabulous creation.

It is a bit out of the centre so you can either get there via a long walk over some busy roads or you can get a taxi. There are plenty of taxis to get you back. Or I'm told you can hire a horse and buggy from the Jemma al Fna to take you and bring you back.

Either way, this is a must-see. But go early morning or late in the afternoon to avoid the crowds.

“A nice bit of peace and tranquility”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 10, 2013

The garden is very peaceful and full of beautiful desert plants and bamboo. It was rather full of people, mainly French, but it was still very enjoyable. The small museum was extremely interesting and they managed to pack a lot in to a very small space. At 75 dirham, it is not the best value of the sights of Marrakech.
