  • It can get very crowded. It has beautiful gardens however, it is a very small place. Loved the architecture and contrasting colors of structures.  more »
  • beautiful gardens to lose yourself. The que to get in moves fast so dont panic. Easy to find on foot from the main square too. maybe a 30 minute walk.  more »

  • From the perspective of 3 visitors... this is a beautiful garden. My love for cacti is intensified! The blue is impressive and the bamboo sky tall! We did not visit the cafe, it seemed full and we had other plans. Be warned, we visited in November and it was by far the fullest attraction we visited, with many eager to get that photo! So be patient or find a different garden to visit. We did queue, but the wait was not excessive to enter. To us it was worth the visit.
  • Jardin Majorelle in Marrakesh in south of Morocco is one of the most visited cities in the city. It's founded by French painter Jacques Majorelle. The garden contains many exotic plants with Moroccan architecture. Lovely place to visit but in the and you discover that's not very magic as they tell to Marrakesh visitors. But I enjoyed the visit.
  • Lovely garden, visited in a group of 8 people. Lovely collection of Flora and fauna. Loved the place. Their were some annoying tourists who were taking photos of children, had to report to security about it. Good day out, we didn't find much food variety.
  • Wow! Definitely visit this place when you come to Marrakech. You won’t be disappointed. Lots of variety from the plants and houses you will see here. Loved just walking around the taking lots of photos. If you prefer taking photos without too many people in then, my recommendation is come here first in the day and get the combined ticket which gets you into the YSL museum as well so you don’t have to queue up again later. This place gets packed around 10am onwards so come early! :)
  • Get there early to avoid crowds. Beautiful grounds, well kept, take your time looking around and enjoy the gardens. Had some lovely conversations with some of the groundskeepers about the history of the place as well as some stories they shared.
