  • It will be just sitting in the Botanical Garden of Tenerife... but the place has disappointed us. Small and without great charm, unless you're a fan of designer Yves Saint Laurent

  • Visiting Marrakech, we absolutely wanted to go visit the Majorelle garden. The place is beautiful and very colorful! You get lost among the many plants. We then took a cup of tea at the cafe inside the garden Mint. The WiFi is possible. Jama El Fna it is possible to take the bus 4 to get the Majorelle garden, 30 dirhams per person.

  • Really interesting oasis of peace and tranquility. There are some great historical exhibits mapping out Morocco's past. The gardens are stunning and well maintained. Sadly we went on a changeable day weather wise but in the sunshine is where it really comes into its own.
  • It wonderful what money and nice management can achieve. The garden space is pretty average but the colors and the plant's arrangement turn this dull square into a cool oasis of tranquility. The small museum is also well kept. It has an amazing infinity room showcasing traditional jewelry.
  • The Art Nouveau style Moroccan garden is relaxing and charming. Strange plants are eye-attracting. With a taste of Yves Saint Laurent. Berber cultural museum is a must-go site. A delicate display of Berber people culture with detailed explanation.
  • Beautiful garden. You can feel the peace as soon as you enter. Beautiful museum to visit as well about Majorelle and Yves Saint Laurent. Definitely the best place to visit in Marrakesh !
  • Love the colour of Majorelle blue. Really worth the entrance fee! Beautiful garden full of plants&also a beautiful museum.

Where to stay in Marrakech

Marrakech boasts a huge number of lodgings, concentrated mostly near the medina or in the "Ville Nouvelle." For a budget-friendly stay, opt for one of the hostels or affordable hotels that line the historic quarter's narrow alleyways. Many travelers choose to stay in a restored mansion that serves as a hotel--you'll find this type of accommodation plentiful in Marrakech. In the new part of town, you'll encounter a number of quality mid-market hotels with modern facilities.
